Amir Garrett tries to fight the entire Pirates team, and Yasiel Puig is involved in the brawl — and ejected — after being traded to Indians


A lot happened in just a few minutes for the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night.

First, a blockbuster three-team trade was announced. The main details we’re aware of so far have starting pitcher Trevor Bauer going to the Reds, outfielders Yasiel Puig and Franmil Reyes — as well as pitcher Logan Allen — to the Cleveland Indians, and outfield prospect Taylor Trammell to the San Diego Padres.

Well, right after that trade was announced by various reporters to the Twitterverse, a brawl broke out in the Reds’ game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Great American Ball Park. And that brawl even involved Puig fighting on the Reds’ side… after a trade had reportedly been agreed to (the Reds’ dugout wasn’t aware of this, of course, or else he wouldn’t have still been in the game.).

But Puig being a part of the fight wasn’t even the craziest part of this fight. The craziest part of this fight would be Reds reliever Amir Garrett trying to fight the entire Pirates team himself.

While on the mound in the ninth inning, Garrett didn’t like some chatter he heard from the Pittsburgh dugout, and he went bonkers. The left-hander sprinted toward the Pirates’ dugout and threw some punches, with the benches naturally clearing to form a brawl.

Garrett and Puig were ejected for the Reds. Yes, Puig was ejected from a game with the Reds for fighting, minutes after we learned he’d been traded to the Indians.

Things started getting heated in the seventh when Pittsburgh reliever Keone Kela threw over Derek Dietrich’s head.

A lengthy suspension is surely coming for Garrett, and it will be interesting to see if one is coming for Puig too. That’s something the Indians certainly don’t want from their new outfielder.

Oh, and Garrett was also ejected once for fighting as a basketball player at St. John’s.
