Restraining order against Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer remains in place for now following hearing

Local news

After a hearing on Friday, a judge has left in place the restraining order against Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer.

The order, put in place in connection with sexual assault allegations made against Bauer last month, was issued June 29 and will remain until at least next month. Friday’s hearing was recessed until 8:30 a.m. Aug. 2, with more court dates scheduled for Aug. 3 and 19.

Bauer is accused of choking a woman to the point of unconsciousness and hitting her in the face during a pair of sexual encounters earlier this year. According to a declaration made by the woman, she suffered injuries as a result of the second encounter, including two black eyes, a bloodied swollen lip, significant bruising and scratching to one side of her face.

Jon Fetterolf, Bauer’s co-agent, has disputed the allegations, saying the pitcher’s interactions with the woman were wholly consensual.

“Any allegations that the pair’s encounters were not 100% consensual are baseless, defamatory, and will be refuted to the fullest extent of the law,” Fetterolf said when the allegations were made in June.

A Pasadena police spokesman has confirmed that the department is looking into the accusations.

Bauer has been placed on administrative leave through July 27 by Major League Baseball and the players’ association as the sport conducts its investigation.

Bauer agreed to a $102 million, three-year contract to join the Dodgers earlier this year.
