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.

Clevinger could be a really good #5.

If he velo comes back. He was pretty hittable last year. There's an adage that it's the year after the year you come back from TJ surgery that you really recover, is that really true?

Yeah, the first season after TJ is sort of a write-off. But what concerns me is that Clevinger was good in the first half (3.13 ERA and 3.61 FIP through his first 11 starts, not unlike his previous performance) and then completely fell apart in August and September (5.67 ERA and 6.50 FIP in his last 11 starts).

Probably had a bit of dead arm

I agree he probably had dead arm or otherwise didn't have the stamina.

Monthly OPS:

May 549
June 618
July 714
August 708
Sept/Oct 852
