Six players have been suspended for their involvement in Tuesday’s brawl between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Cincinnati Reds game. Both managers from each team were also suspended.

Pirates pitcher Keone Kela was suspended the most, as he received a 10-game suspension. His suspension comes from throwing at Danny Dietrich’s head.

Pirates infielder José Osuna received a five-game suspension. His teammate Kyle Crick also received a three-game suspension.

Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle also received a two-game suspension.

Reds pitcher Amir Garrett — who started the bench-clearing brawl in the ninth inning — received an eight-game suspension. He ran to the Pirates’ dugout and threw a punch that started the incident.

His teammate Jared Hughes received a three-game suspension. Reds manager David Bell received a six-game suspension.

Yasiel Puig — who was with the Reds when the brawl happened — received a three-game suspension. Tuesday was his final day with the Reds before he was traded to the Cleveland Indians.

“The incidents between these two Clubs remain a source of concern, and it’s reflected by the level of discipline we are handing down today,” MLB Chief Baseball Officer Joe Torre said. “Everyone on the field should be aware of the example they are setting for fans, particularly young people. I firmly expect these two managers and all others to hold their players accountable for appropriate conduct and to guide them in the right direction.”
