For the second time in his career, Trevor Bauer is a professional All-Star.
The first time was in Major League Baseball (MLB) in 2018 with the Cleveland Indians, while this time it is in the Japanese Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) league.
Bauer earned the honor as part of the league «plus one» fan votein which he beat his closest competitor by over 1,000%.

Perhaps his performance in June prompted him to get the nod, as he was named league MVP of the month with his 4-0 record and 2.08 ERA.
Bauer signed with the NPB’s Yokohama DeNA BayStars in March following his release from the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The team released Bauer three weeks after an arbitrator reduced his suspension from 324 to 194 games following MLB’s investigation into domestic violence allegations. The Dodgers are paying Bauer more than $22 million, even though he’s not on the roster.

Bauer did not face charges for the allegations against him and denied any wrongdoing.
The pitcher received another sexual accusation last month, which he has also said is untrue.
Bauer recently settled his defamation case against The Athletic and one of its former reporters over an article written about a restraining order filed against the former MLB pitcher in 2021.

He signed with the Dodgers after their Cy Young Award campaign in the shortened 60-game season in 2020, but only appeared in 17 games for them.
In 11 starts for his NPB club this year, Bauer is 6-2 with a 3.67 ERA, 9.9 K/9 and a 1.22 WHIP.
