The Los Angeles Dodgers have been in the news a lot lately, but not for very good reasons. The team opted to release embattled pitcher Trevor Bauer recently after the 324-game suspension he received after he was accused of sexually abusing a woman in 2021 was reduced to 194 games. After the strange decision to release Bauer so long after the suspension was enforced, Freddie Freeman offered an interesting take on the Dodgers decision to move on from Bauer.
There have been a lot of different rumors and reports regarding the decision-making process the Dodgers used when it came to making their decision to release Bauer, and some believed that the players on the Dodgers played an important role in the decision. Freeman disputes that, though, saying that the players didn’t make the decision, but that it was ownership’s call to move on from Bauer.
