Trevor Bauer pitched well in earning a no-decision during Sunday's contest with the Athletics, allowing one run on four hits over 6 2/3 innings.
Bauer struck out six and walked four, with the lone run scoring in the fifth inning on a Billy Burns RBI single. He's had his hiccups this season, but still holds a 3.98 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 127/52 K/BB ratio in 131 innings. The 24-year-old right-hander is slowly rounding into form as a respectable major league starter. He'll take on the Twins in his next start. Aug 2 - 7:55 PM

Trevor Bauer pitched a nine-inning complete game, allowing two runs, but took a tough-luck loss against the Royals on Tuesday.

The struggling Indians provided Bauer only one run of support. He then went in position for the loss after allowing a solo home run to Eric Hosmer with two outs in the top of the ninth inning. Overall, the right-hander gave up five hits and a walk while striking out six. Bauer has a 4.13 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and a 121/48 K/BB ratio in 124 1/3 innings this season. He will look to avoid a fourth consecutive loss when he takes on the Athletics in Oakland in his next start.

Trevor Bauer was lit up for six runs and three homers in six innings by the White Sox on Thursday.

Bauer gave up his homers to three players (Melky Cabrera, Alexei Ramirez and Adam Eaton) who had combined to hit 14 in 1,034 at-bats this season. Why is Bauer not a better pitcher remains a very valid question. Oddly enough, his ERA has skyrocketed since the Indians improved their defense by adding Francisco Lindor and Giovanny Urshela. Of course, those two can't do anything about the 10 homers he's allowed in his last six starts. He should be better than this.
Jul 23 - 10:09 PM

Trevor Bauer was knocked around for five runs over four innings in a loss to the Reds on Friday.

Bauer gave up seven hits, including a pair of home runs. It was the third time in his last seven starts that he pitched four innings or less in a start. His ERA now sits at 4.03, which is the highest it's been since early May. He'll attempt to bounce back next week against the White Sox at home.
Jul 17 - 11:36 PM

Trevor Bauer pitched eight innings of two-run ball, leading the Indians past the Astros by a 4-2 margin on Wednesday.

Wednesday's outing was arguably Bauer's best since the end of May. He limited the Astros to six hits while walking none and striking out nine. The lone blemish was a first-inning, two-run home run to Evan Gattis. The talented 24-year-old heads into the All-Star break with a 3.76 ERA, a 1.22 WHIP, and a 102/43 K/BB ratio in 105 1/3 innings. Bauer opposes the Reds in a road start next.
Jul 8 - 10:19 PM

Trevor Bauer locked down the Pirates on Friday, hurling 6 1/3 innings of two-run ball to earn his seventh win of the season.

Bauer could have conceivably pitched deeper into the game were it not for a rain delay, which came in the seventh inning. At that point, the right-hander had only thrown 74 pitches. He would not return to the contest when festivities resumed. Bauer struck out three and walked one, with both runs against him coming home via a homer by Andrew McCutchen. Bauer now holds a 3.88 ERA and 1.25 WHIP and will look to improve to 8-5 in a home showdown with the Astros next time he takes the ball.
Jul 4 - 1:29 AM

Trevor Bauer gave up four runs over seven innings in a loss to the Orioles on Sunday.

Bauer gave up just five hits, but four were of the extra-base variety -- Jimmy Paredes hit a two-run homer in the third, Manny Machado homered to lead off the sixth and Paredes and Chris Davis hit back-to-back doubles later in the sixth. He walked just one, though, his lowest walk total in a start since May 24. The loss dropped Bauer to 6-5 with a 3.96 ERA and 1.30 WHIP. Bauer will try to get back in the win column Friday at the Pirates.
Jun 28 - 4:02 PM

Trevor Bauer gave up seven runs in three innings, taking the loss as the Indians dropped Monday's contest 8-5 to the Tigers.

The Tigers scored once in each of the first three innings and four times in the fourth. Bauer allowed the first five batters he faced in the fourth to reach base before giving way to Jeff Manship, who was able to reasonably see his way out of danger on Bauer's behalf. Bauer, overall, allowed nine hits and walked four while striking out three. He now has a 3.86 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP, and an 85/41 K/BB ratio over 84 innings. He'll look for better results when he faces the Orioles in Baltimore in his next start.
Jun 22 - 11:14 PM

Trevor Bauer pitched seven scoreless innings as the Indians shut out the Cubs 6-0 on Tuesday.

Bauer scattered four singles and walked three in the strong outing. The right-hander struck out seven to boot. It was a nice rebound for Bauer after he allowed six runs over 3 2/3 innings of work his last time out. The 24-year-old moved to 6-3 with a 3.22 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with the victory, and he'll try to improve on those numbers Sunday against the Rays.
Jun 16 - 11:56 PM

Trevor Bauer lost Wednesday after surrendering six runs in 3 2/3 innings against the Mariners.

Bauer walked 25 batters in his first 10 starts, but he issued four free passes last time out and five tonight against a lineup that isn't known for its patience. It's a trend that needs to be reversed quickly.
Jun 10 - 11:03 PM

Trevor Bauer pitched 6 2/3 innings of two-run ball to defeat the Royals in a rain-shortened game Thursday.

The game was called with the Indians up 6-2 in the eighth. Bauer has turned in five straight quality starts, even though he's still walking more batters than the Indians would prefer (including four more tonight). He's 5-2 with a 2.94 ERA overall.
Jun 4 - 11:42 PM

Trevor Bauer allowed two runs over seven innings and struck out 10 against the Mariners on Friday.

Bauer has pitched at least seven innings in four starts, giving up five runs over 29 1/3 innings during that span. He did take the loss tonight, but his ERA is down to 2.97.
May 30 - 1:48 AM

Trevor Bauer limited the Reds to one run over 7 2/3 innings in a sterling performance en route to a win on Sunday.

Bauer allowed only five hits with no walks and four strikeouts. His only mistake came in the seventh inning, resulting in a solo home run to Marlon Byrd. It's his third start in a row he's pitched into the eighth inning while allowing exactly one run. Bauer has certainly lived up to his prospect hype through nine starts this season, owning a 3.02 ERA with a 1.16 WHIP and a 55/22 K/BB ratio in 56 2/3 innings. He'll take on the Mariners at Safeco Field next.
May 24 - 4:23 PM

Trevor Bauer struck out seven over 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball Tuesday, leading the Indians to a 3-1 win over the White Sox.

Bauer scattered four hits and three walks in the outing, his second straight allowing just one run in 7 1/3 innings. This time, though, he earned the win. It was his first since April 15, moving him to 3-1 with a 3.31 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. An interleague matchup with the Reds looms on Sunday.
May 20 - 12:01 AM

Trevor Bauer was left with a no-decision despite firing 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball Thursday versus the Cardinals.

Bauer was pulled from the game after issuing a one-out walk to Peter Bourjos in the top of the eighth inning and Indians left-hander Marc Rzepczynski promptly gave up a go-ahead two-run homer to Matt Carpenter. Bauer yielded only four hits over his 7 1/3 frames and struck out 11. The 24-year-old right-hander has a 3.67 ERA and 44 strikeouts in 41 2/3 total innings this season. A road date with the White Sox is next.
