|Corey Kluber pushed back to Thursday |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/16/14) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber will get an extra day of rest before his next start, thanks to the team's off day Monday.
Kluber will now start Thursday in Minnesota, rather than Wednesday, giving him five days of rest before his start. He tossed another gem Friday, lowering his season ERA to 2.41 in 179 1/3 innings of work.

(8/15/14) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber turned in a fantastic start Friday against the Orioles.
Kluber tossed 7 2/3 scoreless innings on five hits. He struck out 10 and walked two during the outing. Kluber only found himself in trouble once during the game. In the third inning, he managed to load the bases with one out. With his back against the wall, Kluber delivered. He struck out the last two hitters of the inning, escaping without giving up a run. Kluber was pulled after giving up a single in the eighth inning. He threw 116 pitches.
The Indians wound up blowing the lead, giving Kluber a no-decision. He’ll take on the Twins in his next start.

(8/9/14) Indians torrid right-hander Corey Kluber continued to pitch himself into the Cy Young Award conversation with another brilliant performance Saturday, this time against the host Yankees.
Kluber pitched shutout ball on four hits in six innings, walking one and fanning 10. He allowed back-to-back singles in the sixth before striking out the side. He has allowed just one run in his last four starts covering 31 1/3 innings. Kluber has won six straight decisions in raising his record to 13-6.
He will try to remain on a roll when the team opens a weekend series Friday night against Baltimore.
|Corey Kluber goes seven-plus innings in dominant win over Reds |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/4/14) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber continued his dominance on Monday at home against the Reds, scattering one run on six hits and two walks over 7 1/3 innings while striking out seven in his team's 7-1 victory.
Kluber (12-6) has logged seven-plus innings in each of his last four starts. Over that span covering 34 innings, he has allowed only three earned runs. He owns a 2.55 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP over 24 starts (165 2/3 innings). His next start will come Saturday in New York against the Yankees.
|Corey Kluber throws 85 pitches in complete-game shutout |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/30/14) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber was dominant Wednesday, needing just 85 pitches to turn in a complete-game shutout in his team's 2-0 win over the Mariners.
Kluber (11-6) gave up just three hits in his nine scoreless innings, striking out eight and walking none. It's his second straight start going nine innings and not giving up an earned run, though he did surrender an unearned run in a no-decision his last time out. Kluber owns a 2.61 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 170:33 K:BB ratio in 158 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to take on the Reds Monday.
|Corey Kluber did not impress many Fantasy owners with his rookie-year performance in 2012, when he put up a 5.14 ERA, but he gained a following in 2013. Settling into the Indians' rotation in late April, the 27-year-old improved his command and turned in an 11-5 record with a 3.85 ERA. Kluber's prospects for this season are actually better than what his stats from his sophomore campaign would indicate. He missed more than a month with a sprained finger, and he wasn't quite the same when he returned for five September starts. Before his disabled list stint, Kluber owned a 3.54 ERA and averaged more than six innings per start, whereas upon his return, he failed to make a single start of six innings or more. With an offseason of rest, Kluber should be good for close to a strikeout per inning along with a mid-3.00s ERA. A lack of an extended track record makes Kluber a risk to take among the top 40 starting pitchers on draft day, but he is a solid mid-to-late round option in standard mixed leagues.
