Bruce Chen falls apart in fifth in loss to Indians
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals left-hander Bruce Chen was fine for four innings Thursday in Cleveland before a collapse that resulted in defeat.

Struggles the second time around in a lineup continued to plague Chen as his earned run average was elevated to 7.45 on the season. He retired the first 12 batters he faced before the first five reached base in the fifth.

Chen never made it through that inning as he was stung by a single by David Murphy and double by Asdrubal Cabrera, both of which drove in two runs. He will have a chance to redeem himself next Wednesday against Toronto.

Corey Kluber a royal pain to Royals with four-hitter
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Indians right-hander Corey Kluber pitched the first complete game of his career and would have registered a shutout if not for an error by Nick Swisher that led to an unearned run Thursday afternoon against Kansas City.

Kluber lowered his earned run average from 5.40 to 3.90 with the four-hitter in which he threw just 101 pitches, walked none and struck out 11. He has yielded nine earned runs in 32 innings since a disastrous first start of the season in Oakland.

The last Indians pitcher to throw a complete game at home with 11 or more strikeouts and no walks was Len Barker in 1981. And that was a perfect game.

Kluber will seek to maintain his momentum in his next start Tuesday against the host Angels.

Struggling Erasmo Ramirez sent to Class A
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Mariners starter Erasmo Ramirez has been sent to Class A High Desert after a miserable start to the season. The scheduling there will allow him to return to pitch one of the doubleheader games in Oakland on May 7, per ESPN Seattle.

Ramirez rebounded late in his last start against Houston, but that was not enough to save him from demotion. He gave up 18 earned runs in his first 20 innings pitched in 2014. He is 1-3 with a 6.75 ERA on the year.

Manager worried about Dustin McGowan stamina
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Three poor performances in four outings for Blue Jays starter Dustin McGowan has John Gibbons a bit concerned. So does the pitcher struggling to perform deeper into games.

"If it's on his mind, that's a little bit of a red flag," Gibbons told the MLB Radio Network. "The ball is coming out good, the stuff's good."

The results are not good. Aside from a six-inning shutout performance in a defeat of Baltimore, he has given up 13 runs on 19 hits in 10 2/3 innings. He failed to exceed four innings pitched in any of those starts.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe has fallen into an inevitable dropoff after a torrid start to the season.
