Kluber will start Game 2 of the ALDS against either the Twins or Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

The Indians will give the ball to Trevor Bauer for Game 1, lining Kluber up to pitch Game 2 and a potential Game 5 on regular rest. The ace posted a ridiculous 1.79 ERA and 142:12 K:BB in 15 starts (110.1 innings) since the All-Star break, and will look to carry his dominance into the playoffs.

Kluber allowed one run on six hits while striking out three over five innings in a no-decision against the White Sox on Saturday. He did not issue a walk.

EDGE Analysis

The team capped Kluber at 81 pitches in his final regular-season tuneup before the start of the ALDS. Kluber was absolutely brilliant throughout the campaign -- he's neck and neck with Boston's Chris Sale for the AL Cy Young despite missing a month early in the season with a back injury. He may be a late-first/early-second rounder in drafts next spring.

Kluber (18-4) allowed two runs (none earned) on six hits and a pair of walks to pick up the win against the Mariners on Sunday. He struck out 10.

EDGE Analysis

There were plenty of baserunners during the Klubot's outing, but he managed to limit the damage to just a two-run home run by Ben Gamel in the fifth inning. With another 10 K's on the ledger, the Cy Young Award winner now has an absurd 47:3 K:BB in 38 innings pitched during the month of September to go along with a 5-0 record and a 0.71 ERA. Kluber will look to finish the regular season on a high note when he makes his final start before the playoffs against the White Sox next weekend.

Kluber (17-4) picked up the win Sunday after allowing just three hits and no walks while striking out nine Royals over seven innings.

EDGE Analysis

Kluber, who's lost only once since July 4, allowed just three singles Sunday, and extended his scoreless streak to 22 straight innings. The Cy Young candidate lowered his ERA to 2.35 while locking in 76 of his 99 pitches for strikes, 22 of which were swings and misses. Kluber will look to match last season's 18 wins -- a career high he's managed to notch twice since 2014 -- when he takes the hill Saturday in Seattle.

Kluber (16-4) tossed a complete-game shutout Tuesday, allowing five hits and no walks while striking out eight Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

The Indians' ace pushed the team's winning streak to 20 games while facing just three batters over the minimum Tuesday. Over his last nine starts, Kluber is 8-1 with 74 strikeouts -- the most punch outs for any MLB pitcher since Aug. 1 -- and has arguably taken control of the AL Cy Young race. He'll carry a sparkling 2.44 ERA into Sunday's contest as home against the Royals.

Kluber (15-4) beat the White Sox on Thursday after allowing two runs on three hits with one walk and 13 strikeouts in seven innings.

EDGE Analysis

Kluber was staked to a 4-0 lead in top of the first inning, which was more than enough for the ace to cruise to another victory and improve to 8-1 in his past 10 starts despite allowing a pair of homers in the bottom of the frame. This result also extended Cleveland's winning streak to a franchise-best 15 consecutive games. His team's climb to within 2.5 games of Houston for the best record in the AL has strengthened Kluber's case for a second Cy Young award, with his 2.56 ERA and 12.0 K/9 reminiscent of the 2.44 and 10.3 marks he posted when he captured that honor in 2014. The 31-year-old righty will look to add to his resume in Tuesday's home matchup with a depleted Tigers offense.

Kluber (14-4) shined Saturday against the Tigers, allowing just one run on eight hits while striking out seven in eight innings of work en route to the victory.

EDGE Analysis

This marked the second consecutive outing in which the Klubot went eight innings and the seventh start in a row with three or fewer runs allowed. The only blemish on the evening was an RBI single in the seventh inning, but everything else about his evening was fairly low stress. Kluber's ERA now sits at a stellar 2.56 mark, a figure he'll look to improve further in his next start Thursday against the White Sox.

Kluber (13-4) allowed two runs on three hits and a walk and struck out seven over eight innings to pick up the win Monday against the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Kluber still hasn't lost in consecutive starts all season long, as he was able to follow up a tough luck loss last time out against Boston with another dominant outing against another AL East opponent. Kluber is now 5-1 over his last six starts and hasn't given up more than three runs in any of the six. His ERA is down to a pristine 2.63, buoyed by an absurd 215 strikeouts over 160.2 innings.

Kluber (12-4) suffered defeat at the hands of the Red Sox on Wednesday, allowing two runs on four hits and a walk over 7.2 innings while striking out 12.

EDGE Analysis

He was locked in a scoreless pitcher's duel with Drew Pomeranz until the fifth inning, when Mitch Moreland smacked a solo homer and gave Boston a lead they wouldn't surrender. Kluber has now struck out double-digit batters in 13 of 22 outings this season while delivering quality starts in an incredible 17 of them, but he'll face another tough task Monday on the road against the Yankees.

Manager Terry Francona said Kluber (ankle) will be on "no restrictions" for his start Wednesday against Boston, the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a successful bullpen session Sunday, the Tribe's ace is a full-go for his showdown against the powerful Red Sox lineup. That's good news considering Kluber leads the AL with 14 complete games and five shutouts over the past four seasons. The last time he faced off against the Sox was in last year's ALDS, when Kluber allowed just three hits over seven shutout innings.
