MLB Insider explains how Trevor Bauer will appeal his suspension

MLB announced Friday that it will suspend Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer for two years.

The suspension will not include the games he has already missed during his administrative leave, so in theory it will be more than the two years announced.

In all, Bauer will miss the next 324 games, and his future with the Dodgers (and in the league, to be honest) is in serious question.

The pitcher said he denies “having committed any violation of the league’s domestic violence and sexual assault policy” and made it clear that he “will appeal this action and hope it prevails.”

How exactly are you going to appeal?

MLB insider Britt Ghiroli, who covers league-related news for The Athletic, explained how.

“Bauer is going to appeal the leagues decision, which will send it to an independent arbitration hearing in New York,” he said via Twitter on Friday afternoon.

His playing career is in danger

It’s unclear what exactly Bauer can get in the appeals process, if he can get a reduction of his removal stay, but what we do know is that it will be handled by an independent arbitration hearing.

Bauer allegedly had two sexual encounters with a San Diego woman that were described as extremely graphic in nature.

Bauer appears to have avoided any legal trouble, but his career will be severely affected by the incident unless there is a major reversal of the ruling through appeal.
