Kluber allowed five runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six over four innings against the Angels on Monday. He did not factor into the decision.
Monday was Kluber's first start in just over three months after spending time on the injured list with a right shoulder strain. Kluber held the Angels scoreless for the first three innings but broke down in the fourth. He allowed a run to score after three consecutive base hits and then loaded the bases with a walk before surrendering a grand slam to Jack Mayfield. The 35-year-old now owns a 3.61 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and the 61:25 K:BB over 57.1 innings. He'll look to have a bounceback performance against Baltimore over the weekend.
