White Sox pitcher Mike Clevinger under investigation for alleged domestic violence, child abuse, per report

Major League Baseball is investigating Chicago White Sox pitcher Mike Clevinger following allegations of domestic violence and child abuse from the mother of his 10-month-old daughter, reports The Athletic. The woman, 24-year-old Olivia Finestead, publicly disclosed the allegations on Instagram on Tuesday.

Here are more details, via The Athletic:

According to Finestead, she has detailed to those investigators incidents of physical, verbal and emotional abuse, including an incident from last June in which Finestead said Clevinger choked her, and another about two weeks later when she said Clevinger slapped her in a hotel room when the team was playing the Dodgers and threw used chewing tobacco on their child. 

A source familiar with MLB’s investigation process confirmed there is an open investigation on Clevinger. The source added that the White Sox became aware of the allegations after he was signed.
