In case you missed it, the Indians have acquired Yasiel Puig in a three-team trade with the Reds and Padres. Typically when a trade is finalized and pending physicals, teams will remove the players from the games they are currently in.
UPDATE: The league stepped in and removed Puig from the game by way of ejection.

The Reds did not. And Yasiel Puig got into a brawl.

Puig is *still* out there. I'm not sure how the Cincy front office hasn't stormed the field to rush him off. pic.twitter.com/vizakCqZW7— Mike Petriello (@mike_petriello) July 31, 2019
We're like 15 minutes into the Yasiel Puig experience and it's already everything I ever could've imagined https://t.co/YWCN1yUa5V— Jay Cannon (@JayTCannon) July 31, 2019
