Bauer’s allegations surfaced and a lengthy, descriptive report came about. Bauer and his agent Rachel Luba have repeatedly denied the allegations. As of Thursday, the Dodgers and manager Dave Roberts had planned on Bauer making his scheduled start on Sunday and received much backlash across the sports spectrum.
If Bauer is found guilty of the charges, he could very well be the end of his baseball career, and the Dodgers just signed him to a monster contract in the offseason.
While Bauer and his agent have denied the claims, the lengthy reports that came across are horrific and the MLB is working with authorities to investigate the allegations.
Now the MLB has placed him on leave, and the situation regarding Bauer will be one to monitor going forward. Stay tuned for more details regarding the allegations surrounding Trevor Bauer.
