About right on price. A workhorse. Only injury will keep him from that value. He easily could have had more wins in 2018.

I'd knock him down a couple bucks.  Don't pay for the peak, although I realize he's still young and could improve.

I'm working on Big Prices for the Guide. Today I have Mike Clevinger with a price of $24. What do you think?

The Astros are dominating pitching K's this year and all-time with 1615.  The Indians are fifth with 1464.  FWIW, the Indians had 1614 last year, which was the MLB record.  The 2016 Dodgers had the previous record with 1510.  If you like K's, this is the era to be alive.

Clevinger becomes the fourth Indians pitcher to strike out 200. First time that's happened on any team.

The bullpen isn't shabby when it comes to Ks; I assume the Indians are within striking distance of the all-time record.

I got him for $6 in early 2017 and he's been an awesome FAAB addition. I kind of remember that Doc never gave him his props.

I did, David. Spent $18 for him.

Looks pretty good right now, no?

Except I traded him away in July in a fire sale.

Don't ask.

Clevinger has demonstrated the same toughness all year that he has learned from his mentor and tough teammate Trevor Bauer. They share a competitive fire. Some scoffed when Clevinger said in the spring that his goal for 2018 was 200 innings. With health, he will make it. As of today, 176, with 182 Ks. Numbers improving each year. Not bad for a number 4. Kind of remember that you bought him for 2018, Alex.

Mike Clevinger (P) CLE - Mar. 6

Manager Terry Francona said Monday that Clevinger will open the season in the rotation, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. "Danny (Salazar) is not going to be ready," Francona said. "We're looking for (Clevinger) to have a big year.
He's strong, and he should be able to be that innings-eater type of pitcher."

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The skipper erased any doubt about Clevinger's status after the right-hander struck out six over three scoreless innings against the Dodgers on Monday. That leaves Josh Tomlin and Ryan Merritt to battle it out for the final rotation spot over the remainder of camp. Clevinger has battled control issues throughout his pro career, but he's held opponents to a .221 average at the big-league level while striking out a quarter of the batters he's faced. Look for his price to tick up from here.
