The postseason may be over for the Indians, but not for Trevor Bauer, apparently.
The Tribe and Bauer confirmed this afternoon that the All-Star pitcher will join MLB Network’s postgame coverage following Wednesdays NLCS and ALCS showdowns. In addition, Bauer will also be a part of the channel’s pregame coverage on Thursday.
Bauer himself announced his analyst debut with a video on Twitter, saying he was looking forward to breaking down the games as well as “providing some jokes that are terrible.”
Of course, one of the teams involved is the Houston Astros, who have come under fire recently for allegations of sign stealing, including in their ALDS victory over the Indians. Bauer has never been shy in the past about his disdain for the Astros’ alleged tactics, and has been trolling the team on Twitter with their “NeverSettle hashtag.
Tonight’s NLCS game between the Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Dodgers begins at 5:09 p.m. eastern, followed by the Astros and Boston Red Sox in the ALCS at 8:39 p.m.
