Trevor Bauer picked the Dodgers, signing a reported three-year, $102 million contract that will pay him $85 million in the first two seasons, with opt-outs after both 2021 and 2022.

As you might imagine, that deal was the talk of baseball on Friday, aside from how it affects the Dodgers in relation to the competitive balance tax.

Blake Treinen was a guest Friday on MLB Network Radio, and praised the Dodgers organization as having a mix of “traditional baseball insight” and “new-age analytics,” and thought Bauer would be a good fit in Los Angeles.

“I’m pumped,” Treinen said. “The way he approaches the game, on a mental aspect, developing pitches aspect, because that fits perfectly with what the Dodgers are doing. I got to see a piece of that last year, which helped me to get back in some form to how I wanted to be as a pitcher.”
