Indians to consider multiyear extension for Corey Kluber
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1/25/15) The Indians will consider a multiyear extension for pitcher Corey Kluber, according to MLB.com.
General manager Mark Shapiro didn't indicate that the two sides were close to a deal, but said Kluber has all the aspects the team looks for when considering a long-term deal. "Corey represents all of the things we look for in players: dependable, reliable person, committed to his work ethic, talented." Shapiro added, "it's something we'll probably look at over the next couple of months. He has all the precursors that we would look for to enter into a multiyear agreement."
The 28-year-old Kluber is set to make the league-minimum next season, and won't be available for arbitration until 2016. He's under team control through 2018, so there's no hurry for either side to agree to a new deal.
Kluber posted a 2.44 ERA over 235 2/3 innings last year.
Indians P Corey Kluber wants to bring Cleveland a championship
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/23/15) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber told the Akron Beacon Journal Thursday night after being named professional athlete of the year in Cleveland that he's more focused on bringing home a championship, not a contract extension. Kluber noted that his agents have not engaged in any contract talks.
"No, not that I know of," Kluber said. "That's not my job to worry about that, my job is to go out there and pitch. I have agents that can handle that stuff for me when the time comes. My job is to get prepared to play this season."
Kluber is under contract until after the 2018 season. He went 18-9 with a 2.44 ERA over 34 starts. He posted a 1.09 WHIP and 269:51 K:BB ratio over 235 2/3 innings, good enough for him to capture the American League CY Young award last season.
"As cool as it was to win a Cy Young, I think winning a World Series would be a lot better," Kluber said.
Corey Kluber closes it out with tremendous performance
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/26/14) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber finished his 2014 season with a tremendous start Friday against the Rays.
Kluber allowed five hits over eight scoreless innings. He struck out 11 and issued two walks during the outing. Kluber got off to a strong start, striking out the side in the first inning. After giving up his first hit to start the second, Kluber was able to erase the base runner with a double play. The seventh inning was the only time Kluber put two men on base. He was able to pitch out of trouble, securing the scoreless start.
With the win, Kluber improved to 18-9.
Corey Kluber matches career strikeout high
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/21/14) Corey Kluber tied a career-best -- one he set in his previous start -- by striking out 14 Twins in the Indians' 7-2 win on Sunday. After getting 14 Ks against the Astros on Tuesday, Kluber repeated the feat and catapulted himself into the major league lead with 258 strikeouts.
Kluber lasted eight innings, holding the Twins to two runs on seven hits and a walk. He is now 17-9 with a 2.53 ERA. The 28-year-old is now set to make his final appearance of the season on Saturday against the Rays.
|2014 summary: Corey Kluber didn't just emerge as the Indians' ace; he walked off with the 2014 American League Cy Young Award. He went from being a good strikeout pitcher to a great one, and his 269 Ks were two short of tying David Price for the major league lead. Kluber was also one of the best control pitchers in the game, which helped him to be efficient enough to pitch seven innings or more 21 times. His dominant performance resulted in an 18-9 record, 2.44 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and the No. 4 ranking among Fantasy starting pitchers.|
Playing time status: Kluber will head up the Indians' rotation and could approximate last season's 235 2/3 innings.
2015 outlook: Though he doesn't have as long of a track record of success as other elite pitchers, Kluber should be one of the first 10 starters taken in drafts. Should the Indians upgrade their outfield defense, Kluber could be even more valuable, but last season's trio of Michael Brantley, Michael Bourn and David Murphy likely prevented his batting average allowed of .233 from being even lower.
