In a nod to the Astros, Trevor Bauer tips his pitches and still retires a batter. David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

No MLB player has been more outspoken about the Houston Astros’ sign-stealing scandal than Trevor Bauer, and the Cincinnati Reds pitcher had his own way of bringing it up again on Monday.

Bauer was visibly giving the signs to Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Matt Beaty during a fourth inning at-bat Monday. Beaty was right on them but ultimately flied out to center.

Bauer’s teammate Derek Dietrich confirmed that Bauer was tipping his pitches in a shot at the Astros, sarcastically saying it was a way to make things fair for hitters.

It’s safe to say Bauer hates what the Astros did and is not going to let it go. This is certainly one way to make a point about what they were up to in 2017, and it’s unlikely to be the last we hear, either.
