Los Angeles Dodgers Star Trevor Bauer may face the biggest challenge off the field, given the details of allegations of sexual assault in a bombshell Wednesday report.
Bauer was accused of assaulting her on two occasions. The domestic violence restraining orders were filed by the woman against Bauer and executed on June 28. The Athletic obtained the 67-page documents. They reportedly contained graphic images that were provided by the woman.
Bauer is accused of punching the woman in the head, stomach, and buttocks during those two incidents. Bauer was also accused in the second incident of sticking his fingers down the throat of the woman and then choking it until she lost consciousness.
The Athletic reported that the first sexual encounters were consensual.
The woman claimed that she sustained multiple injuries in her second encounter. She said she had two black eyes, a bloodied lip and bruises on one side of her head. The victim also suffered "significant head, facial and skull trauma" as well as a skull fracture.
According to the victim, Bauer allegedly entered her anally while she was unconscious. This was something she didn't consent to before it happened.
The victim stated that he had consented to consensual sexual sex, but that he did not agree to or consent to the next step. The documents were obtained via The Athletic. "I didn't agree to be sexually assaulted."
In a statement obtained Tuesday night by Fox News, Jon Fetterolf, Bauer's agent, denied the allegations against him.
"Mr. Bauer was involved in a brief, consensual relationship with [the woman] that began in April 2021. We have received messages showing that the woman repeatedly asked for 'rough' sexual encounters, including requests to be 'choked-out' and slapped in their faces. The woman drove from San Diego to Mr. Bauer’s Pasadena, Calif. residence, where she dictated what she wanted sexually to him. He did what she asked. After her two encounters with Mr. Bauer, the woman spent the night there and then left. She continued to text Mr. Bauer and exchange flirtatious and friendly banter with him throughout the night. The woman shared photographs of herself in the days that followed their final encounter and stated that she had received medical attention for a concussion. "Mr. Bauer replied with concern and confusion. The woman was neither angry nor accusatory," read the statement.
"Mr. Bauer has not corresponded with [the woman] in more than a month, and they have not seen each others in more than six weeks. The basis she used to file a protection order was nonexistent and fraudulent. She deliberately omits key facts and information and her own communications. Defamatory and baseless allegations that the encounters between the couple were not 100 percent consensual will be denied to the fullest extent permitted by law."
Fox News also reported that Bauer's representatives said they would refute the claims at a hearing on July 23.
Fox News reported that Pasadena police in California confirmed to Fox News that they were investigating the allegations.
In a statement Tuesday afternoon, the Dodgers admitted to being aware of the allegations of sex assault.
"The Dodgers became aware of Trevor Bauer's allegations late today and immediately contacted Major League Baseball. They will be handling the matter." "The Dodgers take allegations of this nature very seriously and will not have any further comments at this time," the team stated in a statement to Fox News.
