Orioles' Steve Clevenger improving behind plate in Triple-A
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/18/15) Orioles catcher Steve Clevenger has produced encouraging reports from Triple-A manager Ron Johnson for his work behind the plate, a facet of his game the team wanted him to focus on improving, MASNSports.com reports.
"Clevenger's doing well down there. He's catching real well," manager Buck Showalter said. "Really like what R.J.'s been saying about him."
Clevenger has thrown out just 13 percent of base-runners at the major-league level, a mark which is less than half of the league average during his major-league career.
Orioles C Steve Clevenger moved to Triple-A DL
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/24/15) Orioles catcher Steve Clevenger has been moved to the Triple-A disabled list with a left thumb contusion, according to the Virginian-Pilot.
Clevenger, with the Norfolk Tides, injured his thumb while making a tag last Saturday. He aggravated the injury after catching a knuckleball from Eddie Gamboa.
Agent: Orioles should allow Clevenger to seek MLB at-bats elsewhere
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/8/15) Steve Clevenger's agent, Josh Kusnick, told reporters that the Orioles should allow his client to seek a big-league opportunity elsewhere instead of fighting for at-bats at Triple-A Norfolk. Clevenger was optioned to Triple-A on Tuesday after infielder Chris Davis was reinstated from the restricted list.
"It's tough that he got sent down today after being told that he made the team," Kusnick said. "We were all in the dark about what happened, but we had an inkling this was coming. I heard things during spring training that this was possible, but nothing from the club, and I didn't really get an indication it was coming to fruition until today.
"I don't understand it from my side. I've been doing this for 13 years now and I've never seen a situation like it before. I'm not one to comment too much on how clubs operate and run their teams. That's their prerogative. But if the Orioles are trying to create roster flexibility and they go ahead and put a guy on the 40-man with no options and took a guy with flexibility and send him down and all of the sudden the flexibility evaporates. I don't understand the long-term plan here for Steve right now."
Orioles reinstate infielder Chris Davis, expected to start Tuesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/7/15) The Orioles have reinstated infielder Chris Davis from the restricted list and optioned catcher Steve Clevenger to Triple-A, the team announced Tuesday.
Davis was suspended 25 games last season after testing positive for amphetamines without a prescription. He needed one game this season to complete the suspension.
"It feels good," Davis said to MASN.com. "Obviously, watching the game, everybody's having all the fun, hitting home runs, scoring a bunch of runs. It's good to be a part of it today. I missed these guys, even though I wasn't really gone. Still hanging around with them on the field, just being around with them and competing. Wearing that uniform, it's exciting."
Davis, who hit .196 with 26 home runs and 72 RBI last year, will bat fifth and be slotted as the designated hitter Tuesday.
The Orioles (-110) are the favorites over the Rays Tuesday.
