MLB Suspends Trevor Bauer for Two Seasons!

MLB has suspended Trevor Bauer for two seasons; the Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher plans to fight his suspension.

On Friday, Major League Baseball announced a 324-game suspension for Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer, the equivalent of two full seasons and the sport’s harshest punishment for domestic violence.

Bauer quickly issued a statement indicating his intention to appeal the suspension, making him the first player to do so under MLB’s domestic violence policy.

Bauer’s statement stated, “In the strongest possible words, I deny committing any violation of the league’s domestic violence and sexual assault policies.” “This action is being appealed, and I anticipate to win. My representatives and I have maintained the confidentiality of the proceedings throughout this period.”

Bauer, 31, was accused of sexual assault by a San Diego woman who sought a restraining order, alleging that he went too far with consensual rough sex during two encounters in April and May last year. In August, a Los Angeles judge refused the lady a permanent restraining order, and in February, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office declined to press criminal charges.

However, MLB, which has the authority to punish players even if they have not been convicted of a crime, looked into at least one other alleged sexual assault involving a lady from Ohio.Trevor Bauer

Bauer signed a three-year, $102 million deal with the Dodgers in February 2021, following his capture of the National League Cy Young Award during the COVID-19 shortened 2020 season.

He was on administrative leave for the last 81 regular-season games, plus another 18 to start the 2022 season. However, because his 324-game suspension does not begin until Friday, he does not receive credit for time served previously.

Bauer’s punishment would extend until the 19th game of the 2024 season, when his three-year contract with the Dodgers would have expired.

Bauer will not be compensated by the Dodgers, who will lose about $28 million this year and $32 million next year. Bauer will not be able to report to the team while he is suspended unless his appeal is upheld by an arbitrator.
