Kluber (9-8) gave up three runs on six hits and a walk over seven innings Sunday while striking out eight but came away with a no-decision in a 5-3 loss to the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

He was in line for the loss before Cleveland scored a run in eighth inning to tie it, only for Cody Allen to serve up a walkoff homer in the bottom of the ninth. Kluber showed no ill effects from his calf cramping that ended his last start, throwing 67 of 101 pitches for strikes and generating an impressive 20 swinging strikes. He should be safe to use next Sunday when the Indians host the A's.

Kluber (calf) is listed in the lineup as the Indians' starting pitcher Sunday against the Orioles, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kluber exited his previous start on July 18 with cramping in his right calf, but he was never in serious peril of missing his next turn in the rotation because of it. He should face no pitch limits in Sunday's outing, though he'll make for a risky DFS pick due to the matchup with the majors' fifth-best offense, in terms of wRC+.

Kluber pitched seven innings before leaving Monday's game against the Royals with a right calf cramp, https://twitter.com/MLBastian/status/755233280421687297">Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kluber was pitching solidly before sustaining the injury, giving up five hits and three walks, with eight strikeouts. His injury is not considered serious, so he'll likely be ready for his next start.

Kluber (9-8) struck out eight while giving up just one earned run on five hits over eight innings in Friday's 10-2 victory over the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

The former Cy Young winner was masterful while frustrating the Yankees over his eight innings, firing 68 of his 96 pitches for strikes. Kluber had been blasted for five earned runs in just over three innings in his last start against the Blue Jays, so Friday's outing was a welcome return to form. It was Kluber's third quality start in the last four trips to the mound, and he's now secured victories in five of his last seven starts.

Kluber (8-8) lasted just 3.1 innings in Sunday's loss to the Jays, coughing up five runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out four.

EDGE Analysis

It was his shortest outing since May 9 in Houston, when Kluber gave up five runs in 2.2 innings. After going 4-1 in June with a 2.19 ERA and 37:7 K:BB in 37 innings, the right-hander just couldn't put the ball where he wanted it in his first July start. He'll look to shake it off Friday at home against the Yankees.

Kluber (8-7) limited the Braves to two runs on three hits over eight innings in Tuesday's win. He walked one and struck out seven.

EDGE Analysis

For the first time this season, Kluber went eight-plus innings in back-to-back starts. In five June starts, he finished 4-1 with a 2.19 ERA and 37:7 K:BB. Kluber lowed his WHIP to an AL-best 0.98 while moving into second for strikeouts (110) and innings pitched (110.2) among AL starters. The former Cy Young winner is back to his winning ways after a slow start to the 2016 campaign, and the ceiling is high considering the Indians have surprisingly become the hottest team in baseball, having outscored opponents 73-25 during their 11-game winning streak.

Kluber will have his next start pushed back to Tuesday against the Braves, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kluber was originally scheduled to pitch the series opener Monday, but the Indians are building in an extra day of rest for him after he covered all nine innings in a shutout of the Rays last Tuesday, during which he threw 115 pitches. The decision shouldn't really change Kluber's fantasy outlook, as he'll still be in line for a two-start week, though the latter of those two turns comes against a surging Jays lineup.

Kluber (7-7) allowed just three hits and two walks and struck out nine in a complete game shutout victory Tuesday against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

There's the Cy Young-level performance people have come to expect from Kluber. This marks his second shutout of the season and his second complete game in his past three starts. Kluber's propensity for blowups this season makes him more unreliable than the game's true greats -- he has allowed five runs or more four times in 15 starts this year -- but Tuesday's effort proves he's still capable of the magic of his past two seasons, when he had a 2.95 ERA in 457.2 combined innings.

Kluber (6-7) was tagged for eight runs on nine hits over five innings Wednesday in a loss against the Royals. He struck out seven and walked just one.

EDGE Analysis

That K:BB offers some bright side, but Kluber continues to be less than the sum of his peripherals. The 30-year-old is a long way from his Cy Young form of two years ago, as his once-spectacular strikeout rate's fallen in consecutive seasons while he's struggled to strand baserunners. The bright side is that some strand-rate correction should bring his ERA down into acceptable territory, but it's clear that despite his still-strong whiff rate and flashes of brilliance, Kluber can't be considered an upper-crust fantasy starter right now.

Kluber allowed two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out eight in a complete game victory over the Angels on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Kluber evened his record at 6-6 and has now struck out eight or more batters in six straight starts and appears to be rounding into form after some uneven starts to start the season.
