Dodgers Star Trevor Bauer, on Leave Amid Assault Probe, Was Subject of Previous Protection Order

Aug 14, 2021

Per The Washington Post: Trevor Bauer, the star Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher under investigation on allegations of sexual assault in California, was the subject of a temporary order of protection sought by a different woman last year, according to sealed court records reviewed by The Washington Post.

An Ohio woman sought the order in June 2020 after repeated threats from the then-Cincinnati Reds pitcher, according to her lawyer and records separately obtained by The Post. Photographs independently obtained by The Post also show bruises on the woman’s face and blood in her eyes, which her attorney said were caused by Bauer punching and choking her during sex without consent. Those allegations are similar to ones made by a woman in Los Angeles this summer when she applied for a temporary restraining order.
