The Tampa Bay Rays received some horrible news as reliever Garrett Cleavinger injured his ACL and could be done for the MLB season.
Cleavinger injured his knee after running down a Yankees player between third base and home plate. Garret jumped over the player and his knee gave out.
Cleavinger was 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA in 15 appearances for Tampa, who have baseball’s best record at 29-7.
Garett was originally drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the third round of the 2015 MLB draft and made his MLB debut with Orioles in 2020.
Cleavinger is known for his fastball-slider combination, which he uses to generate strikeouts and weak contact. His fastball sits in the low-to-mid 90s, and his slider has sharp, late movement that can be difficult for hitters to pick up. He also has a changeup in his arsenal that he uses against right-handed batters.
