MIAMI — Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig suffered a swollen eye and facial bruises during a fight with a bouncer.
Miami police spokesman Major Delrish Moss says the injuries happened Wednesday night as the Cuban player was leaving the Blue Martini bar at bouncers' request following an argument with his sister.
Moss says that "at some point" Puig and a bouncer began to fight, leaving Puig with the swollen left eye and "minor bumps and bruises" to his face. He says the bouncer got a busted lip and minor facial bruises.
The spokesman says the bouncer claimed Puig sucker-punched him; Puig said the bouncer got too aggressive. Moss says neither wanted to press charges.
Limited to 72 games this past season because of hamstring issues, Puig hit .255 with 11 homers and 30 RBIs.
