Michael Anthony Clevinger is an American pitcher who plays in Major League Baseball for the Chicago White Sox. He used to play for the Cleveland Indians and the San Diego Padres in Major League Baseball. Clevinger made his MLB debut in 2016.
Clevinger signed a one-year, $8 million contract with the Chicago White Sox on December 4, 2022. The contract included a $12 million option for the 2024 season or a $4 million buyout if neither side wanted to keep the deal.
Recently, Mike Clevinger’s alleged girlfriend and the mother of his 10-month-old daughter accused the White Sox pitcher of domestic violence and child abuse. Read on to know everything about his alleged girlfriend and kids.
Who Is Mike Clevinger’s Girlfriend?
Mike Clevinger is allegedly dating Olivia Finestead, who is 24 years old. The couple has a 10-months old child together. They have been in a relationship for quite a time. She recently made the claims of domestic violence public on Instagram on Tuesday.
Finestead says that she has told the investigators about physical, verbal, and emotional abuse. It has been said that Clevinger choked her last June, and about two weeks later, when the team was playing the Dodgers, Clevinger slapped her in a hotel room and threw used chewing tobacco on their child.
A person familiar with MLB investigations said that there is an open investigation into Clevinger. The source also said that the White Sox found out about the claims after they signed him. When the alleged incident happened last June, Clevinger was playing for the San Diego Padres. This offseason, the White Sox gave the right-hander a one-year deal worth $12 million.
Mike Clevinger Hasn’t Said Anything About The Allegations Of Domestic Violence
The Athletic got the following statement from Chicago: “Major League Baseball and the Chicago White Sox take all allegations very seriously,” the team said in a statement to The Athletic. “The White Sox fully support the Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, and Child Abuse Policy that MLB and the MLBPA share.” “When MLB heard about these claims, they started an investigation. When the White Sox signed him, they didn’t know about the claims or the investigation. The White Sox won’t say anything until Major League Baseball’s investigation is over.”
Clevinger hasn’t said anything about the claims in public, and his agent told The Athletic that they need “time” before they can respond.
