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.

White Sox bolster rotation with Clevinger

The White Sox needed a fifth starter to complete an already solid starting rotation, and in adding right-hander Mike Clevinger, they brought in a talent with a chance to make this front five elite.

Clevinger and the White Sox agreed to a free-agent deal, a source confirmed to MLB.com on Sunday. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic was the first to report the signing, which is pending a physical. The White Sox have not commented on the potential deal.

MLB Network’s Jon Paul Morosi reports the deal is for one guaranteed year at more than $8 million. Clevinger joins Dylan Cease, Lance Lynn, Lucas Giolito and Michael Kopech, with Clevinger taking the rotation spot of Johnny Cueto, who became a free agent after showing himself as one of the American League’s most consistent starters in ’22.
