Corey Kluber righted the ship in a big way on Thursday, going the distance and striking out 11 in the Indians' 5-1 win over the Royals.
Even with all of the strikeouts, Kluber needed just 101 pitches to finish off the Royals. 75 of them were strikes. The one run he allowed was unearned, courtesy of a Nick Swisher error. Kluber lowered his ERA from 5.40 to 3.90 with the performance. We wouldn't necessarily expect more starts like this one, but he's never stopped looking like a fair bet in mixed leagues.

Corey Kluber was hit hard in Saturday’s loss to the Blue Jays, surrendering four runs on nine hits over 6 2/3 innings of work.

Kluber walked three and struck out three on the afternoon. A defensive miscue by Nick Swisher that wasn’t ruled an error played a role in the two-run first inning, and was a hole that the Indians could never dig out of. Kluber will now look to improve upon an unsightly 5.40 ERA and 1.71 WHIP when he takes on the Royals at home on Thursday.
Apr 19 - 3:51 PM

Corey Kluber allowed two runs on eight hits over 7 1/3 innings but took a no-decision against the White Sox on Sunday.

After a clunker to start the season, Kluber has now thrown two quality starts in his last two outings. He didn't walk a batter in the game while striking out six. Kluber's next start will come next weekend against the Blue Jays.
Apr 13 - 8:32 PM

Corey Kluber got the win in Tuesday's 8-6 win over the Padres, allowing three runs in six innings.

Kluber allowed nine hits, including five doubles. On the other hand, Kluber struck out nine without issuing a walk. A bit of a mixed bag for sure, but Kluber should continue to post good numbers in the strikeout and walk departments, and those are the best indicators of future success.
Apr 8 - 10:56 PM

Monday's game between the Padres and Indians has been postponed due to rain.

The teams are expected to play a traditional doubleheader on Wednesday. Monday's starters, Corey Kluber and Robbie Erlin, will presumably be pushed back to Tuesday.
Apr 7 - 4:55 PM

Corey Kluber was rocked by the A's in the first game of a doubleheader Wednesday, giving up five runs on eight hits over 3 1/3 innings in the Indians' loss.

Kluber didn't isolate his futility to just one frame, allowing the A's to score at least one run in each of the first three innings. Along with the eight hits allowed, the right-hander also walked three and struck out two in the outing. More was expected of Kluber after a 2013 season in which he went 11-5 with a 3.85 ERA over 147 1/3 innings, and he'll look for a better showing next week against the Padres.
Apr 2 - 6:47 PM

Corey Kluber was magnificent in his final spring start on Thursday, allowing two runs to the D'Backs on five hits and one walk over seven innings.

Kluber ends spring training on a high note. He entered Thursday's start with a 6.64 ERA, but also a 16/2 K/BB ratio. With five strikeouts and one walk against the D'Backs, that ratio jumps up to 21/3. While he won't average better than seven strikeouts for every one walk during the regular season, his spring K/BB ratio speaks more to his talent than his spring ERA.
Mar 27 - 5:23 PM

Corey Kluber allowed 11 hits and seven runs in six innings of work against the Rockies on Saturday.

It was a forgettable start for the right-hander, who only managed one strikeout on the afternoon. And his struggles aren't isolated to one start -- Kluber had a 5.02 ERA coming into the start. Exhibition statistics can be deceiving, so don't worry too much about Kluber's poor spring.
Mar 22 - 9:45 PM

Corey Kluber allowed three runs in 4 1/3 innings in his start against the Reds on Monday.

Kluber allowed seven hits and walked two while striking out five. By ERA, he has had a less-than-stellar spring, but he did enter Monday's start with 10 strikeouts and no walks in ten innings.
Mar 17 - 5:45 PM

Corey Kluber allowed three runs in four innings against the Padres during Wednesday's start.

Kluber was solid through three frames, but tired in the fourth. The right-hander allowed three doubles, a single, and threw a wild pitch before getting out of the inning. The Indians' No. 2 starter is coming off of a season in which he averaged more than four strikeouts per walk in his first full season in the big leagues.
Mar 12 - 5:46 PM

Corey Kluber gave up six runs over 5 1/3 innings Friday against the Twins, but still notched a victory.

Kluber owes this win to his offense. He gave up 10 hits (including a two-run homer by Pedro Florimon) and a walk before being pulled. The 27-year-old hasn't been nearly as effective since coming off the disabled list and could be on the outside looking in for a rotation spot if the Indians make it as far as the ALDS.

Corey Kluber struck out six and was charged with just two runs on six hits and a walk over 5 1/3 frames in Sunday’s 9-2 win over the Astros.

He had thrown only 81 pitches, but Indians manager Terry Francona decided to pull him with one out in the sixth. It’s actually the deepest Kluber has pitched into a game in his four starts since returning from the DL, though he hasn’t allowed more than three runs in any of those outings. He’ll get the Twins on the road in his final regular season start.

Corey Kluber allowed three runs over 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Royals on Tuesday.

After two decent starts off the disabled list, Kluber was less sharp on Tuesday. The right-hander gave up six hits and walked three before being relieved by Rich Hill in the fifth inning. Keep an eye on Kluber in your league, as frustrated owners might cut bait on the 27-year-old in advance of his favorable matchup with the Astros on Sunday.

Corey Kluber pitched five innings of two-run ball for a win Thursday against the White Sox.

Kluber had to deal with some long waits in between innings, so the Indians were quick to get him out of there after five. He ended up allowing six hits, walking one and striking out two.

Corey Kluber allowed two runs over five innings to earn the win in his first start since being activated from the disabled list.

Kluber picked up right where he left off, needing just 64 pitches to get through his five innings. He allowed five hits and a walk on the night, striking out five. He'll be able to last deeper into games as he continues to regain his stamina. Kluber's next outing will come Thursday against the White Sox in Chicago.
