Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher and reigning NL Cy Young winner Trevor Bauer is in some hot water with authorities in Southern California after allegations of sexual assault were levied in his direction.
The alleged incidents took place back in April and May in California with the unnamed woman claiming she was left with two black eyes, bruises all over her body, cuts on her face, and anal bleeding. She also fell unconscious multiple times due to Bauer allegedly strangling her.
Now, MLB has taken action regarding Trevor Bauer and the alleged incident. The ace pitcher has been placed on seven-day administrative leave as the league looks into the situation.
“MLB’s investigations into the allegations made against Trevor Bauer is ongoing. While no determination in the case has been made, we have made the decision to place Mr. Bauer on seven-day administrative leave effective immediately,” MLB announced. “MLB continues to collect information in our ongoing investigation concurrent with Pasadena Police Department’s active criminal investigation. We will comment further at the appropriate time.”
Trevor Bauer was not with his Dodgers teammates as they visited President Joe Biden at the White House to celebrate their 2020 World Series title on Friday.
For his part, the pitcher denies the allegations and claims that the two had consensual sex twice during the timeline listed above.
We’ll obviously have more information as it becomes available.
