Padres Pitcher Placed On Injured List

Mike Clevinger will be missing time again for the San Diego Padres, as he has been placed on the 15-day injured list with a triceps strain. 

Clevinger of course recently returned to the mound for the first time since the 2020 season after having Tommy John surgery. So far, he's been off to a very solid start, as he has a 1-0 record and 3.21 ERA in three appearances. Yet, this injury now is forcing him to be sidelined again.

At this juncture, an estimated recovery time has yet to be announced by the club. All baseball fans should be hoping Clevinger can return to the mound as soon as this 15-day stint on the IL is over. Alas, time will tell what happens on that front.
