MLB extends Bauer’s leave amid investigation

Trevor Bauer’s administrative leave was extended by seven days on Thursday, as Major League Baseball continues its investigation into sexual assault allegations against the Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher.

The extension, which came on the final day of Bauer’s initial leave, was attained with the consent of the MLB Players Association. The MLBPA must grant consent for any extension of administrative leave, which guarantees players full compensation and service time while investigations proceed.

MLB and the Pasadena Police Department are conducting separate investigations into Bauer after a woman accused him of choking her until she lost consciousness on multiple occasions, punching her in several areas of her body and leaving her with injuries that required hospitalization over the course of two sexual encounters this year.

Bauer’s co-agents, Rachel Luba and Jon Fetterolf, released a statement shortly after MLB’s announcement Thursday.
