Yasiel Puig’s rough All-Star debut

MINNEAPOLIS — He got shut out at the Home Run Derby. He went 0 for 3 with three strikeouts at the All-Star game. He made a game but imperfect leaping attempt to catch Mike Trout’s triple in the first inning. Overall, Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Yasiel Puig had a rough couple of nights among the stars.

Despite a lack of positive personal results at his first All-Star game, Puig said Tuesday night he wasn’t unhappy about how it all went at Target Field.
