From there, they are together the rest of the morning and early afternoon, running errands and doing the mounds of paperwork that come with being a new resident in a strange land.
They drive together to the game in Puig's Rolls-Royce — yeah, with his $42-million contract, he just had to have one. Though viewers won't see Bravo during the games, he will be hanging out in a dugout hallway in case Manager Don Mattingly needs him to translate or help Puig understand a baseball nuance.
After the game, the teacher and pupil drive back to the apartment where, as his Twitter followers know, Puig often doesn't fall asleep till after 2 a.m.
The only time that Bravo has to himself is between 6:30 and 9 a.m., when he exercises and walks down the street to the Food 4 Less to buy that day's groceries.
"When they asked me to be with Puig, I said I'd give it a shot, but I didn't know I was going to be this immersed," Bravo said.
Bravo, a Los Angeles native who attended Monte Vista High in Whittier, had been with the Dodgers for six years as their part-time director of cultural assimilation. He was hired by former college teammate Logan White, the Dodgers scouting director, who met him at Western New Mexico University.
"I'm just a normal dude with a regular job who was doing some work for the Dodgers on the side," he said. "But then the minute Puig was signed, they asked me to drop everything."
And so he has done exactly that, for minimal pay and little fame, unless you count the time some of his family members saw a glimpse of head in that dugout hallway during a televised game.
When Puig was swarmed by fans while attempting to eat at a Chipotle restaurant in San Francisco, Bravo was there to escort him away. When anyone wants to contact Puig for any reason, Bravo writes down their name and number in a tiny red notebook.
Wherever Puig has gone, Bravo has gone, the two men embarking on a journey with nobody quite knowing where it will end, or how.
"And here I thought, I was just supposed to be his English teacher," Bravo said.
Yeah, well, and the Dodgers thought Puig was just supposed to be an outfielder.
