Kluber tossed 4.1 innings, allowing three runs on eight hits and striking out four in the win over the Rangers on Wednesday. After tossing a no-hitter in his last start against them, the 35-year-old struggled to keep the Rangers off the bases in this one, ultimately surrendering three separate RBI singles. The eight hits allowed were his highest total of the season, while he went without giving up a walk for the first time. Overall he has posted a 5.73 ERA and 1.59 WHIP over 22 innings since returning from the 60-day injured list Aug. 30. Kluber is expected to face the Blue Jays on Tuesday in his next start.
Kluber (5-3) allowed four hits and two walks while striking out four in six shutout innings to earn the win over Cleveland on Friday. He also hit one batter. The right-hander worked a full starter's assignment, throwing 61 of 95 pitches in a fairly dominant start. Kluber had struggled a bit in his first three games since returning from a shoulder injury, allowing 11 runs in 11.2 innings in that span, but he was much closer to his best form Friday. The strong start lowered his ERA to 3.68 with a 1.28 WHIP and 76:32 K:BB through 71 innings overall. Kluber lines up for a home start versus his other former team, Texas, next week.
Kluber allowed four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six across four innings in the win over the Mets on Saturday. He did not factor into the decision. Kluber surrendered a home run in the third inning to Javier Baez. He allowed three runs in the second inning, and it took him 82 pitches to get through four frames. The 35-year-old has not thrown more than four innings in his three starts since returning from the 60-day injured list with a shoulder injury. He has a 4.02 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with 72 strikeouts in 65 innings.
Kluber allowed two runs on four hits and three walks with five strikeouts in 3.2 innings in a no-decision versus Baltimore on Sunday. The right-hander surrendered a solo home run to Austin Hays in the second inning and a sacrifice fly to Jorge Mateo in the fourth to account for the runs. Kluber threw 46 of 78 pitches for strikes in his second start back from a shoulder strain. The right-hander has walked five in 7.2 innings since he returned, showing a lack of control likely due to his extended absence. He has a 3.69 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 66:28 K:BB across 61 innings overall. Kluber lines up for a road start versus the Mets in next weekend's Subway Series, but he's yet to handle a full starter's workload, and it's unclear how deep he'll be able to pitch in his next turn.
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.
