Cleavinger (2-3) earned the win over Arizona on Sunday, pitching 1.1 scoreless innings and allowing one hit while striking out one. Starter Tony Gonsolin (shoulder) was effective but held to only 46 pitches over 3.2 innings in the outing, giving Cleavinger the opportunity to scoop up the win after entering with the Dodgers ahead 7-1. He threw 13 of 18 pitches for strikes and held the Diamondbacks to a harmless single. Cleavinger has pitched primarily in low-leverage situation this season, but he has been effective, posting a 3.24 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 12:5 K:BB across 8.1 frames.
Cleavinger (forearm) was activated off the injured list Thursday. Cleavinger has made eight big-league appearances this season, posting a 4.50 ERA and 2.00 WHIP over six innings of relief. He'd been sidelined nearly a month with left forearm inflammation but is now ready to give the Dodgers an additional left-handed option in the bullpen. Luke Raley was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding move.
Cleavinger (forearm) tossed a scoreless inning Monday for Triple-A Oklahoma City in the first outing of his rehab assignment. He gave up no hits, walked one and struck out one during the 11-pitch appearance. Cleavinger took part in his first game action since May 15 after left forearm inflammation had sidelined him for the past three weeks. The 27-year-old isn't considered a major piece of the Los Angeles bullpen, so he could make several more appearances for Oklahoma City before being reinstated from the 10-day injured list.
Cleavinger (forearm) recently tossed a bullpen session, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports. Cleavinger hasn't pitched since May 15 and hit the injured list May 18 with left forearm irritation. He is currently rehabbing at the team's training facility in Arizona. The left-hander is expected to go on a rehab assignment of at least one week when he is ready to pitch in games.
Cleavinger (1-3) earned the win over Seattle on Tuesday, pitching a perfect inning in relief and registering two strikeouts. Cleavinger has taken a few tough losses this season -- twice he has given up the winning run in extra innings after starting his frame with a runner at second base -- so it was fitting that the Dodgers mounted a comeback that resulted in his first win Tuesday. The southpaw certainly did his part to earn the victory, striking out a pair in the eighth inning while keeping the team within a run. Cleavinger has a 5.06 ERA across 5.1 innings but has managed a solid 9:3 K:BB.
