Bauer to the Bullpen Could be Best for Bolstering Performance

You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Perhaps that’s why Indians fans are lucky that Trevor Bauer is young. Prior to Thursday night’s game against the Kansas City Royals, manager Terry Francona announced that Bauer, a starting pitcher, would be moving to the bullpen for the foreseeable future. According to, Bauer took the news well, but told Francona that he...

Bauer to Bullpen in Rotation Reduction

Trevor Bauer is an enigma.  He can get locked in early and dominate a game with flawless precision and just the same he can give up a base hit and get so far into his own mind he may never come back.  He is the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde of the Indians’ pitching staff, leaving fans to wonder nervously which Trevor will start.  Bauer has the “potential” to be a great starter...

Indians move Trevor Bauer to bullpen…for now

Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer has been moved to the bullpen, the team announced on Thursday. With Corey Kluber making his return to the rotation Thursday night, the struggling Bauer has been chosen as the odd man out. Manager Terry Francona and pitching coach Mickey Callaway decided to make the change due to Bauer’s recent downslide. Francona said Bauer responded to the...

Tribe Time Now: Trevor Bauer’s Hot Zones & Mark Shapiro’s Expatriation

Damien (@damienbowman) and Stephanie (@stephanieliscio) from It’s Pronounced Lajaway talk about a myriad of topics. Why are Trevor Bauer‘s mechanic’s so bad? Mark Shapiro is the best president the Indians have ever had. True or false? The Indians are still afraid of Miguel Cabrerra (for whatever reason). So, get ready for that this weekend. Stephanie gives us an update on...

That Thing Trevor Bauer Doesn’t Want to Talk About

Trevor Bauer is one of the most interesting pitchers not just on the Indians roster, but in all of baseball. From his homemade drones to his analytically-minded approach to studying the art of pitching, he is truly a unique breed of ballplayer. Aside from interesting personality quirks, Bauer is a tremendously talented pitcher, although lately this hasn’t been as obvious as it...

Trevor Bauer: Towards Better Pitching Through Science

Before anybody snarks about the quality of Trevor Bauer‘s pitching, and whether or not he’s good enough for us to value his thoughts on pitching, know that he’s fully aware of his limits, and was even before conceding six runs to the Yankees last night (box). “I don’t throw hard enough. My pitches aren’t strikes often enough. My pitches are consistent enough. I’d almost...

KISS: Trevor Bauer And Eliminating Pitches

Trevor Bauer is coming off, what could be argued, the worst start of his young professional career this past Monday against Detroit, as he allowed seven runs on nine hits over just three innings. He struck out three but walked four against a division rival the Indians need to start beating on a consistent basis. In that game this past Monday, he faced 22 batters and threw 86 pitches...

Bode Plots: Analyzing Trevor Bauer’s heat maps

SSomewhat lost in the midst of the Cleveland Indians failure to live up to expectations in the early part of the 2015 season is that Trevor Bauer has been quite good. In fact, he has been perhaps the most dominant pitcher in MLB, and, as such, Trevor has been the ace of a staff that has quite a few ace pitcher candidates. Corey Kluber has a Fangraphs “society” dedicated to his...

Trevor Bauer went HAM on an “overthinking” inquiry

There is no denying that Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Trevor Bauer is one of the more intelligent players in Major League Baseball. His penchant for mechanics and the how versus the why have made him into one of the league’s brightest young stars. Conversely, these same mannerisms—the pre-game routine, his replies to post-game questions—have made him a target of additional...

Trevor Bauer built his own drone

In addition to spending time working on his physical mechanics and becoming a member of the top half of the Cleveland Indians rotation, Tribe starting pitcher Trevor Bauer spent a portion of his offseason building his own drone. Arriving at the team’s complex in Goodyear, Arizona on Wednesday with the rest of his pitching brethren, Bauer unveiled his new toy, which he used to...
