After two incidents of reckless driving in eight months, Yasiel Puig has decided to relinquish the steering wheel.

Los Angeles Dodgers president Stan Kasten said he spoke with Puig on Thursday, and the 23-year-old outfielder told him he has hired a cousin to drive him around for the time being.

"I give him credit for taking that step if nothing else," Kasten said during a radio appearance on ESPNLA 710.

In April last year, Puig was clocked going 97 mph in a 50 mph zone in Tennessee, but he had those reckless driving and speeding charges dismissed after serving 12 hours of community service. Puig was charged with reckless driving again last month for allegedly driving 110 mph in a 70 mph zone in Florida.

Puig batted .319 with 19 home runs in 104 games last season, finishing second to Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez in NL Rookie of the Year balloting.
