      Indians' Corey Kluber: Takes down White Sox on Wednesday

      Kluber (4-5) picked up the win Wednesday afternoon against the White Sox. He tossed 7.1 innings, allowing two runs (one earned), seven hits and a walk while striking out nine. The 2014 AL Cy Young winner has struggled at times this season, but he was near top form Wednesday while picking up his third win of the month. Kluber trimmed his ERA to 3.78, the second-lowest number it has been all season, while slicing his WHIP slightly to 1.11. He'll face a tough task when he takes on the Rangers in his next start Tuesday.

      Indians' Corey Kluber: Quiets dangerous Red Sox bats in Friday victory

      Kluber (3-5) surrendered five hits, two earned runs and two walks in Friday's 4-2 victory over the Red Sox. He struck out six. The 30-year-old's rollercoaster season was on an upswing again Friday, as he extracted a measure of revenge against the club that touched him up for nine hits and four earned runs in his first start of the season. Kluber was able to largely neutralize one of the most dangerous offenses in baseball by throwing 66 of 105 pitches for strikes, and inducing 12 swinging strikes in the process. The former Cy Young winner has sandwiched a complete-game shutout of the Tigers and Friday's quality start around a pair of outings against the Astros and Twins where he gave up a combined 12 hits, nine earned runs and six walks over 9.1 innings. He'll try to put a second consecutive productive effort together when he faces the White Sox in Chicago next Wednesday.

      Indians' Corey Kluber: Takes loss despite solid start Saturday

      Kluber (2-5) surrendered seven hits, four earned runs and three walks over 6.2 innings in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Twins. He struck out seven. Kluber had some trouble with his control, throwing only 66 of his 110 pitches for strikes. He also issued multiple walks for the third straight start, and has now surrendered nine earned runs over the last nine innings across the two starts, following a complete-game gem against the Tigers on May 4. The recent struggles have the 30-year-old's ERA back up to 4.30, while his record continues to drift further away from the .500 mark.

      Indians' Corey Kluber: Roughed up by Astros

      Kluber (2-4) allowed five runs on five hits and three walks over 2.2 innings with three strikeouts in a loss Monday against the Astros. Kluber had allowed just three earned runs in his past three starts, a span covering 24 innings, before this disaster. While Kluber is still capable of gems, he has been far more vulnerable over the past season and change than he was in his Cy Young campaign of 2014. After allowing five earned runs or more just twice in 34 starts in his Cy season, he has been lit up for at least five runs seven times in 39 starts since. Two of those have come in 2016, and his ERA is now up to 4.14.

      Kluber (2-3) looked like his old self Wednesday against the Tigers, tossing a complete-game shutout, allowing five hits and two walks while striking out seven. Kluber turned in a vintage performance Wednesday, creating a wave of groundball outs and sidestepping a handful of jams en route to a 4-0 victory. The righty generated 16 outs via grounders, including a pair of double plays while beating the Tigers for the second time this season. Aside from two bad outings in his first three, Kluber has been his normal self and holds a beautiful 42:7 K:BB through his first six starts (34 innings).

      Indians' Corey Kluber: Quality start nets no-decision

      Kluber allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits, he did not walk a hitter and struck out six over seven innings, netting a no-decision against the Phillies on Friday night. After a rugged start to the season, Kluber turned in a second straight quality start, but came away with a no-decision as the Indians fell to Philadelphia 4-3 in 11 innings. He was efficient, needing just 90 pitches (61 for strikes) to cover seven innings, but he left with the game tied. He'll take an improving 4.24 ERA into his next start against Detroit.

      Indians' Corey Kluber: Hurls eight dominant frames in Saturday victory

      Kluber (1-3) notched 10 strikeouts while pitching eight innings of two-hit ball, surrendering only an earned run in a 10-1 victory over the Tigers. The former Cy Young winner finally looked like himself in 2016, and notched his first victory of the season the hard way-- against a potent Tigers lineup in their home park. He did not issue a free pass for the first time all season, displaying excellent control and also inducing 12 swings-and-misses along the way. Although he enjoyed excellent run support he obviously didn't require it, and put together a highly encouraging bounceback effort after being knocked around for six earned runs over six innings versus the Mets on Apr. 17. Kluber will try to keep the momentum going in his next start against the Phillies on Friday night.

      Indians' Corey Kluber: Roughed up in Sunday's loss

      Kluber (0-3) dropped his third straight decision to begin the season Sunday, giving up six runs on nine hits and a walk over six innings while striking out eight as the Indians fell 6-0 to the Mets. He was the victim of some bad defense and unfavorable decisions by the official scorer, as Rajai Davis lost two fly balls in the sun which were ruled hits and not errors, contributing to a three-run second inning. Kluber's 19:5 K:BB through 19 innings on the season is excellent, though, and arguably more reflective of his performance than his unsightly 6.16 ERA. He'll try to turn things around in his next start Saturday, on the road in Detroit.

      Indians' Corey Kluber: Takes loss Tuesday against Rays

      Kluber (0-2) took the loss Tuesday night against the Rays as he allowed three runs on four hits and two walks over 7.2 innings. He struck out six. Kluber was dominant early, as he opened with six shutout innings. But Logan Forsyth got to him for a two-run home run in the eighth inning, and that was the end of Kluber's night and any chance at a win. He was extremely nasty early on, as he induced 20 swinging strikes and 11 ground ball outs from the Rays. Kluber gave up 22 home runs last year and has give up one each in his two starts this year.
