Toronto, Ontario - It isn't the Bauer outage we're used to -- Trevor Bauer left Game 3 of the American League Championship Series after his little finger on his pitching hand started bleeding from a drone-related injury a few days ago.
His finger was stitched up but after only a few batters, blood was dripping from his hand. After attempts to stop it from bleeding on the mound, Manager Terry Francona pulled him from the game.
Bauer had been pushed back two days to Game 3 because his cut his right pinkie required stitches.
He was replaced by Dan Otero after 21 pitches.
Bauer's early exit likely means Corey Kluber will pitch Game 4 on short rest for Cleveland. Manager Terry Francona had said that was his plan if Bauer's finger acted up.
