Trevor Bauer’s administrative leave was extended an additional seven days Thursday as Major League Baseball continues its investigation into sexual assault allegations against the Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher. The extension, which came on the final day of Bauer’s initial leave, was attained with the consent of the MLB Players Association. The MLBPA must grant consent for any extension of administrative leave, which guarantees players full compensation and service time while investigations proceed. MLB and the Pasadena Police Department are conducting separate investigations into Bauer after a woman accused him of choking her until she lost consciousness on multiple occasions, punching her in several areas of her body and leaving her with injuries that required hospitalization over the course of two sexual encounters this year, the last of which occurred on May 16 at Bauer’s Pasadena, California, home. A relatively quick resolution to the investigations is not expected, creating the likely possibility that MLB would look to extend Bauer’s leave again next week. At that point, MLB and the MLBPA would discuss the length of additional leave time. Bauer, the 2020 National League Cy Young Award winner as a member of the Cincinnati Reds, joined the Dodgers with a record-setting three-year, $102 million contract in February. His leave extension guarantees that he will not be around the team through the All-Star break.
