Yasiel Puig

Fends Off Bad Spanish for

Taste of Cuba

L.A. Dodgers sensation Yasiel Puig went back to Cuba last night -- or as close as he's gonna get to it in Hollywood ... and a TMZ camera guy was there to roll out the bad Spanglish welcome mat.

Puig hit up El Floridita restaurant in Hollywood last night for some of L.A.'s most authentic Cuban food and music -- and on the way out our guy hit him up about ... "los playoffs."

Gotta give our guy credit ... Puig's English ain't so good yet, so we gave it the old high school Spanish try. Shout out to Google Translate too.

By the way, Puig is cruising in his white Rolls-Royce ... definitely NOT an authentic Cuban ride.

He has an expensive car. So, basically what we have here is another non-story.

He can work on English after he graduates to high school level base running skills.

Who named this restaurant. I bet he laughed. Try La FLoridita not El Floridita.

Funny how a guy who can't speak English apparently has no trouble getting a driver's license in this country.
