There is a lot to like about Mike Clevinger. He looks a lot like Jacob deGrom when he takes the mound, his long hair flying through the air as he hurls the ball to the plate. He loves the spotlight, as evidenced by last season’s Governor’s Cup performance. When you meet him, he has a care-free attitude, always laughing with a smile on his face, seemingly the happiest 25-year old to be wearing a baseball uniform.
He’s also happens to be an outstanding pitcher.
