  • Mike Clevinger Expected To Join Team Around May 1

    Headshot for Mike Clevinger

    Chicago White Sox general manager Chris Getz said that the expectation is to have right-hander Mike Clevinger in uniform around May 1. The White Sox officially announced the signing of Clevinger to a one-year, $3 million deal on Thursday. They optioned him to the Arizona Complex League so that he can build up his arm. When he's ready, the 33-year-old veteran will slot into Chicago's starting rotation as their No. 5 starter. But until then, it appears the team will go with a bullpen game every fifth day. The former fourth-round pick of the Los Angeles Angels in 2011 went 9-9 for the Pale Hose in 2023 with a 3.77 ERA and 1.23 WHIP with 40 walks and 110 strikeouts in 131 1/3 innings over 24 starts. Clevinger is no longer an upper-tier fantasy starter like he was with Cleveland due to durability and consistency issues, but he'll be in play as a matchup-based streamer and as rotation depth in AL-only leagues.

  • Mike Clevinger Agrees With White Sox

    Headshot for Mike Clevinger

    Free-agent right-hander Mike Clevinger and the Chicago White Sox have agreed on an undisclosed contract on Monday, pending a physical, according to a source familiar with the deal. Clevinger will return to Chicago after going 9-9 with a 3.77 ERA (4.28 FIP) and 1.23 WHIP with 40 walks and 110 strikeouts in 131 1/3 innings over 24 starts for the team last year. The 33-year-old veteran will be a much-needed addition to a White Sox's starting rotation that was thinned out when they traded Dylan Cease to the San Diego Padres and moved right-hander Michael Kopech to the bullpen this spring. Clevinger hasn't been the same pitcher after going Tommy John surgery and won't have much of an offense backing him for fantasy purposes, but he can still be a useful matchup-based streamer in the right matchups and in the weak American League Central.

  • White Sox Discussing Potential Reunion With Mike Clevinger

    Headshot for Mike Clevinger

    Now that the Chicago White Sox have traded right-hander Dylan Cease and moved right-hander Michael Kopech to the bullpen, they are internally discussing the possibility of re-signing right-hander Mike Clevinger. The 33-year-old veteran was the team's most consistent starter last year, believe it or not, going 9-9 with a 3.77 ERA (4.28 FIP) and 1.23 WHIP with 40 walks and 110 strikeouts in 131 1/3 innings pitched over 24 starts. In addition to Clevinger, the White Sox are kicking the tires on right-hander Michael Lorenzen as they search for rotation help in 2024. Although Clevinger was solid for the Pale Hose in 2023, he hasn't been the same upper-tier fantasy arm since having Tommy John surgery in 2021. His strikeout rate has dropped considerably, merely making him a matchup-based streaming option in mixed fantasy leagues.

  • Mets Looking At Michael Lorenzen, Other Pitchers

    Headshot for Mike Clevinger

    The New York Mets have recently checked in on free-agent starting pitchers, including right-hander Michael Lorenzen, according to league sources. However, the communication likely reflects a desire to stay connected if they have another injury rather than imminent, serious interest. New York's top starter, Kodai Senga, has already been shut down for three weeks due to a strain in the back of his shoulder. FanGraphs projects the Mets to have the sixth-worst rotation in the majors, so adding more pitching depth would be a good idea. They are banking on a bounce-back from Luis Severino and steps forward from Sean Manaea and Tylor Megill. Other options to beef up the rotation besides Lorenzen include lefties Blake Snell and Jordan Montgomery and righty Mike Clevinger.
