Dodgers SP Trevor Bauer has received a two-year (324-game) suspension from MLB for violating its domestic violence and sexual assault policy, according to multiple reports. Bauer says he is appealing the suspension. In a follow-up to the initial report, ESPN's Jeff Passan shares a note that Bauer will not be given credit for any time he has already missed. Instead, his suspension starts today and would cover the rest of the 2022 season, the entire 2023 season, and the beginning of the 2024 season.

Notes 
 Barlow saved 18 games between the majors and the minors last year, putting up excellent ratios. He'll get the first opportunity to close in Texas, but he doesn't have a lengthy track record with being the stopper, so the leash probably isn't that long. That's not a great thing considering his ERA metrics were far worse than his actual numbers and his walk-rate is sub par. Barlow is a closer, so he should be drafted, but don't go in expecting 25 saves given the risks.
