Cubs fan sends Indians’ Trevor Bauer a drone

CLEVELAND (WCMH/AP)–Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer shared a photo of a little gift he got Wednesday from a Chicago Cubs fan.

He sliced the finger earlier this month while fixing one of his many drones. Then in Game 3 of the AL Championship Series at Toronto, blood began dripping onto the ball, the mound and his uniform, and he lasted only 21 pitches.

A Cubs fan sent him another drone with the note “Go Cubs Go!”

Bauer says he’s set to face the Cubs as the starting pitcher on Wednesday. He threw a simulated game this week with gauze over the finger — a no-no during actual action — and there was no bleeding.

“I’m going to go out there and execute to the best level of my ability, and it’s going to be what it’s going to be,” he said. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
