Indians' Trevor Bauer adjusting body language on mound this season
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/16/15) Indians starter Trevor Bauer worked on improving body language on mound in the offseason, and it appears that it has started to pay off.
The 24-year-old right-hander started the year with nine no-hit innings before allowing a single to Jose Abreu of the White Sox to start the fourth on Wednesday. He is 2-0 with a 1.50 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP and 19:9 K:BB ratio over 12 innings.
"I'm trying to send the appropriate message with my body language," Bauer said, per MLB.com. "Not only to my teammates and to the opposing team, but also for me. I'm trying to stay locked into that approach mentally that whatever has happened is out of my control. Whatever is going to happen is out of my control. I can just make this next pitch and try to focus in on that. And I think I've done a decent job of it."
Bauer also said that he's hopeful that his new approach will keep him away from any trouble with umpires.
"It's very rare that I'm upset with an umpire," Bauer said. "It might appear that I am sometimes -- because I'm upset with myself -- in how I snap at a ball, or I'll kind of shake my head or whatever. That's more internal frustration with the fact that I didn't execute that pitch. But I'm aware that that can be construed differently by the umpires, so that's another positive to sending a correct message with my body language."
Indians starter Trevor Bauer earns second straight win
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/15/15) Indians emerging right-hander Trevor Bauer completed what amounts to a two-game no-hitter Wednesday afternoon, extending his hitless streak to nine innings before allowing a single to White Sox slugger Jose Abreu to start the fourth.
Bauer, who pitched six no-hit innings in his first start, hurled three more to raise his record to 2-0. He finished with two runs allowed on four hits and eight strikeouts in six innings. But he also walked four, giving him nine in 12 innings this year.
The analytical Bauer expressed a level of satisfaction with both the physical and mental aspects of his performance.
"I'm trying to send the appropriate message with my body language not only to my teammates and the opposition, but also for me I want to stay with the approach that whatever has happened is out of my control and whatever is going to happen is out of my control. All I can control is my next pitch. I think I've done a decent job of it. It's a work in progress."
Bauer will try to raise his mark to 3-0 when he battles the Sox again, this time in Chicago, next Tuesday.
Indians SP Trevor Bauer and company flirt with no-hitter
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/9/15) Indians starter Trevor Bauer flirted with a no-no on Thursday against the Astros, but still managed to pick up the win in his first start of the season.
Bauer (1-0) was pulled with a no-hitter after throwing 111 pitches through six innings. He struck out a career-high 11 and walked five. Kyle Crockett and Scott Atchison each pitched a scoreless inning, respectively before Jed Lowrie broke up a combined no-hit bid with a one-out solo home run in the ninth inning off Nick Hagadone.
Bauer will return to the mound Wednesday at home against the White Sox. He pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings last season against Chicago.
Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer strikes out eight in spring finale
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/4/15) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer went six innings Saturday against the Brewers, recording eight strikeout with three runs allowed. Manager Terry Francona liked how Bauer handled the spring finale, reports MLB.com.
"This was such an important start, and I thought he did fine," Francona said. "He gave up some hits, but his stuff looked so good. Watching him warm up in the sixth, he looked every bit as strong as he did in the first. I think he's situated to have a nice, growing year from where he was last year. Where he goes -- that'll be fun to see."
Bauer, who will be the team's No. 3 starter this season, finishes spring training with a 4.55 ERA and 26 strikeouts in six starts.
Indians line up rotation, Zach McAllister to pitch home opener
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/1/15) Indians manager Terry Francona has set the rotation for the first week of the season, with Zach McAllister slated to serve as the No. 4 starter and pitch the team's home opener next Friday against the Tigers, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Corey Kluber draws the Opening Day assignment Monday against the Astros after winning the AL Cy Young award in 2014. He'll be followed by Carlos Carrasco Tuesday and Trevor Bauer Wednesday. McAllister will then face the Tigers Friday, with T.J. House taking the mound Saturday and Kluber pitching Sunday.

|2014 summary: Trevor Bauer began the season in the minors, but the demotion of Danny Salazar provided him with a chance to join the Indians' rotation in May. Once there, he didn't relinquish his spot. No one will mistake Bauer for a control pitcher, but he tamped down his walk rate to a respectable level, particularly over his first 15 starts (including an early April spot start). During that period, Bauer walked 31 batters over 89 innings, but he reverted to old patterns over his final 11 starts, walking 29 batters in 64 innings. Though Bauer threw his fastball nearly 2 mph harder than he did in previous major league stints, it was the increased horizontal movement in his curveball that was instrumental in an 8.4 K/9 ratio. Bauer finished with a 5-8 record and 4.18 ERA.|
Playing time status: Though Bauer has his work cut out for him, he showed enough progress to likely merit a rotation spot to start the season. Barring regression or injury, he should be a mainstay as one of the Indians' starters.
2015 outlook: The makings of a breakout are there. If Bauer can get his control back on track while maintaining or improving on his 2014 strikeout rate, he could have some staying power in standard mixed leagues. That potential makes Bauer someone to consider in the later rounds.
