Jorge Sedano asks why Trevor Bauer wasn't placed on administrative leave by the Dodgers before MLB intervened. (2:21).
Major League Baseball investigators have five days left in Trevor Bauer’s current administrative leave. This was granted after he was charged with sexual assault. Sources say that Major League Baseball investigators are conducting a variety of inquiries.
Investigators plan to speak with the woman who got a restraining or against Bauer last week. Sources say that MLB investigators have spoken with her lawyer to date but are keen to speak directly with her.
Bauer was charged with domestic violence. Bauer filed a domestic violence restraining warrant against Bauer on Monday. The woman claimed that Bauer had strangled her to unconsciousness, punched her repeatedly during sex, and left her with serious injuries that required her hospitalization. Bauer denied the allegations.
Sources said that investigators are looking into Bauer's past and asking whether there were other incidents. This is a line of inquiry MLB has used in domestic violence cases. MLB officials want to speak with Bauer at some point. However, it is not clear if this will happen anytime soon.
The Pasadena Police Department is investigating the Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher. Any conversation with MLB will be subpoenaed. The case will be sent to Pasadena's district attorney's office.
According to theory, Bauer's administrative leave will end on Friday. In the past, however, it has been repeated that MLB players who are under criminal investigation have moved to indefinite leave to allow for the resolution of legal issues and for baseball to move its investigations.
