For those who prefer their men to be tall, big and thick in all the right places: Here is another serving of the Los Angeles Dodgers' "mega-star" outfielder Yasiel Puig. That's about six-foot-three and 235 pounds of Cuban beef.
These images from last weekend's series with the San Francisco Giants. The 23-year-old Cuban-born Puig—pronounced "pwiy"—has become a contender for MVP, notes ESPN. "He’s batting .318 and is tied for the team lead with 17 walks, giving him a .408 on-base percentage. He also happens to lead the Dodgers with 29 RBIs."

Puig was one of the star players on the Cuban national baseball team. He made international news when he defected from Cuba in 2012 and signed a seven-year, $42 million contract with the Dodgers. Puig's incredible journey from Cuba to Los Angeles via Mexico involved human traffickers, smugglers, a drug cartel, a speedboat and a Santeria priest. The investigative report is detailed in the May issue of Los Angeles magazine.
