Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Trevor Bauer has denied allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman earlier this year.
The Pasadena Police Department told ESPN it is investigating the alleged assault, which it says occurred around the middle of May.
The woman was granted a domestic violence restraining order against Bauer. Her attorney, Marc Garelick, says she "suffered severe physical and emotional pain" as a result of a "recent assault" from Bauer.

"Our goal is to keep Mr. Bauer from contacting our client in any way possible. We anticipate there will be criminal action against Mr. Bauer, and it is our hope law enforcement will take our client's allegations and case seriously," he said.
Jon Fetterolf, Bauer's agent, released a statement on his behalf.
"Mr. Bauer had a brief and wholly consensual sexual relationship initiated by [the woman] beginning in April 2021," Fetterolf said in the statement. "We have messages that show [the woman] repeatedly asking for 'rough' sexual encounters involving requests to be 'choked out' and slapped in the face. In both of their encounters, [the woman] drove from San Diego to Mr. Bauer's residence in Pasadena, Calif., where she went on to dictate what she wanted from him sexually and he did what was asked."
