Trevor Bauer (32) will eventually head to the Japanese stage.
The Yokohama DeNA Baystars club announced on the 14th that it had agreed to a contract with Bauer for 400 million yen (approximately 3.9 billion won) for one year.
Bauer won the National League Cy Young Award in 2020 with the Cincinnati Reds, going 5-4 with a 1.73 ERA in 11 games.
After qualifying as a free agent, he signed a contract with the Dodgers for 3 years and 102 million dollars.
His conduct off the field ended his life as a major leaguer. She was accused of assaulting a woman she had sex with. Although it was not prosecuted due to insufficient evidence, two additional victims came out, and eventually the Major League Secretariat issued a 324-game suspension.
An appeal reduced him to 194 games, allowing him to return to the major leagues this season, but the Dodgers released Bauer. Other major league clubs also declared that they could not recruit.
Yokohama reached out to Bauer, who turned his eyes to the Japanese stage.
Bauer said, “I’m excited to be able to play for the Baystars this season. It’s been my dream to play in Nippon Professional Baseball. I don’t think there is a team better than the Baystars as a club that can show that dream in front of fans.” . 더블유 토토
He continued, “I’m glad I was given the opportunity to become part of a great team and aim for the championship together. I’m already looking forward to meeting the players and fans. I look forward to seeing you in Yokohama.”
