Trevor Bauer was hit hard in Friday's loss to the Tigers, giving up six runs on eight hits over five-plus innings.

The right-hander did manage to strike out six on the evening while issuing two walks. He cruised through the first four innings allowing only one run until Miguel Cabrera blasted a three-run homer in the fifth. Bauer came back out for the sixth inning and gave up a single to Tyler Collins and a two-run bomb to Alex Avila before getting the hook. He'll bring his troublesome 8.44 ERA and 1.59 WHIP into Wednesday's matchup against the Twins in Minnesota.
Apr 14 - 11:13 PM

Trevor Bauer gave up a run in the fifth and three more in the sixth before being removed, allowing four runs in 5 2/3 innings overall in Saturday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Bauer held the D'backs scoreless through his first four innings of 2017, but the late struggles cost him. He did, however, strike out seven without walking a batter in the game. Bauer will never be the picture of efficiency and thus is tough to trust with a spot on your fantasy team. Another interleague date, this one with the Tigers, is up next for Bauer on Friday.
Apr 9 - 12:29 AM

Trevor Bauer yielded three earned runs over five innings Sunday in his Cactus League start versus the Diamondbacks.

Bauer struck out eight, but he walked three and gave up seven hits, including a David Peralta home run in the bottom of the third. The right-hander holds a 4.74 ERA in 24 2/3 innings (six starts) this spring, after finishing with a 4.26 ERA in 2016 and a 4.55 ERA in 2015. There are better fantasy options out there.
Mar 26 - 6:18 PM

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.
Mar 15 - 8:28 PM

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.
