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.

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.
Mar 30 - 1:24 PM

Trevor Bauer fired six innings of shutout ball Tuesday against the Angels.

Bauer did allow seven hits to a lineup without many Anaheim regulars, but five of those hits were singles and the other two were harmless doubles. He struck out seven and didn't walk a batter, wrapping up the Cactus League with a promising 2.25 ERA and 19/4 K/BB in 20 innings. The right-hander could be on the verge of a breakout in what will be his age-25 season. It's certainly worth the late-round gamble.
Mar 29 - 5:59 PM

Trevor Bauer tossed four innings of one-run ball Sunday versus the Royals.

Bauer entered the game in the fourth inning and grabbed his first Cactus League win, yielding just two hits and zero walks while whiffing three Kansas City hitters. The young right-hander should again have matchup-to-matchup value in standard fantasy leagues this season. And if he figures out his control issues, Bauer could suddenly become a high-value post-hype fantasy sleeper.
Mar 13 - 7:19 PM

Trevor Bauer tossed three innings of one-run ball Tuesday in the Indians' win over the Mariners.

Bauer retired the first four batters he faced in the afternoon outing at Goodyear Ballpark, but Dae Hoe Lee drew a one-out walk in the second, Shawn O'Malley followed with a single, and then Mike Zunino drove in Seattle's first run with a sacrifice fly to deep center field. Bauer did strike out two batters in the mostly-positive outing. He should go four innings this weekend.
Mar 8 - 5:52 PM

Trevor Bauer yielded a pair of solo homers over three innings in his Cactus League debut Friday against the White Sox.

Bauer gave up three hits in all while striking out three. The former top prospect was yanked from the rotation down the stretch last year, but he would appear to have a spot locked up this spring. Still, he's too maddeningly inconsistent to trust on a start-to-start basis in standard mixed fantasy leagues.
Mar 4 - 6:49 PM

Trevor Bauer limited the Twins to one run and two hits over seven innings on Thursday.

And then his bullpen let him down. Still, Bauer finished up with an awfully positive outing after losing his rotation spot earlier this month. He ends the year with a 4.55 ERA, though that came with a solid 1.31 WHIP and 170 strikeouts in 176 innings. One would think he'd conquer the mental side of pitching at some point. It's just worth wondering if it'll happen with the Indians or if he's going to be traded first.

Trevor Bauer will start on Thursday against the Twins.

The Indians need another starter after Wednesday's doubleheader, so Bauer will get another shot after spending the last couple weeks in the bullpen. He holds a 4.69 ERA over 30 appearances -- 29 starts -- this season.

The Indians are moving Trevor Bauer to the bullpen.

It will start immediately. The Indians have more starters than rotation spots right now and Bauer has been the weak link of late, posting a 6.39 ERA with 28 walks in 43 2/3 innings dating back to the start of August. It's not expected to be a long-term move, but fantasy owners shouldn't count on much from him the rest of the way.

Trevor Bauer was knocked around in Sunday's loss to the Tigers, surrendering six runs on seven hits over his three-plus innings.

Bauer punched out five and walked three before his early departure. The Tigers struck for a pair of runs against him in the third inning then pushed another four across to chase him from the game in the fourth. While he has tremendous stuff, the right-hander continues to be brutally inconsistent from start to start. He'll look to improve upon his 4.71 ERA and 1.34 WHIP when he does battle against the White Sox on Friday.

Trevor Bauer walked five but yielded just two hits over seven innings to pick up a win in Monday's 3-2 victory over the White Sox.

Bauer also hit a batter in addition to the five free passes, but he gave up just two hits and struck out six to limit the damage. After appearing to take a step forward in the first half, Bauer has posted a 5.73 ERA and has walked 30 over 59 2/3 frames since the All-Star break. He'll get the Tigers this weekend.

Trevor Bauer lost in tough fashion on Wednesday against the Blue Jays, serving up five runs in 1 1/3 innings.

The Blue Jays put two runs on the board in the first inning on run-scoring singles, then tacked on three more runs when Bauer allowed three consecutive one-out hits. He gave up six hits and a walk while striking out two overall. The inconsistent right-hander now has a 4.56 ERA with a 1.32 WHIP and a 154/68 K/BB ratio over 158 innings. Bauer will try to turn things around in a road start against the White Sox next.

Trevor Bauer was superb in Friday's 3-1 win over the Angels, firing off eight innings of one-run ball.

Bauer struck out seven and walked three. Even after eight innings, he had only thrown 101 pitches--a sign either of Bauer's dominance or the free-swinging ways of the Angels. Only a Kaleb Cowart RBI single in the fifth prevented the shutout. While the 24-year-old right-hander isn't at the point where these types of outings are a possibility on a start-to-start basis, his 4.31 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 145/61 K/BB ratio across 150 2/3 innings are respectable enough. There's still room to grow for the youngster. Up next on the docket, a road start against the Blue Jays, which should act as a nice challenge.
