Former Cy Young Award winner Trevor Bauer (Yokohama DeNA BayStars) 토스카지노 will attempt to reach 10 wins against the Central League-leading Hanshin Tigers.
According to a report from Japanese sports outlet Junichi Sports on Saturday, Bauer will start the home game against Hanshin on April 20 at Yokohama Stadium.
Bauer, who made his Japanese debut this season, is 9-3 in 16 appearances, including two complete games. He has a 2.82 ERA and is on a three-game winning streak since his last start against Junichi on March 27. In particular, he has gone seven innings or more in four consecutive games, showing his innings-eating ability.
He has faced Hanshin twice this season. He has one win, but hasn’t pitched very well, as evidenced by his 4.61 ERA.
Bauer, on the other hand, is a major league ace with a career record of 83-69 with a 3.79 ERA in 222 games (1297⅔ innings).
After making his big league debut with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2012, Bauer earned his first double-digit win season (11-12) with the Cleveland Indians in 2015, followed by 12-8 in 2016 and a career-high 17-9 in 2017. He reached the 10-win plateau for the fifth straight year with 12-6 in 2018 and 11-13 in 2019.
In 2020, he went 5-4 with a 1.73 ERA in 11 starts (73 innings) and won the National League Cy Young Award. However, he hasn’t pitched in a major league game since June 29, 2021, as he has been embroiled in a sexual assault controversy.
Major League Baseball suspended Bauer for 342 games, but he appealed the suspension, which was eventually reduced to 194 games. The Dodgers released him, however, and after failing to find a team, Bauer was eventually given the opportunity to extend his career in Japan. /firstname.lastname@example.org
