On Tuesday, TMZ Sports reported that Dodger pitcher Trevor Bauer will not be criminally charged for sexual assault. Bauer was been embroiled in the legal battle over sexual assault allegations since last summer.
Bauer was placed on MLB administrative leave on July 1st, 2021. Bauer has not pitched for the Dodgers since June 28th.
En lieu of the news on Tuesday, MLB released an official statement per Bill Shakin.

Now that the LA County district attorney has decided not to file criminal charges, MLB must decide whether or not to suspend Bauer. The speculation is Bauer is highly, highly likely to appeal the suspension.
