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.

Kluber's next start is scheduled for Wednesday in Chicago against the White Sox.

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.

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

"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.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

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.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

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.

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."
