TMZ Sports has learned the alleged victim was granted a temporary domestic violence restraining order earlier today in L.A.
Pasadena PD is investigating the alleged incident … and sources tell us TB is cooperating with authorities.
As for the alleged victim … her attorney tells us his client “sought and obtained an order for Protection from the Court against Mr. Trevor Bauer, under the Domestic Violence Prevention Act.”
According to TMZ the case will likely be sent to the district attorney who will then decide whether or not to press charges. The lawyer for the alleged victim anticipates there will be “criminal action against Bauer.
“The order is a result of a recent assault that took place at the hands of Mr. Bauer where Ms. Hill suffered severe physical and emotional pain.”
The attorney continued … saying he expects criminal charges to ultimately be filed against the MLB All-Star.
“Our goal is to keep Mr. Bauer from contacting our client in any way possible. We anticipate there will be criminal action against Mr. Bauer, and it is our hope law enforcement will take our client’s allegations and case seriously.”
Following TMZ’s report, Bauer’s agent Jon Fetterolf says Bauer denies any wrongdoing and has text messages to prove that his relationship with the woman was just ‘consensual rough sex.’

“Mr. Bauer had a brief and wholly consensual sexual relationship initiated by [the accuser] beginning in April 2021. We have messages that show [the accuser] repeatedly asking for ‘rough’ sexual encounters involving requests to be ‘choked out’ and slapped in the face.”
“In both of their encounters, [the accuser] drove from San Diego to Mr. Bauer’s residence in Pasadena, Calif. where she went on to dictate what she wanted from him sexually and he did what was asked. Following each of her only two meetings with Mr. Bauer, [the accuser] spent the night and left without incident, continuing to message Mr. Bauer with friendly and flirtatious banter. In the days following their second and final encounter, [the accuser] shared photos of herself and indicated that she had sought medical care for a concussion. Mr. Bauer responded with concern and confusion, and [the accuser] was neither angry nor accusatory.”
“Mr. Bauer and [the accuser] have not corresponded in over a month and have not seen each other in over six weeks. Her basis for filing a protection order is nonexistent, fraudulent, and deliberately omits key facts, information, and her own relevant communications. Any allegations that the pair’s encounters were not 100% consensual are baseless, defamatory, and will be refuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
