Trevor Bauer Denies Committing Sexual Assault After Being Suspended Two Years Without Pay

In his statement, the baseball pitcher insists that he doesn't violate any of the league's domestic violence and sexual assault policy following his suspension, which will cover 324 games without pay.

AceShowbiz - Trevor Bauer has issued a response after he was hit with a two-year suspension without pay from MLB following an investigation. In his statement, the baseball pitcher denied committing any misconduct.

"In the strongest possible terms, I deny committing any violation of the league's domestic violence and sexual assault policy," the 31-year-old athlete said on Friday, April 29. "I am appealing this action and expect to prevail. As we have throughout this process, my representatives and I respect the confidentiality of the proceedings."

Earlier that day, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred announced his suspension, which will cover 324 games without pay. Trevor, who joined the Dodgers last season as a free agent, was initially placed on administrative leave on July 2, 2021.

On April 25, Trevor filed a lawsuit against the accuser, Lindsey Hill. In his motion, the athlete sued the woman and her attorney, Niranjan Fred Thiagarajah, for defamation and other legal violations.

"Ms. Hill's goal was to lure Mr. Bauer into having a rougher sexual experience so she could alter claim this sexual experience was not what she requested and thereby lay the groundwork for a financial settlement," the court docs read. In the paperwork, Trevor also insisted that Lindsey and her legal team released filtered and altered photographs.

Trevor admitted that he met Lindsey twice and engaged in sex in the filing. During the first encounter, they discussed Lindsey's sexual references and engaged in consensual rough sex. Trevor later insisted that throughout the first sexual encounter, he asked Lindsey if she was fine with it and whether she wanted to continue. "Each time she said she wanted to continue," read the suit.

Trevor and Lindsey agreed to meet again on a night after Trevor pitched. They, for the second time, engaged in rough sex with Lindsey asking the pitcher to slap her "harder" at one point.

The next morning, Lindsey texted friends and said Trevor assaulted her and she was injured though she stated in her messages that the sex was consensual. However, Trevor insisted he never punched her during the intimate moment.

Lindsey then filed a "false" police report which accused Trevor of sexually assaulting her. According to his filing, she also sought a restraining order against him as she knew it would garner attention.

Last August, Lindsey's lawyer unleashed new proof in the sexual assault case. In a photo launched by her attorney, she could be seen sporting black eyes which she claimed she got after "rough" sexual encounters with the athlete.
