Will he become the best foreign player ever in Japanese professional baseball? Trevor Bauer (32), who became a duck egg in the Nakdong River due to an incomprehensible measure by the Major League Secretariat, is advancing to Japan.
Various Japanese media outlets, including Nikkan Sports, reported on the 14th (Korean time) that Yokohama DeNA Baystars had signed a one-year contract with Bauer. The condition is an annual salary of $4 million.
This made Bauer return to the mound after two seasons since the 2021 season. Bauer did not play a single game last year.
Bauer was accused of assaulting a woman in 2021 while having sex with her. In response, the MLB Secretariat placed Bauer on administrative leave.
Later, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office dismissed Bauer’s charges due to insufficient evidence. However, the MLB office rather punished Bauer in April of last year.
Although he was not punished by law, he was punished with mixed feelings of suspension for 324 games. He has more than four times the punishment he receives after being caught taking a banned substance.
Ultimately, the MLB reduced Bauer’s suspension from 324 to 194 games. However, there was no reason why Bauer should be suspended for 194 games.
This is an unprecedented punishment.안전놀이터 Athletes who caused controversy not only for taking banned substances but also for actual dating violence did not receive the same disciplinary action as Bauer.
In addition, the Los Angeles Dodgers gave Bauer a notice of release, and no team in the major leagues showed any intention to recruit him. As a result, Bauer became a duck egg in the Nakdonggang River.
Eventually, Bauer leaves the American stage and heads to Japan. Given Bauer’s age and skills, he could be the best foreign player in Japanese professional baseball.
