While Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer, a very important legal victory was scored in the courts after obtaining the withdrawal of the restraining order against him that a woman with whom he had sexual relations, things are still not looking good for the current Cy Young of the National League, since her sexual violence case is still ongoing and has not yet been released of either an MLB sanction or criminal charges against you.
How, according to ESPN reporter Jeff Passan, Trevor Bauer’s season is already over due to the fact that the investigation process of both the Los Angeles prosecution and MLB will take until the end of the current baseball year, it is possible that even if it comes out Well rid of all the investigations against him, he becomes an “outcast” and no major league team seeks his services because of the bad publicity the pitcher has earned.
Passan consulted with various sources within MLB, including executives, managers, coaches and players, and concluded based on their testimonies that very few teams are willing to risk having Bauer on their rosters, running the same fate as others. accused of domestic violence such as the recent cases of the Cuban Yasiel Puig and the Mexican Roberto Osuna, who after their respective cases have had to continue their careers in the Mexican Baseball League in the absence of a major league signature.
Even his fellow Dodgers apparently do not want him back in the clubhouse, considering him a “non grata” person by the great veterans of the roster and who would do everything possible to convince the management of his influence so that he does not play again. with the blue uniform despite the fact that he still has a current contract and his salary continues to be paid while he is on administrative leave.
In addition, there is a feeling among several players that Bauer and his lawyers broke a code among the same players after the defense attorney “muddled” other players like Fernando Tatis Jr. and Mike Clevinger at the pitcher’s hearing to clean up his name, something that did not please the vast majority of players consulted by Passan.
The truth is that Bauer has a very difficult time beyond the legal field to play again, with many obstacles standing between him and being able to return to a major league mound again.
