Major League Baseball announced the suspension of Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer for two seasons, equating to 324 games, for what it deemed to be violations of the league's sexual assault and domestic violence policies.
The Southern California native said he strongly denies any such violations and is appealing the suspension that was handed down by Major League Baseball. Could the suspension get reduced? According to insider Jeff Passan he thinks will happen. He spoke about Bauer with Buster Olney on the Baseball Tonight podcast
“It could be reduced, which I think is probably the likeliest scenario because there is precedence. When you look at a suspension as enormous as this one, typically huge suspensions find some kind of reduction. I don’t know if it’s going to be a half-season, I don’t know if it’s going to be a full season."
Trevor Bauer recently opened a grievance hearing against Major League Baseball.
