Mike Clevinger (knee) throws a bullpen session Monday

Mike Clevinger (knee) threw a bullpen session on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

This was Clevinger's first bullpen since injuring his knee back in February. The next steps will be for him to face live hitters and then get into some Cactus League games. He could join the Indians' rotation in mid-April if everything goes well.

"We started rolling today" Clevinger told reporters after Tuesday's workout. The right-hander also practiced landing on his knee while going through his windup on the mound. If Clevinger avoids setbacks he could return to the Cleveland rotation in mid-April.

Mike Clevinger (knee) expected to return in 6-8 weeks

The Indians announced Friday that Mike Clevinger (knee) is expected to return to Major League game activity in six to eight weeks.

Fantasy Impact

This isn't terrible news considering Opening Day is six weeks from now. That means Clevinger might only miss the first couple weeks of the 2020 season. The ace right-hander underwent surgery today to repair a partial tear of the medial meniscus in his left knee.

Mike Clevinger to undergo knee surgery

Mike Clevinger is scheduled to undergo surgery on Friday after he sustained a partial tear of the medial meniscus in his left knee while training this week. A timetable for his return will be established after the procedure.

Fantasy Impact

Although the Indians can't announce a timeline yet, fantasy players can safely assume that Clevinger will not be ready for Opening Day. If you've already drafted Clevinger, there's not much you can do, but if you have a draft coming up immediately, the safe bet is to drop him outside of the top-20 pitchers until we learn more. Logan Allen would likely step into Clevinger's spot in the rotation.

Mike Clevinger drawing trade interest from Angels

Jon Morosi of MLB.com writes the Angels have expressed interest in trading for Mike Clevinger.

Fantasy Impact

However, it's worth noting that any discussion with Cleveland have been merely preliminary at this point. The Indians reportedly want top prospect Jo Adell in return for their 29-year-old ace, which the Angels balked at. In 2019 Clevinger posted a 2.71 ERA with 169 strikeouts in 121 innings pitched.
