LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer will miss the rest of the season.
Major League Baseball extended his administrative leave to the end of the World Series by the players’ association.
Bauer has been on unpaid leave since July 2, when a woman reported that Bauer had strangled her. She also claimed that she was subject to sexual abuse on two occasions.
Bauer denied any allegation.
Bauer had not pitched since June 29th and was running out on time to get into shape. Bauer also wanted to prolong Bauer’s furlough.
The regular season ends October 3. In general, the minimum start-up period for pitchers is three weeks.
