Corey Kluber struck out nine while scattering three hits in a complete-game, 6-0 shutout of the Rays on Tuesday.
Two of those three hits, all singles, came in the ninth inning with Kluber over 100 pitches, as he flat-out dominated the Rays for most of the game. It was the third time this year he's struck out nine or more in a start, and the win pulled him to 7-7 overall. Kluber will carry a 3.86 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 103/22 K/BB ratio into Monday's game against the Braves. Jun 21 - 10:19 PM

Corey Kluber was pounded for a career high-tying eight runs in five-plus innings by the Royals on Wednesday.

The Indians brought Kluber back out for the sixth even though he had just given up four runs in the fifth (in addition to two in the first). The first two hitters singled against him, and he was finally pulled. Both runners later came around to score. It's the second time in his career Kluber has allowed eight runs. He also did it May 10, 2013 against the Tigers. Kluber had allowed two runs over 15 innings in his previous two starts this month, one of which came against the Royals.

Corey Kluber went the distance against the Angels on Friday, pitching a three-hitter in a 6-2 victory.

Kluber struck out eight and walked one in his second complete game of the year. Since opening the season 0-3 with a 6.16 ERA, he's posted a 2.97 ERA and a 68/14 K/BB ratio in 69 2/3 innings over 10 starts.
Jun 11 - 1:00 AM

Corey Kluber was on a roll in Sunday's win over the Royals, tossing six innings of shutout ball before a lengthy rain delay ended his afternoon.

Kluber struck out six, walked two and allowed just two hits. Through six innings, he had thrown a reasonable 82 pitches. Unfortunately, the heavens proceeded to play dice with the game and a rain delay of around three hours prevented Kluber from pitcher deeper into the contest. The right-handed ace has been up-and-down through his first 12 starts, but his numbers have slowly begun to round into shape. He will carry a 3.98 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 79/18 K/BB ratio (79 2/3 innings) into a road date with the Angels next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 5 - 6:49 PM

Corey Kluber was charged with six runs over six innings of work in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

He served up home runs to Bryan Holaday and Jurickson Profar in the outing, giving up eight hits on the night. Kluber did at least strike out six batters without issuing a walk. It's been an inconsistent first two months for the right-hander, as he'll take a 4.15 ERA into June. However, his 1.11 WHIP and 73/16 K/BB ratio over 73 2/3 frames suggest a better ERA lies ahead. Kluber will get the Royals on Sunday.
May 31 - 9:37 PM

Corey Kluber was fantastic in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the White Sox, firing 7 1/3 innings of two-run ball while striking out nine.

Only one of the two runs on Kluber's line was earned. The nine strikeouts stand as his second-best effort of 2016. After struggling for much of April, the ace right-hander has worked his ERA down to 3.78. He also holds a 1.11 WHIP and 67/16 K/BB ratio over 66 2/3 innings. He will look to continue to round into form in a home start against the Rangers next time he takes the ball.
May 25 - 5:21 PM

Corey Kluber picked up his third victory of the season on Friday, limiting the Red Sox to two runs on five hits over seven strong innings.

The right-hander punched out six on the evening while walking two and scattering five hits. The Red Sox scored single runs in each of the first two innings, but Kluber was able to bear down and keep them off the board the remainder of the night. He now sports a 4.10 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 58/15 K/BB ratio across 59 1/3 innings on the season. He'll take on the White Sox his next time out in Chicago on Wednesday.
May 20 - 10:26 PM

Corey Kluber allowed four runs over 6 2/3 innings in a loss to the Twins on Saturday.

Like in his last outing, Kluber started out strong, tossing four scoreless innings, before things went downhill in the fifth. A Juan Centeno two-run homer started the scoring, and the Twins added runs in each of the next two innings to chase the right-hander. He gave up seven hits and three walks in total, striking out seven. He's now 2-5 with a pedestrian 4.30 ERA on the year. The signs are still there that Kluber can and will be better than this, and he's got a great shot at a better result Thursday against the Reds.
May 14 - 7:58 PM

Corey Kluber lasted just 2 2/3 innings on Monday, giving up five runs in a loss to the Astros.

Fresh off a shutout of the Tigers in which he showed his best velocity of the year, Kluber turned in a stinker tonight. He actually started out well enough, retiring six of the first seven batters he faced. In the third, he gave up five hits and walk before finally getting his first out. He quickly got a second, but he then walked Carlos Gomez and was replaced by Kyle Crockett. It was his shortest start since 2014 and tied for the second shortest of his career.
May 9 - 11:39 PM

Corey Kluber twirled a gem with Wednesday's complete-game shutout against the Tigers, striking out seven and scattering five hits.

Kluber spun his wheels out of the gate in 2016, but has been brilliant in his last three starts. He's only allowed three earned runs in his last 24 innings, striking out 23 batters and walking just two. The right-hander benefited from some nifty defense at the hands of Francisco Lindor on Wednesday, but that isn't projected to change anytime soon. In other words, that's a feature, not a bug. Kluber has won two of his last three games and has a 3.35 ERA with a 2.57 FIP in 43 innings. He'll next get the Astros on the road.
May 4 - 8:43 PM

Corey Kluber gave up three runs (two earned) in seven innings as part of a no-decision against the Phillies on Friday.

All three runs scored in the fifth inning. Kluber gave up five hits in all while striking out six and walking none. The 30-year-old was a bit of a disappointment through his first three starts, but he’s moving in the right direction now. While his ERA sits at 4.24, he has a solid 35/5 K/BB ratio over 34 innings.
Apr 29 - 10:55 PM

Corey Kluber racked up 10 strikeouts over eight innings of one-run ball in Saturday's victory over the Tigers.

Kluber was in dominant form all afternoon, allowing just two hits without issuing a walk. The only damage against him came on a solo homer by Jarrod Saltalamacchia in the fifth inning. He'll look to further improve upon a 4.67 ERA and 1.07 WHIP on Friday when he takes on the Phillies in Philadelphia.
Apr 23 - 4:17 PM

Corey Kluber struggled mightily in Sunday's 6-0 loss to the Mets, surrendering six runs on nine hits over six innings.

Kluber's season is off to a less than encouraging beginning. Through three starts, he has surrendered 13 runs in 19 innings. During Sunday's showdown with the Mets, the 30-year-old right-hander surrendered all the damage on his line within the first two innings, allowing a trio of runs in each frame. He finished the day having struck out eight and walked one. While his current 6.61 ERA and 1.42 WHIP are worth an eyebrow raise, we will continue to preach patience. Kluber will (once again) try to right the ship in his next start, a road date with the Tigers.
Apr 17 - 4:03 PM

Corey Kluber turned in 7 2/3 innings of work in Tuesday's loss to the Rays, surrendering all three runs on his line after the sixth inning.

Tough loss for Kluber, who cruised through six innings before surrendering an RBI single to Desmond Jennings in the seventh inning. One frame later, the former AL Cy Young winner coughed up a two-run homer to Logan Forsythe with two outs. He was pulled after that dinger. While he took the loss here, Kluber only allowed four hits on the evening while striking out six and walking two. He has surrendered seven runs in 13 innings through two starts. Despite the very early troubles to open the 2016 campaign, fantasy owners should not be concerned. Kluber will try to get on track in a home start against the Mets next time he toes the rubber.
Apr 13 - 12:02 AM

Corey Kluber surrendered four earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Tuesday in a loss to the Red Sox.

The game was supposed to be played on Monday before wet and freezing conditions resulted in a postponement. That may have thrown Kluber off his routine and he didn't look like his usual dominant self on Tuesday afternoon at Progressive Field, yielding nine hits and walking two. The ace right-hander should be able to bounce back this weekend on the south side of Chicago.
