LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - MAY 31: Trevor Bauer #27 of the Los Angeles Dodgers pitches during the first inning against the St. Louis Cardinals at Dodger Stadium on May 31, 2021 in Los Angeles, California.

NEW YORK (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer has been suspended for two full seasons without pay by Major League Baseball for violating the league’s domestic violence and sexual assault policy, which he denies. Bauer’s punishment comes after a San Diego woman, whom the pitcher had met through social media, alleged that Bauer beat and sexually abused her last year.

Los Angeles prosecutors said in February there was insufficient evidence to prove the woman’s accusations beyond a reasonable doubt.

If the suspension is upheld, Bauer will lose about $60 million in salary.
