Bauer spent the 2023 season in Japan. He went 10-4 with a 2.76 ERA for the Yokohama BayStars. Over his last 15 starts, Bauer went 9-2 with a 1.97 ERA.
Bauer last pitched in MLB on June 28, 2021 when he pitched 6 innings to lead the Los Angeles Dodgers to a win over the San Francisco Giants.
Bauer won the NL Cy Young Award during the shortened 2020 season. He went 5-4 with a 1.73 ERA for the Reds that year, which helped him land a 3-year, $102 million deal with the Dodgers. Bauer went 8-5 with a 2.59 ERA over 17 starts with the Dodgers in 2021 before being placed on paid leave over allegations of sexual misconduct.
Bauer was never criminally charged over the accusations he faced from Lindsey Hill. Both Bauer and Hill dropped their respective lawsuits against each other last month. After the lawsuits were dropped, Bauer released a video via social media that helped change the public’s perception of him and the allegations he faced.
Recently, one of Bauer’s prominent former teammates supported the pitcher’s case to return to MLB.
