Yesterday, Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association agreed to extend Trevor Bauer’s paid administrative leave through the remainder of the 2021 season and the postseason. Bauer made his last start for LA back on July 28th and has been away from the team since MLB opened their investigation into sexual assault allegations made against the reigning Cy Young Award Winner on July 2.
We react to MLB’s decision to extend Bauer’s paid leave for ninth time and what it means for Bauer and the Dodgers moving forward. Plus, how will the Dodgers handle Trevor Bauer’s contract and is there a possibility that he opts out of the final two years of the three-year $102 million deal he signed with LA back in February?
The agents of the embattled pitcher released a statement on the decision yesterday.
