Lawyers for Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer, who remains on administrative leave from Major League Baseball after a woman said he sexually assaulted her, released text messages Tuesday in an effort to prove the interactions were consensual.
Richard Winton of the Los Angeles Times reported the text messages were some the woman exchanged with both the pitcher and others.
Winton provided further details:
"In one text exchange between the woman and her cousin following the incident in May, she attached a photo of her injured face.
"In response to the photo, the cousin wrote, 'As long as it is consensual, I don't have to kill him.'
"The woman replied, 'It was consensual, but I didn't like the two black eyes ?? Look, he (definitely) took it too far. don't you think lol."
