Indians line up rotation, Zach McAllister to pitch home opener


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7:38 pm ET) Indians manager Terry Francona has set the rotation for the first week of the season, with Zach McAllister slated to serve as the No. 4 starter and pitch the team's home opener next Friday against the Tigers, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Corey Kluber draws the Opening Day assignment Monday against the Astros after winning the AL Cy Young award in 2014. He'll be followed by Carlos Carrasco Tuesday and Trevor Bauer Wednesday. McAllister will then face the Tigers Friday, with T.J. House taking the mound Saturday and Kluber pitching Sunday.


Indians' Corey Kluber allows three runs in spring finale


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7:21 pm ET) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber surrendered three earned runs on five hits in 4 2/3 innings while striking out five and walking none in his team's 5-2 loss to the Giants.

Kluber was able to hold the Giants scoreless through three innings before he allowed one run in the fourth and two in the fifth. He closes the spring with a 3.86 ERA and 25:5 K:BB ratio in 23 1/3 innings. Kluber will square off with the Astros Monday on Opening Day.

"It's exciting for me personally that next time out there will be when it counts," Kluber said. "I'm happy with where I'm at both physically and mentally. I'm ready to go. I'm looking forward to it."


Indians pitcher Corey Kluber reaches seventh inning in start


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber threw 107 pitches Friday in his outing against the Diamondbacks. Kluber, the AL Cy Young award winner in 2014, reached the seventh inning, but was pulled before recording an out.

"I felt good," Kluber said to MLB.com. "I feel like I'm getting stronger each time out. I was able to get the pitch count up to where I wanted to today. For the most part, I executed pretty well."

Kluber allowed six hits with nine strikeouts in the outing.

"He wanted to get out there pretty good," manager Terry Francona said of Kluber's high pitch count. "So, the next outing, if he wanted, if he feels like scaling it back, he can. But, he feels like he's ready. I thought he did a really good job. He's in such good shape. Most guys, when they get out to that point, they're kind of pushing to get through it. He's strong."


Corey Kluber, Indians not close in extension talks


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Corey Kluber's representatives and the Indians met in Goodyear last week, but don't appear close to finding common ground on a long-term deal, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman on Tuesday.

"The lines of communication between myself and the Indians are and will continue to be open," said Kluber's agent B.B. Abbott, who declined to comment on the face-to-face meetings he had with the club.

Kluber, the 2014 American League Cy Young winner, was tabbed Cleveland's Opening Day starter after going 18-9 with a 2.44 ERA and 269:51 K:BB ratio in 235 2/3 innings last season.


Indians ace Corey Kluber gets in rhythm in start Sunday


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

"That feeling that I've been looking for on a consistent basis came today," Kluber said.


Indians pitcher Corey Kluber struggles in outing Tuesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2015) Indians Opening Day starter Corey Kluber struggled to find a rhythm in Tuesday's outing against the Reds. Kluber surrendered two solo home runs and wasn't feeling quite right on the mound, reports MLB.com.

"I was rushing to the plate a little bit," Kluber said. "Maybe it was the little extra intensity or whatnot, but I just wasn't quite staying over the rubber and giving myself time to catch up. The last inning, I made that adjustment and obviously the results were there."

Kluber finished with four innings pitched, allowing three runs and four strikeouts.


Indians' Corey Kluber to draw Opening Day start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Kluber was the clear choice to start on Opening Day after winning the American League Cy Young Award last season. He went 18-9 with a 2.44 ERA and 269:51 K:BB ratio in 235 2/3 innings during 2014.


Indians' Corey Kluber to pitch simulated game Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber will pitch in a simulated game Thursday rather than take part in Cactus League play, MLB.com reports.

"We're just trying to monitor his intensity," manager Terry Francona said. "Like all our pitchers, the guys we know are going to pitch with us, we try to communicate with them and do what is in their best interest to get ready for a season. This way he can work on some things and not have to worry about the scoreboard or people in the stands. It probably tones down the intensity, not that he's not trying to throw. I think it's really helpful."

Francona added that Kluber isn't the only pitcher that the team is preparing in this fashion. The Cleveland ace signed a one-year deal earlier Wednesday.

Kluber emerged last season to post an 18-9 record with a 2.44 ERA and 269 strikeouts, joining Roger Clemens, Pedro Martinez and Randy Johnson as the only pitchers since 1987 to record at least 18 wins, an ERA under 2.50 and 260 strikeouts.


Corey Kluber pitches three innings in spring debut for Indians


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Kluber allowed one run on three hits for the Indians, striking out one. 

"Not bad," Kluber told MLB.com's William Boor. "I wasn't very sharp, I didn't do a very good job of working ahead of guys, but I felt good physically, that's the most important thing."

"I think it all starts with fastball command and after you establish that you kind of move on to the other stuff," Kluber added. "For me, I'd like to have my fastball command there before I get into a game."

Indians SP Corey Kluber will work on fine tuning pitch sequencing


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2015) Coming off his AL Cy Young campaign in 2014, Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber doesn't plan to make any major changes this spring, per MLB.com.

He said he will work on improving his changeup and looking into potentially altering his pitch sequencing.

"Some guys who win the Cy Young," catcher Yan Gomes said, "the next year they still live on that fame from the year before and they don't focus on the next year. The kind of guy that Corey is, he's going to keep moving forward. And he knows that every year it seems like he's got a lot more on his shoulders. He's got to lead a staff this year. From the experience that we all took from last year, I think it's going to be exciting."


Indians to consider multiyear extension for Corey Kluber


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2015) 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
(1/23/2015) 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.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
