Puig and Bauer were actually part of the same trade in 2019 that sent the outfielder to Cleveland and the pitcher to Cincinnati.
Puig was supposed to sign with the Braves last season, but a positive COVID-19 test scuttled those plans. He did not end up playing last season.
Puig turns 30 in December and batted .267 with 24 home runs and 19 stolen bases in 2019. He comes with somewhat of a warning for Luba, as he was dropped by his agency in 2018. He later signed with Beverly Hills Sports Council.
