The Chicago Cubs will be without 27-year old lefty swinging catcher Steve Clevenger for the next 6 weeks due to a left oblique strain. Clevenger has played in 8 games for the Cubs so far this year and is 1 for 9 (.111 avg, .347 OPS) with 1 run scored. He has now played in 79 games in his first three years with the Cubs and he is 42 of 211 (.199 avg, .537 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 1 homer and 16 RBIs. This won’t hurt the Cubs too much as they are set up pretty well behind the plate right now with Welington Castillo and Dioner Navarro.
UPDATE: Clevenger has been placed on the 60-day disabled list by the Cubs.
