Trevor Bauer suffers pair of legal setbacks

Suspended Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer is currently in the process of awaiting an appeal decision. Bauer has done everything in his power to clear his name amid a sexual assault accusation. But according to Brent Schrotenboer of USA Today, Bauer has suffered some right-wing setbacks recently.

“(Trevor Bauer) suffered some setbacks in court Wednesday when a federal judge ruled in favor of two people suing Bauer and accusing them of damaging him financially,” Schrotenboer wrote.

The people the federal judge ruled in favor of include Trevor Bauer’s accuser as well as her former attorney. The judge also ruled in favor of the woman in another decision, also according to Schrotenboer.

“In another ruling, the same judge also denied Bauer’s attempt to dismiss the San Diego woman’s countersuit against him,” Schrotenboer wrote.

Trevor Bauer is currently serving a 324-game suspension. However, he previously appealed the suspension and is awaiting a final decision. A Los Angeles Times article earlier said that “the arbitrator’s decision is not expected until next month.”

The Dodgers are not expected to keep Trevor Bauer on the roster even if he were to win his appeal. Whether he returns to the MLB world this season, or is forced to sit out the entirety of his current suspension, teams will have a tough choice to make on the former Cy Young winner.

We will continue to monitor Trevor Bauer’s situation and provide updates as they become available.
