Indians' Trevor Bauer rocked in no-decision vs. Blue Jays


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer wasn't a factor in the decision Sunday despite allowing six earned runs on seven hits and three walks in 4 1/3 innings while striking out one in his team's 10-7 win over the Blue Jays.

Bauer did a fine job in the first three innings, but it all came apart in the fourth, when two runs crossed the plate before Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis swatted a grand slam to give his team a big lead. Bauer was able to get out of the inning but was pulled in the fifth after surrendering his second hit of the frame with one out. The Indians were able to battle back with six runs in the fifth inning to take the starter of the hook.

The dud was the first nonquality start of the season for Bauer, who owns a 3.38 ERA and 29:16 K:BB ratio in 29 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Twins at home Friday.


Francona weighs in on claim of Indians RHP Trevor Bauer


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2015) The Indians have been sickly as a team pretty much all season, but it was sickly starter Trevor Bauer who earned praise Wednesday from Terry Francona.

Bauer contracted food poisoning last weekend in Detroit that had him claiming he was at 30 percent on the mound Tuesday night against Kansas City. He added his surprise that he didn't pass out, but he still managed to battle through six innings, giving up three runs.

"I will say in our game, when you're sick, posting is a big deal in our game," Francona told the Northeast Ohio Media Group. "I'm not talking about pitching with an arm that is going to fall off. Sometimes you have to throw up. We've all seen it."

As for Bauer's claim that he was only at 30 percent? Francona believes that's a bit of a stretch.

"I don't think he was at 30 percent," he said. "I know he's a smart kid but that's probably a little bit of a (reach). Thirty percent. I'd probably be dead."


Indians starter Trevor Bauer throws six solid innings for no-decision


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/28/2015) Indians starter Trevor Bauer surrendered three runs on seven hits in six innings of work to take a no-decision Tuesday against the Royals.

Alex Gordon connected for a solo homer off Bauer in the second inning and then allowed an RBI single to Omar Infante in the fourth.

"Something has to change real soon," said Bauer, who had missed his scheduled start on Saturday because of food poisoning.

Bauer's next start is scheduled for Sunday against the Blue Jays.


Indians' Trevor Bauer (illness) cleared to start Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer has been cleared to start Tuesday against the Royals, MLB.com reports.

"He'll pitch [Tuesday]," Indians manager Terry Francona said, per MLB.com. "He's good. He came in early today, because if something wasn't going the right direction, we wanted to make sure we were able to have a heads up, because that would entail a roster move. But he's good to go. So that was good news."

Bauer was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday due to food poisoning but will be able to take the mound a few days later. He is 2-0 with a 0.95 ERA and 26:11 K:BB ratio in 19 innings over his first three starts while allowing just eight hits.


Indians' Trevor Bauer to try to throw on Sunday, Tuesday start unsure


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Indians' starter Trevor Bauer will try to play catch on Sunday. Bauer was scratched from Saturday's start with an illness. Right now, he's slotted to start on Tuesday, filling in for T.J. House, who started in Bauer's place on Saturday. 

Manager Terry Francona said the team wasn't sure if Tuesday's start was in jeopardy, per MLB.com.


Indians' Trevor Bauer (illness) penciled in to start Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Indians pticher Trevor Bauer (illness) is listed as the probable starter for Tuesday's matchup with the Royals.

Bauer had to be scratched from Saturday's scheduled start against the Tigers at the last minute due to food poisoning. He'll look to put a cap on his excellent April in a home start Tuesday. Bauer is 2-0 with a 0.95 ERA and 26:11 K:BB ratio in 19 innings.


T.J. House takes loss on short rest for Indians


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Indians LHP T.J. House found out he was pitching shortly before game time. Thrust into the starting lineup when Trevor Bauer was scratched due to illness. 

"Obviously, this was a last-minute thing," House said to MLB.com. "Today, I came in and didn't think I was going to be out there at all."

House gave up four hits and four walks, allowing three runs over three innings, falling to 0-3, 12.60 for the year. House threw 37 strikes in 69 pitches. 

"I still think he's trying to find his rhythm," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "When he's going good, he works ahead, he stays down and as he gets into the flow of the game, you start to see him get under some bats. He's working from behind and he's having a tough time climbing back into counts, because he's just not quite throwing it where he wants to yet."

Cleveland isn't sure how Bauer's scratch will impact the rotation. Assuming House goes back to his old spot, his next scheduled start would be Sunday, May 3. 


Trevor Bauer a last-minute scratch for Indians, T.J. House gets start


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer was a last-minute scratch for Saturday's start against Detroit. 

Bauer is battling an illness and, after doing pre-game long toss, informed the staff that he wouldn't be able to start. 

LHP T.J. House gets the start. 


Indians' Trevor Bauer goes seven scoreless, has win blown by bullpen


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/20/2015) Indians starter Trevor Bauer threw seven scoreless innings on Monday against the White Sox and was in line to get the win but the bullpen surrendered four runs in the ninth to blow the game, leaving Bauer with a no-decision.

Bauer scattered four hits and struck out seven and missed out on being 3-0. He has allowed just two runs in 19 innings this season and lowered his ERA to 0.95.

"They've been so different,'' Bauer said of one start against the Astros and back-to-back ones against the White Sox, per MLB.com. "The first one, I felt like I had really good stuff, and I walked a lot of guys. The next one, I didn't feel like I had very good stuff and managed my way through it. I felt decent today. I can be a lot better than I have been. I need to get ahead more. My first-pitch strike percentage is really low.''

Bauer's next start is scheduled for Saturday in Detroit.


Carlos Carrasco, Trevor Bauer trading spots in Indians' rotation


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) The Indians are shuffling places in their starting rotation. Carlos Carrasco and Trevor Bauer will swap places, per MLB.com

Bauer is now going to start on Monday and Carrasco will get the ball for Tuesday's game. 


Indians' Trevor Bauer adjusting body language on mound this season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) 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
(4/15/2015) 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
(4/9/2015) 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
(4/4/2015) 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
(4/1/2015) 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.


Indians' Trevor Bauer strikes out seven vs. White Sox Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer allowed one earned run on four hits and one walk in 6 1/3 innings while striking out seven in his team's 4-1 win over the White Sox Monday.

Bauer's only damage came in the third inning when he served up a home run to White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers. He has posted a 4.57 ERA and 18:1 K:BB ratio in 21 2/3 innings this spring and is set to open the season in the rotation.


Indians' Trevor Bauer throws 95 pitches in 'B' game Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer threw 95 pitches in six innings in a minor-league game Wednesday, with his fastball sitting around 94-to-95 mph, MLB.com reports.

"I thought his stuff was good," pitching coach Mickey Callaway said. "He was working on trying to bounce his breaking ball today. Early, he wasn't able to get it quite in the dirt, but then later on he got it down where he wanted to. He probably bounced a couple short and then got some to where he wanted to."

Bauer is expected to open the season as the team's No. 3 starter.

"He's going to be about ready for opening week, which I think is pretty mature on his part," manager Terry Francona said. "I think he's done a pretty good job of trying each start to ramp up closer to what he's going to do in the regular season."


Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer effective over five innings Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2015) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer threw five strong innings Sunday, allowing two runs on four hits with four strikeouts and no walks. 50 of Bauer's 68 pitches were for strikes and that's what he wants to focus on for the remainder of camp, reports MLB.com.

"That's been my only goal my first three outings, is just throw strikes," Bauer explained. "Fill up the zone, first-pitch strikes and then I'm basically playing a little game with myself, seeing how quickly I can get to two strikes. Then, when I get there, [I'm] working on the two-seam and split."

Manager Terry Francona liked to see Bauer extend over five innings Sunday.

"He was pretty good, man," Francona said. "He continues to pound the zone. He's trying to work ahead and he's using his fastball. I think there's some instances where he could go to a breaking ball and get a strikeout, but knowing it's Spring Training, he's pounding his fastball. It's pretty impressive."


Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer focused bouncing back in 2015


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) 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
(1/17/2015) 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.


Four of the five spots in Indians' rotation already decided


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said Tuesday that Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, Trevor Bauer and Gavin Floyd have secured spots in the rotation for 2015.

He added Zach McAllister, Josh Tomlin, Danny Salazar and T.J. House will be competing for the final spot in the rotation this spring.


Manager: Trevor Bauer must listen to pitching coach in offseason


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2014) 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
(9/24/2014) 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


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) 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.

by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
