Indians President Chris Antonetti Speaks to the Media on Numerous Topics; Five Takeaways

2. The Development of Mike Clevinger

Following another solid outing on Tuesday night from Mike Clevinger, the Indians hurler now stands at 6-2 with an ERA at 3.00

He’s built on a solid 2017 season, and is quickly establishing himself as a force in the rotation, and is on pace to throw over 200 innings in 2018.

“It’s been one of the great storylines of our season so far,” Antonetti said. “He’s starting to become much more efficient with his pitches, where I think we saw last year he say by the fifth inning he was getting into a lot of deep counts, was getting close to 100 pitches, not able to pitch deeper into games.”

Clevinger on Tuesday threw 114 pitches, and already this season he’s thrown over 100 pitches in 11 of his 15 starts. He’s looking like a player that can have a big impact for this team come the postseason.
