Just hours after Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer was hit with the longest suspension in MLB history, a third woman came forward and accused him of se*ual assault. Two women claimed they were choked unconscious by Bauer and then assaulted until they regained consciousness.
The third accuser told the Washington Post the same thing happened numerous times during their years-long relationship and that she decided to come forward after seeing Bauer claim his accusers were coming forward only because they wanted to make financial gain.
Bauer and her third accuser apparently met through a dating app in 2013, Cleveland’s Triple-A affiliate, the Columbus Clippers.
Bauer hit with a 324-game suspension
“Commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr. announced today that following an extensive investigation by MLB’s Department of Investigations, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer has received a suspension for 324 championship season games (representing two full seasons) without pay, effective today, for violating Major League Baseball’s Joint Domestic Violence, Se*ual Assault and Child Abuse Policy,” the league said in a statement.
“In accordance with the terms of the Policy, the Commissioner’s Office will not issue any further statements at this point in time." After the suspension was announced, Bauer denied the allegations and revealed he would appeal the decision.
“In the strongest possible terms, I deny committing any violation of the league’s domestic violence and se*ual 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," Bauer tweeted.
Bauer hasn't pitched in an MLB game since June 2021. Bauer has denied any wrongdoings from the beginnings and he continues to claim that he is innocent. Some believe Bauer will never again get a chance to play in an MLB game.
