Trevor Bauer’s Agent Disputes Allegations
Trevor Bauer’s co-agent, Jon Fetterolf, has contested the allegations and said that there has been no non-consensual incident. He clarified that Bauer and the woman met in April and there had been a short period of sexual relationship that was wholly consensual and was started by the accuser.
He said that her filing protection had no basis and was fraudulent. He further said that key facts and relevant communication about the relationship had been withheld. He alleged that the woman had instead demanded ‘rough’ sexual acts and had demanded to be slapped and ‘choked out’.
Fetterolf even said that the woman had friendly communications after the encounter with Bauer. There had been no communication between the woman and Trevor Bauer for the past 6 weeks, Fetterolf said.
Trevor Bauer had joined the Dodgers this year on a 3-year contract worth $102 million. He won the Cy Young when he was with the Cincinnati Reds in 2020, his first.
