Indians' Clevinger to have surgery on left knee


Cleveland Indians pitcher Mike Clevinger will have surgery on his left knee for a partially torn meniscus, the team announced Friday.

The right-hander suffered the injury Thursday while training at the team’s spring facility in Goodyear, Arizona.

The team has not announced a time frame for his return.

Clevinger avoided arbitration this offseason after reaching a $4.1 million deal with the Indians. The right-hander went 13-4 with a 2.71 ERA in 21 starts and is being counted on to be a key part of the rotation after the Indians traded two-time Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber.
