Mike Clevinger hopes a matchup against Kansas City can help him get right.
After his masterful start to the season was cut short by a back injury, the Indians right-hander has had a lousy go of it.
Over two starts since returning, he’s allowed 12 runs in 6 1/3 innings, including a seven-run mishap against the lowly Orioles last time out.
Cleveland is on the AL postseason bubble, and Clevinger’s status could influence the team’s direction at the trade deadline.
