Trevor Bauer won’t pitch more in 2021 in MLB

Trevor Bauer won’t pitch more in 2021 in MLB

Trevor Bauer, who has been on administrative leave since July 2, will not throw another pitch for the Dodgers this season.
Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association agreed on Friday to extend Bauer’s license until the end of the postseason. Placement on administrative leave is not a plea of ​​guilt.
Bauer has been out of the team since a woman filed for an ex parte restraining order against her, claiming that Bauer physically gotten with her during two encounters earlier this year.
Last month, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge lifted that restraining order. The Pasadena (California) Police Department also recently turned over the findings of its criminal investigation to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, which will ultimately decide whether to bring criminal charges against Bauer.
The MLB investigation into the allegations is ongoing. Because of that, and given there are a limited number of games left on the Dodgers’ schedule, it was determined that Bauer would not be physically ready to return to the mound this season.
“Today, Mr. Bauer agreed to extend his administrative leave during the playoffs in a good faith measure and in an effort to minimize any distractions to the Dodgers organization and his teammates,” Bauer’s co-agents said, John Fetterolf and Rachel Luba, in a statement. “He continues to cooperate with the MLB investigation and refutes the unfounded allegations against him.”
Under MLB’s Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy, Commissioner Rob Manfred can discipline Bauer regardless of whether criminal charges are brought against the right-hander.
The Dodgers, who signed Bauer to a three-year, $ 102 million deal last offseason, had already been operating as if the right-hander wouldn’t pitch again in 2021. The team acquired Max Scherzer on the trade deadline and he also traded in for left-hander Danny Duffy to provide depth.(LA
