Indians shuffle rotation for weekend series against Rangers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) The Indians have altered their rotation for the weekend series against visiting Texas. The trade of Justin Masterson, who was slated to pitch Friday, has pushed Danny Salazar into the role that night.

Following Salazar to the mound will be left-hander T.J. House on Saturday and Trevor Bauer on Sunday. House had been sent down to Triple-A Columbus last week after managing just three quality starts in nine outings and compiling a 4.50 ERA.


Trevor Bauer rocked in loss vs. Mariners Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer was stuck with a loss Tuesday, giving up five earned runs on eight hits and one walk in 4 1/3 innings and striking out three in his team's 5-2 defeat against the Mariners.

Bauer (4-6) gave up three doubles in the fourth inning that drove home a total of four runs before serving up a solo home run in the fifth. He had turned in four straight quality starts before Tuesday's loss. Bauer owns a 4.25 ERA and 85:31 K:BB ratio in 89 innings. He's scheduled to face the Rangers Sunday.


Non-support dooms Trevor Bauer to defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) A lack of run support continued to plague Indians rookie Trevor Bauer on Wednesday afternoon in Minnesota.

Bauer wasn't lights-out, but he did manage to twirl his fifth quality start in his last six outings and give up three runs or less in his sixth straight. But he took the loss as the Indians provided him with just one run.

The right-hander yielded three earned runs on six hits, including a solo home run off the bat of Oswaldo Arcia. He walked two and fanned seven.

Bauer, whose record fell to 4-5, will try to even it up next Tuesday against visiting Seattle.


Trevor Bauer climbs back to .500 Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/18/2014) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer (4-4) put together a quality start in a win over the Tigers in Detroit on Friday. Making his first start after the All-Star break, the right-hander permitted three runs on six hits and one walk while striking out five over six innings of a 9-3 win.

Bauer has not dropped a decision since June 27 against Seattle. Over his last three starts covering 19 2/3 innings, Bauer has allowed only five earned runs. He owns a 3.89 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP over 13 starts (78 2/3 innings). His next start will come Wednesday at Minnesota.

Trevor Bauer shows why he's worth pursuing


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(7/14/2014) With a 4.42 ERA and 1.46 WHIP through his first 10 starts, it would have been hard not to call Trevor Bauer a disappointment. Even with those underwhelming results, there were some good signs, including improved control and an above-average strikeout rate. Bauer is still just 23, and he has some good minor league seasons in his past, so those positive signs are worth paying attention to. Better yet, he has started to turn his season around in his last two outings.

In Bauer's start against the White Sox on Sunday, we saw some evidence of why it's too early to give up on him for this season. He struck out 10 batters in 6 2/3 scoreless innings for the Indians, while throwing a respectable 63 percent of his pitches for strikes. Most impressive were the 18 swinging strikes he induced. Yes, the White Sox are strikeout-prone, but they're not as extreme of a free-swinging lineup as the Braves or as contact-challenged as the Astros. It was simply a dominant performance against a team that can hit for power and score runs.

I made the case for Bauer and four other starting pitchers as buy-low candidates in my most recent column, and I've offered five sell-high candidates to consider as well. As far as Bauer is concerned, he may have made it a little harder to swing a buy-low deal with his latest start, but he is still worth targeting during your All-Star break trade talks.


Trevor Bauer fans 10 in no-decision


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer struck out a career-high 10 batters over 6 2/3 scoreless innings Sunday but received a no-decision against the White Sox. Bauer scattered eight hits and three walks while lowering his ERA to 3.84.

Bauer heads into the All-Star break off two strong starts. He's scheduled to start Friday at Detroit.


Trevor Bauer strikes out six in win vs. Yankees Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer picked up a win Tuesday, giving up three runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks in seven innings while striking out six in his team's 5-3 victory over the Yankees.

Bauer (3-4) gave up a run on a single in the first inning and watched another score on a throwing error to put him down 2-0 after the top of the first. He buckled down and turned in a fine effort after the early hiccup, surrending his only other run on a groundout in the second inning. Bauer owns a 4.23 ERA and 60:24 K:BB ratio in 66 innings. He'll get one more pre-break start Sunday against the White Sox.


Bad still outweighs the good for Trevor Bauer


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/3/2014) Trevor Bauer has always had good stuff. He earned his ticket back to the big leagues (and along with it, the enthusiasm of Fantasy analysts like me) because he stopped walking everybody in sight at Triple-A Columbus.

That's a pretty low bar, though, and with 3.4 walks per nine innings in 10 starts, Bauer hasn't cleared it by much. To survive that kind of walk rate at the highest level, a pitcher needs to be so overpowering with his strikes that those walks never come home to roost. And quite frankly, Bauer isn't.

His stuff has still looked good -- he's gotten his fastball up to 98 mph at times -- but for whatever reason, it's not fooling anyone. Or at least not often enough. Though his 8.2 strikeouts per nine innings are certainly respectable, Bauer's 9.8 hits per nine innings aren't just a case of bad luck. His line-drive rate of 26.3 percent would rank second to Edwin Jackson if he had enough innings to qualify.

As a result, I've dropped him to 70th in my starting pitcher rankings. That's hardly drop-him-across-the-board territory, and I'd actually argue that his current ownership rate of 58 percent is too low. But I can't deny that owning him isn't the priority it used to be.


Late struggles cost Trevor Bauer chance for a win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer fell just short of a quality start Wednesday, as he settled for a no-decision in a 5-4 win over the Dodgers.

Bauer pitched into the sixth inning, but exited the game in line for a loss, before the offense bailed him out. He was charged with three runs in 5 2/3 innings, the first time he has failed to finish the sixth in his last four starts. Bauer allowed six hits and two walks, while striking out two batters on 102 pitches in the no-decision.

Bauer remains 2-4 on the season after the no-decision, while his ERA rose slightly to 4.42. He is winless in his last three starts, and will try to get back on track in his next start, set for Tuesday against the Yankees. 


Trevor Bauer settles for tough-luck loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer pitched well into the seventh inning Friday, but still came out on the wrong side in a 3-2 loss to the Mariners.

Bauer scattered nine hits in 6 1/3 innings of work, allowing three runs, including one on a solo home run in the seventh that ended his outing. He walked two batters and struck out five on 111 pitches in the loss.

Bauer dropped to 2-4 on the season, though his ERA also fell to 4.39. His next start is scheduled for Wednesday against the Dodgers. 


Long ball proves costly for Trevor Bauer


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Indians starter Trevor Bauer was stung by the long ball Saturday, in a 5-4 loss to the Tigers.

Bauer actually settled for a no-decision in the start, but it took a late rally by the offense to get him off the hook for the loss. Bauer pitched into the seventh inning, allowing four runs in 6 1/3 innings of work, three of which came on solo home runs. He gave up eight hits and a pair of walks, while striking out five batters on 102 pitches.

Bauer remains 2-3 on the season after Saturday's no-decision, while his ERA rose to 4.40. He will look to even his record when he takes on the Mariners Friday.


Trevor Bauer strikes out six in win Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2014) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer earned a win Monday, surrendering three earned runs on eight hits and four walks in 6 2/3 innings while striking out six in his team's 4-3 victory over the Angels.

Bauer (2-3) was pulled with a lead after throwing 119 pitches, a season high. It was just his second quality start in his last five outings. Bauer owns a 4.20 ERA and 42:16 K:BB ratio in 40 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Tigers Saturday.


Trevor Bauer suffers third loss vs. Royals


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2014) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer failed to finish the sixth inning for the second time in four starts Wednesday, in a 4-1 loss to the Royals.

Bauer pitched into the sixth inning, but was chased after recording the first out of the frame. He was charged with three runs on seven hits and a walk in 5 1/3 innings of work, and he struck out just one batter on 93 pitches in the loss.

Bauer's record fell to 1-3, and he has not won since his first start after his recall. He carries a 4.24 ERA into his next outing, set for Monday against the Angels. 


Trevor Bauer not at his best in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer was not at his best on Friday against the Rangers, but managed to escape his outing with a no-decision. The right-hander yielded four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six in 6 1/3 innings of a 6-4 defeat.

Bauer has allowed four earned runs in two of his last three starts. He owns a 4.08 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP in through five starts (28 2/3 innings). He will make his next start Wednesday at Kansas City.

Trevor Bauer pitched through illness Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2014) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer pitched through an illness Saturday, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

Bauer had been dealing with flu-like symptoms in the days leading up to the start, though he admitted he started to feel better Saturday. Despite the issue, Bauer appeared fine during his start. He performed well too, holding the Rockies to two runs over six innings. 

Bauer's next start is set to come against the Rangers.


Trevor Bauer Ks eight in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) Indians starter Trevor Bauer got back on track with a quality start Saturday afternoon against the Rockies, limiting hitters to two runs on four hits in six innings of a no-decision.

Bauer struck out eight and walked one in 100 pitches, 70 for strikes. Over his last two starts covering 10 1/3 innings, Bauer has allowed six earned runs. He owns a 3.63 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP through his first four starts (22 1/3 innings).

Following the 7-6 win, Bauer will look to keep it going Friday at Texas.

Trevor Bauer hurt by long ball


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2014) Indians starter Trevor Bauer gave up a pair of fifth-inning homers and got chased from Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Orioles. Bauer struck out eight but yielded homers to Manny Machado and Nelson Cruz in falling to 1-2.

He was tagged with four earned runs on six hits in 4 1/3 innings. Bauer is scheduled to face the Rockies on Saturday.


Trevor Bauer gives up two runs in win vs. Tigers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer enjoyed a successful return to the majors Tuesday, giving up just two earned runs on seven hits and three walks in six-plus innings while striking out five to earn a win in his team's 6-2 victory over the Tigers.

Bauer (1-1) surrendered solo home runs in the first and fifth innings but otherwise strung together a strong performance after getting called up earlier in the day. He owns a 2.25 ERA and 13:5 K:BB ratio in 12 innings over two starts with the Indians. Bauer is slated to take on the Orioles Sunday.


Indians call up Trevor Bauer, Justin Sellers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) The Indians promoted pitcher Trevor Bauer and shortstop Justin Sellers from Triple-A Columbus, reports MLB.com. Bauer started once for Cleveland this season, allowing one earned run over six innings April 9 versus the Padres.

You've picked up Trevor Bauer...now what?


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(5/19/2014) Prior to this weekend, Scott White advised Fantasy owners in this space to pick up Trevor Bauer before his upcoming two-start week for the Indians, rather than take a wait-and-see approach. Many owners did just that, and Bauer has now been added to more than one-fifth of the leagues on CBSSports.com over the past week.

In this week's edition of Fantasy First Pitch, I argued that Bauer should be started in standard mixed leagues, though I stopped short of calling him an must-start for all formats. Whether or not he will be safe to start when he has only one start in Fantasy Week 9 (May 26-June 1) will depend on how he fares against the Tigers and Orioles this week, but given how he has performed at Triple-A Columbus this season, there's a good chance you can keep him active beyond this week.

For the first time in his minor league career, Bauer was posting a BB/9 ratio below 4.0 on the season, and with a 2.7 mark, he has shown more than incremental progress. Even with a strikeout rate (8.6 K/9) that is lower than those he registered as a prospect with the Diamondbacks, he should still avoid enough contact to be effective, as long as he maintains decent control.

It remains to be seen if Bauer will carry this progress to the majors (though he appeared to do just that in a spot start earlier this season against the Padres), and there's also the possibility that his strikeout rate rebounds, fueling further improvement. Even if the latter doesn't happen, all indications suggest that he will be a pitcher you can start most weeks in standard mixed leagues.


Don't wait to pick up Trevor Bauer


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/16/2014) Given all the times he's flopped in the majors already, you might be to tempted to wait and see how Trevor Bauer performs in his first start in place of Danny Salazar Tuesday before picking him up.

But by then, it may be too late, and as good as Bauer could be, you may regret it the rest of your life.

OK, so that's being dramatic, but for a player with Bauer's upside -- particularly one who seems to have cured what ailed him in the past -- you have to leap before you look. It's not so inconceivable he could be must-start the rest of the way, the answer to every Jose Fernandez owner's prayers.

Let's not forget he was the third overall pick in the 2011 draft and the most buzz-worthy pitching prospect just two years ago. Because of injuries and incessant tinkering, he became a mechanical wreck who couldn't find the strike zone. But he worked to correct it in the offseason, and in eight starts -- including one already in the majors -- he has issued just 16 walks.

Maybe he bombs again and gets sent right back down, but the chance he doesn't is worth sacrificing your worst player, provided he's something less than a top-70 starting pitcher.


Manager: Trevor Bauer set to start Tuesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) Terry Francona has wasted no time announcing that Trevor Bauer will replace demoted starter Danny Salazar in the starting rotation. Bauer will be promoted to the Indians from Triple-A Columbus in time to start Tuesday against Tigers stud Justin Verlander in Cleveland.

Trevor Bauer likely destined to join Cleveland rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) The Indians did not call up right-hander Trevor Bauer from Triple-A Buffalo when they sent down fellow starter Danny Salazar on Friday. But one can assume the promotion is coming. Bauer will probably start in Salazar's place against Justin Verlander and the visiting Tigers on Tuesday.

Bauer is coming off his first poor outing of the season. He yielded six earned runs on nine hits in 5 2/3 innings against Rochester, but had given up just five runs in 40 1/3 innings previously. Bauer competed for a starting spot in spring training, but proved inconsistent and lost out to Carlos Carrasco.


Trevor Bauer still hot and still waiting in vain for promotion


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2014) Indians premier pitching prospect Trevor Bauer continued to roll Thursday at Triple-A Columbus, but might be no closer to joining the big league team.

Bauer yielded one run on three hits in 7 1/3 innings and fanned nine for the third time this season. He owns a sparkling 1.13 ERA, but the success of Josh Tomlin in his first start with Cleveland this week leaves Bauer with no rotation openings.

Each Indians starter has been performing well lately.


Trevor Bauer still worth stashing


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/5/2014) With Trevor Bauer pitching seven innings for Triple-A Columbus Saturday, the Indians locked in their decision to bring up Josh Tomlin to take Carlos Carrasco's place in the starting rotation Tuesday. Like it or not, it's happening, and considering general manager Chris Antonetti said Friday that whoever got Tuesday's start would get another, it's not just a matter of the Indians working to get Bauer's next start in line.

But that doesn't mean you should drop him in Fantasy. Frankly, he was worth stashing even before the Indians removed Carrasco from the rotation. He's still the one big-time pitching prospect -- and yes, he most certainly qualifies -- with the easiest path to the big leagues, whether because Tomlin flops or Danny Salazar continues to struggle.

And while Bauer himself has flopped in multiple chances, he has shown definite improvement this season after working to fix his mechanics this offseason. With another strong showing Saturday, he's now at 11 walks in six starts between the majors and minors. He has a 1.10 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 8.5 strikeouts per nine innings in five starts at Columbus.
