2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Clevenger beat out Welington Castillo for the backup job last spring and started off strong only to see his production fall off a cliff as the season went on. He finished with a .201/.260/.276 line in 190 at-bats and as such might not even secure the backup job with the Cubs' addition of Dioner Navarro in free agency over the winter. Unless the Cubs opt to carry three catchers, Clevenger may be headed back to Triple-A Iowa.

2012

Backup catcher - above average bat for a reserve backstop.
