Trevor Bauer of the Los Angeles Dodgers has just been accused of sexual assault. A woman referred to as “Ms. Hill” has obtained a restraining order against the MLB star pitcher. Marc Garelick, an attorney for the woman, told TMZ that the order was granted in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The Pasadena Police Department is looking into the allegation. MLB is also aware of the accusations and is looking into the investigation.
“We anticipate there will be criminal action against Mr. Bauer, and it is our hope law enforcement will take our client’s allegations and case seriously,” Garelick told the TMZ.
“The Dodgers were made aware of the allegations against Trevor Bauer late this afternoon and immediately contacted Major League Baseball, which will be handling this matter,” the team said in a statement. “The Dodgers take any allegations of this nature very seriously, but will have no further comment at this time.”
Trevor Bauer, 30, is a 10-year veteran of Major League Baseball, he pitched for the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Cleveland Indians and the Cincinnati Reds before joining the Dodgers in 2021. He signed with the Dodgers in February with a $102 million deal. Bauer denies the allegations, according to a statement from his agent, Jon Fetterolf.
“Mr. Bauer had a brief and wholly consensual sexual relationship initiated by Ms. Hill beginning in April 2021,” Fetterolf said, adding, “Mr. Bauer and Ms. Hill have not corresponded in over a month and have not seen each other in over six weeks. Her basis for filing a protection order is nonexistent, fraudulent, and deliberately omits key facts.”
Fetterolf concludes his statement by announcing that “any allegations that the pair’s encounters were not 100 percent consensual are baseless, defamatory, and will be refuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
Although no charges have been filed, just a restraining order. Garelick, Ms. Hill’s attorney, said that “the order is a result of a recent assault that took place at the hands of Mr. Bauer where Ms. Hill suffered severe physical and emotional pain,” adding, “our goal is to keep Mr. Bauer from contacting our client in any way possible.”
Ms. Hill was treated for a concussion. According to Fetterolf, the woman “was neither angry nor accusatory” when letting Bauer know of her injuries and medical treatment.
The statement made by Treavor’s agent was posted to Twitter by ESPN reporter Jeff Passan. The agent claims to have messages showing the woman asked for rough sex, including asking to be “choked out” and slapped in the face. The statement says that “in both of their encounters, Ms. Hill drove from San Diego to Mr. Bauer’s residence in Pasadena, Calif. where she went on to dictate what she wanted from him sexually and he did what was asked. Following each of her only two meetings with Mr. Bauer, Ms. Hill spent the night and left without incident, continuing to message Mr. Bauer with friendly and flirtatious banter.”
Lt. Bill Grisafe of the Pasadena Police department said that this “is an active investigation.”
