Power Shopping In Bev Hills …
Before Late Dodgers Arrival
Yasiel Puig was more than AN HOUR late to Dodger Stadium on Monday — missing a ring presentation from his former boss — and it’s all because he was out SHOPPING!
TMZ Sports shot video of the Cincinnati Reds star lunching at Il Pastaio in Beverly Hills around noon — and then going on a fancy shopping spree to some of the most expensive shops in L.A. … James Perse, Saint Laurent and more.
Our photog says Puig ventured out to Rodeo Drive and shopped until at least 3 PM — the exact time Puig was scheduled to meet with media members at Dodger Stadium.
The former Dodgers outfielder didn’t get to the Stadium until 4:10 — missing a planned media session.
Also, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts and owner Mark Walter tried to meet with all of the Dodgers who were traded to the Reds this off-season to present them with their 2018 NLCS rings … but since Puig was tardy, he missed that moment too.
The good news for Puig … when he did finally show up, he showed out — smacking a 2-run home run off Clayton Kershaw in the 1st inning.
The Dodgers battled back and ended up winning the game on a Joc Pederson walk-off home run in the 9th inning … a home run that sailed right over Puig’s head in right field.
