Cleveland Indians' pitcher Trevor Bauer is a very active Twitter user, as he posts with regularity. But he has been a little bit quiet in recent days; too quiet actually. You may say that he's focusing on being fit for the Regular Season and he has no time to tweet due to the Spring Training.
Just had a meeting encouraging all players to take a stance and be leaders politically. Here’s my stance. I find it disingenuous that @mlb commissioners office would encourage this when they’ve specifically tried to censor me for sharing my opinion on the matter. #RiseUp— Trevor Bauer (@BauerOutage) 8 de marzo de 2018
A fan noticed his "silence" and worried about it; he asked the reasons for why he has been so quiet during this time. Bauer's response was direct: He blamed the MLB for it.
It is known that the pitcher is a really outspoken person; he shares his political views and often engages on debates with fans on the social network, and it seemed like the commissioner's office didn't like it at all.
Almost like I wasn’t allowed access to my twitter account for a while ����— Trevor Bauer (@BauerOutage) 8 de marzo de 2018
The 27-year-old pitcher pledges to fellow MLB players to be more active on political matters, as he claims that players as public figures should be more involved in political matters.
