LOS ANGELES (WJW)– Former Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer is accused of assaulting a woman earlier this year.
TMZ reported the woman was granted a temporary domestic violence restraining order on Tuesday against the 30-year-old, who now plays for the Dodgers.
“The order is a result of a recent assault that took place at the hands of Mr. Bauer where (the alleged victim) suffered severe physical and emotional pain,” the woman’s attorney told TMZ.
The Pasadena Police Department said it was investigating the allegations, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Bauer’s agent released a statement denying any wrongdoing and claiming it was a consensual relationship.
Bauer played with the Indians from 2013 to 2019. He was traded to the Reds in 2019 in a three-team deal that landed Franmil Reyes in Cleveland. He won the 2020 NL Cy Young then signed a three-year deal with Los Angeles.
