Yasiel Puig Compared to MLB Legends

In just over a calendar year, Yasiel Puig has taken Major League Baseball by storm. He will play in his 162nd career game later this week, giving him 1 full-year of MLB service. He's bound to make his first All-Star appearance this season, and is putting up MVP numbers in a big way.

To appreciate how great he's been, here's how he compares to some of the best outfielders of all-time, based on their 162-game averages:

Yasiel Puig:

691 PA, 100 R, 198 H, 74 XBH, 31 HR, 84 RBI, 16 SB, 66 BB, 145 SO, .328/.406/.560/.967, 170 OPS+
