Cleveland Indians pitcher Mike Clevinger in quarantine after violating COVID-19 protocols

Cleveland Indians pitcher Mike Clevinger has "been instructed to quarantine" after the team learned Monday that he broke COVID-19 protocols while on the team's road trip in Chicago. 

"The Cleveland Indians will continue to keep the health and safety of our players, coaches and staff members as our top priority," the team said in a statement, adding Clevinger will also need to undergo additional testing while he is away from the team. 

Clevinger, 29, is the second Indians pitcher instructed to spend time away from the team after Zach Plesac was also sent home via a car service for reportedly leaving the team hotel to go out with friends in Chicago on Saturday night. According to ESPN's Jeff Passan, Clevinger was with Plesac on Saturday, though he reportedly flew home with the team Sunday.
