Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Dylan Floro works against the Colorado Rockies during the sixth inning of a baseball game Thursday, Sept. 17, 2020, in Denver.
While Clevinger was among the 15 pitchers on the Padres roster released Tuesday, fellow starter Dinelson Lamet was again left off because of injury.
The Dodgers added a pitcher to their roster for the NLDS, where they will have 14 pitchers and 14 position players after carrying only 13 pitchers for the first round series against Milwaukee.
Right-handed reliever Dylan Floro (3-0, 2.59 ERA) was the pitcher added for the longer NLDS.
The Padres last week became the first team to use eight or more pitchers in three consecutive playoff games.
