The Dodgers have yet to say something publicly about Trevor Bauer’s assault allegations. While the team and local authorities continue their investigation into the pitcher and his physical encounter with a woman, it seems like they have chosen to wait.
That was sort of confirmed this week by ESPN. In an article released on Monday, Alden Gonzalez and Tisha Thompson confirmed with Dodgers President and CEO Stan Kasten that they were indeed waiting to comment until the legal process and MLB investigation has concluded.
Kasten also told ESPN that the Dodgers have sent an email to members of their organization in regards to Bauer. The team tells the employees that they had no knowledge of the restraining order against him in Ohio. They added that the team “takes all allegations of this nature very seriously and does not condone or excuse any acts of domestic violence or sexual assault.”
Bauer is currently in the middle of a potential 3-day hearing that should decide the fate of his current restraining order stemming from the incident in Pasadena. Other than those few details, the Dodgers don’t sound like they addressed the matter much beyond that.
Major League Baseball once again extended Bauer’s administrative leave through this Friday. For the moment, it’s unclear if they are waiting for the hearing to wrap up to make a decision.
