The deal became official on Wednesday morning. But before it was, Puig was involved in a bench-clearing brawl alongside his Reds teammates during the ninth inning of Tuesday’s night game against the Pittsburgh Pirates minutes after the trade had been reported.

It’s difficult to imagine there being a larger deal in terms of the big names, prospects and number of teams involved.
How it helps the Indians
For Cleveland, this trade adds much needed power to a lineup that’s produced the 11th fewest home runs (140) in MLB this season. Puig and Reyes have each popped at least 20 so far in 2019, which makes their return unprecedented in MLB history.

How it helps the Reds
For Cincinnati, it adds another ace type pitcher to build around as the team looks to take another step toward competing in the NL Central. Bauer will form a strong 1-2 punch with the vastly underrated Luis Castillo.
How it helps the Padres
As for San Diego, the team gets younger and more athletic. Taylor Trammell is the player to watch in this trade. He’s viewed as one of the most talented position player prospects in baseball right now. When he joins Manny Machado, Fernando Tatis Jr. and Luis Urias, that will give San Diego a fun core to build on.
