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.
Aug 15 - 12:10 AM

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.
Aug 9 - 3:53 PM

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.
Aug 4 - 1:15 AM

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.
Jul 29 - 4:11 PM

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.
Jul 24 - 10:29 PM

Corey Kluber held the Reds to three runs over 7 2/3 innings Saturday in a 9-4 victory for the Indians.

Kluber was cruising until the bottom of the eighth inning, when he gave up a Brandon Phillips single and walked Joey Votto. Cody Allen entered and promptly surrendered a three-run shot to Jay Bruce. Kluber walked just one and struck out five. He has a cool 3.38 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and 159/29 K/BB ratio in 141 innings this season.
Jul 18 - 10:44 PM

Corey Kluber pitched well in a losing effort, allowing two runs in eight innings of work on Sunday against the Athletics.

Kluber made one mistake, which resulted in a two-run home run to Stephen Vogt in the fourth inning, and it cost him as opposing starter Sonny Gray wouldn't be scored upon on the afternoon. Kluber limited the A's to four hits and a pair of walks while striking out six. He has a meager 4-10 record, but a 3.37 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and a 154/28 K/BB ratio in 133 1/3 innings. The right-hander's first second-half start will be in Cincinnati against the Reds.
Jul 12 - 3:40 PM

Corey Kluber hurled 6 2/3 shutout innings to earn the win on Tuesday against the Astros.

Kluber limited the opposition to five hits (all singles) and two walks with seven strikeouts. The right-hander has looked downright dominating at times and pedestrian at other points this season. Altogether, he has a 3.45 ERA with a 1.13 WHIP and a 148/26 K/BB ratio in 125 1/3 innings. Kluber will close the chapter on the first half at home against the Athletics next.
Jul 7 - 10:39 PM

Corey Kluber fanned 14 and allowed four runs (three earned) to the Rays over eight innings in earning a no-decision on Thursday.

Kluber scattered seven hits and walked just one in the contest. The Rays dinged him for two runs in the first inning and two in the sixth, but he otherwise managed to keep the scoreboard clean. Despite his brilliance across eight innings, the score remained tied at 4-4 after he exited the game and he was unable to pick up the victory. Nothing new there, as Kluber currently holds a 3-9 record. That aside, he's struck out 24 batters in his last 15 innings and holds a 3.64 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 141/24 K/BB ratio over 118 2/3 innings this season. He'll look to break back into the win column in a home start against the Astros next time he takes the mound.
Jul 2 - 3:23 PM

Corey Kluber racked up ten strikeouts over seven innings in a no-decision against the Orioles on Friday.

It's the fifth time this season that the reigning Cy Young Award winner has reached double digit strikeouts. He allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk over his seven frames, throwing 111 pitches. While he sits at just 3-9 on the year, Kluber boasts a 3.66 ERA and terrific 127/23 K/BB ratio over 110 2/3 innings. He'll take on the Rays in Tampa Bay his next time out on Wednesday.
Jun 26 - 11:31 PM

Corey Kluber found tough sledding in Saturday's loss to the Rays, surrendering four runs on four hits over seven innings.

Kluber might have only allowed four hits, but he compounded his troubles by walking four on the evening. The big blow came in the first inning, when he served up a three-run home run to Evan Longoria. The Rays scored an additional run in the third on an RBI fielder's choice. Kluber did strike out six, but the outing as a whole was not among his finest. He'll take a 3.65 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 117/22 K/BB ratio (in 103 2/3 innings) into his next start, a road showdown with the Orioles.
Jun 20 - 10:37 PM

Corey Kluber suffered his eighth loss of the season on Sunday against the Tigers, yielding two runs in five innings of work.

The first run came on Ian Kinsler's RBI single in the first inning, and the second came on Miguel Cabrera's solo home run in the fourth. They accounted for two of only four hits allowed on the afternoon along with a walk and two strikeouts. The right-hander has lost all three starts in June despite a 3.60 ERA. On the season, he has a 3.54 ERA, a 1.15 WHIP, and a 111/18 K/BB ratio over 96 2/3 innings. Kluber will try to get back in the win column at home against the Rays next.
Jun 14 - 5:53 PM

Corey Kluber took the loss Tuesday despite a good showing, allowing just two runs over seven innings against the Mariners.

It wasn't a dominant start for Kluber by any means, as he allowed seven hits and walked three, but he still pitched well enough to win. Alas, the Indians gave him just one run of support to drop him to 3-7 on the season. Kluber will take a 3.53 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 109/17 K/BB ratio into his next start Sunday at the Tigers.
