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

|(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.
Trevor Bauer turns in a quality start Friday

|(9/19/14) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer turned in a quality start Friday against the Twins.
Bauer allowed three runs on four hits over six innings. He struck out six and did not issue any walks during the outing. Home runs proved to be an issue for Bauer. Oswaldo Arcia took him deep to start the third inning, accounting for the first earned run. In the fourth, Kennys Vargas belted a solo shot as well. Bauer came out to start the seventh, but was pulled after giving up two singles. One run would score after he left the game. That run would be charged to Bauer.
The Twins managed a comeback, giving Bauer a no-decision. He’ll take on the Royals in his next start.

Trevor Bauer lasts eight innings in loss vs. Twins
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/9/14) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer took a loss Tuesday, allowing four earned runs on four hits and one walk in eight innings while striking out eight in his team's 4-3 defeat against the Twins.
Bauer (5-8) ran into trouble in a four-run fourth inning that included a two-run blast, but he pitched very well aside from the troublesome inning. He owns a 4.12 ERA and 132:56 K:BB ratio in 137 2/3 innings. Bauer is scheduled to face the Tigers Sunday.
|Between his two failed stints in the majors and escalating walk rate in the minors, the hype on Trevor Bauer has died down significantly -- and rightfully so. But just last year, Julio Teheran reminded everyone why talent of a certain level deserves the benefit of the doubt. He went from posting a 5.08 ERA and 1.44 WHIP at Triple-A Gwinnett, which nearly removed him from the top prospect discussion, to finishing fifth in NL Rookie of the Year voting. Granted, he doesn't have Bauer's stubborn streak, but just because he lost his way doesn't mean he lost his ability. Bauer was the third overall pick in the 2013 draft and has shown he can hit 96 with his fastball. He didn't last year, but by that point, he had tinkered so much with his mechanics that he didn't know which way was up. The UCLA product has spent his career to this point trying to reinvent the wheel, incorporating concepts like biomechanics and effective velocity into his delivery. It was a worthy venture, but a failed one, and he seems to be on board with that now, working with the coaching staff to regain his delivery this offseason. The Indians are encouraged enough by the results to give Bauer a shot at a rotation spot this spring, and if he wins it, the Teheran comparisons may continue.
