There weren’t many questions surrounding Trevor Bauer when the Dodgers went out and signed him. After all, it is difficult to question signing the reigning National League Cy Young award winner.
If anything, the biggest question surrounding his singing is how he would fit in with this team. The Dodgers clubhouse chemistry has been very good over the last couple of years and has only improved with the Mookie Betts and David Price trade.
Every review that we’ve heard from teammates of Trevor Bauer seems to be positive. Most stress that he is a true student of the game and that his work ethic on the field is unmatched. That has certainly been the case with Dodgers players asked about Bauer.
David Price was asked last week about how he is fitting in with the team so far in Spring Training. For Price, he has no complaints about the Dodgers big free-agent splash.
He’s been one of the guys. He’s been fine. Talks to everybody, he has a good personality. I see nothing wrong with Trev as a teammate or anything else. He’s come in, he’s been extremely personable with everybody and he does his little things I guess differently…I don’t see anything wrong with it and I don’t view him any differently than any of my other teammates.
To say that he has his quirks on the field would be an understatement. But for the veteran southpaw, Trevor Bauer has just been another one of the guys. And that’s a good thing to hear from one of the veteran leaders of the Dodgers clubhouse.
Bauer has obviously had his issues off the field in the past with exchanges online. But Dodgers players genuinely seem to agree that he has been a great addition to the team so far.
