Analysis: Clevinger also agreed to a two-year, $11.5 million contract to avoid arbitration, and he'll spend the first year of the deal rehabbing his troublesome elbow. An injury limited the right-hander to just one inning pitched during the Padres' postseason run last month, and he had been expected to be one of the anchors of the team's 2021 rotation.

That would also depend on if his ailing right elbow is healthy enough to get back on the mound in October after he went only two pitches into the second inning of the NL Division Series opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night.
Analysis: Clevinger left his final regular season start Sept. 23 after one inning because of an elbow impingement. He was left off the roster for the wild-card round against St. Louis. Clevinger was making only his second start since a two-hit shutout in a seven-inning complete game Sept. 13. He was 2-1 with a 2.84 ERA in four starts for the Padres in September.

Analysis: Clevinger was not on the Padres' roster for the opening round against the Cardinals. He went 2-1 with a 2.84 ERA in four starts with San Diego after being acquired from the Indians.

If all goes well, he could start Wednesday against the Angels.
Analysis: The Padres are counting on Clevinger for the upcoming playoffs, so it's good news that he's not dealing with any longer-term issues. The right-hander has posted solid numbers for both Cleveland and San Diego this season, as he's 3-2 with a 3.10 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP in seven starts.

Analysis: Clevinger will return and pitch the series finale against the AL Central-leading Minnesota Twins. The right-hander last pitched on Aug. 5 at Cincinnati. Three days later, he and Zach Plesac violated the team's code of conduct by going out to dinner and risking exposure to the coronavirus. The actions of the free-spirited Clevinger drew the wrath of teammates, who expressed their unhappiness with him and Plesac during at a team meeting in Detroit.

He was scheduled to start Tuesday against the Cubs.
Analysis: The Indians are now down two starting pitchers in the short term after the team sent Zach Plesac home Sunday after he went out with friends in Chicago after his outing on Saturday. Adam Plutko, who went 7-5 with a 4.64 ERA in 20 starts last season, will fill in for Clevinger on Tuesday.

Analysis: Clevinger will hold down a key role in Cleveland's rotation after an excellent 2019 campaign in which he went 13-4 with a 2.71 ERA in 21 starts and struck out 169 batters in 126 innings.
