Trevor Bauer struggled to throw strikes in his four-start debut with the Diamondbacks earlier this season before heading back to Triple-A and any plans to potentially recall him from the minors have been canceled.
There was some talk last month that Bauer could rejoin the Diamondbacks for a late-season start or two once the Triple-A playoffs were over, but instead they’ll avoid adding to his current workload of 163 innings.
Bauer walked seven batters in his final Triple-A start and struggled in the Triple-A playoffs overall, but manager Kirk Gibson told Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic that wasn’t a factor.
Piecoro has a lot of interesting quotes from Gibson and general manager Kevin Towers regarding Bauer’s future in Arizona, which will almost surely involve the 21-year-old former No. 3 overall pick competing for a full-time rotation spot next spring.
