Trevor Bauer latest – Accuser says MLB pitcher 'assaulted her' but star's agent Jon Fetterolf says claims are 'baseless'

LOS Angeles Dodgers star Trevor Bauer has been accused of assault by an ex – but he claims she asked to be "choked during sex."

The pitcher, 30, is being investigated by police following allegations he inflicted "severe physical and emotional pain" on a woman he met online.

But Bauer's agent Jon Fetterolf told TMZ: "Mr. Bauer had a brief and wholly consensual sexual relationship initiated by [the accuser] beginning in April 2021.

The woman's attorney Marc Garelick said: "We anticipate there will be criminal action against Mr. Bauer, and it is our hope law enforcement will take our client’s allegations and case seriously."

The Dodgers said in a statement they take “any allegations of this nature seriously.”
