CLEVELAND (AP) — The Indians have already suffered a blow in spring training. Starter Mike Clevinger injured his left knee during a workout in Arizona and will have surgery. The team says he tore cartilage Wednesday and a timetable for his return will be set after the operation. C

Clevinger won 13 games last season. The Indians are counting on him to have an even larger role after two-time Cy Young winner Corey Kluber was traded this winter to Texas. Clevinger has won 38 games over the past three seasons.
