Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Trevor Bauer keeps making waves.

The reigning NL Cy Young winner received an official warning from Major League Baseball for violating the league's uniform regulations during spring training games. Bauer posted an image of the warning on Twitter.

"Specifically, you violated Section D (2), which prohibits you from having corporate identification or any other logos visible on any part of the undershirt (except for your club's logo, the Major League Baseball silhouetted batter logo, or another logo jointly approved by Major League Baseball and the Players Association)," the letter from Michael Hill, MLB's senior vice president of on-field operations, read.

"An unauthorized logo was visible on your undershirt during your club's spring training games on both March 6, 2021, and March 11, 2021.

"Additionally, you also violated Section M(3), which prohibits you from displaying corporate logos or other identifying marks on equipment, apparel, or outerwear. A belt with corporate identification on it was visible (on the above dates as well)."

The letter ended with a note saying Bauer would be subject to discipline, including the possibility of a fine, if the violations continue.

The outspoken pitcher appears to be wearing a shirt with his personal logo, and he states in his tweet that he was simply marketing himself.

Bauer has made plenty of headlines already this spring after signing a three-year, $102-million contract with the Dodgers in early February. He got into a Twitter spat with New York Mets starter Noah Syndergaard after it appeared he had signed in Queens and, more recently, pitched an inning against the San Diego Padres with one eye closed.
