Cleveland, OH (92.3 The Fan) – Trevor Bauer didn't spend any time discussing his use of social media.

“Thanks for your time guys. Appreciate it,” Bauer said, when asked about his use of social media. It was the second and final response he gave to the media after walking into the clubhouse following an afternoon workout. 

The Indians' All-Star apologized on Wednesday after having an uncomfortable Twitter exchange with a college student earlier in the week. 

“In my opinion, looking from the outside in, I think it’s a guy that’s being very, very vocal about what’s on his mind," Mike Clevinger said. "A lot of people want the freedom of everything, but people don’t like opinions at the same time. It's the world we live in.”

"If you want to see the person, you want to meet the person, you want to know him – let him be himself."

Bauer, 27, has been the subject of trade rumors all offseason long. He will be at Tribe Fest on Saturday afternoon.
