Another day, another deadline push for Major League Baseball on the Trevor Bauer issue. The Dodgers pitcher has been on administrative leave since last Summer after a report came out about his encounter with a woman in Pasadena. The fanbase has been completely left in the dark about the next steps ever since then.
Bauer’s administrative leave had already been extended again last week. But there were some rumors that he might consider exploring a loophole and showing up to the Dodgers game on Sunday afternoon. That never happened though.
Now, reports are coming out that Bauer’s leave has once again been extended. That leave for him runs through April 29th, so another week for the Dodgers hurler. And at this point, there is no telling how long this could go on. We’re approaching one year since he was initially placed on leave, and the league is showing no signs of coming to a decision.
That does leave the Dodgers in a very tough spot. While he continues to be paid, the team has no idea where his future lies. If he were to be suspended, that would free them up to make decisions, possibly on the trade market. If he were to be able to play, then that’s another conversation they would have to explore.
So overall, it’s a very complicated situation that has left everyone involved in a tough spot. The Dodgers will continue to play with him while the league drags its feet on a decision.
