Clevinger replaced on Padres playoff roster with elbow issue
The right-hander went only two pitches into the second inning of the NL Division Series opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night. The Padres didn't announce until Tuesday, hours before the start of the NLDS, that Clevinger was going to be on the 28-man roster and start Game 1. This thing is not going to be easy, and he knew that.”Because he was replaced during the NLDS, Clevinger wouldn't be eligible for the NL Championship Series roster if the Padres advance. He would be able to be on their World Series roster if they make it that far. After the game, Clevinger said he started feeling discomfort facing his second batter of the game.
Padres get back Mike Clevinger, Dodgers add pitcher for NLDS
