Who Says Cleveland Pitcher Trevor Bauer Doesn’t Have a Sense of Humor?
Bauer tweeted a picture before Game 2 that featured a small drone sent to him by a Chicago Cubs fan.
Bauer infamously cut the pinkie on his right (pitching) hand while tinkering with a drone before the AL Championship Series. The Indians pushed back his start to Game 3 in Toronto, but Bauer was removed in the first inning when his stitched-up finger started dripping blood.
His pinkie appeared to be in much better shape Wednesday night. And while Bauer has grown tired of talking about the mishap, he seems to be OK with some good-natured ribbing from fans.
The drone came with a note that read, "Hi Trevor, Go Cubs Go."
Bauer's finger made it through three innings without bleeding, but the Cubs took a 2-0 lead as they tried to even the Series at a game apiece.
The right-hander was lifted with two outs in the fourth. He threw 87 pitches and gave up six hits.
