Major League Baseball suspended pitcher Trevor Bauer of the Los Angeles Dodgers for two complete seasons without pay on Friday.
Trevor has been charged with violating the league's policy on domestic violence and sexual assault, which he disputes.
Bauer's lengthy ban follows allegations that he battered and sexually abused a San Diego woman whom he met through social media last year.
Prosecutors in Los Angeles concluded in February that there wasn't enough evidence to establish the woman's claims beyond a reasonable doubt.
Bauer has stated numerous times that everything between the two was voluntary.
In a statement released Friday, he stated, "In the strongest possible words, I deny committing any violation of the league's domestic violence and sexual assault policies."
Bauer will lose roughly $60 million in compensation if the penalty is upheld.
