Trevor Bauer (32), who was suspended from the Los Angeles Dodgers for sexual assault, expressed his disappointment to the club.
On the 7th (hereinafter referred to as Korean time), the Los Angeles Dodgers team of Major League Baseball put right-handed pitcher Trevor Bauer on standby (DFA, designated for assignment).
Ahead of the 2021 season, Bauer, who wore a Dodgers uniform for three years and $120 million, was charged with assaulting a woman he had sex with in late June 2021. As a result, the Major League Secretariat issued an administrative leave of absence and was summoned to the police, but the Los Angeles County Prosecutor’s Office dismissed all charges due to insufficient evidence.
However, in addition to the first woman, two more people who claimed to have suffered damage came out, and the incident escalated. In response, the Major League Secretariat issued a 324-game suspension to Bauer in April of last year. He immediately appealed, and through legal arbitration, on the 23rd of last month, his suspension was eased to 194 games, opening the way to return to the 2023 season.
The Dodgers had to decide whether to remove 토토사이트 Bauer from the 40-man roster within two weeks of the easing of the suspension. And after a lot of hard work, he took measures to wait for release and put an end to his accompaniment with Bauer.
The Dodgers club said, “It is the position that a thorough investigation should be conducted in accordance with the due process for allegations of sexual assault and domestic violence. We have come to the conclusion that the violation justifies the longest suspension ever imposed on Bauer. After careful consideration, we have decided to remove Bauer from the membership of our club.”
Bauer also issued an official statement and expressed regret over the Dodgers’ decision. He said, “I was unable to communicate with the club due to the administrative leave, but immediately after the recent arbitration decision, the agent contacted the Dodgers front desk.” , but at that time I said that I wanted to come back this year and throw the ball for the team.”
Bauer said, “I am disappointed with the Dodgers’ decision today, but I am grateful for the Dodgers’ generous support in the meantime. We wish the players good luck and look forward to competing together elsewhere in the future.”
According to Jeff Passan, Bauer can sign with any club for $720,000, the lowest annual salary in the major leagues. If he does not find another team within a week, he will be transferred to the minor league or become a free agent, but it is unclear whether the Dodgers will accept his move to the minor league. However, the Dodgers still have to pay Bauer the remaining $22.5 million in salary.
