Bauer has not responded publicly as of this time. Criminal charges may be filed against him, according to TMZ.
Moreover, sources told TMZ that the 2020 Cy Young award winner is “adamant the encounter was nothing more than consensual, rough sex with someone he met online. We’re told they hooked up twice.”
