Kris Bryant says he’s fully healthy after missing a couple months with a shoulder injury in 2018 that severely impacted his performance after starting the season on an MVP pace until the middle of May. Anyway, while continuing to get back in the best shape of his life, Bryant has discovered a new hobby this offseason, drones.

But just because Bryant’s into drones now doesn’t mean he’s trying to take any tips from noted asshole and drone enthusiast Trevor Bauer, who pitches for Cleveland and has a hilariously bad history with drones.
I mean, who could forget Bauer cutting his finger during the 2016 ALCS against the Blue Jays.
Josh Tomlin will start Game 2 at Progressive Field in place of Bauer, who cut his finger while doing routine maintenance on his drone. The free-spirited Bauer is a longtime drone enthusiast and has built and flown the devices for years.
Bauer was pushed back to Game 3 of that series, but was pulled early because he was bleeding on the mound in the very first inning.
That came after he began the season by crashing a drone at Guaranteed Rate Field, where the White Sox play. The White Sox had just installed their brand new video boards too.

I mean, it was definitely him.
Bauer also lost another drone in 2017.
The Cleveland pitcher, who also is an enthusiast of flying the unmanned, remote-controlled devices, lost the drone on Monday in a suburban park where he was zipping it around trees and other obstacles with a camera attached.
So yeah, don’t take any advice from this tool.
KB said Trevor Bauer offered tips on drones, but KB declined.

Kris Bryant: “I just bought a drone. Those things are so fun.”
“My fingers don’t go near it!”
