With his team out of it, Clevinger was hoping to top his win total last year in the season finale against the Nationals. But he left in the sixth inning down 6-1.

"I went into it trying to have some fun," he said, "and it wasn't a whole lot of fun."

Final interleague scorecard: NL 166, NL 134 (1497 runs to 1338).

Hits the 10-day IL with a right upper back/Teres mayor muscle strain and according to Terry Francona it will be 6-to-8 weeks before he resumes baseball activities. It looks like late-June, early July before he returns.

Is sitting 95/96 this spring after going 93/94 last year.

From Brett Sayre's recap of the LABR AL auction this weekend:

Clevinger is the upside play. He has had a 3.61 and 3.52 DRA the last two seasons and he will likely be throwing to Roberto Perez
for the vast majority of the season. It’s too small of a sample to put a
ton of stock in, but in the nine starts Clevinger threw where Perez was
behind the plate last year, he had a 1.79 ERA and a sub-1.00 WHIP with
10 strikeouts per nine innings. Perez’s historically excellent framing
numbers makes this an interesting data point.

Agree on pitcher extensions. Too many risks involved.

I never give any pitcher more than a one year extension. If he turns out to be dump trade bait at the deadline, all the better.

He's an easy keeper at $11. He's an easy keeper at twice that.

The three big scarcities in baseball nowadays: players who hit for batting average, players who run, pitchers who figure to have positive ERAs and WHIPs -- and start.

My math skills deserted me temporarily and I only need to go to $11 to give him a one year bump so I take it that the answer is yes. The league uses IP rather than Ks but I guess that shouldn't make much of a difference.
