CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cleveland Indians’ pitcher Trevor Bauer is no stranger to controversy with his twitter presence, relationship guidelines and his nerd-like tactic to pitching in the big leagues that essentially would seem to be doing the job.
For a male who is not your prototypical big-league pitcher, Bauer has come a prolonged way since slicing a finger on his throwing hand with a drone propeller, in advance of a Entire world Collection start out in 2016.
In 2018 Bauer decreased his Era from 4.19 the year in advance of to 2.21 soon after concentrating on increasing his slider in the off-year. He could have won the Cy Young, if not for an harm that induced him to pass up the last month and-a-half of the common year.
This off-year Bauer targeted his scientific approach on increasing his alter-up.
If Bauer has managed to strengthen his alter-up as a lot as he formerly did his slider and he can keep away from drone accidents, there will be nothing halting him, on the mound or off.
