Trevor Bauer said he expects his sliced right pinkie to heal in time for the World Series.
Cleveland has a long layoff after beating the Blue Jays in five games in the ALCS, which might mess with some players but should be a great benefit to Bauer. He suffered a deep cut on the pinkie of his throwing hand last week while cleaning a remotely controlled drone and he had to exit Monday's ALCS Game 3 start in Toronto after just two-thirds of an inning because he couldn't stop bleeding. "I'll be ready to pitch in the World Series whenever they need me," Bauer told reporters on Wednesday. "I'm doing everything I can and I'll be back out there for sure." Oct 20 - 11:33 AM

Prior to Game 5 of the ALCS, Indians manager Terry Francona said that he hoped that Trevor Bauer (finger) could be an option out of the bullpen should the series elongate.

"[We want] to look and see if he's potentially a guy that could pitch out of the bullpen later in this series. I don't know if that's realistic or not," Francona said. Bauer was forced to exit in the first inning of Game 3 after a laceration on his right pinkie opened up. Francona relayed that the cut would be reexamined by hand specialist Dr. Thomas Graham while the Indians are in Toronto.

The Indians aren't ruling out Trevor Bauer (finger) being available to pitch for them in a potential Game 6 or 7 of the ALCS.

Bauer had to depart Monday's Game 3 start after just two-thirds of an inning when the cut on his right pinky opened up. Given how bad it looked, it's hard to imagine the finger being in good enough shape to handle pitching later this week. However, the Indians apparently aren't ruling it out. Ideally, they'd obviously love to close out the Blue Jays as quick as possible and give Bauer plenty of rest before the World Series.

Trevor Bauer departed Monday's ALCS Game 3 against the Blue Jays after two-thirds of an inning when the stitches in his right pinky came loose.

Bauer had his start pushed back after cutting his finger while repairing his drone, and he couldn't make it through one inning even after the extra time to heal. There was blood pouring out of the finger and he simply couldn't go on, as he was pulled with two outs and two runners on. His status for the rest of the ALCS and perhaps the World Series (should the Indians make it) is very much in question. Corey Kluber is now looking likely to start Game 4 on short rest, with Ryan Merritt going in Game 5.

Trevor Bauer has played catch twice since suffering a lacerated right pinky finger while repairing his drone.

Bauer was pushed back from Game 2 to Game 3 of the ALCS following the incident, but the Indians expect him to be fine to pitch Monday in Toronto. The club will obviously keep a close eye on him to make sure the injury isn't affecting him at all. "The first concern is that you hope it doesn't interfere with his touch and feel to pitch," said manager Terry Francona. "I don't think that's an issue because he's already thrown twice. Then we have to make sure that the thing doesn't open up to where it's bleeding, because they won't let him pitch."

Trevor Bauer's first start of the ALCS has been pushed back to Game 3 after he suffered a non-baseball injury to his right pinky.

Bauer apparently cut the outside of his pinky while repairing his drone. Seriously. He'll get a couple extra days to heal and will start the first game in Toronto, with Josh Tomlin moving up to start Game 2 in Cleveland. Corey Kluber is opposing Marco Estrada in Game 1 on Friday.
Oct 14 - 3:07 PM

The Indians are expected to start Trevor Bauer on short rest in Game 4 of the ALDS versus the Red Sox on Monday.

The club hasn't officially announced anything yet, but it was Bauer at a pregame press conference Sunday, something that's usually reserved for the next day's starting pitcher. Bauer allowed three runs in 4 2/3 innings Thursday in Game 1, throwing 78 pitches. The 25-year-old has never started a game on three days' rest before, but he did have a relief appearance this season on three days' rest where he threw five scoreless innings.
Oct 9 - 10:33 AM

Trevor Bauer yielded three runs in 4 2/3 innings Thursday in Game 1 of the ALDS against the Red Sox.

Bauer was thrown into the Game 1 start out of necessity, but he did a respectable job under the circumstances. He got off to a shaky start in the first inning, but replay review helped limit the damage to one run. Andrew Benintendi and Sandy Leon later connected for solo homers, but Bauer didn’t issue a walk and struck out six batters. He was pulled in favor of Andrew Miller with two outs in the fifth.
Oct 6 - 11:51 PM

Trevor Bauer will start Game 1 of the ALDS Thursday against the Red Sox.

Bauer is probably the Indians' fourth-best starter but injuries have forced him into a more prominent role. Terry Francona is playing it safe with Corey Kluber's quad by slotting him in for Friday's Game 2. Given how thin the Indians' rotation has suddenly become, there's a good chance Bauer would get the ball again on short rest in Game 4, if the series makes it that far.
Oct 1 - 8:50 PM

Trevor Bauer let up six hits, three runs and two walks over six innings Saturday in a no-decision against the Royals.

He also delivered nine strikeouts. Bauer looked sharp early but seemed to run out of gas in the sixth. Kansas City got to him for two runs and three hits in the inning. Bauer wasn't anything special this year, going 12-8 with a 4.26 ERA over 35 appearances (28 starts). The Indians will need him to step up in the playoffs with Carlos Carrasco, Corey Kluber and Danny Salazar all dealing with injuries.
Oct 1 - 8:05 PM

Trevor Bauer picked up his 12th victory of the season on Friday, limiting the White Sox to four runs on seven hits over his 7 2/3 innings.

Bauer punched out six on the night while walking two. All of the damage against him came via the long ball, with Melky Cabrera and Avisail Garcia each belting two-run homers. He'll take on the Tigers in Detroit on Wednesday in his final start of the regular season.
Sep 23 - 10:49 PM

Trevor Bauer was lit up for six runs in 5 2/3 innings by the Tigers on Sunday.

Bauer hit three batters early on, causing some unhappiness in the Detroit dugout. It wasn't anything intentional; he was just way off today. With Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar down, the Indians badly need a better Bauer in October. However, he's given up 17 runs in his last three starts.
Sep 18 - 4:56 PM

Trevor Bauer allowed six runs on six hits over 5 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox.

Bauer had given up just two singles through his first five innings of work, but things fell apart in the sixth. After a leadoff walk, the only walk he issued on the night, the Sox strung together four singles sandwiched around a strikeout. That ended Bauer's evening, and reliever Dan Otero allowed another two inherited runs to score to further sully Bauer's line. Bauer owners can take heart in knowing that it wasn't as bad as it looks in the box score -- he also struck out seven in the game -- and the 25-year-old should bounce back in short order. He'll carry a 4.06 ERA into Sunday's start against the Tigers.
Sep 14 - 12:19 AM

Trevor Bauer won despite giving up five runs in five-plus innings Thursday against the Astros.

Where are the strikeouts? Bauer fanned two today. He struck out 13 against the Blue Jays on Aug. 19, but in none of his other most recent eight starts has he finished with more than four strikeouts. We'd definitely feel better about his chances of succeeding in the postseason if the strikeouts came back. Still, he's a respectable 11-6 with a 3.86 ERA at the moment. He'll get the White Sox next, which represents a pretty good opportunity for some strikeouts.
Sep 8 - 4:38 PM

Trevor Bauer allowed three runs in the first inning but righted the ship to throw 8 1/3 innings in a win over the Marlins on Saturday.

The Marlins had scored three runs by their sixth batter of the game, but Bauer gave up just one more hit the rest of the evening. The win improved him to 10-6 with a 3.70 ERA and 1.27 WHIP on the year. Bauer will next take the hill Thursday against the Astros.
