BREAKING: Mike Clevinger Under Investigation For Domestic Violence Allegations

Chicago White Sox starter Mike Clevinger is being investigated by the MLB following allegations of domestic violence involving the mother of his 10-month-old daughter and child abuse.

Olivia Finestead, the mother of his child (24 y/o) has detailed to investigators incidents of physical, verbal and emotional abuse, including an incident from last June in which Finestead said Clevinger choked her, and another about two weeks later when she said Clevinger slapped her in a hotel room when the team was playing the Los Angeles Dodgers. She also said he threw used chewing tobacco on their child, per The Athletic.

Clevinger was pitching for the Padres last year when the alleged incidents took place. 

The thirty-two-year-old pitcher signed a one-year, $12 million contract earlier this offseason with the White Sox. 

It's not yet clear at this stage whether he'll ultimately face discipline under MLB and MLBPA's joint domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse policy.

There will be more clarity on the whole situation once the MLB's investigation is complete.
