You might not expect it, because they're from different parts of the world and speak different languages, but Yasiel Puig and Hyun-Jin Ryu forged quite a bond since joining the Los Angeles Dodgers last season.
The bromance between the two is still going strong in 2014. They've been palling around this week, especially Friday during the Dodgers' community caravan. I'd suggest cueing up Randy Newman's version of "You've Got a Friend In Me" before enjoying the rest of this post.
Look! They've traded jerseys.

This was earlier in the week, when they saw each other in the weight room.
No, Yasiel, he doesn't want to play soccer.
Back rubs for your best bud.
A few more fun bonus scenes from the Dodgers caravan on Friday. Ryu doesn't like snakes, but Puig does like fresh baked goods.

He probably took an extra cupcake with him to give to Ryu, don't you think?
