Yasiel Puig on Jimmy Kimmel Live

In an effort to boost his efforts to win a starting spot in the National League outfield for the 2015 All-Star Game - voting ends Thursday night at 8:59 p.m. PT - Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig filmed a segment for Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday.

Puig filmed the segment with Guillermo Rodriguez, who asked Puig a series of questions before agreeing to vote for him for the All-Star Game, including if Puig was wearing a cup. "No, but I'm ready for anything," Puig said, smiling.

Puig replied to some questions in Spanish and some in English.

Asked if he felt bad when hitting a home run off a pitcher, Puig said, "No, I'm so happy."

Rodriguez countered with, "But you break their heart."

"Sometimes the pitcher breaks my heart, too," replied Puig.

Puig ranked third among National League outfielders when the final voting update was released on Tuesday. All-Star rosters will be announced on ESPN on Sunday afternoon, during the 4 p.m. edition of Baseball Tonight.
