Corey Kluber remains on roll by shutting down Twins

|(9/11/14) Indians ace Corey Kluber continued his rebound from a mini-slump Thursday with his second straight strong performance.
Kluber yielded just two earned runs on eight hits in 8 1/3 innings against Minnesota to raise his record to 15-9 and lower his ERA to 2.45, which ranks fifth in the majors. He walked none and fanned seven. His effort followed a complete game shutout of the White Sox.
His attempt at a complete game was lost when he surrendered three singles in the ninth. Kluber will try to keep up the good work Tuesday in Houston.
Corey Kluber goes the distance Saturday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/6/14) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber tossed a complete game Saturday against the White Sox.
Kluber allowed one run on five hits over nine innings. The run was unearned. He struck out eight and did not issue any walks during the start. Kluber gave up his only run in the third inning. Jordan Danks singled, and stole second during the inning. With two outs, Danks managed to come home on a fielding error. The issue didn't slow Kluber down. He still managed to go the full nine innings. Kluber threw 104 pitches during the outing.
With the win, Kluber improved to 14-9. He'll take on the Twins in his next start.
Ranking starting pitchers for 2015
Pitching is the dominant force in the game now. Our Scott White says more potential aces mean much greater much less need to reach for one on Draft Day.
|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.
