Mike Clevinger has reportedly signed a deal with the Chicago White Sox after the Padres traded for him at the trade deadline in 2020. Terms of Clevinger's deal have not been disclosed. Clevinger pitched in 27 games for the Padres, as he missed the 2021 season due to Tommy John surgery. Clevinger went 7-7 with a 4.33 ERA for San Diego in 2022, and was ineffective during 2 playoff starts, amassing an ERA of 23.63.

The Padres traded pitcher Cal Quantrill, catcher Austin Hedges, shortstop Gabriel Arias, utility infielder Owen Miller, outfielder Josh Naylor, and left-handed pitcher Joey Cantillo in exchange for Mike Clevinger, outfielder Greg Allen and a player to be named later at the trade deadline during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season as the Padres made their playoff push.

UPDATE: The Athletic's Jim Bowden reports that the White Sox signed Mike Clevinger to a 1-year $12 million contract.
