SHARE Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer comes prepared for Royals -- wears boxing gloves in dugout

The Kansas City Royals have a penchant for brawling, and Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer is ready for a fight.

Bauer, who has been lights out in three starts this season, wore boxing gloves and a hood in the dugout at Progressive Field on Monday while the Indians played the Royals.

The Royals were most recently involved in an on-field brawl with the White Sox that resulted in discipline for seven players, including five-game suspensions for pitchers Chris Sale and Jeff Samardzija. Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura received a seven-game suspension.

The Royals have also had benches-clearing incidents with the Angels and with the A’s. All three incidents involved Ventura.
