OPINION: Chicago White Sox Should Not Have Let Johnny Cueto Go


The Chicago White Sox could be without newly signed starting pitcher Mike Clevinger for a significant chunk of the 2023 Major League Baseball season.

Tuesday, The Athletic’s Katie Strang and Brittany Ghiroli reported Mike Clevinger is under investigation by Major League Baseball. Clevinger has received allegations of domestic violence and child abuse from the mother of his 10-month-old daughter.

Clevinger agreed to a one-year, $8 million deal with the White Sox earlier this winter. He was expected to be the club’s fifth starter in their pitching rotation behind Dylan Cease, Lucas Giolito, Lance Lynn and Michael Kopech.
