Trevor Bauer has ALCS start pushed back due to bizarre drone-related injury
Trevor Bauer will have to wait a bit longer to make what is likely the biggest start of his career.
The Cleveland Indians pitcher was originally slated to start Game 2 of the American League Championship Series against the Toronto Blue Jays, but he has seen that start pushed back a game due to an injury that required stitches to his finger.
The cause of the injury probably won’t please many within the organization.
#Indians RHP Trevor Bauer scratched from Game 2 with cut on his finger, which needed stitches. Tomlin starting Game 2. Bauer, Game 3.

Trevor Bauer lacerated his pinky on the outside of his right hand repairing a drone according to Antonetti.

Probably not the thing Cleveland would have liked Bauer to be doing days before a big postseason start. He’s kind of an offbeat guy, though. He’s probably going to do whatever it is he wants to do.
