Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer is under investigation by police in Pasadena, CA after a woman claims he assaulted her earlier this year, according to TMZ.

The woman’s lawyer, Marc Garelick, says that she “suffered severe physical and emotional pain.”

She was also granted granted a temporary domestic violence restraining order on Tuesday, according to TMZ.

TMZ reports that, according to sources, “Bauer is adamant the encounter was nothing more than consensual, rough sex with someone he met online.”

But, sources close to the case say Bauer is adamant the encounter was nothing more than consensual, rough sex with someone he met online. We’re told they hooked up twice.

TMZ adds that Bauer “is cooperating with authorities.”

Bauer’s attorney, Jon Fetterolf, has released a statement following TMZ’s report.

According to Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post, Major League Baseball just learned of the allegations on Tuesday night and is “looking into the matter.”

Bauer won the NL Cy Young Award with the Cincinnati Reds in 2020, before signing a three-year, $102 million contract with the Dodgers over the offseason.
