Dodgers Pitcher Trevor Bauer's TRO To Remain In Place; Hearing Moved To August

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — A temporary restraining order will remain in place against Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer who is accused of sexual assault.

Bauer attended a hearing Friday on whether that temporary restraining order would be extended.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Dianna J. Gould-Saltman rescheduled the hearing for August after Bauer's attorneys asked for more time to review documents.

The current temporary restraining order will stay in place through Aug. 19.

The Dodgers pitcher is accused of choking and punching a woman and sexually assaulting her while she was unconscious.

Bauer denies the allegations and says the encounters were consensual.

He remains on administrative leave with pay while Pasadena police and the MLB conduct an investigation.

Bauer joined the Dodgers on Feb. 11 after signing a three-year, $102 million contract, including $40 million for the current season.

Update:  This article was updated to clarify that Major League Baseball placed Trevor Bauer on administrative leave with pay.  He was not suspended.
