She also claimed that she lost consciousness and the pitcher stuck his fingers down her throat. Bauer has repeatedly denied the allegations, saying it was all consensual.

“[Her] the allegations were rebutted in court last August following a hearing into a DVRO petition filed in bad faith,” the statement read.

“She is being sued for defamation in order to be held accountable for her lies and the damages she has caused. Her countersuit is a regurgitation of her judicially refuted claims and a new attempt by [her] to defame Mr. Bauer and seek to profit from his lies.”

Bauer says the two engaged in rough sex and set boundaries beforehand.

“In the strongest possible terms, I deny any violation of the league’s domestic violence and sexual assault policy,” Bauer wrote in a statement during his suspension. “I am appealing this action and hope to prevail. As we have done throughout this process, my representatives and I respect the confidentiality of the proceedings.”

DODGERS’ TREVOR BAUER SUSPENDED FOR 2 SEASONS AFTER ALLEGED SEXUAL ASSAULT

Major League Baseball suspended Bauer for two years in April after saying he violated the league’s joint policy on domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse and despite Bauer avoiding charges in federal court.

The suspension is the longest non-lifetime penalty in MLB history, and Bauer became the first player to appeal a suspension under this policy.
