It looks like Mike Clevinger has some explaining to do it.
The mother of his 10-year-old daughter Olivia Finestead went nuclear on Instagram today. She claims Clevinger has been abusive to her and their daughter and to all his kids.
This has led to an MLB investigation, according to TMZ Sports.
A woman claiming to be the mother of Mike Clevinger’s 10-month-old daughter says the White Sox pitcher abused her — strangling her on one occasion — and now, the MLB is reportedly investigating the allegations.
The woman, Olivia Finestead, made the claims in a series of social media posts on Tuesday … alleging Clevinger terrorized her during their relationship.
In one of her posts, Finestead said the 32-year-old “threw an iPad at me pregnant.” She also said “he strangled me.” The woman also alleged Clevinger “threw chew spit on our baby.”
According to The Athletic, Finestead has been in contact with the MLB over the allegations. The outlet also reported the MLB has launched an investigation into the claims.
Clevinger began his career with Cleveland, but spent the last 2.5 seasons with the San Diego Padres. The Chicago White Sox signed him in free agency this offseason.
The Athletic reports the Sox were made aware of Finestead’s allegations only after the signing.
It will be curious to see what MLB and the White Sox do about the accusation. Even though Trevor Bauer wasn’t prosecuted for a crime, they still suspended him for two seasons (which ended up being reduced to one season).
I will assume they will interview Ms. Finestead and Clevinger’s other baby mamas to see if there is a pattern of abuse and more evidence before making a final ruling. Still, it isn’t looking good for him.
BSO collected all the IG posts, which are entirely something to see.
