Trevor Bauer getting absolutely torched in Japan has Dodgers fans resting easy

After pitching well initially as he was gearing up in the Japanese version of the minor leagues, things have taken a turn for the worse for Trevor Bauer with Yokohama.

In his latest start for the BayStars, Bauer only lasted two innings and gave up seven runs on eight hits with one walk and one strikeout.

To say that he's struggling early on in his transition to pitching professionally over in Japan would be an understatement. He had his fun swording the Japanese minor leaguers, and now he's getting gutted by the big dogs. Across three starts, the right-hander has surrendered 14 earned runs (8.40 ERA) on 26 hits in just 15 innings of work.

The Dodgers owe Bauer a little over $22.5 million this season after releasing him back in January and the sunk cost certainly isn't forcing them to lose any sleep at night.
