Dodgers News: Yasiel Puig Suspended for Explicit Hand Gesture
Joe Torre, MLB’s Chief Baseball Officer, and former Dodgers manager announced on Wednesday that Yasiel Puig has received a one-game suspension and a fine for using an explicit hand gesture to silence heckling fans. It was just after Puig opened the scoring with a two-run blast in the 2nd inning, you can visually see Puig crossing home plate and using his hands to speak his mind to the fans.

However, it has been reported that Puig will appeal the suspension and we will most likely see Puig for at least the next couple of days. So tune into the game to see what kind of reaction Puig gets from the Cleveland fans and the team.
Puig admitted that what he did was a mistake and he should not have let the hecklers get the best of his emotions.
