Trevor Bauer was scratched from his scheduled start on Saturday due to illness.

T.J. House, who had been scheduled to go Sunday, will start in his place against the Tigers. Bauer could work on Sunday if he's feeling better.
Apr 25 - 1:12 PM

Trevor Bauer continued to impress, hurling seven scoreless frames, but took a no-decision as the Indians lost 4-3 on Monday.

Bauer allowed just four hits and a pair of walks while striking out seven. Considered by many to be a breakout candidate for the 2015 season, Bauer has bolted out to a 2-0 record with a 0.95 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP, and a 26/11 K/BB ratio in 19 innings. He'll need to have the command he showed on Monday if his success is going to last over a full season. Bauer matches up against the Tigers in Detroit next.
Apr 20 - 11:35 PM

Trevor Bauer was strong again Wednesday, striking out eight batters while holding the White Sox to two runs over six frames in a 4-2 win.

Bauer didn't allow a hit for the first three innings, extending his season hitless streak to nine frames. He walked four and began to fade late, yielding two hits and a free pass that led to two runs in the sixth, but it was another nice outing for the righty. Bauer has issued nine walks but has also struck out 19 over his first 12 innings this season. There's still risk here, but we've seen more good than bad and are encouraged. He'll get the White Sox again next week.
Apr 15 - 3:48 PM

Trevor Bauer struck out a career-high 11 batters over six hitless innings Thursday in a 5-1 win over the Astros.

Bauer also walked five batters, so he was pulled after 111 pitches despite the no-hitter still being intact. Kyle Crockett and Scott Atchison made it through the seventh and eighth unscathed, but Jed Lowrie hit a solo homer off Nick Hagadone with one out in the ninth to break it up. The Indians remain without a no-hitter since Len Barker threw a perfect game on May 15, 1981. This outing showed both the positives and negatives with Bauer, but his upside makes him worth owning in most fantasy formats.
Apr 9 - 6:09 PM

Trevor Bauer punched out eight batters while allowing three runs over six innings of work in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Brewers.

Bauer allowed eight hits in total while walking none. The Brewers jumped on him early with two first-inning runs, then he served up a third-inning home run to Jonathan Lucroy, who has been seeing beach balls all spring, so Bauer's outing was more quality than not. He finishes Cactus League play with a 4.55 ERA and a 26/1 K/BB ratio in 27 2/3 innings.
Apr 4 - 6:18 PM

Trevor Bauer had his good stuff Monday, whiffing seven batters while tossing 6 1/3 frames of one-run ball in a Cactus League win over the White Sox.

Bauer walked just one and was unscathed other than the solo shot he served up to Tyler Flowers. Shockingly, it was the first walk Bauer has issued all spring, as he's often had trouble with his control. He could really take a step forward in 2015 if he can improve his control.
Mar 30 - 8:16 PM

Trevor Bauer was hit hard in Friday's Cactus League loss to the Angels, surrendering eight runs (six earned) on nine hits over his 3 1/3 innings of work.

Bauer did manage to record four strikeouts on the day without issuing a walk. Chris Iannetta's two-run homer in the second got the scoring started and it was all downhill from there. Prior to this start, Bauer had been terrific in spring action and still owns an 11/0 K/BB ratio over 15 1/3 innings in Cactus League play.
Mar 21 - 2:58 PM

Trevor Bauer allowed two runs (one earned) over five innings Sunday versus the Padres.

Bauer has been performing well despite a specific focus on throwing strikes early in the spring. Bauer said he is playing a game with himself to see how fast he can get to two strikes on each batter. Through 12 spring innings, the right-hander has a 3.00 ERA and a 7/0 K/BB ratio. Entering his second full season, Bauer is a potential breakout candidate.
Mar 15 - 6:51 PM

Trevor Bauer served up three homers among his seven hits over four innings versus the Cubs Tuesday.

Bauer was doing fine through three frames, but then Jorge Soler, Javier Baez and Kris Bryant went back-to-back-to-back in the fourth inning before he could record an out. The young right-hander has breakout potential if he can ever put it all together, but his performance in the majors to this point has been erratic.
Mar 10 - 7:53 PM

Travis Bauer surrendered four runs in 4 1/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Royals.

Bauer was spotted a three-run lead in the first, but he couldn't make it stand up. After three strong frames, he allowed three singles and a walk in the fourth and then four more hits before being pulled in the fifth. Bauer ends his first mostly full season 5-8 with a 4.18 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP in 153 innings (26 starts). That's not great, but the 143 strikeouts were encouraging, as was the fact that Bauer avoided any real meltdowns like those he experienced in his few opportunities in 2012 and '13. He should be a lock for a spot in next year's rotation, and he'll be a breakthrough candidate.

Trevor Bauer was handed a no-decision after giving up three runs in six-plus innings against the Twins on Friday.

Bauer allowed four hits (including two home runs) while striking out six and walking none. He was in line for the victory before Cody Allen blew a save in the bottom of the ninth inning. Bauer has struggled with consistency this season, posting a 4.06 ERA and 141/57 K/BB ratio in 148 2/3 innings over 25 starts. He'll hope to finish the year strong next week against the Royals.

Trevor Bauer pitched into the eighth inning, but was handed a loss as the Indians fell 4-3 to the Twins on Tuesday.

It had been a month since Bauer even recorded one out in the seventh inning, so it was a good sight for the Indians. All of the damage occurred in the fourth inning as the Twins pushed across four runs, including the final two on an Oswaldo Arcia two-run home run. Overall, Bauer yielded only four hits and walked one while striking out eight. The right-hander has pitched better as of late, and now has a 4.12 ERA with a 1.42 WHIP and 132/56 K/BB ratio. Bauer will match up against the Tigers in Detroit on Sunday in his next start.

Trevor Bauer got a no-decision after allowing four runs in 5 2/3 innings in Thursday's 11-inning loss to the Tigers.

Bauer entered the evening having allowed exactly zero runs in 11 2/3 innings over his previous two starts, but the Tigers jumped all over him with a four-run first inning. Bauer settled down from there, giving up six hits and four walks with four strikeouts overall. He has a 4.10 ERA, a 1.42 WHIP, and a 124/55 K/BB ratio. Bauer will take on the Twins at home in his next start on Tuesday.
Thu, Sep 4, 2014 11:52:00 PM

Trevor Bauer fired six shutout innings Sunday as the Indians beat the Astros 3-1.

Bauer walked three but let up only four hits and struck out nine Houston hitters in the mostly-dominant outing. The 23-year-old has been inconsistent all season -- showing flashes of front-line stuff at times and getting shelled at others. He'll carry a 5-7 record, 4.18 ERA, and 1.39 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Royals.
