Suspended Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer took to social media on Wednesday to backhand the MLB's decision to suspend Orioles pitcher Matt Harvey for 60 games.

Harvey was handed the suspension after testifying in court he distributed oxycodone to other players amid the investigation into the death of Los Angeles Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs. Bauer, who has been suspended since July 2021 and was recently given a 324-game ban, took to Twitter to slam the length of Harvey's suspension.

Bauer is currently trying to appeal his own ban for violating the league's domestic violence and sexual assault policy. The suspension stems from a 2021 case in which a woman accused Bauer of violent and sexual assault. Although the legal charges were dropped, the MLB has upheld his suspension and the Dodgers have continued to extend his "administrative leave" without pay.

There are reports the Dodgers still plan to cut Bauer even if he wins the appeal.
