by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com

With Welington Castillo solid to begin the season (.364/.382/.515), playing time was going to be rare for Clevenger going forward.

"I feel comfortable over there," Clevenger told MLB.com. "I was drafted as a shortstop, so I played my first year at short and second. I just need the repetition in the games, I think, but I don't feel weird over there. I'm not nervous at all."

Although Clevenger likely won't be relied upon as the team's regular third baseman this season, he could see some appearances at the position as a substitute or in emergency situations.


Steve Clevenger leading for final Cubs roster spot


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2013) It appears that Steve Clevenger has the edge for the final roster spot for the Cubs this spring, reports MLB.com Monday. Clevenger, who made the opening day roster last year as the backup catcher, entered Monday hitting .395 overall this spring and .526 in his last 11 games. 

The left-handed hitter is also 7 for 13 off left-handed pitchers this spring. "He had a rough time the last three months of last season, and struggled at a little bit of everything, and came into spring training in the best shape he’s ever been in and worked extremely hard at the infield," Dale Sveum said of Clevenger, who can sub at first or third if needed.

The other player still in contention for the final roster spot is Alberto Gonzalez, a right-handed hitter. 


Steve Clevenger, Alberto Gonzalez up for final bench spot


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com

"That's the kind of thing Clevenger can bring to the table," Sveum said. "Then you can pinch-hit [catcher Dioner] Navarro without worrying about things."
