According to various sources, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer will not face charges following an inquiry into domestic abuse allegations from last year.

Bauer and a San Diego woman had two sexual encounters last spring that were revealed to the public. After an inquiry into the initial encounter, Bauer was not charged, and there was reportedly insufficient evidence to indicate that Bauer committed a crime.

Moreover, for the first sexual encounter on April 22, the District Attorney’s Office rejected the assault charges by means likely to cause great bodily harm and sodomy of an unconscious person, as well as domestic violence during the second encounter on May 16.

The District Attorney’s Office stated: “After a thorough review of all the available evidence, including the civil restraining order proceedings, witness statements and the physical evidence, the People are unable to prove the relevant charges beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Bauer, who was placed on administrative leave for the final three months of the 2021 regular season, still faces probable restraint from Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred, who has the authority to impose suspensions under the domestic violence policy that was initially agreed upon with the MLB Players Association.

Since MLB and the MLBPA announced their domestic violence policy in August 2015, 16 players have been penalized, with sanctions ranging from 15 to 162 games.
