Last week, Trevor Bauer was reinstated Thursday by Major League Baseball's independent arbitrator, allowing him to resume his Major League Baseball career at the start of the 2023 season.
The Dodgers have 14 days to decide if they they want to cut the pitcher, or whether they will continue to roster him and play out the 2023 season. According to Jack Harris of the L.A. Times, the Dodgers front office is currently undecided on what to do with the right-hander:
As of Thursday night, club executives were still discussing how they would proceed, according to people with knowledge of the situation, and could wait to make a final decision until closer to the Jan. 6 deadline to either release Bauer or activate him.
Bauer will lose more than $37 million in salary for the final 144 games of last season and for the first 50 games of next season, through May 23. The suspension will cost Bauer $37,594,233 from his $102 million, three-year contract: $28,131,868 of his $32 million salary in 2022 and $9,462,365 of his $32 million salary in 2023.
