  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Expected back Friday

    Clevinger (wrist) is expected to return from the 15-day injured list to start Friday's series opener versus the Tigers at Guaranteed Rate Field, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Jesse Scholtens had been serving as the White Sox's No. 5 starter since Clevinger landed on the IL on May 21, but manager Pedro Grifol's decision to use Scholtens in long relief behind Lance Lynn in Wednesday's loss to the Angels signals that Clevinger is on track to be activated this weekend. Since Clevinger tossed a simulated game Monday, Grifol acknowledged that he may look to shave about 10 pitches off the right-hander's normal workload if he does in fact get the green light to start Friday on three days' rest.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Tosses sim game

    Clevinger (wrist) tossed a simulated game Monday in Chicago, reports.

    Per James Fegan of The Athletic, White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said that Clevinger could be activated from the 15-day injured list before the team's homestand comes to an end this weekend, and the right-hander's ability to face hitters Monday seemingly supports Hahn's claim. Clevinger will presumably throw a bullpen session Wednesday or Thursday before the White Sox determine whether he's fit to return from the jammed right wrist he suffered in his May 17 start versus Cleveland, or if he'll require another simulated game or a minor-league rehab start prior to being activated. If the White Sox decide to give Clevinger more time to heal up, Jesse Scholtens would likely be in store for another turn through the rotation this weekend versus the Tigers.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Throwing bullpen session Saturday

    Clevinger (wrist) is slated to throw a bullpen session Saturday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    If it goes well, he'll throw a live batting practice session a couple days after that. The goal is for Clevinger to skip a rehab assignment and be activated from the IL when first eligible June 2 to start against the Tigers. He's been dealing with right wrist inflammation.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Thinks it will be minimum IL stay

    Clevinger (wrist) believes he'll be able to return following a minimum stay on the 15-day injured list, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Right wrist inflammation landed Clevinger on the IL over the weekend, and the pitcher believes his new gyro slider could have contributed to the injury. He wants to keep throwing the pitch, so Clevinger will work on strengthening his wrist while he's sidelined.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Lands on injured list

    Clevinger was placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday with right wrist inflammation, retroactive to May 18.

    The veteran right-hander was scheduled to start Monday at Minnesota but will now be sidelined for at least the next couple weeks with the wrist issue. The severity of the injury is unclear, so it remains to be seen if Clevinger will have a chance of being reinstated when first eligible in early June.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Picks up third win

    Clevinger (3-3) earned the win Wednesday over the Guardians. He allowed two runs on six hits and four walks while striking out five over six innings.

    Clevinger won his first two starts of the year, then went six outings without a victory before snapping the skid Wednesday. This was his third quality start of the season, but the 10 baserunners he allowed matched a season high. He's had fairly mixed results so far with a 4.56 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 40:22 K:BB across 47.1 innings this season. Clevinger is projected to get another start against his former team next week in Cleveland.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Tosses quality start Thursday

    Clevinger pitched six innings against Kansas City on Thursday, allowing three runs on three hits and two walks. He struck out two batters and did not factor in the decision.

    Clevinger allowed just three hits in the contest, but two went for extra bases, with a solo homer and a two-run double accounting for all the scoring against him. The right-hander otherwise put together a solid performance, finishing with his second quality start of the campaign. Clevinger continues to be in enigma in terms of strikeouts -- he's now fanned three or fewer batters in half of his eight starts, though he's racked up seven or more punchouts in three of the other four outings. That's part of a pattern of overall inconsistency from the veteran that has led to mostly uninspiring numbers this season, including a 4.79 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 35:18 K:BB over 41.1 frames.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Picks up third loss

    Clevinger (2-3) took the loss Saturday, allowing four runs on six hits and one walk over six innings against Cincinnati. He struck out seven.

    Outside of a three-run home run by TJ Friedl in the fifth, Clevinger exited Saturday's start relatively unscathed, striking out seven and handing out only one free pass. He was unable to keep control of the basepaths, giving up a pair of steals to Jonathan India in separate innings. Clevinger has cooled off after a strong start to the season, giving up 15 runs and six homers over his last four starts while taking the loss three times. Though Clevinger posted a 12.07 K/9 in 2019, he has yet to return to his previous form after suffering a torn meniscus in 2020. However, Clevinger remains a player worth monitoring moving forward in case he finds his groove.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Strikes out eight in no-decision

    Clevinger allowed two runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out eight over five innings against the Rays on Sunday. He did not factor into the decision.

    Clevinger delivered one of his better performances of the early season Sunday after he was knocked around for six runs his last time out. The 32-year-old was taken deep on back-to-back at-bats from Taylor Walls and Luke Raley in the fourth but otherwise did not face much pressure on the bases and tied a season high with eight strikeouts. Clevinger has now given up five home runs over this last three starts after not allowing any in his three outings of the year and has managed to complete six innings just once. He now holds a 4.60 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 26:15 K:BB over 29.1 innings and lines up to face the Reds in Cincinnati next weekend.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Hit hard by Blue Jays

    Clevinger (2-2) took the loss Tuesday, allowing six runs on seven hits and three walks over five innings against the Blue Jays. He struck out three.

    Clevinger struggled to keep one of MLB's top offenses off the scoreboard, giving up six runs in the first four innings while failing to record a clean inning until his fifth and final frame. Danny Jansen started the offensive explosion, hitting a three-run home run in the second inning while plating Brandon Belt and Matt Chapman. Clevinger holds a 4.81 ERA and 1.60 WHIP through five starts and is on pace to regress in strikeouts for the third consecutive year, currently sporting a 6.66 K/9.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Pulled after three innings

    Clevinger (2-1) was the pitcher of record in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Phillies, allowing three runs on six hits and one walk while striking out one batter over three innings.

    Clevinger allowed a run in each of his three frames, including solo home runs to Trea Turner and Brandon Marsh. The veteran right-hander was at 75 pitches after getting through the third, and he was replaced by Tanner Banks to start the fourth. Per James Fegan of The Athletic, White Sox manager Pedro Grifol clarified after the game that Clevinger wasn't dealing with any physical concerns Wednesday, but the skipper was reluctant to let the 32-year-old continue after he amassed 44 pitches alone in the taxing third inning. Clevinger has been a hit-or-miss performer this season, posting 13 strikeouts over 11 scoreless innings in two of his starts while serving up seven runs with just two strikeouts in 8.1 innings across his other two outings.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Six scoreless in no-decision

    Clevinger did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing zero runs on one hit and five walks over six innings during a 6-3 loss to the Orioles. He struck out five.

    Clevinger was able to work around his control issues and minimize hard contact en route to his second scoreless outing of the season, but he lost out on an opportunity to secure a third straight win after Baltimore struck for four runs in the seventh inning off Chicago's bullpen. Through three outings (16.1 innings), Clevinger sports a 14:10 K:BB and a 2.20 ERA. His next outing is tentatively scheduled for next week's three-game set with Philadelphia.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Powered to second win

    Clevinger (2-0) picked up the win Saturday, giving up four runs on eight hits and two walks over 5.1 innings in an 11-5 victory over the Pirates. He struck out one.

    It was far from a pretty performance by the right-hander, who managed only four swinging strikes among his 88 pitches, but the Chicago offense gave him more than enough support. Clevinger's 3.48 ERA isn't reflected in his 1.55 WHIP or 9:5 K:BB through 10.1 innings, but he'll look to make it three wins in a row to begin his White Sox tenure when he next takes the mound, likely next weekend at home against the Orioles.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Tosses five shutout frames in win

    Clevinger (1-0) had eight strikeouts over five scoreless innings to earn the win Sunday at Houston. He allowed three hits and three walks.

    The veteran right-hander delivered 60 of his 98 pitches for strikes and held the Astros without an extra-base hit. Clevinger still has some work to do on his early season command, as he plunked two batters in addition to the three walks, but it was still a strong start to the campaign. He lines up for a favorable matchup against the Pirates on the road next weekend.
