Despite police and MLB investigations into the horrific attack allegations, Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer is yet to start in Sunday’s game against the Nationalists.
Pasadena Police Department Confirmed to Athletic on Tuesday, Bauer is currently under investigation. The incidents reportedly took place in April and May at the 30-year-old Pasadena residence. The alleged victim was ordered to limit domestic violence on 28 June. The 68-page restriction order contained graphic images of the attack.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Bauer traveled to Washington with the team and planned to start a four-game series.
“I follow the leadership of the Major League Baseball,” Roberts said. “Their advice was for us – it was our start on Sunday and we had to move forward and get him to start this game on Sunday.… I just choose to go their way.”
According to the report, Bauer met the woman on Instagram and had sex that started on a contract basis. Asked if the ace had ever strangled him, he said yes, and he “aggressively” stuck his fingers in his throat.
He said he eventually strangled her with his own hair without her consent, which led to her fainting. When he wakes up, Bauer says he allegedly entered her abnormally and that he never agreed with it.
According to the report, he said in Bauer’s house, “In [her] the state at that time, [she] He didn’t think it was a threat to do anything against Trevor [her] will for the rest of the night. “
A month later, the report said he returned to Bauer’s residence and the two agreed to use the safe word. However, he said, five minutes later, he suffocated her until she fainted again, and when she woke up, Bauer punched her in the head.
In the photos included in the report, his face was “visibly bruised and swollen, including under both eyes. His jaw was swollen, his lips were bloodshot and his face was scratched.
