Outfielder Yasiel Puig of the Los Angeles Dodgers has received a two-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for fighting and inciting a bench-clearing incident in the bottom of the seventh inning of his Club's Tuesday night game against the San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium. Joe Torre, Chief Baseball Officer for Major League Baseball, made the announcement.

In addition, Giants catcher Nick Hundley has received an undisclosed fine for his role in the incident.

Unless appealed, the suspension of Puig is scheduled to begin on Friday, when the Dodgers are to play at Seattle. If Puig elects to appeal, then the discipline issued to him will be held in abeyance until the process is complete.
