Puig’s final act as a Red, or first as an Indian, is brawling to defend his teammates. This is going to be fun

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.

Want to talk about bringing some fire to the lifeless Indians lineup? Here you go.
