Trevor Bauer’s two-year ban from Major League Baseball was cut in half on Thursday. The Dodgers have two weeks to decide whether to put him back on their roster or let him go.
Bauer has been put back into the league after a neutral arbitrator made a decision about the league’s policy on domestic violence. This happened after Commissioner Rob Manfred decided to ban him for two full seasons (324 games) in April of 2022.
With his reinstatement, Bauer will have to miss 194 games without pay. Also, Bauer’s pay for the first 50 games of the 2023 season was cut by an arbitrator (i.e., the period covering March 30, 2023, to May 23, 2023).
Bauer could have lost $60 million if the full suspension had been kept. Even though the time is shorter, this is the longest a baseball player has ever been banned for sexual assault or domestic violence. In this article, we would find out who Trevor Bauer’s girlfriend is and how much he is worth.
Who Is Trevor Bauer’s Girlfriend? Is he seeing Rachel Luba?
Fans think that Trevor Bauer is dating Rachel Luba, who is a sports agent, but this has not been confirmed.
But a representative for Bauer said that Luba is his agent and a longtime friend, not his girlfriend.
Bauer told Sports Illustrated in an interview in 2019 that he would make a “bad husband” because of his three rules for dating.
“I have three rules. One: no feelings. “If I think you have feelings for me, I’ll stop talking to you because I don’t want a relationship and I’m emotionally unavailable,” said Bauer.
“Two: Don’t talk about me on social media while we’re together, because private lives stay private. Thirdly, I don’t sleep alone. I want to keep sleeping with other people. If you don’t agree with that, we can’t sleep together, which is fine. We can just be friends with no romantic ties.”

What’s Trevor Bauer’s net worth?
Celebrity Net Worth says that Trevor Bauer has a net worth of around $35 million.
Trevor signed a three-year, $102 million deal with the Dodgers in February of 2021. Before this contract, he had played for six years with the Indians and one year with the Reds and had made about $47 million. The Dodgers gave him a $10 million signing bonus, and then they paid him $28 million for the 2021 season, $32 million for the 2022 season, and another $32 million for the 2023 season. Trevor was put on paid administrative leave in July 2021, after a few allegations of sexual assault came to light. He had only pitched 13 games for the team. Trevor got the full signing bonus of $10 million and his full salary of $28 million for 2021.
In April of 2022, Rob Manfred, the commissioner of MLB, said that Trevor would be banned for two seasons or 324 games. Bauer said he would appeal, but if the suspension stands, it will cost Trevor $64 million.
If Bauer would have never been suspended, he would have made more than $150 million by the end of his Dodgers contract. If the suspension sticks, he will have made $85 million in his career.
