Last month, Bauer was reinstated following a 194 game suspension. The Dodgers have until Friday to trade him, otherwise he becomes a free agent.
Bauer’s original sentence was a 324 games suspension, the equivalent of two full MLB seasons.
Bauer, 31, was placed on administrative leave in July 2021 in wake of allegations he sexually assaulted a woman. Bauer last pitched on June 28, 2021, which was one day before a woman obtained a temporary restraining order against him.
