Trevor Bauer allowed two runs over seven innings, striking out seven, in a win over the Tigers on Thursday.

Bauer gave up seven hits and walked two but did well to limit the damage, allowing only a pair of Nick Castellanos RBI singles during his outing. The win was his first of the year but he's deserved a better fate, posting a 2.25 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 21/7 K/BB ratio over 20 innings of work thus far. He'll try to make it a winning streak against the Twins on Wednesday.
Apr 12 - 9:14 PM

Trevor Bauer allowed just one run on three hits over eight innings in Saturday's 1-0 loss to the Royals.

In a beautifully-pitched contest by Bauer and opposing starter Ian Kennedy, it would be Bauer who came up just short. His moment of undoing came in the form of Lucas Duda, who provided the only run of the game with a solo home run leading off the seventh inning. That would be it -- one of just three hits the right-hander allowed on the afternoon -- and that would be enough to saddle Bauer with the tough loss. He finished his eight innings of work striking out seven and walking two. In two starts covering 13 innings, Bauer has now allowed a mere three runs. He'll try for similar results to Saturday's (albeit preferably ending in a win) when he toes the home rubber against the Tigers next time out.
Apr 7 - 7:00 PM

Trevor Bauer allowed two runs, striking out seven, over five innings against the Mariners on Sunday.

Bauer threw four clean innings before stumbling in the fifth, allowing two runs and leaving before the game was decided. In all, he gave up five hits and walked three with the seven punchouts. Bauer will keep looking for that first win Saturday against the Royals.
Apr 1 - 7:29 PM

Trevor Bauer struck out seven hitters while allowing just one run in five innings in his start against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Bauer allowed just three hits, and he put one runner on via walk. It was an up-and-down spring for the right-hander, but he showed the bat-missing ability that makes him so intriguing from a fantasy perspective. His first start of the regular season will come on Sunday in Seattle against the Mariners.
Mar 27 - 5:28 PM

Trevor Bauer pitched well in his Cactus League start on Thursday, striking out seven and allowing one run in his six innings of work.

The only blemish for Bauer was a solo shot from Manny Margot in the sixth inning. It's been an inconsistent spring in terms of results for the right-hander, but he's missed plenty of bats in his Arizona action, and he looks ready to pitch in the middle of the Cleveland rotation.
Mar 22 - 5:55 PM

Trevor Bauer fanned seven batters over five innings in Saturday's split-squad Cactus League win over the Cubs.

Bauer has revved up with the strikeout over his last two spring outings, whiffing a combined 15 batters across 10 innings pitched. While he's struggled with consistency in the past, when he's on, Bauer has as much ability to induce swings and misses as most any pitcher in the game. He notched 196 strikeouts in 176 1/3 innings last season. Though to the point on consistency, that sterling strikeout number was paired with a ho-hum 4.19 ERA.
Mar 17 - 7:39 PM

Trevor Bauer struck out eight batters over five innings Monday in a Cactus League start against the Rangers.

Bauer gave up two runs on five hits and a walk, but he got a lot of swing-and-misses and lowered his spring ERA from 8.64 to 6.75. The 27-year-old right-hander carries a good deal of fantasy upside into the 2018 regular season after registering a 4.19 ERA and 196 strikeouts over 176 1/3 innings in 2017.
Mar 12 - 5:52 PM

Trevor Bauer was rocked by the Cubs on Wednesday, giving up eight runs in 3 1/3 innings in his third spring training outing.

Bauer was clean in the first, but gave up multiple runs in the second, third and fourth innings. He was excellent in his previous two starts, so this could just be a cause of Bauer working on some things combined with the Arizona air. He's going to pitch in the middle of the Cleveland rotation and could be a solid fantasy hurler in 2018.
Mar 7 - 9:27 PM

Trevor Bauer allowed one run over three innings Friday against the Rangers.

Bauer gave up three hits while walking none and striking out four. The 27-year-old finished strong in 2017 after throwing more curveballs. He could be primed to put it all together this year.
Mar 2 - 6:37 PM

Trevor Bauer was dominant in his first start of spring training on Sunday; striking out three hitters and not allowing a hit against the Reds in two innings.

It's tough to do much better than this, as Bauer didn't allow a hit and threw 24-of-28 pitches for strikes. The 27-year-old right-hander had his best season in 2017; winning 17 games and striking out 196 hitters in 176 innings. It wouldn't be a shock if he put up similar -- if not better -- numbers as he enters the prime of his career.
Feb 25 - 4:36 PM

Trevor Bauer won his arbitration case against the Indians and will make $6.525 million in 2018.

Cleveland's front office filed at $5.3 million when arbitration figures were exchanged last month, so there was a pretty big gap to navigate here. Bauer went 17-9 with a 4.19 ERA and 196 strikeouts over 176 1/3 innings in 2017.
Feb 15 - 1:37 PM

Trevor Bauer requested $6.525 million and was offered $5.3 million by the Indians when arbitration figures were exchanged on Friday.

The 27-year-old is eligible for arbitration for the first time. He went 17-9 with a 4.19 ERA and 196 strikeouts in 176 1/3 innings last year.
Jan 12 - 6:52 PM

Trevor Bauer lasted just 1 2/3 innings Monday against the Yankees, giving up four unearned runs.

Bauer was making the start on short rest, but you wouldn’t know it based on the radar gun that regularly had him hitting the high-90s. However, the right-hander was unable to pitch around a Giovanny Urshela error in the second, giving up four straight two-out hits as the Yankees mounted a 4-0 lead to KO Bauer. The Bombers wound up with six unearned runs on the night, as Urshela made an additional error and Danny Salazar also had one. The Indians will turn to Corey Kluber in Game 5 as they look to avoid losing a sixth straight potential playoff series clincher.

Indians manager Terry Francona announced Sunday night that Trevor Bauer will start for the Indians in Game 4 of the ALDS against the Yankees on Monday.

Bauer dominated this Yankees' squad in Game 1 of the series in Cleveland, allowing just two hits while striking out eight over 6 2/3 scoreless innings. The right-hander seemed pumped about the assignment and told reporters afterwards, "If I could draw it out, personally, this is how I'd pitch every time." He'll oppose Luis Severino on Monday.
