Trevor Bauer gave up three runs in five innings of work in his start against the Dodgers on Monday.
Bauer gave up seven hits, including solo homers to Chase Utley and Joc Peterson. He also walked a pair, so he pitched around trouble for most of the afternoon. Bauer at least increased his ground ball rate and showed better control last season, but his ERA only modestly improved from 4.55 to 4.26. He hasn’t shown enough to be a consistent option in mixed fantasy leagues. Mar 20 - 7:29 PM

Trevor Bauer served up seven hits and five runs (four earned) over 4 2/3 sluggish innings Wednesday in the Indians' Cactus League loss to the Rangers.

Bauer notched five strikeouts and didn’t allow a walk. The right-hander gave up a hit in each inning he pitched, though only one of them went for extra bases. Bauer also induced just one groundout compared to seven flyouts. Though labeling Bauer as a bust may be a tad harsh, the former third overall pick has never finished with an ERA below 4.18. Outside of AL-only leagues, his fantasy appeal will be limited.

Trevor Bauer allowed one unearned run in his three-inning Cactus League start Sunday versus the Padres.

Padres outfielder Franchy Cordero reached on a fielding error in the top of the third, stole second base, and then scored on a single by Yangervis Solarte. Overall it was another positive outing for Bauer, who has yet to surrender an earned run through six innings this spring. Perhaps most importantly, he hasn't walked anybody.
Mar 5 - 4:55 PM

Trevor Bauer scattered four hits over three shutout innings Wednesday in the Indians' Cactus League loss to the Mariners.

Bauer allowed a pair of hits in the first inning but used a double play to get out of the jam. He struggled against Leonys Martin (2-2 for with a single and a double) but held his own against the rest of Seattle's lineup. Bauer has somewhat underachieved in the big leagues following a dominant college career at UCLA but is still just 26. He’ll open 2017 as Cleveland’s No. 3 starter behind Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco.
Mar 1 - 7:20 PM

Indians and RHP Trevor Bauer avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.55 million contract.

A nice payout for a first-year arbitration player. Bauer, who turns 26 years old next week, registered a 4.26 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and 168/70 K/BB ratio in 190 innings last summer for the American League-champion Indians. He had a 5.27 ERA in 13 2/3 innings during the playoffs. The right-hander is locked into a rotation spot for 2017.
Jan 12 - 3:57 PM

Trevor Bauer failed to make it out of the fifth inning in Sunday's loss to the Cubs in Game 5 of the World Series, allowing three runs on six hits over four innings.

Bauer became the first hurler in history to pitch fewer than five innings in four starts in a single postseason. He looked dominant through the first three innings, racking up five strikeouts and allowing nothing but a single to Addison Russell. The tide turned in the fourth though, when Kris Bryant tied the game with a line-drive homer to left field. Anthony Rizzo followed with a double, Ben Zobrist singled and Addison Russell knocked in another with an infield hit. Bauer battled back to fan Jason Heyward, but then allowed a bunt single to Javier Baez and a sacrifice fly to David Ross to complete the damage against him. He owns a troublesome 5.54 ERA and 1.69 WHIP over his 13 innings in the postseason.

Indians manager Terry Francona announced Friday that Trevor Bauer will start Game 5 of the World Series against the Cubs.

The Tribe had already announced that Corey Kluber would work on short rest in Game 4. Bauer labored in his Game 2 loss, throwing 87 pitches in just 3 2/3 innings. Danny Salazar worked in relief of him in Game 5 and should also be available for Game 5 should Bauer struggle again.

Trevor Bauer failed to provide length in Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Cubs in Game 2 of the World Series, allowing two runs on six hits over 3 2/3 innings.

Bauer surrendered an RBI double to Anthony Rizzo in the first inning and later coughed up an RBI single to Kyle Schwarber in the third, but his issue was less surrendering hits and more simple inefficiency. He had already thrown 51 pitches by the time he finished off the Cubs in the top of the second inning. He would end his 3 2/3 frames having thrown 87 pitches (53 strikes). For the evening as a whole, Bauer struck out two and walked two. On the more positive side of the ledger, Bauer's lacerated right pinkie -- which forced him to exit early in Game 3 of the ALCS -- did not outwardly cause him issue. The 25-year-old right-hander is scheduled to start Game 5 on three days' rest this coming Sunday.

Indians manager Terry Francona said that should the World Series extend to six games, Trevor Bauer and Josh Tomlin will start again on short rest.

The Indians plans on trotting Corey Kluber out in both the fourth and -- if need be -- the seventh game of the series. Neither Bauer nor Tomlin will be used to that herculean extent, but Francona plans on using them on short rest for Game 5 (Sunday) and Game 6 (Tuesday), respectively, should those games be necessary. First up, though, Bauer will start Game 2 on Wednesday night, opposed by the Cubs Jake Arrieta. Tomlin will take the ball for Game 3 when the series shifts to Wrigley Field on Friday. Kyle Hendricks will toe the mound for the Cubs in that one.

Game 2 of the World Series will start at 7:08 p.m. ET instead of 8:08 p.m. ET due to rain in the forecast in Cleveland on Wednesday night.

Major League Baseball made the announcement in the sixth inning of Game 1. The rain could still cause an issue for Game 2, with some projections showing a storm beginning to move through the area around Progressive Field by the early evening. Trevor Bauer is supposed to pitch for the host Indians, with Jake Arrieta on tap for the visiting Cubs. Thursday is scheduled as a travel day before the Fall Classic shifts to Wrigley Field for Game 3 on Friday.

Indians manager Terry Francona said Trevor Bauer (finger) is on schedule to start Game 2 of the World Series against the Cubs on Wednesday night in Cleveland.

Bauer threw to hitters in a 20-pitch side session Monday at Progressive Field without his right pinkie opening up. He was forced from Game 3 of the ALCS last Monday in Toronto after just two-thirds of an inning when a deep laceration on that pinkie began bleeding and wouldn't stop. Bauer suffered the cut around 10 days ago while cleaning his remote control drone. He should be a go for Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday, but it's certainly a lingering concern.

Indians manager Terry Francona said that Trevor Bauer (finger) will face "a couple hitters" during batting practice Monday.

Bauer lasted just two-thirds of an inning during his ALCS Game 3 start before he had to be removed when the stitches in his right pinky busted. He's been given additional suture work and the hope is that he'll be ready to go for Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday. The Indians could push him back to Game 3 on Friday if they decide he needs more time and give Josh Tomlin the ball in Game 2.

Indians manager Terry Francona said Sunday that the team doctor's will continue to monitor Trevor Bauer's finger and could push the right-hander back to Game 3 of the World Series if he isn't ready for Game 2.

In that instance, he would be flipped with Josh Tomlin, who is scheduled to work in Game 3. Bauer has been given additional sutures to secure his lacerated pinky finger in an effort to prevent it from bleeding. He lasted just 2/3 of an inning in his last start due to the ailment.

Trevor Bauer will be given additional suture work on his lacerated right pinky in hopes of preventing it from bleeding.

Bauer lasted just two-thirds of an inning in his NLCS Game 3 start after the cut on his finger opened up. He's confident that he'll be able to make a start during the World Series, but then again he also expressed confidence going into his NLCS start. It remains a cloudy situation for now, but more information on his status should be available over the weekend.
Fri, Oct 21, 2016 03:09:00 PM

Trevor Bauer said he expects his sliced right pinkie to heal in time for the World Series.

Cleveland has a long layoff after beating the Blue Jays in five games in the ALCS, which might mess with some players but should be a great benefit to Bauer. He suffered a deep cut on the pinkie of his throwing hand last week while cleaning a remotely controlled drone and he had to exit Monday's ALCS Game 3 start in Toronto after just two-thirds of an inning because he couldn't stop bleeding. "I'll be ready to pitch in the World Series whenever they need me," Bauer told reporters on Wednesday. "I'm doing everything I can and I'll be back out there for sure."
