Trevor Bauer held the Braves to two runs over six innings in Monday's 8-3 victory.
He gave up five hits, walked three and struck out five. It wasn't as electric as Bauer's other recent outings have been, especially given the weak opponent, but the righty will take it. Bauer will carry a 3.19 ERA into Toronto over the weekend. Jun 27 - 11:05 PM

Trevor Bauer manhandled the Rays on Wednesday night, giving them only one run while striking out 10 in a 6-1 complete game victory.

Bauer is having a breakout season and has been especially good of late. His 3.20 ERA is by far the best of his career. He has done it by finally getting his walk rate under control. Bauer started the season in the bullpen but has now made 11 starts and is locked into the Indians' rotation moving forward. Bauer lines up for two starts next week versus the Braves and Blue Jays.

Trevor Bauer settled for a no-decision after tossing seven innings of one-run ball Friday against the White Sox.

Another strong start for Bauer. He held the White Sox to just four hits while walking nine and striking out nine. He now owns a 2.12 ERA and 28/8 K/BB ratio in 29 2/3 innings over his last four starts. With upcoming starts against the Rays and Braves, Bauer is worth owning in mixed fantasy leagues.
Jun 17 - 10:43 PM

Trevor Bauer allowed three runs (two earned) on nine hits and a walk while striking out three in eight quality innings against the Angels on Saturday.

Bauer has boosted his ground ball rate this year and that has helped him keep the ball in the yard. He has also been able to reduce his walk rate without harming his strikeout rate. These factors have combined to produce a 3.88 ERA, which is the best of Bauer's four year career so far. Still only 25 years old, the much-maligned Bauer may finally become worthy of being used in standard mixed leagues. He started the year in the bullpen and was moved to the rotation when Carlos Carrasco got hurt. Right now it looks like Bauer has pitched well enough to earn a permanent slot in the Indians' rotation
Jun 12 - 3:06 AM

Trevor Bauer lasted 7 2/3 innings, allowing just one run and striking out 10, in defeating the Mariners on Monday.

It's his long outing and his high strikeout game of the season. It's just the second time in eight starts that he's allowed fewer than three runs. Bauer had been adequate since joining Cleveland's rotation, but not in a way that left a lot of hope that he'd take a step forward. This is more encouraging, though we wouldn't rush to pick him up in mixed leagues.
Jun 7 - 1:39 AM

Trevor Bauer surrendered three runs in seven innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Rangers.

It's the fifth time in seven starts this year that Bauer has allowed exactly three runs (he allowed no runs once and four runs once). The resulting 4.14 ERA isn't brilliant, but the Indians should be content with him giving them a chance to win each time out.
Jun 1 - 9:58 PM

Trevor Bauer wasn't at his best in Friday's no-decision against the Orioles, surrendering three runs on nine hits across six frames.

Bauer walked a pair and struck out four in the ballgame. All three runs that he allowed came in the first inning, then Bauer was able to settle in nicely and blank the O's the next five innings. He'll carry a 4.34 ERA and 1.40 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Rangers.
May 27 - 11:10 PM

Trevor Bauer scattered eight hits and four runs over five unimpressive innings Saturday in a loss to the Red Sox.

He walked two batters and didn't record a strikeout. While most of Boston's damage came after he left the game, Bauer still wasn't sharp. The Red Sox touched him up for five straight hits in the third inning while Mookie Betts took him deep for a solo home run in the fourth. Bauer will hope for better luck in his next outing Friday against Baltimore.
May 21 - 8:10 PM

Trevor Bauer pitched well in Sunday's loss to the Twins, yielding three runs on five hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Bauer struck out eight and walked two on the afternoon. The Twins scored a pair of runs in the first inning courtesy of RBI hits by Eddie Rosario and Juan Centeno. A solo homer by Jorge Polanco in the seventh inning polished off the scoring on the right-hander's line. In four starts since taking over for the injured Carlos Carrasco (hamstring), Bauer has allowed nine runs across 23 1/3 innings. He holds a 23/9 K/BB ratio in that space. With just three runs allowed in his last 14 innings, he is worth a speculative flier in AL-only and deeper mixed-league formats. A road start against the Red Sox shows next on his schedule and should serve as a nice (if difficult) measuring stick for how Bauer is progressing as a starter.
May 15 - 3:54 PM

Trevor Bauer threw seven scoreless innings, striking out seven, as the Indians shut out the Astros 4-0 on Tuesday.

Bauer has gotten progressively better in each of his three starts, with Tuesday's outing obviously being the best to date. He scattered three hits and walked three through his seven innings of work. He's talented enough for starts like Tuesday's to be frequent, but his maddening inconsistency has always been his calling card, as evidenced by his 3.86 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 29/12 K/BB ratio over 28 innings this year. He'll try to build on the good start Monday against the Reds.
May 10 - 11:04 PM

Trevor Bauer allowed three runs over four innings in Saturday's start against the Phillies.

Making his first start of the season after spending the first few weeks in the bullpen, Bauer was pedestrian against an even more pedestrian Phillies lineup. He allowed five hits, including a Freddy Galvis two-run homer, and walked two while striking out four. Bauer has an unsightly 5.28 ERA and 1.63 WHIP this season with 18 strikeouts in 15 1/3 innings, but with Carlos Carrasco sidelined for at least the next month Bauer will likely remain in the Indians' rotation. He'll look for a better showing Friday against the Royals.
Apr 30 - 10:20 PM

Trevor Bauer will replace the injured Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) in the Indians' rotation.

It was the logical move after Bauer allowed two runs on four hits and one walk in 3 1/3 innings in relief of Carrasco on Sunday against the Tigers. However, it's unclear when Bauer will make his first start. The 25-year-old has yet to live up to his potential in the majors, but his strikeout upside should have him on the radar in deeper fantasy formats.
Apr 25 - 6:48 PM

Replacing the injured Carlos Carrasco in Sunday's win over the Tigers, Trevor Bauer yielded two runs on four hits over 3 1/3 innings.

Carrasco was forced to exit stage left with a left hamstring strain after just 2 2/3 innings of work. He would give way to Bauer, who went on to strike out four and walk one. The 25-year-old right-hander posted a strong spring, but the Indians pushed him to the bullpen to start the regular season. In 11 1/3 innings (six appearances) he holds a 4.76 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 14/5 K/BB ratio. Depending on how long Carrasco's hamstring injury keeps him from pitching, Bauer could be in play for a few starts.
Apr 24 - 4:39 PM

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers "have engaged in talks recently" with the Indians about a deal for starting pitching.

Grant says that the discussions have revolved around the Rangers sending a reliever to the Indians. It's unclear which names are involved at this point, although the Tribe just sent Trevor Bauer to the bullpen so he could make some sense. Josh Tomlin might also be a possibility. Grant notes that the Rangers discussed Shawn Tolleson and Keone Kela with the Diamondbacks earlier this offseason, so perhaps they would be possibilities to move to Cleveland.
Mar 31 - 5:35 PM

Trevor Bauer will begin the season in the bullpen.

In turn, Cody Anderson and Josh Tomlin have officially nabbed the final two spots in the Indians' rotation. There's been some speculation about a potential move to the bullpen for Bauer, but it still comes as a surprise after he posted a 2.25 ERA and 19/4 K/BB ratio over 20 innings this spring. Of course, Bauer will likely be the first to benefit if Anderson or Tomlin falter, but for now he'll have to get accustomed to a new role.
