Dodgers: Trevor Bauer would not be suspended by MLB for his violence case

Trevor Bauer was on his way to having a good debut season with the Dodgers last year, however, it all came crashing down when a California woman came out in public that she had suffered sexual assault from the controversial starting pitcher.

Bauer’s case was analyzed by the police department of The Angels and taken to court, where he was ultimately acquitted of criminal charges by the judge responsible for sentencing. Even if he was found not guilty in a California court, Bauer has not yet been saved from being suspended by MLB or by his team, though Los Angeles Times columnist Bill Shaikin has revealed that the 31-year-old right-hander is unlikely to be punished by Major League Baseball’s front office, at least not during the prevailing strike between the league and the Players Union (MLBPA).

Bauer has been placed on administrative leave by MLB since July 2. His last start with the Dodgers was June 28. He was limited to just 17 starts and went 8-5 with a 2.59 ERA after 107 2/3 innings. At the moment it is unknown if the Los Angeles board plans to give him another chance in the rotation for the 2022 season.

While the expectation remains that Manfred will ultimately suspend Bauer, he likely won’t impose it until after the MLB lockout has passed and a new collective bargaining agreement is in place. What is known is that Manfred plans to ask the 2020 National League Cy Young Award winner to meet with MLB’s team of investigators, as required by league policy.
