Trevor Bauer, the gentleman who’s arguably far more regarded for his social media exercise than his pitching, may have just signaled his destiny for the 2022 season with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Final year, soon after sexual assault accusations bought the right-hander positioned on MLB’s administrative go away, the Dodgers did all they could to take out his trace from the franchise. They canceled his bobblehead evening 6 months in advance. They no lengthier experienced any of his gear for sale in the crew retailers. The gamers, coaches and front business did their finest not to elaborate on Bauer’s predicament when they ended up asked.
Now, the assumption amongst baseball insiders is that Bauer will be suspended for all of 2022 at the time the league completes its investigation (which is coinciding with the LA District Attorney’s business office) and then the Dodgers will release him in 2023, eating the $17 million they owe him for that season.
And it seems Bauer’s taken a move towards indicating that pretty well could be his truth as we inch closer to the season’s projected start (can the lockout conclude, remember to?).
Trevor Bauer removes mention of Dodgers from his social media accounts.
We never know particularly when this transpired, but it absolutely was not long ago, because several supporters were questioning why Bauer even now experienced any mention of the group on his Twitter/Instagram accounts considering the fact that it was a foregone summary he’d under no circumstances be pitching for LA once again.
As of Thursday, his Twitter bio reads “For the People” (in addition to his name in Japanese for some cause?) and his Instagram bio states “‘Mickey Mouse’ Cy Youthful winner, MLB All-Star, Youtuber, and the only particular person in the globe to get dunked on by @esim3400.” No a lot more “Pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers.”
So a great deal for that “hint” of returning to the Dodgers about a week back.
Still, this hasn’t stopped him from pretending he’s buddies with persons he most likely has never achieved before.
“Rach.” Alright, dude.
There is one factor to take into account here, nevertheless. The Dodgers are not authorized to get hold of Bauer because of to the lockout, so we can rather much assurance no talks have been held about his long run with the firm amid the ongoing investigation. Maybe he noticed the writing on the wall? Probably he’s unwell of men and women inquiring him about what is to occur in 2022?
Both way, pair this with the ongoing speculation from multiple esteemed insiders, and we consider we can securely suppose what may possibly be going on to the worst signing in Dodgers record up coming time.
