Mike Clevinger, Wicked 78mph Curveball.
Trevor Bauer, asked about the rainout disrupting his scheduled matchup against Mike Clevinger: “I’m happy for Clevinger. Gotta be a good thing for him. Everyone likes to feel confident and have a good start to their season. I didn’t want to take that from him.” @MLBNetwork @Cut4
Indians P Mike Clevinger allowed 3 ER in the 1st inning tonight vs Minnesota.
That snaps Cleveland's team streak of 7 straight starts with at least 6 IP and 2 or fewer runs allowed to start the season, which was tied for the longest such streak in MLB history.
Max Kepler with a 444-ft HR off Mike Clevinger.
That's tied for the 4th-longest HR Clevinger has allowed in his career (tied with a Sept. 2016 Miguel Cabrera HR).
Clevinger genuinely has the most punchable face I’ve ever laid eyes on
Well, after seven consecutive dominant starts, the Indians finally seem to be getting a clunker from Clevinger.
bold prediction: Twins light up Clevinger
I’m worried about the Tribe’s social distancing practices because Clevinger seems to have caught whatever the hell is wrong with Hand.
Mike Clevinger’s first-inning ERA is 22.50 this year.
Eddie Rosario is easily thrown out stretching a single into a double w/ one out in B3, the #MNTwins' 2nd out on the bases tonight. Decidedly has made it easier on Mike Clevinger, who has thrown 66 pitches after 3. Threw 38 in the 1st inning.

A frustrating outing for Mike Clevinger in start No.2 of the season.
He exits, Phil Maton begins B5 for #OurTribe
Clevinger just hasn't had it all night. Never seen him this wild. #MNTwins
Clevinger is absolutely ruining my night
Clevinger now at 3 walks this inning alone, 5 for the game. Definitely not right. Not sure if it's the knee, the back, or just doesn't have his command today. Hasn't looked physically comfortable all game.
One more out of Clevinger??
As a kindergarten teacher, watching Clevinger pitch, I just want to tell him to go use the bathroom already. #PottyDance
What's wrong with Clevinger tonight? Old Happy Feet didn't have it.
I really hate watching Clevinger on the mound.
Without knowing Clevinger's story, I would imagine a pitching coach crininging over his mechanics. Can't believe that the extra stepping doesn't mess with something.
I thought Clevinger would have hit Gonzalez. He seemed like the kind of guy who would have wanted to hit the Astros.
