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.
