It appears Indians starting pitcher Mike Clevinger’s comeback is complete.

Terry Francona said Clevinger will get the start Monday when the Indians open a series in Texas.

The team placed Clevinger on the Injured List on April 9th with a right upper back/Teres major muscle strain, but made what will be his final rehab start Tuesday night for the Akron RubberDucks.

He pitched five and a third innings of shutout baseball, allowing three hits, no walks, striking out five. He threw 67 pitches, 51 for strikes, with his fast ball topping out at 99 miles per hour.
