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


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7:09 pm ET) 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. 


Trevor Bauer effective in five-inning stint


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Indians starter Trevor Bauer was pulled after an effective five innings Sunday against the Tigers. Bauer allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits. He struck out three, walked one and allowed a fourth-inning solo homer to J.D. Martinez.

Bauer did not figure in the decision. Sporting a 4.04 ERA, he'll face the Twins on the road Friday.


Trevor Bauer lasts eight innings in loss vs. Twins


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) 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.


Trevor Bauer unable to factor into decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer was not at his best in a no-decision Thursday night at home against Detroit. He allowed four runs on six hits and four walks while striking out four over 5 2/3 innings of work.

Bauer owns a 4.10 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP over 22 starts (129 2/3 innings). His next start will come Tuesday at home against Minnesota.

Trevor Bauer unable to factor into decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2014) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer wasn't a factor into the decision Saturday night against the Royals. He allowed four hits and five walks while striking out six over 5 2/3 scoreless innings of work.

Bauer has not allowed a run in each of his last two starts (11 2/3 innings). He owns a 3.99 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP over 21 starts (124 innings). His next start will come Thursday at home against Detroit.

Trevor Bauer strikes out nine in win vs. Astros


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer earned a win Sunday, giving up just four hits and three walks in six scoreless innings while striking out nine in his team's 3-1 victory over the Astros.

Bauer (5-7) hadn't surrendered fewer than two earned runs in a start in the second half before putting together a gem Sunday to pick up his first win since July 18. He owns a 4.18 ERA and 114:46 K:BB ratio in 118 1/3 innings. Bauer is scheduled to face the Royals Saturday.


Trevor Bauer sunk by poor first inning


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer had a tough first inning Tuesday against the Twins. 

It was a horrific inning for Bauer. To open the frame, he allowed a leadoff double to Danny Santana. Bauer then walked the second hitter. A Joe Mauer single would bring one run home, and a Kenny Vargas single would plate another run. A mound visit did nothing to solve Bauer's woes. Oswaldo Arcia clubbed a three-run homer against Bauer in the next at-bat, making the score 5-0. Bauer would settle in to throw 4 2/3 innings, but the damage had already been done. He allowed five runs on four hits during the outing. Bauer struck out four and walked two.

The Indians were able to battle back, giving Bauer a no-decision. He'll take on the Astros in his next start. 


Trevor Bauer has defining start


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/14/2014) That's what I've been waiting to see from Trevor Bauer -- basically since the Diamondbacks first called him up in 2012.

Sure, he's had big strikeout games before. He struck out 10 against the White Sox July 13. But he also allowed 11 baserunners in that game -- eight on hits and three on walks. Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, he dominated beyond just the strikeouts.

He kept the walks down while also keeping the hits down -- a combination that has eluded him throughout the major-league portion of his career. How exactly he did it isn't so easy to tell from just one start, but it's a step in the right direction for a pitcher who has the stuff to do that sort of thing every time out.

Of course, it did come against the Diamondbacks, who have what some would describe as a "Triple-A lineup" with Paul Goldschmidt down (i.e., it's not so good), but they did score 14 runs in a Jorge De La Rosa start just four days earlier. They are still capable of hitting when a pitcher gives them something to hit.

Bauer didn't Wednesday, and that's reason enough for me to give him another look in standard mixed leagues if I passed him up earlier. I'd prioritize Jimmy Nelson and Mike Fiers over him, but he should be owned in more than 61 percent of leagues.


Trevor Bauer turns in excellent start against former team


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer turned in a fantastic start against his former team Wednesday.

Bauer allowed two runs on four hits over eight innings of work. He struck out nine and walked two. Bauer was sensational early on. While he lost his bid for a perfect game on a second inning walk, Bauer had a no-hitter until the sixth. Things started to get away from him a bit during the inning, but he was able to work a double-play to keep the damage low. The Diamondbacks struck again in the seventh, tying the game. Bauer would get through another scoreless inning before being pulled.

Because Bauer left with the game tied, he received a no-decision for his efforts. He'll take on the Twins in his next start.


Diamondbacks-Indians postponed Tuesday, DH Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) Tuesday's game between the Indians and Diamondbacks was postponed due to a lengthy rain delay that interrupted the fourth inning.

The teams are set to play a traditional doubleheader Wednesday as a result of the postponement. Trevor Bauer will face Andrew Chafin in Game 1, per announcement by the two teams, while Josh Tomlin will battle Vidal Nuno in Game 2.

Josh Collmenter and T.J. House had their starts wiped out Tuesday with the Indians up 1-0 in the fourth.


Trevor Bauer chased in fourth inning of loss vs. Yankees


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer picked up a loss Friday, giving up five earned runs on six hits and four walks in 3 1/3 innings and striking out three in his team's 10-6 defeat against the Yankees.

Bauer (4-7) gave up all five runs in an ugly first inning. He worked a 1-2-3 second inning before putting two guys on in the third and another two on in the fourth before being removed with just one out in the inning. Bauer owns a 4.52 ERA and 92:39 K:BB ratio in 99 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Diamondbacks Wednesday.


Trevor Bauer trying to work on avoiding slow starts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2014) Indians starting pitcher Trevor Bauer has a propensity of getting off to a sluggish start every time it is his turn to take the hill. And it's not something you have to remind the right-handed pitcher about.

"I've literally tried everything over the years," Bauer said, per Cleveland.com. "High school, college, pro ball it's always how it is for me. So if you guys have any suggestions, let me know. It's not for lack of trying. For whatever, the game is different. Being in the game situation, it takes me a little bit to settle in. It's weird. I wish I could fix it."

Opposing batters are hitting .289 off Bauer the first time through the lineup and .294 the second time before the average drops to .242 on the third plate appearance. He owns a 4.33 ERA through the first 75 pitches of each of his 16 outings and a 3.90 ERA after 75 pitches.

"It's been something he's tinkered with," manager Terry Francona said. "That's the way with a lot of good pitchers. If you don't get to them early, sometimes you don't have a chance. They settle in and they get a good feel for their pitches. With Trevor, it's not just that, but his velocity actually climbs. He's more aggressive and more confident in what he's throwing. Now that we know him a little bit, we're not so quick to take him out of the game, because you might lose out on his best pitches."


Trevor Bauer posts quality start vs. Rangers Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2014) Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer didn't factor into Sunday's decision after giving up three earned runs on six hits and four walks in 7 1/3 innings and striking out four in his team's 4-3, 12-inning win over the Rangers.

Bauer gave up three runs in the first two innings, with two coming on sacrifice flies in the second, but he settled down later on and saw his offense tie the game in the bottom of the ninth. He owns a 4.20 ERA and 89:35 K:BB ratio in 96 1/3 innings. Bauer is slated to face the Yankees Friday.


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.
