RHP Clevinger (biceps) scratched from Padres’ start

San Diego Padres right-hander Mike Clevinger was scratched from Saturday night’s start against the Seattle Mariners with right biceps tightness.

Clevinger (3-2, 3.10 ERA) was acquired from Cleveland in a blockbuster trade at the Aug. 31 deadline.

The Padres (33-19) can clinch a National League playoff berth this weekend.

“We’re just being probably extra cautious (with Clevinger) more than anything,” Padres manager Jayce Tingler said before Saturday’s game. “Just give it another couple days and go from there.”

Right-hander Luis Patino (0-0, 5.52 ERA), one of the Padres’ top prospects, replaced Clevinger in the lineup. This will be the first major league start for the 20-year-old, who has made nine relief appearances this season.
