Dodgers: Trevor Bauer Receives Massive Suspension From MLB
It appears that Major League Baseball has finally come to a decision on Trevor Bauer. The Dodgers pitcher has been on administrative leave since the Summer of last season after an incident with a woman in Pasadena. But the latest report is that they have finally made a call.
The Dodgers pitcher will be suspended for a whopping two years by Major League Baseball. That news comes via ESPN’s Jeff Passan, who is very rarely wrong about any sort of breaking news. That is a MASSIVE suspension for Bauer.

If that is the case, the Dodgers pitcher will more than likely issue an appeal. And that process for that can be quite grueling, often playing out for long periods of time. With this length of suspension, it could get very ugly.
The initial question from fans was if the time served from last year and this year would count against his two-year ban. But according to am570’s Dave Vassegh, that will not be the case. The Dodgers pitcher will start serving his 324-game suspension tonight.
Updated Statement from Bauer via Twitter:
“In the strongest possible terms, I deny committing any violation of the league’s domestic violence & sexual assault policy. I am appealing this action and expect to prevail. As we have throughout this process, my representatives & I respect the confidentiality of the proceedings.”

Dodgers: Kershaw Convinced Justin Turner Would Make a Great Manager
Can the Dodgers lodge a grievance to recoup half of Bauer’s 2021 salary and 18 games of his 2022 salary given this ruling was repeatedly delayed at their expense and the violation happened through no fault of the Dodgers? Why would team owners want to be out millions of dollars for a player that the MLB office would not allow to play under the presumption of innocence?
Outstanding! The Dodgers are rid of this scumbag and get significant salary relief. Win-win.
I do in any way shape or form not condone the actions of Trevor Bauer in engaging in Reproductive Activity outside the bounds of holy matrimony (fornication or adultery). That said I think MLB went way over the top with two full seasons and no credit for games already missed. The fact the judge declined to extend the injunction against Bauer and the fact that the DA declined to lay criminal charges is telling, in my opinion. I never heard of a player being suspended for two full seasons before. If the appeal does not get the suspension thrown out entirely I hope the suspension gets knocked down to a more reasonable amount of time such as say one full season with credit for time served.
With Bauer’s salary gone, welcome to a long term contract Mr. Trea Turner !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
