"I don’t think Bauer is the pitcher he was for four months in 2018 or two months last year; the control has rarely been there to support that level of run prevention. Still, if I had to bet on any single player to make 30 starts in 2021, I’d pick Bauer. He has a very high floor, which pairs well with the Dodgers’ collection of hothouse flowers -- pretty ones, to be sure -- on the mound."
