Cubs Missing Steve Clevenger

By bullpenbrian - May 11, 2012 - 2:00 am 1 comment.

Hot-hitting Steve Clevenger, off to a 11-for-22 start at the plate, was on the brink of becoming Dale Sveum’s everyday catcher before suffering tightness in his right side.

The injury forced Clevenger to the 15-day DL on April 30, which doesn’t expire until next Tuesday.

But even from the training table Clevenger appears to have the upper hand on Geovany Soto, whose season-long slump has dropped his batting average to .152, ranking 29th among major league back stoppers.
