CLEVELAND -- After winning his offseason arbitration case by more than he expected to, Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Trevor Bauer has opted to begin a charitable campaign.

And it's nice.

On Wednesday, Bauer, who will be paid $6,525,000 this season, announced his upcoming '69 Days of Giving' operation, which will run through his new website, BauerOutage.com. Bauer will donate increments of $420.69 to different charities for 68 days, before giving $69,420.69 to a secret charity of his choosing on the 69th and final day.

In typical Bauer fashion, the 27-year-old made the announcement with a quirky video, which happened to also feature him playing with one of his infamous drones.

The first 68 charities will be chosen by fans, who can make suggestions via a contact form found on his website. The first charity chosen is the Lone Survivor Foundation, a Bauer favorite.

Bauer told Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan that he came up with '69 Days of Giving' after receiving more in arbitration than anticipated this offseason. After initially asking for a nice, high salary of $6,420,969.69, he wound up with more than $104,000 more than that, leading to his newfound charitable cause.

Entering his fifth season with the Indians, Bauer is coming off a career year in 2017, in which he earned a career-best 17-9 record to go along with 196 strikeouts and a .419 ERA.
