Contrary to prior reports, Clevinger will not be the starting pitcher for Tuesday's ALCS matchup against the Blue Jays.

Clevinger was originally slated to take the mound Tuesday at the Rogers Centre, but it seems manager Terry Francona had a change of heart and decided to deploy Ryan Merritt instead. This means that the right-hander will head back to the bullpen to be used in long-relief situations, likely for the duration of the series.
