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.

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.
Jun 9 - 11:06 PM

Corey Kluber took a complete-game loss after giving up four runs in eight innings Wednesday against the Royals.

Kluber struck out nine, but his three-game winning streak was snapped tonight. It's the fourth time this year that he's allowed at least nine hits, which is at least partly the fault of the poor Indians defense.
Jun 3 - 11:19 PM

Corey Kluber punched out 13 batters and gave up three runs over seven innings in a 5-3 win over the Mariners on Thursday.

He gave up seven hits and walked one. Kluber has 50 strikeouts over his past four starts, which means that he very likely enjoyed a better month than we all did (he gave up a combined five runs over 32 innings in those outings). Prior to that stretch he was 0-5 with a 5.04 ERA. But if you sold low at that time, you deserve what's coming to you. Kluber leads the league with 96 strikeouts.
May 29 - 1:00 AM

Corey Kluber limited the Reds to one run over eight innings Saturday in a 2-1 Indians victory.

Kluber gave up nine hits -- including three doubles -- but he didn't walk a batter and the only run he allowed came on a second-inning sacrifice fly. The reigning American League Cy Young Award winner has now been dominant in three straight outings and should continue the roll next week in Seattle. It would have been smart to buy low a few weeks ago.
May 23 - 6:57 PM

Corey Kluber struck out 12 batters while allowing only one run in nine innings, but was handed a no-decision as the Indians lost in 10 innings to the White Sox on Monday.

Kluber flirted with a no-hitter and struck out 18 in eight shutout innings against the Cardinals on Wednesday, so he had quite the act to follow. He did a great job nevertheless, scattering five hits and a walk. Kluber allowed his only run to score in the sixth inning when he uncorked a wild pitch. The right-hander's ERA is down to 3.79 with a 1.12 WHIP and a 76/12 K/BB ratio in 61 2/3 innings. He'll aim for another double-digit strikeout performance the next time he toes the rubber over the weekend at home against the Reds.
May 18 - 10:56 PM

Corey Kluber struck out 18 batters over eight scoreless innings Wednesday night in the Indians' 2-0 blanking of the visiting Cardinals.

The only hit for St. Louis was a seventh-inning single up the middle from Jhonny Peralta. Kluber was absolutely brilliant in what will go down as one of the best eight-inning pitching performances of all time. And he probably could have challenged for 20 strikeouts had the Indians let him pitch the ninth (his pitch count was at 113). Kluber entered the outing with an 0-5 record and 5.04 season ERA, but it was only a matter of time for the reigning American League Cy Young Award winner to find a groove. He'll try to stay hot next week against the White Sox.
May 13 - 9:19 PM

Corey Kluber's miserable beginning to the 2015 season continued on Thursday, surrendering five runs on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings against the Royals.

On the plus side, Kluber was able to rack up seven strikeouts while walking only two. The Royals pounced on the reigning American League Cy Young winner early, putting up four runs in the first inning, highlighted by Eric Hosmer's three-run blast. He'll head into Wednesday's start against the Cardinals with an 0-5 record, 5.04 ERA and 1.39 WHIP through 44 2/3 innings.
May 7 - 7:51 PM

Corey Kluber was hammered again Saturday, yielding five runs -- four earned -- over five innings in a loss to the Blue Jays.

Kluber is now 0-4 in his followup to last year's Cy Young campaign. He gave up eight hits and two walks Saturday to the visiting Jays, watching his ERA jump from 4.24 to 4.62. He's a good bet to get it together at some point, and the 29-year-old right-hander has a favorable matchup next week against the light-hitting Twins.
May 2 - 7:48 PM

Corey Kluber fell to 0-3 after surrendering six runs (four earned) in 6 1/3 innings in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Royals.

Kluber, for his second start in a row, allowed double-digit hits. The Royals eked out single runs in the second, third, and sixth innings before rallying for a three-run frame in the seventh to chase him from the game. Along with the 10 hits, Kluber walked two and struck out five. The defending AL Cy Young Award winner has a 4.24 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and a 36/7 K/BB ratio in 34 innings. Kluber will vie for his first win of the season after the calendar turns to May when he opposes the Blue Jays at home.
Apr 27 - 10:05 PM

Corey Kluber was hammered for six earned runs over six innings Wednesday in a loss to the White Sox.

It was an uncharacteristically awful start from Kluber, who dominated the Pale Hose last season en route to his first Cy Young Award. He issued just one walk and struck out six, but the White Sox pounded him for 13 hits -- including four doubles and a Jose Abreu home run. The 29-year-old right-hander is a good bet to get back on track next time out against the Royals.
Apr 22 - 5:16 PM

Corey Kluber took a no-decision Friday after allowing two runs over eight innings against the Twins.

Kluber had a perfect game until giving up a leadoff single to Oswaldo Arcia in the bottom of the sixth inning. He ended up allowing two runs in the frame, which cost him a chance at a win. Still, it was a very solid outing, as he gave up just three hits and one walk while striking out eight batters. The 2014 AL Cy Young Award winner is still looking for his first win, but he has a 2.49 ERA and 25/4 K/BB ratio through 21 2/3 innings. This is no one-year wonder.
