A woman allegedly assaulted by Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer visited a doctor with two black eyes and a bulging bruised lip, new photos show – but Bauer’s camp claims text messages show she consented to rough sex.
The 27-year-old woman said she suffered from massive headaches and vomited after the second of two violent encounters with the MLB All-Star, according to a request for a restraining order reviewed by The Post.
Bauer choked her unconscious, sodomized her without consent and punched her in the face, vagina and elsewhere, she alleged in the request. During the second assault, in May, she said she blacked out after he allegedly choked her unconscious.
“I re-gained consciousness even more disoriented,” she said in her statement. “I had a terrible pain behind both of my ears. I tasted blood in my mouth and felt that my lip was split open. My whole body hurt and I could not even tell if he was having sex with me.”
The woman was granted a temporary restraining order this week, in what is called an ex parte order – meaning it only includes her version of events. A formal hearing will be held July 23, and Bauer’s representatives confirmed to The Post they plan to refute the accusations at the hearing.
A spokesman for Bauer had no further comment but pointed to a statement issued Tuesday by the hurler’s agent that said, “Any allegations that the pair’s encounters were not 100% consensual are baseless, defamatory, and will be refuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
The woman said in her request that she met Bauer when she tagged him in an Instagram story, which led to the two sending each other direct messages. They met in person at Bauer’s Pasadena home on April 18 and had consensual sex that the woman claimed turned violent and included anal sex she didn’t consent to.
When they met a second time on May 15, they had sex again, which escalated into him punching her after he choked her unconscious, she said in a written declaration accompaying her request. When she came to, she alleged, she was crying and shaking and he tried to comfort her by repeating, “You’re safe, I’m here. You’re safe.”
“I would never do those things to you if it wasn’t sexually,” he whispered to her as he scratched her back, she said in court filings.
After throwing up and having head pain, her AA sponsor told her to visit a doctor. Despite police interviewing her, she didn’t press charges and downplayed the assault, she said in her request declaration.
In another medical examination, she was photographed and visibly battered, according to exhibits in the declaration.
Screenshots of texts reviewed by The Post, however, show what Bauer’s representatives say are the two communicating in between their two encounters, with her continuing to engage with the hurler and discussing their rough intercourse. The screenshots show someone with the accused woman’s name in timestamped exchanges.
In an exchange on May 9, she mentions Bauer choking her out,” the screenshot shows.
“You want to go out huh? Mmmm,” he says.
“Si. That was a game changer,” she replies.
“Tell me more,” he writes.
“Never been more turned on in my life,” she says. “Gimme all the pain. Rawr.”
“Really? When you were going out or when you woke up?” he replies.
“Going outttt,” she texts back, according to the images.
She adds, “Now that I know what it feels like to wake up from up it though itll probably feel just as good to wake up from that.”
“God you just turned me on so much,” he responds. He adds later, “Now I just want my arm around your neck from behind.”
“Do it,” she responds. “Harder.” She then shares an emoji of blowing a kiss.
When he asks what else she wants, she says “a couple of slaps” and “another handprint on my @$$” the screenshots show.
Other exchanges in the following days show the two trying to arrange another meetup.
The allegations are now being probed by Pasadena police and Major League Baseball.
Bauer’s agent released a statement Tuesday after news broke that she was granted a temporary restraining order
“Mr. Bauer had a brief and wholly consensual sexual relationship initiated by [the woman] beginning in April 2021,” Fetterolf said.
“Mr. Bauer and [the woman] have not corresponded in over a month and have not seen each other in over six weeks,” he went on.
“Her basis for filing a protection order is nonexistent, fraudulent, and deliberately omits key facts, information, and her own relevant communications. Any allegations that the pair’s encounters were not 100% consensual are baseless, defamatory, and will be refuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
The accuser’s attorney Marc Garelick didn’t respond to a phone call and email from The Post on Thursday.
