After a bullpen session this evening, San Diego Padres felt hopeful for Mike Clevinger's return to the MLB Playoffs against Los Angeles Dodgers during the NLDS.
Mike Clevinger missed the Wild Card Series after a right posterior elbow impingement, and now he's aiming his return to face Los Angeles Dodgers during the NLDS. This MLB Postseason is about to be wild!
With a little bit more than 48 hours until the first pitch, the Padres held a bullpen session with Clevinger during Sunday evening and looked good. This is a great sign for the Padres, who will be facing the best team in the NL West and actually the whole MLB. They might be needing their best pitchers during these series.Mike Clevinger threw a bullpen earlier.
