Corey Kluber pitched well in Sunday's no-decision against the Blue Jays, striking out eight while allowing two runs on six hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Kluber did walk four, but outside of those free passes, it was a mostly blemish-free afternoon for the former AL Cy Young winner. Both runs on his line scored in the third inning, with Melvin Upton Jr. clocking a solo home run and Josh Donaldson notching an RBI single. Kluber will carry a crisp 3.13 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 171/42 K/BB ratio (169 2/3 innings) into a road date with the Rangers next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 21 - 4:12 PM

Corey Kluber struck out seven while tossing six frames of one-run ball in Tuesday's 3-1 victory over the White Sox.

He needed 112 pitches to get through his six innings, but it was still a superb start for Kluber in spite of some inefficiency. The right-hander surrendered seven hits on the night and walked only one batter, with a Justin Morneau solo homer being the only dent on the scoreboard. Kluber's ERA has dropped from 3.79 to 3.15 over his last seven starts. He'll face the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Corey Kluber turned in a quality start Thursday, allowing three runs over six innings in a win over the Angels.

Kluber gave up a pair of solo homers and was generally not at the height of his powers, striking out just three, but the Indians provided him with plenty of offense to earn his 12th win of the year. The right-hander has now won four straight decisions and owns a 3.21 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 156/36 K/BB ratio in 23 starts. He's also rattled off six consecutive quality starts. Kluber will attempt to keep both of those streaks going Tuesday against the White Sox.

Corey Kluber delivered a strong performance in Saturday's victory over the Yankees, racking up eight strikeouts over eight innings of two-run ball.

Kluber scattered five hits and a walk on the afternoon. All of the damage against him came in the second inning, on an RBI double by Gary Sanchez who then raced home on a wild pitch. Now 11-8 on the season, Kluber will carry a 3.22 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 153/34 K/BB ratio into Friday's start against the Angels.
Aug 6 - 4:10 PM

Corey Kluber impressed in Sunday's win over the A's, tossing seven innings of five-hit, shutout ball.

Kluber struck out seven and walked two on the afternoon. He finished his seven innings of work having thrown a healthy 103 pitches (67 strikes). With the victory, he improved to 10-8 on the season. The one-time AL Cy Young winner will try for another strong performance when the Indians hit the road for a date with the Yankees next time he toes the rubber. He will bring a 3.27 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 145/33 K/BB ratio through 21 starts (143 innings) into that Bronx affair.
Jul 31 - 6:28 PM

Corey Kluber (calf) pitched well in Sunday's no-decision against the Orioles, allowing three runs on six hits over seven innings.

A right calf cramp forced Kluber out of his last start, but he showed no signs of a recurrence on Sunday. Against the Orioles, he struck out eight and walked one. The O's posted two runs against him in the fourth inning, with the final run on his line scoring one frame later courtesy of a solo homer by Jonathan Schoop. Kluber will carry a 3.44 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 138/31 K/BB ratio (136 innings) into a home start against the A's next time he toes the rubber. He has had his rocky moments this season, but his overall numbers look more/less like they should for a player of his caliber. Maybe drop the ERA down a bit.
Jul 24 - 6:06 PM

Corey Kluber exited Monday's start against the Royals with a right calf cramp.

Kluber was cruising through seven scoreless innings and actually came out to the mound for the eighth, but Indians manager Terry Francona and trainer James Quinlan thought it was best to take him out of the game. That didn't work out so well for the Indians, as the Royals put up a seven-spot in the eighth, but fortunately Kluber's issue isn't considered serious. He struck out eight and walked three before exiting and now owns a 3.42 ERA and 130/30 K/BB ratio through 129 innings this season.
Jul 18 - 10:57 PM

The former AL Cy Young Winner owns a 3.79 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 114/27 K/BB ratio across 114 innings. He will finish out the first half with a home start against the Yankees.
Jul 3 - 4:19 PM

Corey Kluber held the Braves to just two runs across eight innings in a 5-3 victory Tuesday.

Kluber was pushed back a day in order to get extra rest following last week's shutout. He came close to another shutout in this one, yielding only a two-out, two-RBI single in the sixth inning. He was at just 87 pitches through eight, but the Indians pinch-hit for him in the top of the ninth and wound up breaking the tie. Kluber will carry a 3.50 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 110/23 K/BB ratio over 110 2/3 frames into this weekend's start in Toronto. The Indians have won 11 in a row.
Jun 28 - 10:40 PM

Corey Kluber's next scheduled start has been pushed back from Monday to Tuesday.

The Indians are giving Kluber an extra day of rest after he threw 115 pitches in a three-hit shutout in his last outing. He'll still make two starts during the upcoming week. Trevor Bauer will flip-flop turns with Kluber and take the ball Monday.

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.
