The mother of Clevinger's child reported she has been in contact with Major League Baseball since the summer after accusing Clevinger of domestic violence and child abuse. Olivia Finestead said Clevinger has choked and slapped her and also threw used chewing tobacco on their 10-month-old daughter. A member of the San Diego Padres at the time of the accusations, Clevinger signed a one-year, $15 million contract with the White Sox this winter. The club said they were not aware of the accusations at the time of the signing. Obviously, Clevinger's fantasy stock takes a significant hit if he were to be punished by the league.
