Bauer allowed two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out seven batters over 6.1 innings during Thursday's win over Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

After allowing 10 runs through 10.2 innings over his first two starts, this was a welcomed bounce-back showing. It's worth noting that Arizona and Detroit are both strong offenses, so it could be wise to not read too much into Bauer's poor results through his first two outings. He's struggled to live up to the pedigree he entered the league with, but if you're selective with the opponents you start him against, he can still reward.

Bauer's scheduled start Wednesday was rained out, and he will start Thursday agains the Twins instead.

EDGE Analysis

While the Indians' rotation will simply be pushed back, Minnesota will use this as an opportunity to skip rookie Adalberto Mejia and give Ervin Santana the start Thursday on normal rest, so Bauer's chances of notching a win this week take a slight hit.

Bauer (0-2) was crushed over five innings, allowing six runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out six in Friday's loss to the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

The 26-year-old battled his way through four decent innings before he was derailed by a pair of home runs. Miguel Cabrera took Bauer deep for a three-run bomb in the fifth, then Alex Avila dropped a two-run shot off the righty in the sixth. Over the past three seasons combined, Bauer averaged one home run given up per nine innings, but this year he's served up three dingers in just 10.2 innings. He'll look to rebound and capture his first win of 2017 when he toes the rubber again Wednesday in Minnesota.

Bauer (0-1) pitched 5.2 innings, allowing four runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out seven in Saturday's loss to Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander opened his regular season with six strikeouts through four scoreless innings. From there, things got a bit shaky. Bauer escaped a bases-loaded jam by giving up just one run in the fifth, but tagged for a double, triple and home run in the bottom of the sixth before getting the hook. He'll make his next start Friday at home against Detroit.

Bauer is scheduled to start the Indians' fifth game of the season, April 8 at Arizona, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Indians have an off day during the first week of the season but they do not plan on skipping any of their five starters. With that, Bauer will be sandwiched between Josh Tomlin and Corey Kluber in the weekend series against the Diamondbacks. Bauer has given up 13 runs on 31 hits (including five homers) with an 18:6 K:BB in 24.2 Cactus League innings this spring.

Bauer pitched four innings, allowing three runs on three hits -- including two homers -- and one walk while striking out one Friday against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer had thrown six scoreless innings over two starts prior to Friday's tilt against the Giants. After the game, the right-hander proclaimed it was "the best I've thrown this spring." For the first time this year, Bauer unleashed his full arsenal of pitches, including a new split-finger fastball, and felt good about how he controlled the artillery. "Today I felt like I commanded it to both sides of the plate," Bauer said. "I threw some cutters and curveballs and splits, so I felt like I was making progress." Coming off a career-best campaign, the 26-year-old look as if he's ready to begin 2017.

Bauer allowed three four hits and struck out one over three scoreless innings in Wednesday's exhibition game against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer looked strong in his first spring outing. He effectively used his splitter to induced six ground outs and did not issue a walk. Unlike 2016, Bauer will enter the upcoming season as a member of the starting rotation.

Bauer will have a normal workload during spring training, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite incurring one of the strangest injuries during last year's postseason, the young right-hander was forced to carry a heavy workload during the Indians' playoff run due to the other injuries their rotation experienced. Even with that in mind, Bauer seems to be in line to work with no limitations this spring as he works to be a mainstay in the Tribe's rotation for 2017.

Bauer signed a one-year, $3.55 million deal with the Indians on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Entering his fourth full season, Bauer has settled in as someone who will post an ERA in the 4.00-4.50 range, while getting enough starts to win double-digit games and record 150-plus strikeouts. More of the same should be expected in 2017.

Bauer (finger) has been confirmed as the starting pitcher for Game 2 of the World Series on Tuesday night.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer did not make it out of the first inning in his last start due to a cut on his finger, but he has not appeared in a game in nine days, and the Indians are confident that his hand will hold up better this time around. Bauer will be looking to snap a streak of seven straight starts -- not counting his last outing -- in which he has allowed three earned runs or more.
