Indians SP Corey Kluber snaps losing skid with eight shutout innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cleveland Indians starter Corey Kluber (9-16) blanked the Boston Red Sox over eight innings Saturday in 2-0 victory, surrendering only three hits and two walks. He struck out nine.

After a five-start losing streak during which he was done in by a combination of questionable pitching and inconsistent run support, the stars finally aligned for Kluber on Saturday. The outing marked his second eight-inning shutout of 2015, and the third time overall that he blanked the opposing squad during his time on the mound.

Although his ERA did rise over last year's number by a full point--going from 2.44 to 3.49--it was actually lower than the 3.85 figure he'd posted while amassing a solid 11-5 record in 2013. Kluber's other key metrics did not suffer any drastic drops this season either, and his BB/9 rate actually improved from 2014's 1.95 to 1.82. Nevertheless, the 29-year-old practically reversed his 2014 American League All-Stars Cy Young-winning 18-9 record during a disappointing campaign, but certainly has the talent to rebound strongly next season.

Corey Kluber, Indians fall to Twins on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Indians starter Corey Kluber fell to 8-16 with a loss Monday against the Twins, as he allowed four runs on seven hits and three walks over six innings. He struck out six.

Kluber has now received two or fewer runs of support in 17 of his 31 starts, and that's the real explanation behind his brutal record this year. Still, Kluber's ERA is up to 3.62, over a full run higher than his 2014 mark, and the home run he gave up to Trevor Plouffe was the 22nd he has allowed this year. If Kluber is going to contend for another Cy Young award, he'll have to find a way to keep the ball in the yard.

Indians SP Corey Kluber suffers poor outing against Twins
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber (8-15) lasted only 3 2/3 innings Wednesday, giving up four earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six in a 4-2 loss to the Twins.

The Indians ace was pummeled in a nightmarish fourth inning, giving up a solo homer to Brian Dozier only to be yanked after giving up RBI hits to Trevor Plouffe and Eduardo Escobar. Kluber hasn't been particularly sharp since returning from the disabled list, failing to exceed four innings in each of his two starts. The reigning Cy Young Award winner will next take the mound Monday against the Twins.

Indians SP Corey Kluber takes loss in return from injury
by CBSSports.com Staff | CBSSports.com

Indians starter Corey Kluber (8-14) allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits across four innings in a losing effort on Thursday against the Royals. He struck out five in the game.

Kluber made just 61 pitches and it's no surprise after suffering a hamstring injury a couple of weeks ago. The record and 3.44 ERA are unfair to the reigning Cy Young winner as all of his peripherals are still elite. The strikeout rate, walk rate, and WHIP are on par with his Cy Young season and the only major difference is the ERA. Kluber is a fantastic bet to bounce back next season and will likely be a nice value on draft day.

Cody Anderson is set to start Friday with Carlos Carrasco and Josh Tomlin following him to the mound over the next two days. Danny Salazar will go Tuesday and Corey Kluber on Wednesday in Minnesota.
