Kluber (6-2) allowed two unearned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out 13 across seven innings, but received no decision Saturday against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Kluber was the victim of limited run support, which likely kept him from earning his seventh win of the season. He's allowed just five earned runs over his last five starts to lower a 5.06 ERA to 3.24, and he's now looking like the fantasy ace he was drafted to be. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Rangers.

Kluber (6-2) struck out 11 while allowing three hits and no walks in a complete game shutout Monday against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Kluber was outstanding in this one, throwing first-pitch strikes to 21 of the 30 hitters he faced while notching a season high in punchouts. He was in the strike zone at 74 percent clip and induced 12 groundball outs while not allowing a single runner past first base. The right-hander endured his share of struggles prior to a month-long injury absence, but he has posted a sharp 1.61 ERA and a stellar 39:4 K:BB to go along with a 3-0 record in four starts since returning to the rotation. Kluber is in tremendous form at the present time and will look to keep it rolling Saturday against the Twins.

Kluber struck out 10 over seven strong innings against the Dodgers on Wednesday, allowing just two runs on four hits and a walk. He didn't factor into the decision in the eventual 6-4 loss.

EDGE Analysis

Kluber has now put up three 10-strikeout games in his last five starts, albeit with a month-long DL stint in the middle there. His ERA is still an inflated 4.15, but the smart money's on Kluber bringing that number down to a more respectable level.

Kluber (5-2) allowed three runs on seven hits over six innings Friday against the White Sox, striking out eight and walking two.

EDGE Analysis

In his second start since a nearly month-long disabled list stint (back) that cost him almost all of May, Kluber didn't quite match the six shutout innings he fired June 1, but still had himself a nice night. While this start came on an abnormal seven days rest, he now has a 18:3 K:BB since his return.

Kluber (4-2) pitched six scoreless innings with 10 strikeouts during Thursday's win over Oakland. He allowed just two hits and a walk.

EDGE Analysis

Considering Kluber last toed the rubber May 2, this was an impressive outing and silences any injury concerns. The outing dropped him to a 4.36 ERA and 1.25 WHIP, and the righty sports an elite 10.6 K.9. Unfortunately, he lines up for a difficult upcoming start against the Rockies at Coors Field, so it could be difficult to followup Thursday's solid showing.

Kluber (back) was activated from the 10-day DL in advance of his scheduled start Thursday against the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Terry Francona confirmed to media Monday that Kluber will take the hill for this start, which becomes official with Thursday's roster move. The right-hander was lights out in his rehab start Friday for Double-A Akron, throwing five shutout innings of one-hit ball to prove he's ready to return. Kluber, who posted a 5.06 ERA across six starts before landing on the DL, will square off against Jharel Cotton and the As in a home matchup.

Manager Terry Francona relayed that Kluber (back) would start Thursday's game against the Athletics, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kluber looked sharp in his rehab outing Friday for Double-A Akron, tossing five scoreless innings while giving up one hit and issuing no walks. The outing evidently convinced the organization that Kluber would be ready to make his next turn in the big leagues, so he'll be called upon to rejoin the rotation for the final game of the Tribe's homestand. The struggling Danny Salazar will temporarily move to the bullpen this week with Kluber returning, but over the long haul, either Mike Clevinger or Josh Tomlin would seem most at risk of losing his respective starting role.

Kluber (back) is expected to start Thursday against the A's,Zack Meisel of Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kluber's recent dominant rehab start showed the Indians that he's ready to return to the big league club. He's been on the shelf since early-May due to some back stiffness, but he's progressed well in his rehab and is lined up to start Thursday. Prior to landing on the DL, Kluber had been a bit shaky with a 5.06 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP in six starts.

Kluber (back) allowed just one hit over five shutout innings in a rehab start Friday for Double-A Akron, Brad Bournival of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kluber retired the final 13 batters he faced and needed just 47 pitches to complete five frames. He was so efficient that he needed to head to the bullpen to throw more pitches to ensure he is stretched out by the time he reports to the major league club. Kluber could return as soon as May 31 against Oakland.

Kluber (back) had his scheduled rehab start for Triple-A Columbus rained out Thursday, and he'll instead pitch Friday for Double-A Akron, Zack Meisel of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cleveland wanted Kluber to throw around 75 pitches in what's expected to be his final rehab appearance, but the club feared he'd have to settle for an abbreviated outing and fall short of the required workload. As long as his practice outing goes well, the right-hander could return as early as a May 31 home clash with the Athletics.
