Yasiel is so strong, he snaps his bat checking swing

MILWAUKEE -- Add another page to the legend of Yasiel Puig, who snapped a bat at the handle while checking his swing without ever touching the ball on Friday night.

Puig stopped swinging at a 2-1 sinker from Zach Duke and was left with the handle in his hands while the rest of the bat snapped off and landed about 20 feet in front of home plate. Puig went on to walk on a 3-2 pitch.

Puig had gone 0-for-3 in his previous three at-bats.
