Bauer, who’s been in the majors since 2012, has bounced around the league for most of his career.
While he’s been with four different teams during his career, these things aren’t jeopardizing his career.
His career is in jeopardy since sexual assault allegations came out about him in 2021.
While the allegations didn’t lead to criminal charges, it didn’t stop MLB from giving him a two-year suspension.
However, the suspension is now 194 games after an arbitrator reviewed the case.
But this didn’t stop the Dodgers from releasing him soon after the ruling.
Took long enough. See ya! 👋

While he’s without a team, do these past allegations mean his MLB career is over?
ESPN writer Aiden Gonzalez shed some light on what he thinks could happen to Bauer.
In his talks with multiple people in the MLB community, he gets the feeling things aren’t looking good for him.
During a video, Gonzalez explains how people he talked with signaled that Bauer getting a new team was “unlikely, but certainly not impossible.”
With the accusations out there, and him still suspended for some of 2023, teams are afraid to hire him.
They might fear blowback similar to that of the Cleveland Browns after they got Deshaun Watson.
Even with Bauer being a free man, the accusations have put a dark cloud on his career.
It’s those accusations that might end his baseball career, regardless if they are true or not.
