LOS ANGELES (WJW/AP) — Former Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer was placed on administrative leave following accusations of assaulting a woman earlier this year.

The Associated Press reported the woman was granted a temporary domestic violence restraining order on Tuesday against 30-year-old Bauer, who is now a pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Major League Baseball issued the following statement today regarding Bauer:

“MLB’s investigation into the allegations made against Trevor Bauer is ongoing. While no
determination in the case has been made, we have made the decision to place Mr. Bauer on seven-day
administrative leave effective immediately. MLB continues to collect information in our ongoing investigation concurrent with the Pasadena Police Department’s active criminal investigation. We will comment further at the appropriate time.”
