On To The Next One: Yasiel Puig
According to a press release from the agency, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig has made a change in his representation as he has signed with BHSC for both his on and off-field endeavors. This includes managing her personal brand and philanthropic efforts as well. At BHSC he will be represented by President Dan Horowitz and the Director of Latin American Operations, Cesar Suarez.
“We are proud to welcome Yasiel to the BHSC family,” said Horowitz. “The interview process was a mutually beneficial opportunity to ensure that we are a fit for one another. As is often the case with high-profile personalities, there are many character traits hidden from public view. We immediately found Yasiel to be engaging, creative and passionate about his endeavors both on and off the field. We look forward to working with Yasiel to carry out his vision for his career and amplifying his impact domestically and internationally through the Wild Horse (his nickname from Vin Scully) Children’s Foundation.”
The 6’2”, 240-pound Cuba-native is in his sixth MLB season, all with the Dodgers. For his career, he is a .280/.356/.471 hitter with 85 home runs and 272 RBI. On the young 2018 season, he is hitting .222/.283/.296 in 14 games. The story of his defection from Cuba made headlines upon his MLB debut, after trying to defect to Mexico 13 times. He tried becoming a legal resident so he could become eligible to sign a contract in the MLB.
He signed a seven-year, $42 million deal with the Dodgers in June 2012 and is set to become a free agent after the 2018 MLB season.
He was previously represented by Adam Katz of Wasserman.
