Clevinger had been under investigation by MLB since January 24 after the mother of one of his children accused him of domestic abuse. His former partner Olivia Finestead posted on Instagram showing injuries sustained from an incident where she accused him of throwing an iPad at her while she was pregnant. She also accused him of strangling her, throwing tobacco chew spit on their baby and using illegal drugs in separate incidents.
Clevinger released a statement following the league's announcement that can be seen below.
"I am pleased that Major League Baseball has concluded its investigation," Clevinger said in a statement. "I had nothing to hide and cooperated fully with MLB. This situation has been stressful for my family, and I thank them for their strength and support.
I asked everyone not to rush to judgment until MLB's investigation was concluded, and I appreciate everyone who had faith in me, including the White Sox organization and my teammates.
I am looking forward to the 2023 season and helping the White Sox win a championship this year."
Prior to the accusations and investigation, Clevinger signed a 1 year $12 million contract with Chicago in December.
