White Sox Pitcher At Spring Training Despite Ongoing Domestic Assault Investigation

According to numerous reports, Mike Clevinger is expected to report to the Chicago White Sox spring training facility when camp opens on Wednesday.

The MLB's investigation into accusations of domestic violence and child abuse are still ongoing and Clevinger is not expected to be placed on administrative leave.

It appears the White Sox are going to allow their offseason signing to participate in spring training and prepare for the 2023 season until the league's investigation is complete.

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

Last month, Olivia Finestead, the mother of his child (24 y/o) detailed to investigators incidents of physical, verbal and emotional abuse. 

She mentioned 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 San Diego Padres last year when the alleged incidents took place.
