Dodgers: Bauer Placed on Leave by MLB, Everything We Know and How Will LA Respond?

On Friday, MLB placed Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer on seven-day administrative leave effective immediately. The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner is facing allegations of sexual assault and has since denied the allegations. We discuss everything we know so far and how the Dodgers will handle the situation moving forward.

Next, with Trevor Bauer out, LA filled his roster spot with reliever Brusdar Graterol. We discuss how the Dodgers plan to fill Bauer’s spot in the starting rotation and if they should build up David Price or Jimmy Nelson as starters. Plus, do the Dodgers need to make a trade for another starting pitcher?


In the aftermath of Bauer being put on administrative leave, the Dodgers now have to go back to the drawing board and look for a fifth starter in the rotation for the foreseeable future. Earlier today, we dropped another video on our YouTube channel about exploring the trade market. With the deadline less than a month away, Andrew Friedman will have his work cut out for him.
