Trevor Bauer Struggles In Second Start Of Career, Exits In Fourth Inning

The start of Trevor Bauer's career isn't quite what he and Diamondbacks fans everywhere expected. While there's no denying the kid has some filthy stuff on the mound, he's still learning how to pitch to professional hitters at this level.

Making his second start on Tuesday night against the Padres, who have scored the fewest runs in baseball this season, Bauer failed to get out of the fourth inning.

Through 7.1 innings this season against the Braves and Padres, Bauer has allowed nine runs (eight earned) to score. He's given up 11 hits and seven walks, striking out nine in the process. He's also averaging about 23 pitches per-inning thus far, which is not going to do him or the D-backs bullpen any favors.

It's important to remember Bauer is still very young and has a very bright future ahead of him, but he's taking some licks right now.
