  • Previewing The 2023-24 Free Agent Class: Starting Pitcher

    Headshot for A.J. Alexy

    We've been covering the upcoming free agent class at MLBTR, going through each of the non-pitching positions. But now it’s time to take the mound, beginning with the starters. Though it can be debated whether there’s a true ace in the mix, there’s plenty of arms here that would upgrade the rotation of any team.…

  • Mike Clevinger Clears Waivers

    Headshot for Mike Clevinger

    Right-hander Mike Clevinger has cleared waivers, reports Jesse Rogers of ESPN. He was available to any club willing to take on the remainder of his contract but they have all passed and he will stay with the White Sox. Clevinger, 32, was one of several veteran players that was placed on waivers this week. With…

  • Mike Clevinger Placed On Waivers

    Headshot for Mike Clevinger

    Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Mike Clevinger has been placed on waivers. The 32-year-old has been surprisingly solid for the South Siders this season. He holds a 3.32 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and a 85/38 K/BB ratio through 97 2/3 innings this season. The White Sox are not playing for anything, so they've decided to move on from Clevinger and try and get some salary relief. The right-hander should certainly have plenty of interest from contending teams. Clevinger signed a one-year deal with the White Sox this offseason and is set for a nice payday this winter.

  • White Sox Select Edgar Navarro, Activate Mike Clevinger

    Headshot for Mike Clevinger

    The White Sox announced they’ve selected reliever Edgar Navarro onto the major league roster. Chicago also reinstated Mike Clevinger from the 15-day injured list. Navarro, 25, gets his first major league call. The Venezuela native signed with Chicago as an amateur free agent late, beginning his professional career at age 20. (Most Latin American amateurs sign at…

  • Mike Clevinger Activated, Starting On Saturday

    Headshot for Mike Clevinger

    Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Mike Clevinger (biceps) has been activated from the 15-day injured list on Saturday. Clevinger is set to make his first start since June 14 due to a biceps injury. The right-hander will take the ball versus the Cleveland Guardians on Saturday, which might be his last start with Chicago. The assumption is that Chicago will attempt to move the soon to be a free agent at the trade deadline. Clevinger holds a 3.88 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and 53/26 K/BB in 12 starts this season.

  • Mike Clevinger Likely To Start On Saturday

    Headshot for Mike Clevinger

    Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Mike Clevinger (biceps) is expected to make his return to the mound against the Cleveland Guardians on Saturday. The right-hander has been out since the middle of June due to a right biceps injury. He was able to throw a simulated earlier this week, so it sounds like he'll be ready to pitch soon. The 32-year-old holds a 3.88 ERA and 1.36 WHIP with 53 strikeouts over 12 starts this season. The White Sox are likely trying to get Clevinger back on the mound before the trade deadline to help increase his value.

  • Mike Clevinger Throws Two-Inning Simulated Game

    Headshot for Mike Clevinger

    Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Mike Clevinger (biceps) was able to throw a two inning simulated game on Saturday. The organization hasn't said what the next step in the recovery process is for Clevinger. The right-hander has been working his way back from right biceps soreness since mid-June. It seems likely that Clevinger is going to require at least one minor league rehab start. He holds a 3.88 ERA and 1.36 WHIP with 53 strikeouts over 12 starts this season.

  • Reds Have Shown Interest In White Sox's Starters

    Headshot for Dylan Cease

    The Reds have been in contact with the White Sox as they search for rotation help, reports Jon Morosi of MLB.com (on Threads). Specific targets aren’t reported, though it’s not hard to infer which players could be of interest. Lucas Giolito is arguably the sport’s most apparent trade candidate. The right-hander is an impending free…

  • Liam Hendriks, Mike Clevinger Toss Bullpen Sessions On Saturday

    Headshot for Mike Clevinger

    Chicago White Sox right-handed pitchers Liam Hendriks (elbow) and Mike Clevinger (biceps) were both able to get in bullpen sessions ahead of Saturday's game versus the St. Louis Cardinals. Hendriks has been downed with right elbow inflammation since June 10. It remains unclear if the 34-year-old needs a rehab assignment before returning, but fantasy managers could reasonably expect him back before the end of the month at this rate. Hendriks should be Chicago's favorite for saves upon his return. Clevinger was shelved by right biceps inflammation on June 15. The 32-year-old may not require a rehab assignment, either, so managers could perhaps see him back by the end of July, too. Clevinger holds a 3.88 ERA and 1.36 WHIP with 53 strikeouts over 62 2/3 innings this year, making him more of a lukewarm stash.

  • Mike Clevinger Likely To Return In Late July

    Headshot for Mike Clevinger

    Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Mike Clevinger (biceps) is hopeful to get back on the field soon. Manager Pedro Grifol announced that Clevinger could return during the first or second trip through the rotation after the All-Star break. At the moment, it's unclear if the White Sox plan on having Clevinger go through a minor league rehab assignment. He has been sidelined since mid-June due to soreness in his biceps. Before that, Clevinger posted a 3.88 ERA, 1.36 WHIP through 12 starts with the White Sox. He'll likely be back in late July given the timetable from Grifol.
