2:27 PM PT -- Bauer is breaking his silence on the news ... adamantly denying all the serious allegations made against him.
"I never punched this woman in the face," Bauer said in a YouTube video. "I never punched her in the vagina. I never scratched her face. I never had anal sex with her or sodomized her in any way. I never assaulted her in any way at any time."
He added ... "In evaluating my life over recent months, it's clear I've made some poor choices, particularly in regards to the people that I've chosen to associate with, but I am not the person that this woman, her lawyers, and certain members of the media have painted me to be."
1:45 PM PT -- We've obtained the official declination of charges, in which officials commented ... "After a thorough review of all the available evidence, including the civil restraining order proceedings, witness statements and the physical evidence, the People are unable to prove the relevant charges beyond a reasonable doubt."
Trevor Bauer will NOT face any criminal charges for allegedly punching and choking a woman unconscious during sex, TMZ Sports has learned.
We're also told the decision was made in part because of texts messages between the accuser and Bauer ... where she indicated she was looking for rough sex.
Remember, 30-year-old Bauer was accused of getting physical with the woman during two sexual encounters in April and May 2021 ... which the alleged victim claimed left her with bumps, bruises, scratches and other injuries.
As for Bauer, he's long been adamant he did absolutely nothing wrong ... saying the situation was nothing more than rough sex between two consenting adults.
Bauer -- expected to be one of the aces on the Dodgers staff -- only started 17 games last season ... after he was placed on administrative leave by MLB once the allegations became public.
Back in August, the alleged victim asked a court to grant her a permanent restraining order, protecting her from Bauer.
