Trevor Bauer was placed on a seven-day administrative leave from Major League Baseball last Friday, and his time away from the Los Angeles Dodgers will be extended.
Bauer’s leave will be extended for at least another seven days, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.
MLB’s policy on domestic violence allows a player to be put on leave for up to seven days while allegations are investigated. Shaikin noted that the MLB Players Association agreed to extend Bauer’s license for another week.
Bauer is accused of assaulting a woman with whom he had two sexual encounters this year. The woman says the encounters began as consensual before going beyond what she agreed to. She sought medical attention for the injuries she suffered after her second encounter, which took place on May 15.
Bauer says the woman sought hard sex from him and that everything was consensual.
The woman received an ex parte restraining order, which is granted based solely on the charges. Bauer will have his chance to respond on July 23rd. The Pasadena Police Department is investigating the incident, but Bauer has not been charged with a crime.
