Trevor Bauer has been hit with one of the longest suspensions in baseball history. He has been suspended from Major League Baseball after being accused of sexual misconduct in 2021.
Beginning Friday, the Dodgers pitcher will be suspended for 324 games, the equivalent of two full regular seasons. This is without pay and was leveled for violating its joint domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse policy. Since July, he has been on the MLB’s administrative leave and has not played in a game.
According to Joel Sherman of The Post, he will not receive credit for any time spent on administrative leave and he will not be fit to play until 2024. Trevor has rejected the accusations multiple times, claiming that the activities were consensual. He did it again on Friday after the suspension was announced, via his Twitter account.
“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.”
Brittany Ghiroli and Katie Strang of The Athletic reported on June 30 that a woman had received a temporary restraining order against Bauer after alleging he had sexually abused her twice. He allegedly choked her until she passed out, punched her many times, and performed sexual acts on her without her consent, according to the woman. Stay tuned to Thirsty for more updates.
