Dodgers: Trevor Bauer’s Reportedly Not Wanted Back in Clubhouse, Leave Extended

Major League Baseball once again received approval from the Major League Baseball Players Association to extend Dodgers right-handed pitcher, Trevor Bauer’s administrative leave. The latest extension will keep Bauer out until after August 6th.

We discuss the latest developments involving the embattled hurler who is under investigation for sexual assualt allegations. He is also battling a temporary restraining order in court. We also dive into the likelihood of him pitching for the Dodgers again this year.


Plus, per an LA Times report, a majority of Bauer’s Dodger teammates don’t want to see him return to the team under any circumstances. With that in mind, we polled voters on Twitter to see how the fan base feels about the pitcher.

With close to 3,000 votes from true blue fans, the majority of fans are on the “no” side of the ledger. 

While Bauer deals with problems of his own, the Dodgers have kept their focus on the pennant chase against the Giants in the NL West. With the trade deadline coming this Friday, LA has been linked to a multitude of starting pitchers on the rumor mill.

By all accounts the team is not planning for the return of Trevor Bauer, so adding a top of the rotation arm is the number one focus for LA president of baseball operations, Andrew Friedman.
