All-Star pitcher Trevor Bauer won’t be around for the next two MLB seasons after he was suspended for sexual assault allegations.

This means that the 31-year-old will miss two full seasons, a total of 324 games, NBC Sports reported.

The Dodgers placed the 2020 NL Cy Young Award winner on administrative leave last July 2, 2021, after he was accused of sexual assault.

It would be best to note that the Los Angeles District Attorney opted not to move forward with the criminal charges last February. However, Major League Baseball went on to suspend Bauer for violating the league’s Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy.

The All-Star pitcher is appealing the decision that he will be unpaid for two years.

“In the strongest possible terms, I deny committing any violation of the league’s domestic violence and sexual assault policy. I am appealing this action and expect to prevail," Bauer posted on his Twitter account.

The move also means that Bauer would be the first MLB player to appeal a domestic violence suspension. There have been 16 players investigated for the same case.

All 16 other athletes suspended under baseball’s sexual assault and domestic violence policy have agreed to a negotiated settlement.

As this developed, a third woman has come forward to accuse Bauer of crossing the line during sex. The unnamed female claims that she was choked unconscious and slapped in the face without consent back in 2013 and 2014, TMZ reported.

The woman says she met Bauer via a dating app in 2013. The All-Star player was still a member of the Cleveland minor league team in Columbus at the time.

The third woman claims Bauer choked her unconscious dozens of times ... and he would only stop if she "got pissed and was like desperate about it" or if she passed out.
