Trevor Bauer is an American professional baseball pitcher who is playing for the current team, the Los Angeles Dodgers of Major League Baseball (MLB). Previously, he has played for the teams; Arizona Diamondbacks, Cleveland Indians, and Cincinnati Reds. Initially, the Diamondbacks selected him third overall at the 2011 MLB Draft, and he made his major league debut the following June, the first member of his draft class to reach the majors. He was considered the top pitching prospect before he made his MLB debut in 2012. He struggled during the 2019 season, both with Cleveland and with Cincinnati, but followed this effort with his first Cy Young Award during the 60-game 2020 MLB season. As he became a free agent after the 2020 season, he chose to sign a three-year contract with the Dodgers that February. He led the league in both strikeouts and innings pitched by July 2, when MLB placed Bauer on administrative leave while they investigated assault allegations made against him. Bauer has been accused of sexual assault by a 27-year-old California woman. She obtained a temporary ex parte restraining order in Los Angeles County court against Bauer. 

Baseball Star Trevor Bauer denies assault allegations

Trevor Bauer is denying allegations made against him years ago by an Ohio woman. He is currently on administrative leave imposed by Major League Baseball following allegations of assault against a woman in California. He called the report "a salacious story disseminating defamatory statements, false information, and baseless allegations." The Washington Post report details allegations from an Ohio woman that, on more than one occasion, Bauer assaulted her during sex by choking and punching her. The Post did not identify the woman, citing its policy against naming alleged victims of domestic violence unless they ask to be identified. The allegations are similar to those made against Bauer by a California woman in June. The Ohio woman claimed in 2017 and again in 2018, Bauer assaulted her without her consent during sex, according to the Post, which was provided with photographs of injuries to the woman's face. The Post also viewed messages Bauer allegedly sent to the woman, ranging from threats of revealing private video to physical violence. In a statement shared by Kendra Barkoff Lamy, a spokeswoman for the Ohio woman, Darwal is quoted as saying, "MLB should be applauded for their handling of this. Although they could not have known of our client's story prior to the tragic events in California, their approach is both thorough and respectful. Our client is currently assisting the MLB in this investigation." A hearing is scheduled Monday morning in Los Angeles County Superior Court as Bauer's California accuser seeks a restraining order against him. A temporary ex parte restraining order against Bauer was put in place on July 2. The Pasadena Police Department tells CNN its criminal investigation of Bauer remains active.
