Trevor Bauer unclaimed on waivers, is now free agent

NEW YORK (AP) — Trevor Bauer has become a free agent because he was unclaimed on waivers. It leaves the Los Angeles Dodgers responsible for about $22.5 million owed to the former Cy Young Award winner, whose unprecedented 324-game suspension over sexual misconduct allegations was reduced to 194 games by an arbitrator. Los Angeles designated Bauer for assignment on Jan. 6, which was the last day to restore him to the roster. Any team could sign the 2020 NL Cy Young Award winner for the major league minimum of $720,000.
