Arizona Diamondbacks' President and CEO Derrick Hall told reporters that the team is not looking to trade starting pitcher Trevor Bauer.

Arizona Diamondbacks' President and CEO Derrick Hall told Jesse Sanchez on MLB.com that the club will not trade starting pitcher Trevor Bauer.

After dominating the minor leagues with a 12-2 record and a 2.42 ERA, Bauer struggled in his first stint in the majors. Bauer went 1-2 with a 6.06 ERA in four starts and there were reports of Bauer not adjusting his pitching to big league hitting and not communicating with catcher Miguel Montero.

However, Bauer started to mend fences with the organization during the off-season, calling the front office and teammates like veteran J.J. Putz.

Hall said that while this wasn't the best season on the diamond for Bauer, his growth during the off-season was huge for the 2011 first round draft pick. The maturity needed to own up to his mistakes and apologizing to his teammates and staff will be big for his development down the road as he continues his promising young career.

"This season, although it was not good for him at the big league level, it was at the Minor League level. At the big league level, it was probably the most important season, because it was his biggest learning lesson in his life. What we have heard from him lately is very encouraging. He realizes he has made mistakes and he wants to embrace his teammates and hopes that they forgive him. Just really positive signs and we see a lot of maturity from everything he went through."
