The much-anticipated combination of the LA Dodgers and Trevor Bauer (32) eventually ended in just 17 games.
The Los Angeles Times reported on the 7th (Korean time), “The Dodgers released Bauer through a statement saying that he is no longer a member of the Dodgers.”
In late June 2021, Bauer was accused of assaulting a woman he had a relationship with. He himself denied it, but the MLB secretariat immediately gave Bauer an administrative leave and started an investigation.
I have consistently insisted on my innocence from the time of the incident, and in the end, in February of last year, the Los Angeles County Prosecutor’s Office dismissed both charges of violence, saying, “There is not enough evidence to convince me that he committed a crime.”안전놀이터
However, in addition to the first woman, he came out with two more who claimed to have been harmed, and in response, the secretariat issued a 324 game suspension to Bauer in April of last year. Afterwards, he complained of injustice, and after an appeal, it was alleviated with a suspension of 194 games on the 23rd of last month.
The Dodgers had to decide whether to remove Bauer from the 40-man roster within two weeks of the relief. After much deliberation, the Dodgers eventually decided to let Bauer off the team.
Bauer, the 2020 National League Cy Young Award winner, signed a three-year, $120 million contract with the Dodgers ahead of the 2021 season. At the time, he was expected to build the strongest starting lineup with Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler, and Julio Urias. He went 8-5 with a 2.59 ERA in 17 games his first season.
However, as he was involved in an accident, Bauer could not be seen on the mound until last year. And in the end, they let Bauer go, even giving up the remaining $22.5 million of his contract. Any team that recruits Bauer can use him for only the minimum salary ($720,000).
