Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer has been suspended 324 games (2 years) by commissioner Rob Manfred for violating Major League Baseball’s policy on sexual assault and domestic violence.

These suspensions are unpaid, and players cannot play while they appeal.

This suspension would extend beyond the expiration of his Dodgers contract and is the longest suspension for violating this policy.

Pending a possible successful appeal, Bauer will lose out on earning $32 million in salary this year and in 2023.

Bauer took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the suspension, which he says he will be appealing.

“In the strongest possible terms, I deny committing any violation of the league’s domestic violence & sexual assault policy,” Bauer said. “I am appealing this action and expect to prevail. As we have throughout this process, my representatives & I respect the confidentiality of the proceedings.”
