On Friday, the MLB announced that it's suspending Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer for 324 games.

"Commissioner Robert D. Manfred Jr. announced today that following an extensive investigation by MLB's Department of Investigations, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer has received a suspension of 324 championship season games (representing two full seasons) without pay, effective today, for violating Major League Baseball's Join Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Policy," the MLB's statement read. "In accordance with the terms of the policy, the Commissioner's Office will not issue any further statements at this point in time."

Bauer was placed on administrative leave in July 2021 after allegations of sexual assault surfaced.

As things currently stand, Bauer would have to wait until 2024 to play for an MLB team.

Bauer has announced that he is appealing the MLB's decision.

"In the strongest possible terms, I deny committing any violation of the league's domestic violence and sexual assault policy. I am appealing this action and expect to prevail," Bauer tweeted. "As we have throughout this process, my representatives and I respect the confidentiality of the proceedings."

Bauer has not pitched since June 28, 2021. In 17 games with the Dodgers, the former Cy Young winner had an 8-5 record with a 2.59 ERA.
