It doesn't look like Dave Roberts is anticipating seeing Trevor Bauer any time soon.

Bauer was placed on administrative leave by Major League Baseball on Friday.The Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher can be kept on leave for up to seven days, but any more time away from the team would require the approval of the MLB Players Association.

When asked if Bauer could make a return on Friday, two days before the Dodgers' final game of the first half of the season before going in the All-Star break, manager Dave Roberts' reaction was blunt and firm:

I don't see that happening.

Dave Roberts was planning on starting Trevor Bauer after the allegations emerged, but said they were doing so at the recommendation of MLB, who placed Bauer on leave a day later.
