LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer will miss the rest of the season.
Major League Baseball and the players’ association extended his administrative leave through the end of the World Series.
Bauer has been on unpaid leave since July 2, when a woman reported that Bauer had choked them. She has also been accused of sexual assault on two occasions.
Bauer denies any wrongdoing.
Bauer was expected to be on leave for an extended period of time, as he had not pitched since June 29, and was running out the time to get in shape to return to pitch while there were still games.
The regular season ends Oct. 3. In general, the minimum time needed to get pitchers ready for action is three weeks.
