Corey Kluber SP CLE 2 days ago

Kluber has his third straight strong start on Saturday, giving up just one run on nine hits over eight innings while striking out seven to pick up his second win of the season.

He's now got a mind-boggling 37:1 K:BB ratio over those three starts (25 innings), and in the process has lowered his ERA on the season to 3.49. Kluber's next start, on the road in Seattle's spacious Safeco Field on Thursday, will give him a very good chance to make it four straight dominant outings.

Kluber hurled nine innings Monday against the White Sox, striking out 12 batters and only allowing one run to pick up a no-decision.

Kluber is clearly back to his normal self after a rough start to the season. In his previous start, he struck out 18 batters. Despite going nine innings, he couldn't earn the complete game, as the matchup went into extra innings. Still, owners should be completely confident using Kluber. His next start is Saturday against the Reds.

Kluber (1-5) dramatically turned around his season Wednesday, striking out 18 batters over eight innings of one-hit shutout ball against the Cardinals.

Kluber came into the game looking for his first win of the year, and he got that and more. Fantasy owners who managed to buy him after a slow start have to be ecstatic over this outing by the reigning AL Cy Young winner. He'll try to put on a fitting encore Monday against the White Sox.

Kluber (0-5) took another loss Thursday, giving up five runs on seven hits in 5.2 innings against the Royals. He struck out seven, walked two and hit a batter.

Things have just not been going right for Kluber over his last four starts, as he's been torched for 38 hits and 22 runs (19 earned) over just 23 innings. However, his peripherals remain strong, so it's a good time to offer up a trade to a panicky owner of last year's AL Cy Young winner.

Kluber saw his record drop to 0-4 on Saturday, as he coughed up five runs (four earned) on eight hits and two walks over five innings, striking out three.

He now has a very un-Cy Young-like 4.62 ERA, but Kluber's 39:9 K:BB ratio in 39 innings is still excellent, and his numbers should come down once his balls in play start finding gloves. He'll look for his first win of the season next week in Kansas City.

Kluber gave up two earned runs on three hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over 7.1 innings Monday against the Astros.

He took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before the Astros were able to manufacture a run, that would prove to be all they needed as the Indians were held scoreless on Opening Day. Kluber looked like his typical dominant self for much of the game, and certainly pitched well enough to win. The defending Cy Young award winner will go for his first win of 2015 on Sunday against the Tigers.
