  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Battles sinus infection Wednesday

    Clevinger said he was dealing with a sinus infection during his Cactus League start Wednesday against the Rangers, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    There was a concerning dip in his velocity readings, and Clevinger blamed it on the illness, saying he struggled to find an "extra gear" with his fastball. Still, the 32-year-old right-hander managed to induce a bevy of groundouts as he turned in five innings of one-run ball versus Texas. He should be in the clear to open the 2023 regular season as a starter for the White Sox.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Won't face discipline from MLB

    Clevinger will not face discipline from Major League Baseball following an investigation into domestic violence charges, Jesse Rogers of reports.

    Rogers also reports that Clevinger has voluntarily agreed to evaluations by Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Player Association's treatment boards, and that he will comply with any recommendations. It was reported in January that the league was investigating Clevinger for allegations of domestic violence and child abuse that included physical, verbal and emotional abuse toward the mother of Clevinger's daughter as well as his daughter.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Not on administrative leave

    Clevinger, who remains under MLB investigation after being accused of domestic violence in January, is eligible to participate in spring training, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

    With the White Sox having not placed Clevinger on administrative leave, he looks on track to report to spring training this week as he begins preparations for the 2023 season. The 32-year-old, who signed with Chicago this offseason, could be available to pitch until the league completes its investigation.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Under MLB investigation

    Clevinger is being investigated by MLB due to allegations of domestic violence and child abuse, Brittany Ghiroli and Katie Strang of The Athletic report.

    The allegations include physical, verbal and emotional abuse toward the mother of Clevinger's 10-month-old daughter. The White Sox were reportedly unaware of the allegations when they signed Clevinger to a one-year, $12 million deal in November. Details regarding a potential suspension for the righty have not yet been announced.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Links up with ChiSox

    Clevinger and the White Sox came to terms on a one-year contract Sunday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    The former Cleveland starter will make his way back to the American League Central after spending the past two and a half seasons on the West Coast after being acquired by the Padres at the 2020 trade deadline. Clevinger missed the entire 2021 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but he was cleared early in the 2022 campaign and staged a relatively smooth comeback from the procedure. Over 114 innings with the Friars, Clevinger compiled a 4.33 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 91:35 K:BB. Heading into his age-32 season, Clevinger should add some stability to the back end of an otherwise strong rotation that includes 2022 AL Cy Young Award runner-up Dylan Cease, Lance Lynn, Lucas Giolito and Michael Kopech (knee).

  • Padres' Mike Clevinger: Struggles in Game 4

    Clevinger was unable to record an out during Saturday's 10-6 loss to the Phillies in Game 4 of the NLCS, allowing three runs on three hits and one walk while striking out zero.

    Clevinger's rough postseason continued Saturday night as he was relieved by Nick Martinez without recording an out in the first inning. The 31-year-old Clevinger was given four runs by his offense in the top of the first, but a leadoff single followed by a Rhys Hoskins homer, a walk and a Bryce Harper RBI double was enough to knock him from the game. Clevinger has now surrendered seven runs across two postseason starts while recording only eight outs in total.

  • Padres' Mike Clevinger: Starting Game 1 of NLDS

    Clevinger (illness) will start Game 1 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Tuesday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

    Clevinger landed on the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday but was able to travel with the team for the NL Wild Card Series after testing negative for the virus. The right-hander was kept off the team's wild-card roster but will take the mound to begin the NLDS on Tuesday. Over his final six starts of the regular season, Clevinger posted a 6.52 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 29 innings.

  • Padres' Mike Clevinger: Not on wild-card roster

    Clevinger (illness) was left off the wild-card roster Friday, Kyle Glaser of Baseball America reports.

    Clevinger has been battling a non-COVID illness this week and will not be a part of the Padres' active roster as they take on the Mets in the wild-card round. The right-hander could join the active roster again if the Padres advance to the next round.

  • Padres' Mike Clevinger: Traveling to New York

    Clevinger (illness) tested negative for COVID-19 on Thursday and is traveling to New York to join the Padres ahead of Friday's wild-card game against the Mets, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

    Clevinger was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday, but he should be in the mix to be on the Padres' postseason roster now that he's tested negative. It's not yet clear whether the right-hander will be part of the team's playoff rotation, but he'll at least be an option to pitch as long as he continues to test negative.

  • Padres' Mike Clevinger: Not starting Wednesday

    Clevinger won't start Wednesday's game against the Giants as initially planned, with the Padres instead having Craig Stammen take the hill for the regular-season finale, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Considering Stammen hasn't covered more than two innings in any of his appearances in the majors or minors this season, he'll likely be serving as more of an opener than a traditional starter. The Padres haven't indicated that Clevinger will be available as a bulk reliever or if the team will rely on a cadre of bullpen arms to cover the remaining innings once Stammen exits.

  • Padres' Mike Clevinger: Goes on IL with illness

    The Padres placed Clevinger on the injured list Wednesday with an illness.

    San Diego didn't specify whether Clevinger was moved to the 15-day injured list or the COVID-19-related IL. If it's the latter, Clevinger would be eligible to return for the Padres' wild-card round series with the Mets, though it's unclear if he would have been included in the team's playoff rotation even if he hadn't fallen ill. Clevinger had been on track to start Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Giants, but that assignment will instead go to Craig Stammen. The 31-year-old righty will finish the regular season with a 7-7 record, 4.33 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 91:35 K:BB over 114.1 innings.
