Free pitcher Trevor Bauer: Toronto ‘could be a destination’


Trevor Bauer will be one of the most sought after free agent throwers this offseason and the Toronto Blue Jays are looking for another starter to team up with Hyun-Jin Ryu and Nate Pearson. It seems like a match made in heaven and it looks like Bauer is okay with it.

After MLB Network aired a segment on why the Jays and Bauer might be a good fit, the Cy Young runner-up responded on Twitter.

“Toronto is a nice city,” Bauer wrote with a blinking face emoji. “Maybe a destination. “

Bauer stirred the pot with Canadian baseball fans in 2016, when he shared a pro-American tweet on Facebook after his Cleveland Indians beat the Blue Jays in a 19-innings game on Canada Day. . Bauer came out of the box and threw five scoreless frames to close the game.

Still, whether Blue Jays fans like it or not, it’s clear the team could use a starter of Bauer’s caliber. The 29-year-old has made 11 starts for the Cincinnati Reds this season, with two full shutouts. He was named a finalist for the NL Cy Young Award after posting a career best 1.73 GPA and 100 strikeouts, one of only three pitchers to reach the milestone of the century in the shortened season.

Bauer has been very active on Twitter since the Reds were knocked out of the playoffs, pushing for teams to pitch their best (pun intended) for his serves. The MLB free agency opened on Sunday, but with the pandemic impacting every team’s finances, it may be some time before a team feels comfortable offering Bauer the salary worthy of an ace he seeks.
