STEVE CLEVENGER RUMORS

Cubs' Steve Clevenger still has tenderness in oblique

Chicago Cubs catcher Steve Clevenger has had a very good rehab assignment statistically, but, unfortunately, tenderness in his left oblique may keep him off the Cubs' active roster for a while longer. Clevenger began a Triple-A rehab assignment on June 3, and he hit very well: .375 with 3 HR and 11 RBI in 15 games. Performance like this would lead to believe that Clevenger would...

Cubs' Steve Clevenger begins rehab assignment

A swing and a miss meant a lot more than a strikeout for Chicago Cubs catcher Steve Clevenger. It meant a long stint on the disabled list. After a long recovery, Clevenger began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa on June 3. Des Moines Register's Tommy Birch reports that Clevenger went 1 for 3 with a game-tying three-run double. On April 13, Clevenger swung at a curve ball...

Clevenger fell to the ground in pain when he struck out to end Saturday's loss to San Francisco. He injured the oblique muscle.

Cubs' Clevenger suspended one game

Chicago Cubs catcher Steve Clevenger has been suspended for one game by Major League Baseball for his role in a benches-clearing incident against the Nationals. Clevenger, who also was fined, did not appeal the penalty and was set to sit out Saturday night at Pittsburgh. During the sixth inning of the Cubs' 9-2 loss to Washington on Thursday night, a pitch from Chicago'...

Jamie Quirk should be fired, Steve Clevenger should be optioned off the team

I've only read the accounts of what happened last night, but that probably is best. Based on what has been said since the events of last night's Cubs @ Walgreens game, Jamie Quirk should be fired immediately and Steve Clevenger should be optioned off the team. The actions by both were ridiculous. Ever since Lou left this team has been a bunch of crybabies. Last year we had...

Steve Clevenger- .500 Hitter

Do you know who Steve Clevenger is?  Well, he's the backup catcher for the Chicago Cubs who is currently batting .500 for the season (13-26).  The 26 year old was drafted in the 7th round in 2006 and has hit for average at every stop along his minor league journey (.309/.795 in 7 minor league seasons).  He made his debut with the Cubbies last year, appearing in 2 games....

Wells and Wood optioned to minors, Clevenger over Castillo

I'd much rather have seen Randy Wells in the Chicago Cubs rotation, but rather than bullpenning him the Cubs have at least done the only other smart thing possible by optioning him to the minors. Good call on that even if it's the result of other poor decisions. I've been saying for awhile that Steve Clevenger is the better catcher and better option to back-up Geovany...
