While Los Angeles Dodgers star Yasiel Puig is coming off an incredible performance that earned him National League Player of the Week honors, he has once again suffered some misfortune away from the diamond.

According to TMZ Sports, Puig's house in the San Fernando Valley was burglarized for the fourth time on Tuesday night.

The burglars allegedly broke in through the back door of the house. Security cameras show three men leaving the property, and although the system sent an alert, police were unable to arrive until after the suspects were gone.

No word on what, if anything, was stolen.

As TMZ noted, Puig's home had previously been targeted on three occasions. The Dodgers outfielder had $500,000 in jewelry stolen from his house in March 2017 and $150 in costume jewelry swiped during Game 7 of the World Series last October, while there was also an attempted robbery in August.

After the second burglary, Puig made it clear to TMZ Sports that he wasn't sweating things. (Warning: NSFW language.)

"I ain't worried about that s--t," Puig told TMZ Sports in November 2017. "I have a f--king lot of money."

Puig is hitting .273 with 21 home runs, 20 doubles and 58 RBI in 115 games this season. He was named NL Player of the Week on Monday for the third time in his career after hitting .429/.500/1.190 with five homers, nine RBI, seven runs, one double and one stolen base over a seven-game stretch.

With 10 games to play, Los Angeles holds a 1.5-game lead over the Colorado Rockies in the NL West.
