TREVOR Bauer is still not back with the Los Angeles Dodgers after allegations were made against him, as Washington Nationals star Starlin Castro has also been suspended by the MLB over alleged domestic violence claims.

 Castro, 31, has been temporarily placed on administrative leave and is eligible to be paid while off the field, multiple sources told The Athletic.

Nationals manager Dave Martinez said in June that Castro was on the restricted list due to a “family matter” and no other details were offered.

Castro’s leave comes as Bauer has been accused of assault and new details have emerged, including pictures of injuries shared with police.

But Bauer‘s agent Jon Fetterolf told TMZ: “Mr. Bauer had a brief and wholly consensual sexual relationship initiated by [the accuser] beginning in April 2021.”

The woman’s attorney Marc Garelick said: “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.”

    “I think that our policies are robust and appropriate,” Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said about the league’s domestic abuse standards.

    “I think when you put them next to the policies that are present in most businesses in industry, they’re actually broader and more protective in terms of who we cover, for example.

    “So, yes, I think the policies are appropriate in terms of the administration. Every single time that we have had an allegation, we have conducted the most thorough investigation possible. 

    “We have a department of investigations that’s significantly bigger and [has] more expertise than at any point in the history of the game.

    “And when we have found credibility to an allegation, I think if you look at the disciplinary record, we have sent a message about what we will and will not tolerate.”
