    Mike Clevinger: Knee Surgery (2/14)

    Ouch. Man, this guy can't stay healthy.

    Mike Clevinger is scheduled to undergo surgery on Friday to repair a partial tear of the medial meniscus in his left knee.
    Clevinger suffered the injury earlier this week during a training session in Indians camp. A timetable for his return will be established after the procedure. The 29-year-old right-hander was limited to 21 starts (126 innings) last season due to back and ankle problems, but he registered a 2.71 ERA and 12.1 K/9 when healthy, and he was shaping up as a potential front-line fantasy starter for 2020. It's hard to know where to draft him now.

    Nope, sounds more like a we'll see you in mid-May scenario (assuming no setbacks).

    He's just coming off contract in my AL only league. This will make bidding interesting.
    I'm just here for the baseball.

    And that's just for his knee to heal. Add another month to rebuild his arm strength after not throwing for that long.
