Clevinger came up with the Cleveland Guardians in 2016 and pitched there until being traded to the San Diego Padres in 2020.
The 31-year-old missed all of 2021 recovering from Tommy John surgery, but made his return in May of 2022.
He went 7-7 with a 4.33 ERA in 23 appearances and 22 starts.
Adding Clevinger to the mix gives them a solid group of starters in their rotation.

White Sox Have Solid Rotation Ready For ’23
The right-hander will be another year removed from Tommy John surgery entering the 2023 season.
The White Sox finished with a record of 81-81, 11 games behind the Guardians in the American League Central.
The White Sox had won the division in 2021.
But with the addition of Clevinger, they have a chance of regaining their AL Central prominence.
These are five solid starters that will give the team a chance to compete for a spot in the postseason after a disappointing 2022 season.
Clevinger also brings some postseason experience to the White Sox rotation, having been a part of three division winning teams with the Guardians from 2016-18.
More moves could soon follow as the White Sox look to close the gap in the AL Central.
