Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer took to Twitter Monday to rail against banning the shift and troll on the Houston Astros.
It’s believed one of the new rules being implemented in a new collective bargaining agreement between Major League Baseball owners and players union will be to ban the shift. While hitters can find the shift frustrating, pitchers and a team’s defense love the strategic aspect of the shift.
Trevor Bauer hopped on Twitter to voice his displeasure at the prospects of banning the shift and more.
With a hefty amount of sarcasm, Bauer began making other suggestions on what new rules the MLB can change.
Then Bauer suggested a rule that may help him finally get Fernando Tatis, Jr., out.
Bauer had fun with fans responding with more rule change ideas.
And then Bauer took a dig at the Houston Astros.
Trevor Bauer hates idea of MLB shift ban
Bauer had good fun with fans while stirring the drama of ongoing negotiations between the owners and players union. Once that new agreement is reached, things will certainly get more interesting. Especially for Bauer.
He has been on paid administrative leave from the Dodgers since July 2, 2021, after allegations of sexual assault involving a San Diego woman came to light. While no criminal charges were filed by prosecutors against Bauer due to insufficient evidence, MLB is still investigating the matter that involved him hitting and choking the woman during two sexual encounters at his home. MLB could suspend Bauer over the matter. The league’s investigation into Bauer has stalled due to the lockout between the owners and players association.

With Bauer’s future with the Dodgers and the league in flux, hopefully, he is doing all he can to be prepared for whatever is next for him. Be it with the Dodgers or elsewhere.
