The move was not performance based, but it seems Trevor Bauer could use some additional time at Triple-A before making the permanent jump to the big leagues.  Bauer was scheduled to be optioned back to the minors when Chris Carrasco returned from suspension.  That is happening this week, so Bauer was sent down. Trevor Bauer was optioned to AAA Columbus after last night's game. Also Carlos Carrasco (5G susp to start year) is back on the active roster — Cleveland Indians (@Indians) April 7, 2013 Bauer has shown flashes of brilliance the few times he's pitched in the Majors so far in his career, but he has also shown many flaws.  In his start on Saturday, Bauer went five innings, walked seven batters, gave up three runs, and looked as if he had no control.  However, should Carrasco have still been serving his suspension, Bauer would have likely remained with the club. Bauer's move to Triple-A will allow him to work out the kinks.  Perhaps, he will be able to ease back into the grind of pitching every fifth day without the pressure of having to dominate each game.  By focusing so much on results over proper mechanics and getting back on track, Bauer could have risked injury.  There is less of a risk at Triple-A, but the risk is still there.  Player get frustrated, throw harder, and change their mechanics without even realizing it.  Hopefully that doesn't happen with Bauer. The 22-year old pitcher has made five starts in his Major League career.  Four of those starts was with the Diamondbacks.  Bauer is 1-3 with a 5.91 ERA.  He has the stuff necessary to be a good pitcher in the league, but he'll need to work on his control.  Bauer should be called up again at some point this season.
