Yasiel Puig dropped the appeal of a three-game suspension levied for his involvement in a brawl during his final game with the Cincinnati Reds.
The now-Cleveland Indians outfielder, Puig began serving his suspension Monday as his club began a three-game series with the Boston Red Sox.
Puig was a volatile participant in a benches-clearing incident between the Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates on July 30. The fracas began shortly after Puig was dealt to the Indians as part of a three-team trade that sent right-hander Trevor Bauer to the Reds.
Puig, 28, has been rolling through the American League during his short stay with the Indians. He's batting .357 with one homer and six RBIs in 11 games for Cleveland.
