Pending physicals, the Chicago White Sox will sign veteran starter Mike Clevinger, according to The Athletic.
The 31-year-old right-hander was one of the most desirable middle-class arms in free agency today, after being the third member of the starting rotation for the San Diego Padres, a squad that lost in the NLCS in 2022.
In the regular round, Mike Clevinger posted a 7-7 record and a 4.33 ERA in 114.1 innings, while in the final postseason he presented a disastrous 28.30 in clean lines, after giving up seven in 2.2 acts.
Once the hiring of the former Cleveland Guardians is made official, the White Sox will complete a solid quartet of starters, given the presence of Dylan Cease, of notable 2022, plus Lucas Giolito and Lance Lynn.
Likewise, the ninth white-legged team will now look for a right-handed power shoveler; even bring back the Cuban José Abreu, who after spending his first nine courses in that organization and getting a Rookie of the Year (2014) and an MVP (2020), declared himself a free agent a few weeks ago.
The addition of Mike Clevinger should bolster the Chicago White Sox starting staff considerably in 2023.
