Clevinger was removed from his start Sunday against the Blue Jays after five innings due to upper-back tightness, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

Clevinger was spinning a gem before the injury set in, delivering five scoreless frames while striking out 10 and allowing one hit and one walk. He only needed 75 pitches to record 15 outs and likely left some punchouts on the table with the early exit, but he could still come away with the win after departing with a 3-0 lead. While the back issue puts Clevinger's availability for his next start April 13 in Kansas City in question, it's encouraging that he's at least not dealing with an arm injury. Per Mandy Bell of MLB.com, Clevinger's velocity was actually up more than a full tick from his first start of the season, with the right-hander's fastball averaging 96.1 miles per hour.

I. Am. Loving. It. 

 

Although regretting using Tailon as a keeper over him but I made sure to “overdraft” him(according to those in my leagues.)

 

The last Indians pitcher I fell in love with  had his mom defending him on the forums.  He then had fangraphs jump on board with a weekly Appreciation society in 2013. That seemed to work out pretty good.

Clevinger has even better eye popping strikeout potential going forward. 

 

 

That is the funniest thread I have seen on this forum.  That's a passionate parent right there.  haha

Thank god. He's making a push to be a top 10-15 SP this year last thing we need is for him to be derailed by an injury

 

he was already a top 10-15 SP coming into the season. imo (call me crazy) i feel he's making a push to be a top 5-7 SP

Yeah these muscles are attached to other really important muscles...I figured at least 4-5 weeks, but looks a lot worse now, as he'll totally have to ramp back up.

Such a buzz-kill

His injury got worse just because his outlook page was adjacent to David Dahl's.  Sucks for owners that's a major blow to a fantasy pitching staff.  To the diehard CLE fans, who's the long term answer here?

That sucks. Who takes his place in rotation?

Plutko? Not a ton of upside there imo.

Huh, yeah he was pretty bad in ST when I saw him...I really don't know the pecking order beyond that. Salazar is out awhile yet (60 day IL)

It'd be a pretty big jump for McKenzie--who's obv an interesting arm.
