The San Diego Padres acquired right-hander Mike Clevinger from Cleveland before the Aug. 31 trade deadline, hoping to have Clevinger cement their rotation ahead of the 2020 postseason. Now, as Clevinger continues to deal with an elbow posterior impingement, he may not be available at all in this year's playoffs, per ESPN's Jeff Passan.

Clevinger, 29, threw a 23-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday.
