Bauer is accused of assaulting a woman on two occasions earlier this year. The woman in question said Bauer committed multiple non-consensual acts after what began as consensual sex, including choking her unconscious and inducing head trauma via repeated punches to the head.

MLB can suspend Bauer under its personal conduct policy regardless of any legal proceedings. Bauer is currently in his 10th MLB season and his first with Los Angeles.
