Trevor Bauer to face Yankees in Mexico exhibition

trevor bauer react

Trevor Bauer said Monday he will pitch for the Mexican League’s Diablos Rojos in Sunday’s exhibition game against the New York Yankees in Mexico City.

The former Cy Young Award winner has been out of the majors since June 2021, when he was pitching for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was placed on administrative leave and ultimately suspended by MLB after a woman accused him of sexual assault. Prosecutors declined to charge him with a crime.

Bauer, who pitched in Japan last season, said he will also pitch in five games for the Diablos from April 11-May 8 in order “to stay ready to pitch” as he seeks a return to the majors.

“This will help me stay in game shape and I’ll be able to join a rotation immediately if or when an MLB offer comes,” Bauer posted Monday on X.

Bauer, 33, was 8-5 with a 2.59 ERA in 17 starts for the Dodgers in 2021. The 2020 National League Cy Young winner is 83-69 with a 3.79 ERA in 222 games (212 starts) with Arizona (2012), Cleveland (2013-19), Cincinnati (2019-20) and Los Angeles.

MLB originally suspended Bauer for a record 324 games in April 2022 for violating the league’s domestic violence policy. A neutral arbitrator reduced his suspension to 194 games in December 2022. The Dodgers then released him in January 2023.
