The San Diego Padres have acquired pitcher Mike Clevinger from the Cleveland Indians, according to ESPN's Jesse Rogers. 

The Indians will receive right-handed pitcher Cal Quantrill, shortstop Gabriel Arias, catcher Austin Hedge, shortstop Owen Miller and outfielder Josh Naylor in exchange for Clevinger, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan.

Clevinger is 1–1 with a 3.18 ERA on the season. He was optioned to Cleveland's alternate training site in Jacksonville, Fla. after he and teammate Zach Plesac broke COVID-19 protocols while the team was playing in Chicago on Aug. 7. Indians players scolded Clevinger and Plesac in a team meeting earlier this month.

Clevinger won his last start with the Indians on Aug. 26 with six innings pitched, six strikeouts and one walk allowed to the Minnesota Twins.
