Indians’ Mike Clevinger calls out MLB over fine for cleats

Mike Clevinger

Cleveland Indians pitcher Mike Clevinger is not pleased with Major League Baseball over a recent punishment that was levied to him.

Clevinger revealed to Twitter on Saturday that he had officially been fined by the league over his custom cleats, even despite them being in majority team colors. He then went on to show off the cleats in question.

For Clevinger, who holds a 4-2 record with a 3.14 ERA in 11 starts this season, the fine did not come out of the blue — the league warned him last month over his “non-conforming shoes.” But for a rule that seems so arbitrarily enforced, Clevinger probably has fairly good reason to question the fine, especially since it sounds like he took steps to comply with MLB policy.
