Major League Baseball announced on Friday Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer a 324
game suspension, equivalent to two full-time seasons
and the harshest punishment under the game's domestic violence policy.
Bauer immediately issued a statement announcing that he would appeal the discipline,
becoming the first player to appeal a conviction under MLB's domestic violence policy.
Bauer said in a statement that "we most strongly deny any violation of the League's policy on domestic violence and se*ual harassment.
“I will appeal this action and I hope to win. In this process
I and my agent respect the confidentiality of the process."
