At a glance

  • Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Young has been reinstated by Major League Baseball after his initial 324-game suspension – the equivalent of two seasons – was reduced to 194 games by an arbitrator.
  • Bauer has only served 144 games of his suspension, but arbitrator Martin Scheinman ruled that he is eligible to be reinstated immediately, essentially giving him credit for the time he served on MLB’s restricted list in the second half of the 2021 season. Bauer, however, will be docked his pay from the Los Angeles Dodgers through the first 50 games of the 2023 season to make up the difference.
  • Bauer, a 31-year-old former Cy Young award winner, is under contract with the Dodgers for only one more season, on a deal that initially called for him to be paid $32 million.
