Kluber (forearm) will undergo X-rays on Thursday, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Kluber has been sidelined all month with a non-displaced fracture of his right forearm. If Thursday's tests go as planned, the right-hander could be cleared to transition from his cast to a removable splint, at which point a possible timetable for his return will hopefully emerge.
Kluber doesn't expect his fractured forearm to be season-ending but he won't have a clear sense of his return timetable for several weeks, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Kluber won't need surgery (at least for now) after being hit in the arm by a line drive, but the team won't be able to determine a target return date until they see how the bone heals. The fact that the injury isn't expected to be season-ending is a positive, but the fact that it was necessary to rule that out suggests that his absence could stretch longer than just a few weeks.
Kluber (forearm) will be placed on the injured list Friday, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports. The news comes as little surprise after Kluber was struck with a line drive Wednesday and suffered a non-displaced fracture of his right forearm. The veteran right-hander is still without a recovery timetable, but the team is expected to have more information later Friday.
Kluber was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of his right forearm Wednesday after undergoing X-rays, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Kluber was struck by a 102.2-mph line drive in the right forearm during Wednesday's start at Miami. The veteran right-hander should receive a recovery timetable Thursday as he returns to Cleveland to be further evaluated. The Indians' depth in the starting rotation will be tested even further with Mike Clevinger (back) already on the 60-day injured list.
Kluber was diagnosed with a right forearm bruise and is undergoing X-rays after leaving Wednesday's start at Miami, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports. Kluber was hit in the forearm by a 102.2-mph line drive during the fifth inning Wednesday and was promptly removed from the game.
