PUIG GETS INTO FIGHT WITH BOUNCER

MIAMI — Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig suffered a swollen eye and facial bruises during a fight with a bouncer. Miami police spokesman Maj. Delrish Moss said the injuries happened Wednesday night as the Cuban-born player was leaving the Blue Martini bar at bouncers' request after an argument with his sister. Moss said "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 said the bouncer got a busted lip and minor facial bruises. He said the bouncer claimed Puig sucker-punched him; Puig said the bouncer got too aggressive. Moss said neither wanted to press charges.
