Newest Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer in videos

Trevor Bauer is all the talk all over Twitter, but I’ll be honest, I didn’t know much about him before yesterday. Well, there’s a lot of quirks about the Indians’ newest pitcher. First of all, he has a unique set of warm-up rituals to get ready to play the game. It includes a long toss session that can range from 340 to 400 foot throws. Just watch the video.

And then @JDM2119 pointed me to a video that Yahoo! Big League Stew posted over the summer which is really just a still photograph of Trevor and his high school buddy looking hip hop as their rap song plays in the background.

And finally, some video of him throwing back in UCLA. Bauer has a pretty violent-looking throwing motion. Seems to have a lot of personality.

    Oh jeez… is this guy the next Clint Dempsey? Are we going to have to start calling him “Deuce”? Hopefully the wanna-be-rapper thing is just a phase.. like Dempsey.

    just excluded him based on a meaningless, one-time personal observation. Once when the Yankees were in town I looked up and there he was, strolling around Tower City with a few teammates. In that setting he just looked like a normal guy, killing some time with the fellas. Not the nimrod who threw the broken bat at Piazza.

    Does he need the black horn-rims? Is his real theme song “Wild Thing”?

    We wear our caps on forward at this level son.
