The Los Angeles Dodgers will find out if Yasiel Puig can handle being a star in Hollywood.

Watching Puig has been said to be a motivating force for Jorge Soler, the $30 million outfielder the Cubs believe will be a foundation piece in Theo Epstein’s rebuilding project.

The two Cuban players know each other but aren’t particularly close. Puig has drawn comparisons to Bo Jackson and will be pushed for next month’s All-Star Game in New York. Puig’s hitting .425 with six homers and 12 RBI through 19 games with the Dodgers, becoming a classic highlight-film player for the YouTube/Twitter generation.

The Cubs need that sort of organizational jolt, though it’s not coming anytime soon from advanced Class-A Daytona prospects like Soler and Javier Baez. A 31-43 team begins a three-city road trip on Tuesday night in Milwaukee with the understanding that the next five weeks will be all about the July 31 trade deadline and how they can maximize their selling potential.

The sense is the Cubs won’t view Puig as another one who got away, the way they’ve looked back on bids for Asian pitchers Yu Darvish and Hyun-Jin Ryu and felt handcuffed by ownership’s mid-market operating philosophy.

The Cubs understood Puig would be a high-risk, high-reward investment, and those off-the-field concerns showed up again in late April, when he was arrested in Chattanooga, Tenn., for reckless driving, speeding 97 mph in a 50 mph zone and not having proof of insurance.
