Corey Kluber was handed a no-decision on Friday despite blanking the Astros over 6 1/3 innings.
Kluber left with the lead, but the bullpen (Andrew Miller and Cody Allen) blew it in the eighth. He struck out seven in the no-decision and moved past Bob Lemon and Early Wynn for third place on the franchise strikeout list. Kluber hasn’t disappointed those who were aggressive early on in drafts this spring. He’s 7-2 with a 2.17 ERA and 78/10 K/BB ratio in 78 2/3 innings over 11 starts. May 26 - 1:03 AM

Corey Kluber held the Astros to two runs in seven innings and earned a 5-4 win on Saturday.

Carlos Correa punished him with a two-run homer in the sixth inning but that was all the damage the Indians' ace would yield in the quality start. He punched out 10 batters without issuing a base-on-balls in the contest. He improves to 7-2 with a 2.36 ERA and 0.84 WHIP after 10 starts. The two-time Cy Young Award winner might make it a trio if he keeps this up.

Corey Kluber allowed two unearned runs over seven innings as the Indians crushed the Royals 11-2 on Sunday.

The two unearned runs were the only allowed by Kluber, and he struck out four without allowing a walk. While you'd like to see more strikeouts, it's tough to argue with the results, and Kluber's season ERA is down to 2.34 to go along with six wins and an impressive 61/10 strikeout-to-walk ratio. He has a marquee match-up on Saturday when the Indians travel to Houston to take on the Astros.
May 13 - 4:39 PM

Corey Kluber was less than his stellar self Tuesday in Milwaukee, permitting three runs over six innings.

Kluber gave up a couple home runs on the night, including a mammoth shot to pitcher Brent Suter in what was certainly one of the most improbable occurrences in baseball this season. The reigning American League Cy Young winner has now served up five longballs over his last two starts after giving up five over his first six outings. Kluber faces the Tigers and Astros on the road next week.
May 8 - 11:01 PM

Corey Kluber let up six hits and three runs over seven innings Wednesday in the Indians’ win over Texas.

Kluber racked up six strikeouts in the victory and didn’t walk anyone. The right-hander served up three long balls on Wednesday, all solo shots, but otherwise kept the damage to a minimum. He was pitching with a big lead all day as the Indians pounced on Matt Moore for 10 runs in their first three innings. Kluber failed to win either of his first two starts this year but has since rattled off five straight victories. He’ll look to extend that streak Tuesday against Milwaukee.
May 2 - 5:07 PM

Corey Kluber finished one out of shy of a complete game while allowing two runs over 8 2/3 innings in Friday’s 6-5 victory over the Mariners.

Kluber was pulled after giving up a single to Kyle Seager with two outs in the ninth. Cody Allen went on to give-up a three-run homer to Mike Zunino, but he managed to hang on to finish off the victory. Kluber struck out 10 batters while allowing four hits and three walks. The only damage was a two-run homer off the bat of Mitch Haniger in the seventh. Kluber has delivered on his "fantasy ace" status so far, posting a 2.18 ERA and 47/9 K/BB ratio in 45 1/3 innings over six starts. He gets the Rangers next in another home start.
Apr 27 - 10:38 PM

Corey Kluber picked up his third win over the season while giving up three runs in seven innings against the Orioles on Sunday.

Kluber wasn't as sharp as he has been in his other starts, but the 2017 Cy Young winner was still able to have an effective outing by keeping the aggressive Baltimore lineup off-balance -- for the most part. Manny Machado did hit two homers off the ace, but his ERA still sits at a very crisp 1.96. He'll look to lower that in his next start on Friday against the Mariners.
Apr 22 - 4:19 PM

Corey Kluber pitched 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball to beat the Twins in Puerto Rico on Tuesday.

Kluber is rocking a 1.52 ERA through four starts. Dating back to mid-August of last year, he's gone 13 straight regular-season starts without allowing more than two runs. He's due to face the Orioles next time out.
Apr 17 - 10:51 PM

Corey Kluber will start Tuesday's series opener against the Twins in Puerto Rico.

This follows back-to-back rainouts of their scheduled series against the Blue Jays over the weekend. Kluber will be followed by Carlos Carrasco on Tuesday before Trevor Bauer and Mike Clevinger will pitch against the Orioles on Friday and Saturday. The change in schedule has allowed the club to skip Josh Tomlin's turn.
Apr 16 - 8:51 AM

Sunday's game between the Blue Jays and Indians has been postponed due to inclement weather.

It's the second day in a row that they've been rained out. The two games will be made up as part of a doubleheader on May 3. Corey Kluber will be pushed back again and will now start Tuesday in Minnesota. Jaime Garcia will take the ball Monday versus the Royals.
Apr 15 - 9:43 AM

Saturday's Blue Jays-Indians game was postponed due to rain.

The contest has been rescheduled for May 3. Scheduled starters Corey Kluber and Jaime Garcia will likely be pushed back to Sunday's series finale instead.
Apr 14 - 5:35 PM

Corey Kluber overwhelmed the Tigers on Monday, striking out 13 over eight innings in a 2-0 victory.

Kluber allowed just two hits and walked one, but since it did take him 103 pitches to get 24 outs, he wasn't allowed to go for the shutout. The win was the first for Kluber in three starts, though he's pitched well each time out. He has a 27/4 K/BB ratio to go along with his 1.57 ERA. What might be more impressive is that it's a worse K/BB than his 265/36 mark from last year (6.75:1 vs. 7.36:1).
Apr 9 - 11:12 PM

Corey Kluber pitched well on Wednesday against the Angels, giving up just two runs in seven innings in a no decision.

For the second straight outing, Kluber's only mistake was a two-run homer by the DH: It was Nelson Cruz in the opener, and it's Shohei Ohtani this time. Outside of those pitches, the 2017 Cy Young winner has looked excellent, to no one's surprise. We'll see Kluber back on the mound on Tuesday against the woeful Detroit lineup. Be prepared to pony up for him in daily fantasy leagues.
Apr 4 - 8:52 PM

Corey Kluber surrendered two runs on six hits while tossing an eight-inning complete game in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Mariners.

Kluber retired the first two batters in the bottom of the first before Robinson Cano singled. Nelson Cruz then proceeded to crush a two-run home run off the right-hander. After that loud hiccup, though, Kluber settled down fantastically. He would allow just four hits over his next seven innings on the mound, finishing the evening with eight strikeouts against one walk. The reigning AL Cy Young winner figures to be in contention for the award once more this season so long as he can maintain his health. Kluber will next take the ball in a road date with the Angels as he continues to sharpen up for the new season.
Mar 30 - 12:51 AM

Corey Kluber fired off six innings of two-run ball in Saturday's Cactus League win over the Rangers.

Kluber struck out six and walked two on the afternoon. The lone blemish on his line came when Elvis Andrus took him deep for a two-run home run with one out in the first inning. And with that, the ace right-hander has wrapped up his work this spring. He pitched very well -- not that he needed to prove anything -- and most importantly came away sans any lingering injury concerns. Onward to Opening Day, now. Kluber will take the ball against the Mariners on Thursday evening to get the campaign underway.
