Unfortunately for the Tribe, their luck hasn't changed. Indians' ace Mike Clevinger suffered a partially torn left meniscus on Wednesday while training at the Goodyear Development Complex.
He will undergo surgery on Thursday in Avondale, Arizona. Dr. Tim Kremcheck will perform the operation.
Clevinger will miss the start of the season and an official timetable for his return will be determined after surgery.
The 29-year-old went 13-4 last season with a 2.71 ERA. He made 21 starts and established himself as one of the best pitchers in the game.
Clevinger missed more than two months in 2019 with a Teres major muscle strain in his back.
With 'Sunshine' out, Shane Bieber and Carlos Carrasco become the favorites to start on Opening Day against the Tigers.
