MLB 15 The Show News Post


Yasiel Puig has been battling the injury bug this year, including missing the entire month of May due to a hamstring issue. In the month of June when he returned, he hit just 1 home run, while driving in 6. While he did bat .303 in the month of June, his average in July dipped to .195 and is now batting .254 on the season.

On Wednesday, he delivered 2 hits, including a home run and 3 RBI in a win over the Oakland Athletics. After the game he attributed the success to playing baseball video games.

Here is a quote from Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times:

Quote:
Yasiel Puig on ending slump: "I just stopped playing soccer video games. I've found, when I play baseball video games, I do better."

One would assume he is referring to MLB 15 The Show, since he is the cover athlete of the game.

It would be funny if it was actually Super Mega Baseball that got him back into rhythm.

That's cool, I've always wondered about MLB players playing The Show, NFL players playing Madden, etc.

I've been bitten by Rocket League too, Yasiel.

I go back to play baseball and I'm late at everything.
