Corey Kluber was fantastic in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Red Sox, firing eight shutout innings.
Kluber surrendered just two hits while striking out nine and walking two over his eight innings of work. The reigning AL Cy Young winner finishes out the 2015 season with a 3.49 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 245/45 K/BB ratio across 222 innings. These numbers are certainly strong enough to earn him a second award in the trophy case should the writers opt to show him some more love. Sat, Oct 3, 2015 10:55:00 PM

Corey Kluber yielded four runs in six innings, losing Monday's start to the Twins.

Kluber allowed an RBI double to Miguel Sano and a two-run home run to Trevor Plouffe in the first inning, falling behind 3-0 early. He gave up seven hits and three walks while striking out six overall. The right-hander has had a shaky season after winning the Cy Young Award last season, carrying a 3.62 ERA with a 1.07 WHIP and a 236/43 K/BB ratio over 214 innings. Kluber rounds out his season with a home start against the Red Sox.

Corey Kluber surrendered four runs in 3 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Twins.

Whether it's lingering effects from the injury or not, Kluber has not been very effective in either start since returning from his strained right hamstring. Depending on how he's feeling, the Indians could decide to hold him out next week if they're no longer in the wild card race.

Corey Kluber pitched four innings in his return to the Indians' rotation, allowing three runs -- two earned -- in a loss to the Royals.

Kluber struck out five and walked none, but Omar Infante's three-run homer ruined his night. Assuming that his hamstring is fine, he should be ready to throw five or six innings next time out.

Corey Kluber (hamstring) will return to the Indians' rotation Thursday against the Royals.

Kluber hasn't made a start in September due to a strained right hamstring, but he's made progress in side sessions over the last week-plus. The reigning American League Cy Young Award winner is obviously capable of a strong finish for the suddenly-hard-charging Tribe.

Corey Kluber (hamstring) is on track to start on Thursday against the Royals.

Kluber hasn't started since August 29 due to a strained right hamstring, but he's thrown without issues in recent days. The Indians have climbed back into the American League Wild Card hunt and will no doubt welcome the reigning Cy Young winner back with open arms.

Corey Kluber (hamstring) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Friday.

Kluber was scratched from a start a week ago due to a right hamstring strain. The team will see how he feels Saturday before discussing a possible return date.

Corey Kluber has been scratched from Friday's scheduled start due to a right hamstring strain.

It's not clear when Kluber was injured, but it could cost him an additional start after Friday. Josh Tomlin will move up a day to start Friday. The Indians are clinging to faint Wild Card hopes, so it's certainly rotten news for them.

Corey Kluber deserved a win but had to settle for a no-decision Monday, striking out 11 over 7 2/3 frames of one-run ball in a loss to the Cubs.

The right-hander was perfect through 5 1/3 frames, with the Cubs finally denting the scoreboard on an RBI triple from Anthony Rizzo in the seventh inning. Klubot yielded just four hits on the day and didn't walk anyone, throwing a career-high 121 pitches in the process. He will take a 3.43 ERA into next weekend's start against the Angels.

Corey Kluber gave up six runs and four homers in six innings to lose to the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Kluber rightfully called two of the homer popups after the game, though that doesn't really excuse the other two. He did finish with a 9/1 K/BB ratio, and he allowed just two hits aside from the homers. Still, this is kind of the way his year has gone; just looking at the components suggests he could be 13-8 with a 2.53 ERA, not 8-13 with a 3.52 ERA.

Corey Kluber was brilliant in Friday's 6-1 win over the Twins, tossing a complete game while allowing just one run.

Kluber struck out seven, walked one and allowed just one hit in the contest. Said hit left the ballpark, as Joe Mauer took him deep for a solo home run in the fourth inning. Oh what could have been. The reigning AL Cy Young winner boasts a 3.34 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 193/34 K/BB ratio over 180 2/3 innings. He'll head to Fenway to try to shred the Red Sox in his next start.

Corey Kluber brought a no-hitter into the seventh inning but settled for nine innings of one-run ball to beat the Twins on Sunday.

Joe Mauer broke up Kluber's no-hit bid with a single in the seventh inning. The right-hander lost his shutout with two outs in the ninth inning on an Aaron Hicks RBI double. Overall, he yielded only three hits and a walk while striking out 10. The outing lowers Kluber's ERA to 3.46 with a 1.08 WHIP and a 186/33 K/BB ratio over 171 2/3 innings. He'll get the Twins again in his next start, but he'll be in Minnesota this time.

Corey Kluber yielded five runs in 5 2/3 innings, taking his 12th loss of the season on Monday versus the Angels.

Kluber served up 10 hits, including a two-run home run to Conor Gillaspie. He also walked none while striking out four. The right-hander, last year's AL Cy Young Award winner, has been inconsistent this year, sitting on a 3.60 ERA with a 1.12 WHIP and a 176/32 K/BB ratio over 162 2/3 innings. Kluber squares off at home against the Twins next.

Corey Kluber went the distance against the Royals Wednesday, recording six strikeouts while allowing just one run in a 12-1 victory.

He missed out on a shutout when Alex Rios had an RBI groundout in the ninth inning, but that's hardly anything to quibble over. Kluber permitted just five base knocks on the day and issued just one free pass as the Tribe rolled to a win. The reigning American League Cy Young winner has a superb 172/32 K/BB ratio over 157 innings this season to go along with a 3.44 ERA. He'll get the Angels on the road next.

Corey Kluber yielded six runs over seven-plus innings in a loss to the White Sox on Friday.

Kluber gave up two runs over the first seven innings before things fell apart in the eighth. He allowed two runs without recording an out before exiting and Marc Rzepczynski eventually let two inherited runners come in to score. The 2014 AL Cy Young Award winner struck out seven and walked two in the loss and now sits at a surprising 5-11 on the year. He'll carry a 3.59 ERA into a start against the Royals next week at home.
