Corey Kluber fans 10 in no-decision for Indians


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2015) Indians starter Corey Kluber struck out 10 over seven innings but settled for a no-decision against Baltimore on Friday. 

Kluber allowed three runs on seven hits. He had his 16th game with 10 or more strikeouts since the start of 2014, which ties Chris Sale for the most in MLB over that span. 

"I don't really care about the numbers other than our team's win-loss record," Kluber said.

Kluber will finish a winless month of June. He hasn't won since May 28, going 0-4 in five starts since. 


Indians SP Cory Kluber throws seven innings, takes loss


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/20/2015) Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber didn't have his best stuff during Saturday's game against the Rays.

Kluber tossed seven innings, allowed four earned runs and walked four batters. He managed to strike out six batters, but took the loss, his ninth of the year.

"You want to win games," Kluber said, per MLB.com. "And when you're not scoring, it's hard to win. At the same time, I've got to do a better job of not letting the other team score."

Kluber (3-9) threw 112 pitches before being pulled from the game. He now has a 3.65 ERA with 117 strikeouts and 22 walks in 103 2/3 innings this season.


Corey Kluber drops third straight start for Indians


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2015) Indians starter Corey Kluber lost his third straight start, Sunday against Detroit. 

"He gave up a solo to Miggy," Indians manager Terry Francona said of Kluber, per MLB.com. "Other than that, he was good. Then, the rain came. He simulated an inning and then, once we had the next delay … that didn't seem to make much sense [to have him keep pitching]."

Kluber dropped to 3-8, one loss shy of his total for all of his Cy Young season last year, when he went 18-9.

Kluber gave up two runs on four hits over five innings. He walked one, struck out two and surrendered a home run. His next start is Friday, against Tampa Bay.  


Indians SP Corey Kluber earns seventh loss of season Tuesday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2015) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber produced a solid outing Tuesday, but he received his seventh loss of the season during the 3-2 loss to the Mariners.

"I don't think you can let it get frustrating," Kluber said, per MLB.com. "If you start feeling sorry for yourself or something like that, then that takes your focus away from what it needs to be on, and that's trying to get guys out. I think everybody is going to go through times when they don't get run support. I think if you start to worry about that, that probably gets in the way of pitching and makes pitching harder."

Kluber allowed two runs on seven hits over seven innings of work. He also struck out four and walked three. Kluber (3-7) gave up his first run of the game in the first inning off a double from Robinson Cano. The second run came in the second when Logan Morrison doubled in Brad Miller.

Kluber has pitched at least seven innings in each of his last six starts and he is 3-2 over those starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Sunday at Detroit.


Indians' Corey Kluber strikes out nine in complete-game loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber took a complete-game loss on Wednesday, allowing four earned runs on nine hits and one walk in eight innings while striking out nine in his team's 4-2 defeat against the Royals.

Kluber (3-6) fell behind early, surrendering an RBI single in the bottom of the first inning. While his offense handed him a lead in the top of the third, he gave it right back in the bottom of the inning, surrendering three RBI doubles before escaping the frame in a 4-2 deficit.

"Fortunately in that third, we had the play where [Jason Kipnis] had the good relay, throws the guy out at the plate to kind of eliminate more, but then after that, [Kluber] really buckled down," manager Terry Francona said after the game, per MLB.com. "We had opportunities, too, and just didn't do much with them."

Kluber owns a 3.61 ERA and 105:14 K:BB ratio in 84 2/3 innings. His next start is scheduled for Tuesday against the Mariners at home.


Indians' Corey Kluber strikes out 13 in win vs. Mariners


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2015) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber earned a win on Thursday, allowing three earned runs on seven hits and one walk in seven innings while racking up 13 strikeouts in his team's 5-3 victory over the Mariners.

Kluber (3-5) had given up just two runs in 25 innings over his last three starts, but he was gifted enough run support to keep ahead of the Mariners on Thursday. He surrendered two homers on the day: a solo shot that evened the score at 1-1 in the third inning and a two-run blast in the sixth inning to reduce his lead to two runs.

Kluber owns a 3.52 ERA and 96:13 K:BB ratio in 76 2/3 innings. He's slated to face the Royals in Kansas City on Wednesday.


Indians pitcher Corey Kluber strikes out seven in eight innings


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber allowed one run on nine hits in eight innings of work on Saturday in Cleveland's 2-1 win over the Reds on Saturday.

Kluber's lone blemish came in the second inning when after allowing two consecutive hits to lead off the inning, Zack Cozart knocked a sacrifice fly into right field to plate Cincinnati's only run. Kluber settled in after that and struck out seven with no walks in the contest.

"Early on I was throwing a lot of strikes, but didn't have the best command," Kluber said to MLB.com. "I missed a few balls over the plate and they did a good job of taking advantage of it."

Kluber, now 2-5, has been on a roll in his last three starts. He has allowed just two runs in 25 innings with 37 strikeouts and just one walk. He will look to keep things rolling Thursday against the Mariners.


Indians SP Corey Kluber looks to continue dominant surge


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/23/2015) Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber has pitched two consecutive gems, and will look to make it a third against the Reds on Saturday.

Kluber has allowed just one earned run in his last 17 innings. In that stretch, he's produced a .053 ERA with a whopping 30 strikeouts.


Indians starter Corey Kluber fans 12 in nine IP in no-decision


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/18/2015) Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber followed up his 18-strikeout performance in his last start with a 12-K, nine-inning gem on Monday for a no-decision against the White Sox.

"They're a really aggressive lineup," Kluber said, per MLB.com. "And the key is to get ahead and take advantage of it."

Kluber allowed one run in the outing, scored via a wild pitch.

Kluber, the reigning AL Cy Young Award winner, struck out the first five batters he faced and seven of nine, retiring his first 10 overall until Melky Cabrera singled with one out in the fourth.

The performance was Kluber's third game with double-digit strikeouts.

The right hander now as 74 K's in 61 2/3 innings this season, tops in MLB after Monday's action.

"He was so special," Cleveland manager Terry Francona said of Kluber. "He followed up that performance just with… he may have had a better breaking ball [Monday]."

Kluber's next start is set for Saturday against the Reds.


Are Indians' Kluber's early struggles related to absence of Gomes?


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2015) Some close to Indians ace Corey Kluber believe his early-season struggles were related to missing Yan Gomes, who is on the shelf with a with a sprained MCL, CBSSports.com Jon Heyman reports.

However, Kluber didn't seem to have any issues on Wednesday when he put together one of the best pitching performances of the season, striking out 18 -- the most in a game since Ben Sheets in 2004 and the most by an American League pitcher since Roger Clemens in 1998. 

Kluber is 1-5 with a 4.27 ERA over 52 2/3 innings pitched.


Corey Kluber's 18 strikeouts Wednesday most since 2004


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2015) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber worked a nearly perfect start on Wednesday against the Cardinals in Cleveland's 2-0 win. Kluber pitched eight scoreless innings, allowing just one hit with 18 strikeouts. 

It was the most strikeouts in a game since Ben Sheets in 2004 and the most by an American League pitcher since Roger Clemens in 1998. Kluber needed just 113 pitches, 74 going for strikes, in his eight innings of work.

"He started to find it and feel it," manager Terry Francona said, per MLB.com. "The pitches were thrown with conviction and confidence and attacking with all his pitches. When you have the talent he does, that's what can come of it."

Kluber, now 1-5, lowered his ERA to 4.27 in 52 2/3 innings of work. He will look to keep rolling Monday against the White Sox.


Indians RHP Corey Kluber still missing C Yan Gomes


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2015) Indians supposed ace and reigning American League Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber is still missing injured catcher Yan Gomes. And the numbers back it up, per Fox Sports.

Since the start of 2014, he is 18-9 with a 2.39 ERA when Gomes catches and 0-5 with a 5.13 ERA with anyone else behind the dish. Kluber sported a 2.63 ERA this year when Gomes was lost. He is 0-4 with a 6.10 ERA pitching to Roberto Perez.

Gomes, who is rehabbing ahead of schedule, is expected back in about four weeks.


Indians P Corey Kluber's dismal start to season continues


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2015) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber once again had a tough day on the mound in Thursday's 7-4 loss to the Royals. 

Kluber went 5 2/3 innings and allowed five earned runs. Four of those runs came early in the first inning. Kluber did strike out seven batters, though he gave up seven hits and two walks. He now holds a 5.04 ERA for the season. 

Kluber has yet to win a game and is 0-5 this season. 

Kluber's next start is projected for May 13 against the Cardinals. 


Indians' Corey Kluber, Roberto Perez still learning to work together


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Indians starter Corey Kluber hasn't looked like the pitcher that won last season's Cy Young Award. Part of the reason may be the other half of the battery.

Catcher Yan Gomes has been on the disabled list with a knee injury, and Kluber is still adjusting to work with Roberto Perez

"There's obviously a difference," Kluber said, per MLB.com. "Whether it be myself with Yan, or somebody that gets traded, for example, there's always a period where you've got to work to know what each other wants to do. I think that's normal for any player to go through. It's not just Roberto and myself."

"There's no secret how comfortable Klubes and Gomer were," manager Terry Francona said. "That was a pretty special relationship that you want. ... When a guy like Gomes goes down, you don't have a Gomes sitting on the bench. I think we're pretty fortunate where we are, but they're not going to have that same sync. It's impossible." 


The Corey Kluber of 2014 still missing Saturday for Indians


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) Forget about Waldo. Where's Corey Kluber?

The Kluber that won the American League Cy Young Award for the Indians last season is missing. He has been replaced by a guy who continued to struggle Saturday against Toronto and fell to 0-4 on the year.

Kluber performed decently early in the year and could have sued his hitters for non-support. But his most recent performance in which he gave up four runs on eight hits in five innings continued a string of uncharacteristically bad outings.

"I think the biggest thing is probably just needing to sequence a little better," Kluber said. "I'm not doing that good of a job of keeping guys honest. For the most part, guys are kind of hanging out over the plate and when they're doing that, you kind of eliminate one half of the plate, so when you do make a mistake it's kind of magnified.

The right-hander gave up a run-scoring double to Edwin Encarnacion in the first, then collapsed in the middle innings. He allowed a game-tying home run to Russell Martin in the fourth, two-run single to Jose Bautista in the fifth and two baserunners in the sixth before his merciful removal.

Kluber, whose ERA has skyrocketed from 2.49 to 4.62 over the last three starts, has surrendered 31 hits in his last 17 1/3 innings pitched. He will attempt to find himself Friday against Minnesota.


Indians starter Corey Kluber falls to 0-3 with loss on Monday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/27/2015) Indians starter Corey Kluber (0-3) gave up six runs (four earned) on 10 hits in 6 1/3 innings on Monday to take the loss against the Royals.

Kluber struck out five in the contest and notched his 500th for his career. Kluber reached the milestone in his 80th game with the Indians, the second fastest to do so in franchise history (Herb Score, 68 games).

"He's one of the best pitchers in the game, if not the best pitcher in the game," Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas, who went 4 for 5 in the game, said. "We came away with a win against a great pitcher."

Kluber, the 2014 American League Cy Young Award winner, will look for his first win of the season Saturday against the Blue Jays.


Indians ace Corey Kluber collapses late in Windy City defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Reigning American League Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber had pitched well in three previous starts this season, but the meager Indians offense prevented him from winning.

Well, the team was blanked again Wednesday with its ace on the mound, this time against the host White Sox. The difference was that Kluber was battered, especially in the middle innings before being removed.

"For me, I can only focus on going out there and trying to prevent the other team from scoring," Kluber said to MLB.com. "Once you start letting other stuff get to you or creep in your mind, it takes away from what you're trying to do. My job is not to worry about things other than me trying to prevent them from scoring. I didn't do that well enough today."

Kluber was hanging tough through five, yielding only a solo home run to Jose Abreu and run-scoring double play grounder. But he allowed six hits and two wild pitches thereafter while retiring just three batters. He finished having surrendered six runs on a career-high 13 hits with one walk and six strikeouts.

He will try again for his first victory of the season Monday against Kansas City.

Twins' Vargas, Plouffe have good track record vs. Indians' Kluber


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) When the Twins and Indians open a three-game series Friday, Cleveland will be sending ace Corey Kluber to the mound. Twins DH Kennys Vargas and third baseman Trevor Plouffe have fairly good history against the 2014 AL Cy Young award winner.

Vargas went 4 for 11 (.364) with one double, one home run and two RBI against Kluber last season, while Plouffe is batting .360 (9 for 25) with one double, two home runs and seven RBI in his career against Kluber.

Kluber is 4-2 with a 4.01 ERA in 10 career starts against the Twins. He went 2-1 with a 2.70 ERA in three starts against the AL Central foe last season and is 2-1 with a 4.66 ERA in five starts at Target Field.

Indians P Corey Kluber strikes out seven in loss to Astros


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Indians pitcher Corey Kluber struck out seven in the team's 2-0 loss against the Astros on Opening Day.

"I started off well," Kluber said, per MLB.com. "I felt like maybe a little bit, as it got later in the game, I lost my fastball command just a little bit and didn't quite locate some two-strike pitches like I would've wanted to. But, in general, overall, I felt pretty good."

Kluber, 28, gave up three hits in 7 1/3 innings pitched with two walks on 102 pitches.
