  • Clevinger (1-0) got the win Tuesday after pitching five scoreless innings, giving up one hit while striking out five batters against the Phillies. Clevinger limited the damage against him to just one hit, a single by Alec Bohm in the fourth frame, while snagging his first win of the year. The five innings were his longest since he made his season debut May 5 following a knee injury. It was the 31-year-old's first start this season where he didn't walk a batter. Through three starts, he has posted a 3.21 ERA and 1.14 WHIP with 15 strikeouts in 14 frames. Clevinger tentatively projects to take the mound again Sunday in San Francisco.

  • Clevinger didn't factor into the decision during Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Cubs, allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks with six strikeouts in 4.1 innings. Clevinger put multiple runners on base in every inning except the fourth, with the big blow coming on an Alfonso Rivas two-run shot in the third. That's now two starts surrendering three runs and going fewer than five innings to open 2022, as the 31-year-old has now allowed five runs on 10 hits and five walks with 10 strikeouts in nine innings. The one positive has been pitch count as Clevinger has exceeded 90 pitches in both outings and appears to be fully recovered from his knee injury. With San Diego employing a six-man rotation, Clevinger isn't scheduled to pitch again until next week against Philadelphia.

  • Clevinger (knee) didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Guardians in Game 1 of a doubleheader after striking out four over 4.2 innings in his return from the 10-day injured list. He gave up three earned runs on four hits and three walks. Facing off against his former organization, the right-hander was making his first appearance for the Padres since the 2020 playoffs after he was sidelined for the entire 2021 campaign following Tommy John surgery and the first month of the 2022 season due to a sprained knee. Clevinger didn't face any major restrictions in his first start with the big club, as he was lifted after tossing 95 pitches. The 31-year-old's excellent body of work in the majors makes him an interesting speculative pickup in shallower leagues where he might still be available, but he could need a few starts to sharpen his command and control coming off a lengthy layoff from game action. He threw only 54 of his 95 pitches for strikes Wednesday.

  • Clevinger won't get to make his season debut Tuesday against the Guardians as expected, as the game has been postponed due to rain, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Clevinger was finally ready to go after returning from Tommy John surgery and a knee sprain, but he'll have to wait just a bit longer. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Wednesday, with Clevinger slated to start the first game of the day, according to Chris Assenheimer of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram.

  • The Padres will bring Clevinger (knee) back from the 10-day injured list to have him start Tuesday's game in Cleveland, Bill Center of MLB.com reports. Clevinger will return to his old stomping grounds at Progressive Field for his 2022 debut with the Padres after he opened the season on the injured list due to a sprained right knee. After building up to 3.2 innings and 67 pitches in his third and final rehab start for Triple-A El Paso on April 27, Clevinger could be capped at around 4-to-5 innings Tuesday. The appearance in Cleveland will mark Clevinger's first with the big club since the 2020 postseason, as he was sidelined for the entire 2021 campaign while recovering from Tommy John surgery.
