Trevor Bauer appears to be public enemy No. 1.
The Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher is back in the news this weekend after the Washington Post reported he was the subject of a protective order by a second woman in 2020. Bauer reportedly was involved in another similar incident that led a different woman to seek a protective order against him in 2020. An Ohio woman sought a protective order against Bauer after reportedly receiving repeated threats from the pitcher.
A police report was filed after the woman showed pictures of her red eyes to police, claiming Bauer was responsible. The woman also claimed Bauer caused bruises on the woman’s face and blood in her eye after reportedly choking and punching her during sex without consent in 2018.
“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 was 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.”
Many of the texts Bauer allegedly sent the woman contain threats of extreme physical and sexual violence. “I don’t feel like spending time in jail for killing someone,” one message allegedly from Bauer reads. “And that’s what would happen if I saw you again.” Bauer allegedly told the woman he would send a video of the two having sex to a member of the woman’s family.
Bauer’s lawyer and agent, Jon Fetterolf, and agent Rachel Luba called the latest allegations of physical abuse “categorically false”, in a statement to The Washington Post.
Bauer attempted to discredit the Ohio woman’s story, saying the woman is trying to extort Bauer for money.
He has not pitched for the Dodgers since June 28.
