Former Cy Young Young who was kicked out of ML for assault on a woman, to a fresh start in Japan… “My dream is NPB”

Trevor Bauer (32) will eventually head to the Japanese stage.

The Yokohama DeNA Baystars club announced on the 14th that it had agreed to a contract with Bauer for 400 million yen (approximately 3.9 billion won) for one year.

Bauer won the National League Cy Young Award in 2020 with the Cincinnati Reds, going 5-4 with a 1.73 ERA in 11 games.

After qualifying as a free agent, he signed a contract with the Dodgers for 3 years and 102 million dollars.

Off-field conduct ended his career as a major leaguer. He was accused of assaulting a woman he had sex with. Although the prosecution was not prosecuted due to insufficient evidence, two additional victims came out, and in the end, the Major League Secretariat issued a 324-game suspension.

An appeal reduced him to 194 games, allowing him to return to the major leagues this season, but the Dodgers released Bauer. Other major league clubs also declared that they could not recruit.

He continued, “I’m glad I was given the opportunity to become part of a great team and aim for the championship together. I’m already looking forward to meeting the players and fans. I look forward to seeing you in Yokohama.”
