Yankees Mets will not go because of the signing of Trevor Bauer
As the days go by, more MLB teams have made it known that they will not go after the signing of Trevor Bauernow that he has officially become a free agent after being released by the los angeles dodgers this Thursday (January 12).
In addition to the San Diego Padres, the Yankees, Mets and Twins have also taken a dig at Bauer, according to an article by Jon Heyman in the New York Post. In this way, there are already four clubs that have refused to add the controversial starter to their rotation.
Nearly a week since he was designated for assignment by the Dodgers, it’s unclear if any major league team wants to make a deal with Bauer, who, following his trial in court after allegedly sexually assaulting a woman in his native California, he was first placed on the restrictive list and then suspended for 324 games by MLB.
After a successful appeal, Bauer’s punishment was cut to 194 games, which he has already served and which is why the league has given him the green light to pitch again. However, that dark passage could stain him for life without ever receiving a second chance at the best baseball in the world.
