Reds´ Puig addresses trade rumours: I don´t know what´s going to happen

July 31 2019 3:36 AM

Cincinnati Reds outfielder Yasiel Puig is focused on his performances on the field amid speculation over his future.

The Reds are reportedly considering moving the 28-year-old before this week's deadline.

Puig was asked about the rumours when he met with reporters on Tuesday before Cincinnati's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

"I try to do my job," Puig said, via Cincinnati.com. "I don't know what's going to happen with that. I don't know if I'm going to stay here or if I'm going to the teams that need [me]. I'm happy here with my team-mates. I enjoy hanging out here with my team-mates, but at the end of the day, this is part of the job and business."

Puig is slashing .255/.305/.480 with 22 home runs and 60 RBIs in 99 games with Cincinnati this season. He has also scored 51 runs and stolen 13 bases.

"When I'm going into each AB, [I'm] looking for something I can hit, something in the zone that I can make contact [with]," Puig said earlier this month about his approach this season, via Cincinnati.com. "In the first couple of weeks, I go into there to try to get hits and swing at every ball. Now, I slowed down myself, try to put the ball in play and that's helped me out a lot."

Puig spent the first six years of his MLB career with the Los Angeles Dodgers before he was sent to the Reds in a December trade.

The Atlanta Braves are reportedly interested in acquiring Puig while the Reds could also move starter Tanner Roark.
