Corey Kluber SP CLE 18 hours ago

Kluber struck out 14 over eight innings Thursday in Tampa, but also gave up four runs (three earned) on seven hits and a walk.

He didn't receive a decision for his trouble, as this game ended up taking 10 innings to decide. Nonetheless, he continues to pile up the double-digit-strikeout games, as Thursday's was his second in a row and fifth in his last 10 starts. Kluber just needs to avoid the one or two bad innings that seem to dog him every start. He holds a solid 1.16 WHIP over his last seven starts, but a non-matching 3.86 ERA, as Kluber continues to be haunted by a low strand rate and high BABIP.

Kluber notched a quality start, allowing three runs on seven hits, walking one and striking out 10 over seven innings, but came away with a no-decision in a game Baltimore would win 4-3 Friday night.

Kluber (3-9, 3.66 ERA) pitched well enough to deserve a win, but as has happened so often this year, the run support just wasn't there. Coming into this game, his mates were averaging barely two runs per game in his starts, so that balky record should improve if things start going his way.

Kluber lasted seven innings, but took the loss Saturday against the Rays with four runs allowed and six strikeouts.

Saturday's loss pushes Kluber down 3-9 in 2015 and four straight since the beginning of June. While Kluber and his disappointing 3.65 ERA are a part of that, it definitely doesn't help that he ranks 106th out of 107 in MLB run support with 2.20 runs per start. It's highly probable that stat regresses to the mean with time.

Kluber allowed four runs on nine hits and a walk to go with nine strikeouts in eight innings Wednesday against the Royals.

With Wednesday's loss, Kluber dropped to 0-3 against the Royals this season. The reigning Cy Young winner struck out nine, giving him 105 strikeouts for the season and making him the quickest Indians pitcher to eclipse 100 since Sam McDowell in 1970. Kluber's next outing will be Tuesday against Seattle.

Kluber struck out 13 in seven innings Thursday, giving up three runs on seven hits and a walk against the Mariners.

Kluber (3-5) gave up a pair of home runs to Mike Zunino in the third and Dustin Ackley in the sixth, but other than that, Kluber was dominant. Eight of the final nine outs recorded by Kluber came via strikeout, including getting Nelson Cruz swinging for the final out of the seventh with a runner on. The reigning AL Cy Young award winner improved to 3-0 with 50 strikeouts and two walks in his last four starts. Kluber's next start will be against the reeling Royals on Wednesday.

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.
