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.

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.
