Yasiel Puig is really proud of catching nice-sized fish (pic)


Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Yasiel Puig took to Twitter early Thursday morning to showcase his angling abilities by posting a photo of what he reeled in during a recent fishing excursion.

It’s not explicitly clear when Puig was out fishing, as the the Dodgers enjoy an off-day Thursday before a three-game road trip to face the Toronto Blue Jays over the weekend. it’s possible the slugger tweeted out his catch shortly after getting it on the boat.

Puig truly is getting the entire social media thing down, as evidenced by not only his “Catch of the Day” tweet — nice use of emojis, by the way — but also how he somehow managed to track down a smack-talk post from new Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff from years ago only to reply kindly to the rookie signal-caller while adding the hashtag #PuigYourFriend.

Between that hashtag and the #PuigHungry in the above tweet, it’s safe to assume we’ll be seeing a lot more #Puig(insert word here) hashtags in the future.
