MLB Won't Discipline Dodgers' Yasiel Puig for Club Incident

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder will not be punished for his involvement in an incident in a Miami club last fall

Dodgers-Puig Baseball
2 years ago

NEW YORK – Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig will not be punished for his involvement in an incident in a Miami club last fall.

Puig sustained a swollen eye and facial bruises on Nov. 26. Miami police spokesman Delrish Moss said at the time the injuries were sustained as Puig was leaving the Blue Martini at bouncers’ request following an argument with his sister.

MLB said Wednesday that it interviewed Puig and his sister and reviewed video from inside the club and the “investigation did not uncover any witness who supported the assault allegation.” Puig was not charged.

“Both Puig and his sister denied that an assault occurred, and the available video evidence did not support the allegation,” MLB said. “Barring the receipt of any new information or evidence, no discipline will be imposed on Puig in connection with the alleged incident.”

Puig’s lawyer, Jay Reisinger, said in a statement that “Yasiel greatly appreciates the support he has received from the Dodgers, his teammates and other players throughout baseball.”

“Now that the matter has been resolved and is behind him, Yasiel is looking forward to the 2016 season,” Reisinger said.

Puig was among three players investigated under the sport’s new domestic violence policy, agreed to by MLB and the players’ association last August after a series of incidents involving NFL players.

Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman agreed to a 30-game suspension without pay following an altercation with his girlfriend. Colorado shortstop Jose Reyes was suspended with pay pending an April 4 trial in Hawaii on a charge of abusing his wife at a Mauri resort. MLB said it will further investigate following the trial to determine whether Reyes deserves discipline.
