The Chicago White Sox have signed free agent pitcher Mike Clevinger. Official terms of the agreement have not been disclosed yet.
The agreement is pending a physical.
Clevinger could take the place in the rotation that Johnny Cueto had. Cueto is a free agent.
This is Clevinger’s third team in his career. He spent parts of three seasons with the San Diego Padres.
He pitched for the Padres in 2020 after a trade with the Cleveland Guardians. Clevinger was forced to miss the entire 2021 season due to Tommy John surgery.
After a length recovery process, Clevinger returned this past season. He returned on May 4th against the Guardians.
He went 7-7 in 22 starts this past season. Clevinger had a 4.33 ERA in 114 1/3 innings.
In six MLB seasons, Clevinger has gone 51-30 with the Guardians and Padres. He also has two complete games and two shutouts in 656 2/3rd innings.
According to RosterResource.com, Clevinger is expected to be the fourth starter for the White Sox. Dylan Cease, Lance Lynn, and Lucas Giolito are ahead of him in the rotation.
Clevinger is the only starter for the White Sox, who was added through free agency. Cease, Lynn, Giolito, and their fifth-starter Michael Kopech were all acquired in trades, according to RosterResource.com.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved.
