Calling Reds’ pitcher Trevor Bauer the strangest man in baseball seems fair. Bauer’s actions on the field and off would support that league-wide, and I’m sure the Dodgers are well aware. Whether it be drones, weird workouts, tell-all YouTube sessions, or social media issues, Bauer comes with some baggage.
However much baggage he comes with, he also happens to be one of the best pitchers in baseball right now. In fact, there’s a really good chance that Bauer walks away with the NL Cy Young Award in 2020 after a ridiculous campaign. The 29-year-old Los Angeles native has expressed interest in coming to the Dodgers in the past, and he reignited that idea on Tuesday.
