Clevinger, who was optioned back to Triple-A after being called up as the 26th man for Saturday's doubleheader with the Twins, will return to start Thursday against the Orioles at Camden Yards, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Clevinger was pitching well before his start Saturday was cut short by rain. The decision to make Clevinger the 26th man for the doubleheader negates the 10-day timetable for a player to remain in the minors after being optioned, thereby giving the Cleveland bullpen more depth for a few days until his eventual return this week.
