MLB roundup: Bauer pitches Indians past Astros

Trevor Bauer won his individual matchup against Gerrit Cole, his former UCLA staff mate, and the Cleveland Indians claimed the opener of their four-game series with the host Houston Astros 2-1 Thursday.

Bauer (3-1) allowed at least one baserunner in each of his eight innings yet faced just one batter with a runner in scoring position. The Astros managed one run off Bauer: a 411-foot solo home run from George Springer in the third.

Bauer yielded four hits and six walks while fanning three. Cleveland got solo homers from Leonys Martin in the third inning and Jake Bauers in the fifth. Brad Hand threw a perfect ninth inning for his seventh save.

Cole (1-4) allowed two runs on three hits and three walks in seven innings. He struck out 10.

In case there’s anything we wish to discuss that there isn’t a thread for…

Trevor Bauer Is More Concerned With Being Right Than Being Liked

Trevor Bauer sits on a folding chair in a drafty warehouse, sipping applesauce from a plastic cup and electrocuting his brain. Well, electrifying his brain, actually. Bauer, who values precision, points out that there’s an important difference. To electrocute something means to injure or kill it. But he will spend 20 minutes with one milliamp coursing, not unpleasantly, between the electrodes affixed near his temples in an effort to improve the organ that was already most responsible for his near Cy Young season with the Indians last year—which, he will tell you, should have been a Cy Young season for real.

The technique is called Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation, or tDCS. Studies have suggested that it can temporarily increase synaptic plasticity, thereby helping subjects acquire skills faster. The U.S. military has used tDCS to expand the capabilities of its target analysts, but Bauer’s mission today is to revamp his changeup. “Anything to expedite the learning curve,” he says…..

Driveline is a testosterone-soaked place—if a woman walked through any of its doors during the two days in January that I spent there, I didn’t see her—and Bauer loves to perpetuate the puerile jokes that clank around like foul balls. He likes to begin his pitch design sessions at 4:20 p.m. He throws three sets of 23 pitches; add them up. He wears T-shirts that read bofa, which ostensibly stands for Bauer Outage For America but is really a reference to male body parts that, unlike the brain, come in sets of two.

Nightengale: Trevor Bauer’s radical idea on MLB contracts could benefit everyone

As free agents have struggled to land long-term deals over the past two winters, the 28-year-old believes that signing only one-year contracts would make him affordable to all 30 teams, even with an annual price tag of at least $35 million.

“I’ll go year-to-year my entire career,” said Bauer, who is scheduled to become a free agent after the 2020 season. “Why would you lock yourself in a situation that may not make you happy? I think that’s highly inefficient. Everybody is afraid of risk. Everyone is scared.

Trevor Bauer: Indians presented ‘character assassination’ against him

Maybe Bauer doesn’t have the temperament to go to arbitration every year. As Sean Casey will tell you, “It’s not business; it’s personal.”
