Indians starter Mike Clevinger will pitch Wednesday for the first time since breaking team and Major League Baseball's COVID-19 protocols and being demoted for 10 days.
The Cleveland Indians placed starters Mike Clevinger and Zach Plesac on the restricted list after the pitchers broke team rules by leaving their hotel in Chicago and risking exposure to the coronavirus.
The Cleveland Indians have placed pitcher Mike Clevinger on the 10-day injured list because of a sprained left ankle. He twisted the ankle while coming off the mound to cover first base in the second inning against Texas. He was making his first start since April 7 when he strained a back muscle. The Indians have been dealing with injuries to their rotation most of the season.
The right-hander, whose season seemed in jeopardy when he strained a muscle in his upper back on April 7, will start Monday when Cleveland opens a four-game series at Texas.
Mike Clevinger’s comeback is speeding along like one of his fastballs. Cleveland’s starting pitcher has made startling progress from an upper back strain that threatened his season and was expected to sideline him for several months. But the right-hander, who wasn’t expected to be able to pick up a ball for at least two months, will throw his second bullpen session on Friday. He got back on the mound last week in Chicago, throwing 20 pitches.
With the March 28 opener quickly approaching, Indians manager Terry Francona still hasn’t announced who will start Cleveland’s first game or how he’ll line up his rotation for early in the season. The Indians toyed with trading ace Corey Kluber and All-Star Trevor Bauer this winter. But they held onto the two right-handers who form the backbone of one of baseball’s best starting staffs.
