Reds’ Trevor Bauer has already forgotten what he loved about Cleveland

The last time pitcher Trevor Bauer wore an Indians jersey he angrily chucked a baseball over the center-field wall in the middle of a game as he was about to be pulled. He was traded three days later.

Bauer, who now pitches for the Reds, had some choice words to say about his time in Cleveland over the weekend.

“It was very easy coming in,” Bauer said to Fox Sports Ohio about joining the Reds. “Everyone did a really good job being accommodating, making it easy for me to make the transition. The information is great here, the coaching staff is great here, and overall I’m a lot happier here than I was. Sometimes you don’t realize how unhappy you are in a situation until you’re out of it. Just kind of the day-to-day life.

“I miss some of my teammates and stuff, but overall I don’t really miss a whole lot about Cleveland.”

The 28-year-old righty was always an outspoken presence in Cleveland and it appears that trend won’t stop in Cincinnati.

Bauer, who was a key starter in the Indians’ rotation since 2013, had a different message in his emotional goodbye video following the trade.

“When I look back at the last six years of my life, I’ll be left with one takeaway: How special my time here has been,” Bauer said. “Thank you, Cleveland. Forever.”

On Sunday, Bauer was crushed by the Pirates in a 9-8 loss, allowing eight runs (seven earned) on eight hits and two walks with two strikeouts. He was removed after three innings with his ERA inflated to 7.62.
