Major League Baseball and the Players' Association on Friday extended Trevor Bauer's administrative leave by one week, through Sept. 3.
This is the seventh extension of an investigation into allegations against Bauer of sexual misconduct.
MLB can place any player on administrative leave unilaterally for up to 7 days in accordance with a joint domestic violence policy. However, it must first obtain the consent of the MLB Players Association. Bauer has not been with the Dodgers since July 2, when he was placed on leave.
A woman has accused Bauer, aged 30, of choking her to death, punching her in multiple areas, and leaving her with severe injuries. This was according to a domestic violence restraining or that was filed in L.A. County Superior Court June 28. ESPN obtained copies.
After Dianna Gould Saltman, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge, ruled against Bauer's request to revoke her temporary restraining order, the order was dismantled on August 19.
