MLB Star Will Miss Rest of Season Amid Probe into Sexual Assault Claims

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer will not pitch again this season, as Major League Baseball continues to investigate sexual assault allegations against him.

MLB launched the investigation on July 2 after a San Diego woman accused him of choking her unconscious and punching her repeatedly during multiple consensual sexual encounters.

Last month, the Pasadena Police Department wrapped up a three-month investigation into the woman's claims and turned the evidence over to the L.A. County District Attorney's Office, which will decide if Bauer will face charges. 

"Today, Mr. Bauer agreed to extend his administrative leave through the playoffs in a measure of good faith and in an effort to minimize any distraction to the Dodgers organization and his teammates. He continues to cooperate with the MLB investigation and refute the baseless allegations against him," Bauer's co-agents, Jon Fetterolf and Rachel Luba, said.

The reigning Cy Young Award winner was having another stellar season, pitching to a 2.59 ERA, with 137 strikeouts in 17 starts. He last pitched on June 28.

Bauer is in the first season of a massive three-year $102 million contract. He will continue to get paid while he is on administrative leave. If he is ultimately suspended by the league, the Dodgers would not have to pay him.
