Player Outlook
Mike Clevinger was a legitimate upper-tier fantasy starter between 2018-20, registering a combined 2.91 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 416 strikeouts in 367.2 innings (61 starts) between Cleveland and San Diego. Then came a run of injuries, including Tommy John elbow surgery, and now he's only a semi-attractive streaming consideration in standard mixed leagues as he enters his age-33 campaign. Clevinger was posting strikeout percentages in the 27-33 range at his peak, but that number finished at 18.8 percent in 2022 and 20.0 percent in 2023. His fastball did come back to life a bit last year in Chicago and he put up a respectable 3.77 ERA and 1.23 WHIP across 24 outings, but the right-hander struggles with durability, doesn't miss enough bats and is too prone to blowups at this point in his career.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Next rehab start scheduled

    Clevinger (elbow) will make another rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Tuesday will mark Clevinger's fifth rehab start in Triple-A, and it will be his third start since neck stiffness forced him to pause his assignment in late June. Manager Pedro Grifol said the team still hasn't decided if the 33-year-old will require an additional rehab outing, though how Clevinger performs Tuesday will likely affect that decision. Across his four starts, Clevinger has surrendered 10 earned runs in 14.1 innings while striking out 13 batters and walking four.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Hits four innings in rehab start

    Clevinger (elbow/neck) struck out three over four innings in his rehab start Sunday with Triple-A Charlotte, giving up one earned run on three hits and one walk. Clevinger tossed 51 pitches (35 strikes) in his fourth rehab outing with Charlotte and his second since he resumed his assignment after he was briefly shut down with neck stiffness. The White Sox will reassess Clevinger on Monday before determining what's next for him. Considering that manager Pedro Grifol told MLB.com on Friday that the right-hander was "a ways away from taking the ball and going six innings," it's possible the White Sox will want Clevinger to increase his pitch count in one more rehab start with Charlotte before he returns from the 15-day injured list. Clevinger was initially placed on the shelf May 28 with right elbow inflammation.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Set for another rehab outing

    Clevinger (elbow) will make another rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday, MLB.com reports. The White Sox had considered bringing Clevinger back before he was fully built up, though they'll opt to give him a second start on his most recent rehab assignment. He'll remain on the injured list through the All-Star break at least, and the team has not committed to immediately activating him when games start back up.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Could be built back up in majors

    White Sox manager Pedro Grifol said Wednesday that Clevinger (elbow) could return from the 15-day injured list for his next outing, even though he's not fully stretched out for a typical starter's workload, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports. Clevinger needed 61 pitches to cover 2.2 innings in his third rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday, yielding two runs with a 5:1 K:BB in the process. Even though he doesn't appear ready for a full workload just yet, Clevinger could start for the White Sox as soon as Sunday, as long as he recovers well from Tuesday's outing. Clevinger has been out since late May with right elbow inflammation and more recently a stiff neck. He holds a 6.75 ERA in four starts with the big club this season.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Slated for rehab start Tuesday

    Clevinger (elbow/neck) will make a rehab start for Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Clevinger was originally scheduled to make another rehab start with Charlotte on Saturday, but that contest was rained out. Despite allowing seven runs over his last two outings spanning 7.2 innings, the 33-year-old right-hander appears close to returning to Chicago's rotation. Clevinger landed on the injured list May 28 due to right elbow inflammation, and his rehab program was paused in late June due to neck stiffness. He started in four games for the White Sox before landing on the IL, going 0-3 with a 6.75 ERA and 1.94 WHIP across 16 innings.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Next step undetermined

    The White Sox are still deciding on Clevinger's (elbow/neck) next step after a rainout Saturday prevented him from making his scheduled rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte, MLB.com reports. "This little break and the cortisone shot and now I don't have to worry about that anymore," Clevinger said Monday. "I'm hopeful this is going to be the last one of these things." Clevinger had already made a pair of rehab starts for Charlotte on June 18 and 23, covering 7.2 innings between those outings while allowing seven earned runs on 11 hits and two walks. Despite the poor results, Clevinger had seemingly been encouraged by how he was coming along in his recovery from right elbow inflammation and a stiff neck, but his inability to make a third rehab start this weekend looks as though it'll push back his potential return from the 15-day injured list. Rather than having Clevinger make another rehab start, the White Sox could opt to have the right-hander throw a simulated game or live batting practice session in Chicago instead. If that's the case, Clevinger could still have an outside chance at rejoining the big-league rotation for this weekend's home series versus the Pirates.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Rehab paused due to stiff neck

    Clevinger's (elbow) next rehab start has been pushed back to next week due to neck stiffness, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports. Clevinger last pitched with Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday, when he allowed five runs and threw 71 pitches over 4.2 innings. The White Sox are hopeful that he will need just one more rehab start before rejoining their rotation, although that will be dependent on how he looks and feels. Clevinger is targeting 70-to-80 pitches in next week's rehab start.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Needs another rehab start

    White Sox manager Pedro Grifol said Wednesday that Clevinger (elbow) will make another rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.comreports. The veteran right-hander threw 71 pitchers over 4.2 innings during his third rehab outing Sunday, and he'll continue building up his workload at Triple-A. Assuming that next outing goes well, Clevinger could step into Chicago's rotation during the first week of July.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Reaches fifth inning in rehab start

    Clevinger (elbow) covered 4.2 innings in his rehab start Sunday with Triple-A Charlotte, striking out two while giving up five earned runs on seven hits and one walk. Making his second rehab start with Charlotte, Clevinger spotted 48 of his 71 pitches for strikes and faced off against 22 hitters. While Clevinger was knocked around a bit by Gwinnett and allowed three extra-base hits, at least from a workload standpoint, he looks ready to return from the 15-day injured list. He could be activated later this week to rejoin the White Sox rotation during their three-game home series versus the Rockies.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Two rehab starts required

    Clevinger (elbow) is expected to make two starts at Triple-A Charlotte before returning to the White Sox during a seven-game homestand that begins June 24, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports. Clevinger is lined up for starts with Charlotte on Tuesday and June 23 and is expected to join the White Sox in the days after his June 23 outing. The 33-year-old was placed on the IL with right elbow inflammation May 28 but has been facing batters since June 7. Once healthy, Clevinger could knock Jonathan Cannon or Drew Thorpe out of the rotation.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Will throw BP

    Clevinger (elbow) will throw batting practice Friday and willeventually require a rehab start or two, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports. Clevinger was placed on the 15-day injured list May 28 with right elbow inflammation. The 33-year-old had a late start to the season, making his White Sox debut near the beginning of May, and he is due for more time away from the majors as he builds himself back up.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Stuck with second loss

    Clevinger (0-2) took the loss Friday, giving up three runs on five hits and two walks over 4.2 innings as the White Sox were downed 4-2 by the Yankees. He struck out five. The right-hander tossed 78 pitches (47 strikes) before exiting, failing to complete five innings for the third straight start since joining Chicago's rotation. Clevinger offers little fantasy appeal until he at least begins lasting long enough to qualify for a win, although the White Sox's struggling offense won't give him many opportunities for wins anyway. Clevinger will take a 5.56 ERA, 1.85 WHIP and 10:6 K:BB through 11.1 innings into his next outing, which lines up to come next week in Toronto.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Shelled in season debut

    Clevinger (0-1) took the loss Monday, allowing four runs (three earned) on six hits and four walks over two innings against Tampa Bay. He had no strikeouts. Clevinger looked rough in his season debut Monday against the Rays, generating just one whiff from his 54 pitches. It was the second time he has failed to generate a strikeout in a start during his eight-year career -- first done Sept. 24, 2023 against Boston. Clevinger's next start is scheduled against his former team, Cleveland, at home this weekend.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Making second rehab start

    Clevinger is making a rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. The right-hander threw 60 pitches over 3.1 innings during his first rehab outing Thursday and is expected to build up to around 75 pitches Tuesday. Assuming everything goes well, Clevinger could join the White Sox for his season debut early next week.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Throws 60 pitches

    Clevinger allowed one earned run on four hits and two walks while striking out three across 3.1 innings Thursday with Triple-A Charlotte, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Clevinger is ramping up his workload after signing with the White Sox a few days after the season began. He threw 60 pitches in his appearance Thursday and will increase his workload to 75 pitches in his next outing, which will also come with Charlotte. Assuming all goes well, Clevinger's third appearance of the campaign will come in the majors -- setting him up to debut around May 5.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Making first rehab start Thursday

    Clevinger will make a rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday against Lehigh Valley, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Clevinger will be making his first start with a minor-league affiliate, as he has been pitching in extended spring training games after re-signing with the White Sox on a one-year deal April 2. Manager Pedro Grifol said Thursday that Clevinger will throw four innings and/or 60 pitches in his first start with Charlotte and then progress to five innings and/or 75 pitches in his next outing. Clevinger could be ready to join the White Sox's rotation after that, setting him up for his season debut as soon as May 5 in St. Louis.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: 'On schedule' for May debut

    White Sox manager Pedro Grifol said Saturday that Clevinger remains "on schedule" to join the big club at the beginning of May, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. "Throwing the ball really good, he feels good, so he's on pace," Grifol said of Clevinger. "He's been in game action, yeah." After he didn't sign a one-year deal with the White Sox until April 2 -- just under a week after the regular season began -- Clevinger has been going through his own version of spring training at the organization's complex in Arizona. The White Sox have yet to assign Clevinger to a minor-league affiliate for a rehab assignment, as it seems as though the organization is content to have him get ramped up in simulated games at extended spring training. More details regarding when Clevinger might be ready to make his White Sox debut could come during the upcoming week, but for now, the expectation remains that he'll be cleared to make his first start in the first or second week of May.

  • Mike Clevinger: ChiSox mulling reunion

    The White Sox are having internal discussions about signing Clevinger, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. The White Sox are also reportedly in on Michael Lorenzen as they seek much-needed rotation reinforcements following the trade of Dylan Cease and move of Michael Kopech to the bullpen. Clevinger had a solid 2023 campaign with the White Sox, holding a 3.77 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 110:40 K:BB over 131.1 innings.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Possible waiver wire pickups

    I didn't include Clevinger in my 15 Pickups for Championship Week, but maybe I should have given how he performed Wednesday against the Royals, striking out seven while allowing just two earned runs in six innings. The deeper you dig, the more impressive it looks. He had 12 swinging strikes on just 82 pitches. His average exit velocity was just 79.7 mph. More importantly, it was his third start in four of that caliber, yielding a combined 1.35 ERA, 0.60 WHIP and 10.8 K/9 with an 18 percent swinging-strike rate. Awesome stuff! Here's the rub: the one bad start during that four-start stretch was an eight-run, 12-hit disaster. So can we really trust him over the final two weeks? Well, he lines up for two starts next week, the first being against the Nationals. There's risk for sure, but the occasional eight-run implosion has been standard fare among the starting pitcher ranks this year.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Rebounds against Tigers

    Clevinger (7-7) earned the win Friday, allowing three hits and zero walks over seven scoreless innings against Detroit. He struck out seven. Clevinger's one bit of trouble came in the second inning, when he allowed an infield single and a double sandwiched around a double play. He only allowed a single and a hit batter the rest of the way. This was a nice rebound from last weekend's matchup with the Tigers in which he allowed eight runs over four innings. He had been posting strong numbers from the start of June through August, allowing only 12 runs in 50.1 innings (2.15 ERA). Clevinger will take a 3.64 ERA into his next outing, likely to take place in a mid-week matchup at home against Kansas City.
