Reno beat Omaha, 13-1, as Bauer allowed one run over 6 2/3 innings. He did walk five and allowed three hits.
"I don't know that yet," D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said when asked if Bauer would be called up after the playoff series ended. "It's a possibility. You guys look at his game? Struggled early, walked a lot of guys, kind of got it together and threw 6 2/3. He struggled with his command early. It's a possibility. I don't know that we've made a decision yet."
Bauer, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2011 First-Year Player Draft and the D-backs' top prospect, made four starts for the D-backs earlier this year and was 1-2 with a 6.06 ERA.
