Big things were expected of Bauza this season. Goals flowed for fun in pre-season and he made his start in the opening day defeat at Charlton.
But since then he has dropped from the line up and now finds himself on the fringes with not even a place on the bench to show for his Championship dream at present.
But he is in line for a place against Cardiff City on Tuesday night and he reveals that the Derby atmosphere will not get to him having seen far worse in some of his local games back home in Spain.
Speaking to the Evening Post he said "I have talked to the guys about Cardiff and everybody is really excited by the draw
"Personally, I am really looking forward to it.
"I really want to see the atmosphere of a derby in Britain. I am told a Swansea-Cardiff derby is very, very special occasion.
"I want to see what the crowds are going to sing and support.
"It is similar in Spain because you have big rivals there like Barca-Real and Barca-Espanyol.
"There is a great atmosphere and the press go crazy before the game.
"But I am told the crowds live it more here than in Spain.
"There was the pig's head thrown at Figo at the Barca-Real game at the Nou Camp and they also threw notes at him because he'd left Barca to join them.
"But that is just one occasion. In Britain I think there are more incidents in derbies.
"Obviously, I don't want to see any disturbance or trouble because that is nothing to do with football.
"But there is something special about these games — the crowd will push you harder in derbies. Your heart beats quicker.
"But everyone has to keep his own mind calm and not let the occasion get to him."
He added: "I didn't really have a derby in Mallorca, but when I was at Espanyol Barcelona was the big game. I played two derbies in my time there for the B team and we won both.
"Even at a second-team game there was a big crowd. It meant that much to the supporters. For a normal game there would be around 1,000 fans, but when we played Barca then there was 5,500-6,000 and the games would be on TV.
"I got to see the first-team derby as I was in the stand with my team-mates and that was a great experience.
"Those rivalries are one of the beautiful things in football."
Despite his fall from the squad, the striker insists that he is ready and waiting to prove his worth when he gets the chance and added "I am not frustrated, I worked hard all pre-season and I wanted to show I was a player the gaffer could choose for the first XI.
"I have to keep working hard and stay fit so that when the chance comes along I am ready.
"It is a very long season and the gaffer is going to need everyone in the squad.
"My experience of last season has put me in good stead. I didn't play at the start but in the middle and end I played a lot.
"I have one year of experience now and we are in a new level.
"We have a number of strikers now with Jason, Gorka and Febian along with myself — it is good for the gaffer to have a number of strikers who could come in and do the job.
"I will be ready if he wants me. I am going to do my best and grab it to make it difficult for him to leave me out of the team.
"That's how you have to look at it, otherwise you will have the wrong attitude and that could disturb the team."
