Trevor Bauer’s paid administrative leave from the Dodgers was extended Friday through Sept. 3, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. It’s the seventh time Major League Baseball and the players’ union have done so since Bauer was accused of sexual assault in late June. His leave was scheduled to expire Friday.

Bauer remains under investigation by MLB and the Pasadena Police Department. An L.A. Superior Court judge Aug. 19 denied a request for a permanent restraining order against Bauer from the San Diego woman who accused him of assault.

The Dodgers signed Bauer to a three-year, $102 million contract last offseason, the largest contract ever for a pitcher. The Cy Young Award winner last season with the Cincinnati Reds, Bauer was 8-5 with a 2.59 ERA over 17 starts with the Dodgers.

His last start was June 28, the day before his accuser filed for a temporary restraining order that laid out her accusations. She alleges that he punched her in the face, vagina and buttocks while she was unconscious during a sexual encounter May 17. They also had sex April 21, although she says that encounter was consensual.

Bauer’s attorneys say that everything that occurred during the two encounters at Bauer’s Pasadena home were “wholly consensual.”
