Trevor Bauer injured himself with his drone again

7 Comments

Indians starter Trevor Bauer once missed a playoff start because he cut his finger repairing one of his drones. Even that consequence hasn’t stopped him from pursuing his hobby. Bauer revealed on Twitter on Monday that he once again injured himself with his drone.

Naturally, the Internet found it hilarious and started making jokes about it, to which Bauer responded:

Drones aside, Bauer has had an interesting offseason. His rivalry with Astros third baseman Alex Bregman continued, as the two had a back-and-forth on Twitter in which Bauer challenged Bregman to a home run hitting contest at Driveline Baseball.

Bauer also responded to suggestions the Indians should trade him by saying they shouldn’t. On MLB Network’s “Hot Stove” show last week, Bauer said, “Ultimately, I think the surplus value on me this year is just way too high. Even with an arbitration raise, you’re probably talking about $15 to $20 million of surplus value.”

Mets lose Robinson Canó, Jeff McNeil to injured list

As Bill wrote last night, Robinson Canó — bashed for his lack of hustle just a few days ago — busted it out of the box last night and strained his hamstring. That has now landed him on the injured list. Adeiny Hechavarria took over at second base after Cano’s last night and is starting there in today’s game versus the Nationals. No timetable has been given for Canó, but one usually misses at least a couple of weeks with hamstring pulls, sometimes longer.

Also going on the shelf for the Mets is Jeff McNeil, who hurt his hamstring on Tuesday. J.D. Davis will cover for him until he comes back. Michael Conforto is the next regular outfielder who should return to the fold. He has still not been given an offical comeback date after hitting the injured list with a concussion, but it was reported yesterday that he has been symptom free for a few days, which is a good sign.
