The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim selected Clevinger in the 4th round of the 2011 Major League Baseball draft. He spent 2011 with the rookie-level Orem Owlz, then was promoted to the Cedar Rapids Kernels the following year, pitching in 8 games. He had elbow reconstruction surgery, and as a result, only pitched in 3 total games in 2013.
Following pitching for 2 separate minor league organizations for the Angels in 2014, on August 7 he was traded to the Cleveland Indians for Vinnie Pestano. Clevinger spent 2015 with the Double-A Akron RubberDucks, going 9–8 with a 2.73 received run average (ERA). The Indians added him to their 40-man roster following the season.
