Kluber (groin) will have an MRI Tuesday, but the Indians don't expect him to miss much time, if any, MLB Network Radio reports.

EDGE Analysis

He left Monday's start early with what has been labeled a minor groin issue, but more information should be available later Tuesday or Wednesday morning. The Indians don't seem to think the injury is serious, but there is little reason for them to rush him back this weekend, as they have already clinched the division.

Kluber was removed after four innings with groin tightness Monday against the Tigers, having allowed two runs on five hits, a walk, and three strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Terry Francona seemed to indicate that the groin was a minor issue and that the early exit was precautionary, saying of Kluber, "He's good, but he has a groin thing that he's fighting." The Indians went on to defeat the Tigers 7-4, and they clinched the AL Central in the process. The combination of the injury and the fact that the Indians will have little to play for in the final games of the regular season would seem to make it unlikely that Kluber would make another regular season start, although the Indians have not yet said anything about whether or not he will miss a start.

Kluber exited Monday's game after just four innings and 60 pitches, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear whether Kluber was pulled for injury reasons, and we'll have to wait for an announcement from the clubhouse to know more. He wasn't at his sharpest, as he gave up two runs on five hits and a walk over four innings, but he was hardly poor enough to deserve such an early hook, so it's difficult to be optimistic at this point.

Kluber (18-9) tossed 6.1 innings, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out nine Royals in Wednesday's win.

EDGE Analysis

Wednesday marked the 14th straight start in which Kluber pitched at least six innings, a ridiculous stretch in which he's gone 10-1 and thrust himself into the Cy Young conversation. The 30-year-old ranks in the AL's top five for wins, innings pitched, strikeouts, ERA and WHIP. Kluber will continue his campaign when he travels to Detroit for his next start Monday.

Kluber (17-9) gave up four earned runs on five hits and three walks over seven innings in Friday's 11-4 victory over the Tigers. He struck out seven.

EDGE Analysis

The former Cy Young winner turned in one of his typical workhorse performances, firing 101 pitches over his seven frames and notching 15 swinging strikes overall. Justin Upton was the source of all of Kluber's problems on the night, as he touched him up for a 436-foot solo shot in the second and a three-run blast in the sixth that plated Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez, closing the Indians' lead to 6-4 at that point. Kluber now has gone at least six innings in 13 straight starts, bringing his ERA down from 3.61 to 3.12 over that span. He's notched victories in nine of 10 decisions during that stretch as well, and will look to make it 10 of 11 when he takes on the Royals next Thursday.

Kluber (15-9) allowed four runs on four hits over seven innings in a losing effort against the Astros Tuesday. He struck out nine and walked three.

EDGE Analysis

Aside from Kluber's second inning, in which he issued two walks followed by a three-run homer to first baseman Marwin Gonzalez, this was a respectable showing largely in line with his strong August. He struck out nine and retired the final 10 batters he faced before exiting the game in the seventh. It marked the first time the Cleveland ace has allowed more than four runs in a start since July 3. His next start comes against Minnesota on September 11.

Kluber will make his next start Tuesday against the Astros, Zack Meisel of Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pitching Tuesday means Kluber will get an extra day of rest between starts, but that also will line him up to pitch during a key series with the Tigers later this month. The Indians have not announced a starter for Monday's game, but are tentatively planning to use several relievers to get through that day's contest.

Kluber (15-8) struck out 11 while allowing three runs on six hits and a pair of walks in Wednesday's win over the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Incredibly, despite now being third in the American league in strikeouts with 189, Kluber has only recorded double-digit whiffs twice this year, with the last time having come way back on April 23. The 30-year-old righty's now pitched at least six innings in 10 consecutive starts -- over those 69.1 innings, he owns a 1.94 ERA and 75:19 K:BB. He already won a Cy Young in 2014, and it's looking like he's going to be right in the thick of it for a repeat.

Kluber (13-8) pitched 6.2 innings, allowing two runs on six hits and four walks while striking out eight in Sunday's no-decision versus the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Kluber's streak of four straight wins ended Sunday when he was outdueled by Jays' starter Marcus Stroman. The Indians' ace was actually in line for the loss when he left, but a comeback victory saved Kluber from losing for the first time since June 2. The former Cy Young winner has been fantastic since the All-Star break, going 4-0 with a 1.89 ERA and 49 strikeouts over 47.2 innings.

Kluber (13-8) pitched six innings Tuesday, while allowing one run on seven hits and two walks, striking out seven to earn the win over the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Kluber's lone blemish was a solo home run by veteran DH Justin Morneau in the sixth, but he was superb the rest of the night. Kluber now has 163 strikeouts, fourth best in the AL, to go along with just 38 walks. The former Cy Young winner has been on fire of late, and has now won four consecutive starts, to go along with a 1.65 ERA over his previous seven. He'll look to keep things going against the Blue Jays on Sunday.
