Puig issues statement about magazine article

SAN FRANCISCO -- Through his agent, Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig declined Wednesday to respond to an article by Los Angeles Magazine detailing the Cuban defector's harrowing journey to the Major Leagues.

"I'm aware of the recent articles and news accounts," Puig is quoted in a release provided to the Dodgers by the agent, Adam Katz. "I understand that people are curious and have questions, but I will have no comment on this subject. I'm represented on this matter, and I'm only focused on being a productive teammate and helping the Dodgers win games."
