The lawsuit filed Monday indicates that Bolsinger is seeking two forms of harm. The first is a consequent and general damage that Bolsinger claims to have suffered and continues to suffer from Astros “which interferes and damages his career,” says the cause.
Bolsinger has given up on four races against Astros
He was therefore an initial pitcher in the minor leagues for four years, the lawsuit said.
After being called several times by minors to the major leagues and playing for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Bolsinger was swapped with the Blue Jays of Toronto, where he became a rescue pitcher.
Bolsinger was called during the Blue Jays game against the Astros on August 4, 2017, after his team’s previous pitchers had given up on several heats, says the lawsuit. He gave up four runs during the launch and “was immediately interrupted and cut by the team to never return to Major League Baseball”.
“For a MLB pitcher journalist like the plaintiff, a disastrous inning, like the one that happened in Houston on August 4, could and turned out to be the deadly bell of the plaintiff’s MLB career,” the lawsuit said.
“Because of the innings against the Houston Astros, plaintiff Bolsinger was no longer seen as a rescue pitcher who could be trusted in this role and was not picked up by the Blue Jays for the following year.”
Bolsinger continued to play baseball in Japan, claims the cause, where he was considered one of the best pitchers in 2018.
