Trevor Bauer calls out reporter over injury timetable

Trevor Bauer

Trevor Bauer called out a Cleveland Indians reporter over Twitter for seemingly trying to start a controversy.

Bauer has a stress fracture after being hit in the right leg with a line drive on Saturday. Indians manager Terry Francona said on Friday that the pitcher is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, which could put his playoff availability in jeopardy.

Cleveland.com’s Paul Hoynes tweeted about the matter and said that Bauer’s timetable differs from Francona’s.

According to The Athletic, here’s what Bauer said about his injury timetable:

“Anywhere between tomorrow and never. We’ll find out. You’re going to get a very different answer if you ask me that question and if you ask the medical staff that question, so probably should defer to doctors on that,” Bauer said.

So Bauer says defer to the doctors. Hoynes says Bauer said his timetable was different from the team. Something doesn’t add up.

Bauer decided to call Hoynes out about that.

Hoynes gave a sarcastic response to Bauer, who maintained his unhappiness with the reporter.

Hoynes is the same reporter who declared the Indians’ season over in mid-September during the 2016 season. The team went on to reach the World Series. Maybe he just likes being wrong.

And did he really think Trevor Bauer of all people wouldn’t respond? He should know better.
