Cleveland's Mike Clevinger earns a spot in the starting rotation
Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona has named pitcher Mike Clevinger to the team's starting rotation for 2018.
With Danny Salazar not expected to be ready for Opening Day, the Indians had two openings in the rotation behind Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, and Trevor Bauer. After a strong performance on Monday against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Clevinger has snagged the fourth spot with Ryan Merrit and Josh Tomlin battling for the final slot.
Clevinger posted a 4.05 xFIP, 4.24 SIERA, and 137 strikeouts in 121 1/3 innings pitched in 21 starts in 2017.
