“I was told to return… disappointed in the Dodgers” Trevor Bauer made a statement

Trevor Bauer, who received a notice of release from the Los Angeles Dodgers, made a statement.

The Dodgers team issued an official statement on the 7th (hereinafter Korean time) and said, “Our club has faithfully followed the league rules prohibiting domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse. Bauer has received the longest suspension in history, and we are now We confirm that he is no longer part of our organization.”

Bauer was accused of sexual assault by a woman in June 2021. The prosecution did not prosecute due to insufficient evidence, but the 안전놀이터 Major League Secretariat issued a disciplinary action through its own investigation. Even after the non-prosecution, two additional women who had been subjected to similar violence by Bauer continued to disclose.

The MLB Secretariat issued a suspension of 324 games, and after that, Bauer appealed and the discipline was reduced to 194 games at the end of December. He could return during the 2023 season. However, the Dodgers decided to let Bauer go after thinking about it within the given time for about two weeks after the appeal. Because of the release waiting measure, if there are no clubs that want Bauer for the next week, he will be eligible for free agency.

The Dodgers must pay Bauer $22.5 million in salary for the 2023 season under any circumstances. There was also some hesitation because of that. However, it seems that the decision was made considering Bauer’s complete lack of remorse and the impact his actions had on the team. If another team wants to sign Bauer, he only needs to pay $720,000, the lowest salary in the league.

Bauer also revealed his position through his personal SNS account. Bauer said, “Immediately after the mediation decision, our representatives communicated with the Dodgers club leadership. And after about two weeks of conversation, yesterday (6th), a senior Dodgers official and I met in person in Arizona. I said, ‘Please throw it.’ However, I was disappointed with the decision the club made today.”

But it’s already spilled water. Bauer added, “I am grateful for the generous support I have received from the Dodgers team. I wish the players good luck and look forward to competing elsewhere.”
