Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer focused bouncing back in 2015
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/28/15) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer is ready to get back on the field in 2015. After posting a 5-8 record with a 4.18 ERA in 26 starts last year, Bauer is starting to throw earlier than he usually does, reports MLB.com.
"This is the first time I've finished a year in the big leagues, so I had a month extra of season," Bauer said. "So that's one less month of the offseason. I'm used to targeting about the middle of February to be ready to go in games, so when I come to spring training I'm at peak level to try to make the team. That was really tough to do this offseason, just because I couldn't start throwing until Nov. 1."
Manager Terry Francona is not worried about his pitcher's focus for the upcoming season.
"Regardless of what you tell him, I think he has his own things that drive him every time he goes out," Francona said. "There's maybe a different purpose every time, but there's something he's trying to strive for. I don't think he really picks up a ball very often without a goal. Sometimes, I know he even charts it, just because it keeps him motivated to do the things he's aiming for."
Indians SP Trevor Bauer set to make $1.94 million in 2015
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/17/15) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer is set to make $1.94 million in 2015, MLB.com reports. His salary is determined solely by the Indians until he acquires three seasons of service time. Bauer won't be eligible for arbitration until after the 2016 season.
Bauer, 24, was once a top prospect in the Diamondbacks farm system before the Indians acquired him in a trade in 2013. The right-hander made 26 starts and finished second on the team with 153 innings pitched. He finished 5-8 with a 4.18 ERA, a 1.38 WHIP and 143:60 K:BB ratio over 26 starts.
Manager: Trevor Bauer must listen to pitching coach in offseason
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/25/14) Terry Francona has a request for inconsistent Indians right-hander Trevor Bauer heading into the offseason: Listen to and learn from pitching coach Mickey Callaway.
Bauer completed a mediocre year Wednesday night by losing it in the fourth inning and blowing a 3-0 lead to Kansas City. He finishes with a 5-8 record, 4.18 ERA and just one quality start in his last five outings.
"I thought there was a ton of development," Francona told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "I think there's a lot left in the tank. I don't think we've even come close to what he can be. He's a pretty thoughtful kid ... He's going to be very cognizant and aware of everything he wants to do (during the offseason). I just hope that he allows Mickey to really ... Mickey is so conscious of wanting to help so bad."
Francona criticized Bauer earlier in the year for his pitch selection in the first inning, when he consistently struggled. The manager did not like the often-stubborn Bauer's philosophy of testing out a wide array of pitches to start the game in an attempt to figure out which was working best. Francona told the media that Bauer should establish two or three pitches in the first inning before expanding his repertoire. Bauer began performing better in the first inning thereafter.
Trevor Bauer run into trouble in the fifth
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/24/14) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer had some trouble during his Wednesday start against the Royals.
Bauer allowed four runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings. He struck out two and walked three during the outing. Bauer performed well early, getting through the first three innings unscathed. He ran into trouble in the fourth. With a runner on second, Billy Butler managed an RBI single to left. The fifth inning would prove to be worse. After two singles, Bauer gave up a run-scoring hit against Eric Hosmer. Butler then doubled, bringing in two additional runs. Bauer intentionally walked the next hitter, and was pulled from the game.
Bauer received a no-decision for his efforts.
|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.
