Trevor Bauer’s season is over.
The Los Angeles Dodgers‘ star pitcher will miss the rest of the 2021 MLB season – and postseason – amid investigations by the league and Pasadena Police Department into allegations of sexual assault.
Bauer’s co-agents, Jon Fetterolf and Rachel Luba, confirmed the information in a press release on Friday.
“Today Mr. Bauer agreed to extend his administrative leave through the playoffs in a measure of good faith and in an effort to minimize any distraction to the Dodgers organization and his teammates. He continues to cooperate with the MLB investigation and refute the baseless allegations against him,” the assertion learn.
Bauer has been on an prolonged administrative depart from the Dodgers since July 2, after a 27-year-old San Diego girl accused him of choking her into unconsciousness and punching her repeatedly throughout two sexual encounters.
The reigning NL Cy Young winner has denied the allegations, and his legal professional has maintained the 2 sexual encounters between the MLB participant and accuser had been consensual.
The sexual assault allegations had been made public in late June, shortly after Bauer’s accuser requested a restraining order in opposition to the MLB All-Star.
Last month, a Los Angeles County Superior Court choose dominated in favor of Bauer and denied granting a restraining order to the accuser — who beforehand had a short lived one in opposition to Bauer. The verdict got here after a four-day listening to.
Bauer is at present within the first 12 months of a three-year, $102 million contract with the Dodgers.
