Yasiel Puig didn’t let a trade stop him from getting into a fight Tuesday night to defend his former teammates.
Puig was traded from the Cincinnati Reds to Cleveland Indians while the Reds were playing the Pittsburgh Pirates. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Hottest Women On Instagram)

You’d think Puig would have packed up and prepared to ship out immediately. Nope! When a physical altercation got underway, the baseball star was out there defending his former teammates.

That’s the definition of a bro move. Puig didn’t even hesitate to get into the scrum, despite the fact he technically wasn’t even on the Reds anymore.
All that mattered was that he was in the stadium, a scrum had begun and he was going to be there to defend his former teammates.
Something tells me he won’t be paying for a beer anytime soon around them.

Major props to Puig for not backing down, despite the fact nobody would have really blamed him if he left the stadium the moment the trade went down.
I’m not sure the Indians were pumped about their new player fighting, but a man has to do what a man has to do.
You never let your teammates get into a dust up alone.
