Chicago White Sox’s Clevinger under investigation by MLB for domestic violence accusations


There’s a disturbing new report about one of the The Chicago White Sox new players.

Mike Clevinger, who signed with the White Sox this offseason, is under investigation for violating baseball’s domestic violence policy.

The mother of her 10-month-old son is accusing Clevinger of physical and emotional abuse of her three children and two mothers, including herself.

Olivia Finestead shared her allegations on her Instagram page, then agreed to talk The Athletic.


She accused Clevinger of several acts of domestic violence and child abuse, including allegedly throwing chewing tobacco on a screaming newborn and strangling it.

The accuser has been in contact with baseball investigators since last summer when Clevinger was still with the San Diego Padres.

The White Sox say they knew nothing of these allegations or their investigation before signing Clevinger in November.

The team also refrains from commenting on the allegations until the investigative process is complete.
