Clevinger to miss 6-8 weeks after knee surgery

GOODYEAR, Ariz.—When Indians manager Terry Francona described Thursday how last year’s injuries caused his team to become more unified, he said, “We will deal with adversity. Every team does. It could start tomorrow.”

It turns out, his statement was not hypothetical.

The Indians announced Friday morning that starter Mike Clevinger sustained a partial tear in his left meniscus at the team’s Spring Training facility on Wednesday. He underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on Friday and is expected to return to Major League game activity in six to eight weeks.

Francona said that Clevinger suffered the tear while doing some drills on Wednesday. The training staff sent him home to see how he’d feel on Thursday, but the Tribe’s skipper said everyone had a strong feeling that it was a meniscus injury. Missing the start of the season is something that’s all too familiar for the right-hander, who landed on the injured list with an upper back strain after his second start last year.

High, hard: Indians’ Clevinger takes aim at cheating Astros

CLEVELAND (AP) — Indians pitcher Mike Clevinger doesn’t know exactly how he’ll react the next time he’s on the mound facing the Houston Astros.

They cheated, and he doesn’t like cheaters. On Friday night, he took aim at them.

“We’ll see,” he said. “It’ll be fun.”

Clevinger has been one of the most outspoken critics of the Astros since their sign-stealing scandal broke earlier this month and rocked baseball, leading to suspensions, managerial firings in Houston, Boston and New York, and blanketing the sport in a net of suspicion as spring training approaches.

Note to self: Remember to pay attention to the HBP statistics in the American League this coming season- aspects of them could be interesting…...
