4/14 Clevenger on 60-day DL; add Loe
Steve Clevenger will be sidelined at least six weeks because of a left oblique strain suffered on a swing Saturday. Clevenger, who missed time last year because of a strained right oblique, was placed on the 60-day DL to make room on the 40-man roster for Kameron Loe, whom the Cubs claimed off waivers from the Mariners. Loe will not be at Wrigley Sunday. The Cubs are waiting for Darwin Barney’s return from the DL, expected Tuesday. Clevenger was 1-for-8 in eight games with the Cubs.
“We lose a lot by losing him,” Dale Sveum said of Clevenger.
Loe, 31, appeared in four games with the Mariners and gave up eight runs over 6 2/3 innings. The right-hander has pitched for the Rangers and Brewers.
