Trevor Bauer, the unpredictable and outspoken Cleveland Indians starter, isn't a fan of Major League Baseball's pace of play rules.

Following his start against the Kansas City Royals on Saturday, the right-hander said he was rushed and didn't have a chance to properly warm up prior to a Lucas Duda home run on the first pitch of the seventh inning.

"Elevated fastballs, I didn't expect to throw (the pitch) 90 mph," Bauer told reporters after the game, including Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com. "First pitch of the inning, coming out I tried to get loose, but with the new Rob Manfred time B.S. we have only a certain amount of time between innings, it's hard to get loose sometimes, especially in conditions like that. It's not safe, but, you know, whatever."

Per the newly implemented rules, a pitcher has 25 seconds between innings to warm up, but must throw his final pitch at the 20-second mark. It's also no longer guaranteed that a pitcher receives eight warm-up pitches between innings. Instead, a pitcher must throw as many as they can within the aforementioned time slot.

While a pitcher's velocity will fluctuate throughout the game, Bauer finished his start (100 pitches) with an average fastball velocity of 93 mph. The one Duda connected with, registered at 90 mph.

"Every inning you basically start off not loose," Bauer continued. "I told the umpire today when he was trying to make me speed up, I said 'Look, I'll take the fine if I need to.' I'm not going to put myself at risk, and I'm not going to put the team at risk having exactly what happened, happen."
