Top Corey Kluber News

  • Rays' Corey Kluber: Knocked out early in Toronto

    Kluber (3-5) took the loss Friday against the Blue Jays, giving up five runs on seven hits and two walks in three innings of work while striking out just one.

    Kluber faced the minimum through two innings but wound up facing 11 batters in a five-run third inning. Six of the first seven batters in that frame reached base, with five of them doing so via a double. He was replaced by Phoenix Sanders to start the fourth inning. If there's a positive here for Kluber, it's that the poor outing doesn't appear to be part of any sort of trend, as he'd given up a total of four earned runs across his last three starts. He'll try to recapture that level of performance Wednesday in Boston.

  • Rays' Corey Kluber: Effective against Pirates

    Kluber pitched 5.1 innings, giving up two runs on five hits while striking out six in Saturday's win over the Pirates. He did not factor into the decision.

    Kluber was effective in this one, tossing 47 of his 63 pitches for strikes. Diego Castillo took him deep for a solo shot in the top of the third and Bryan Reynolds singled in another run later in the frame, accounting for all the damage against him. Kluber has now surrendered three or fewer runs in eight straight outings, producing a 2.70 ERA over those contests. The 36-year-old now owns a 3.45 ERA and 1.08 WHIP with 66 strikeouts over 73 frames through 14 starts in 2022.

  • Rays' Corey Kluber: Charged with unlucky loss

    Kluber (3-4) allowed two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out six in six innings to take the loss during Sunday's game against the Orioles.

    Kluber posted a second consecutive quality start Sunday, but he's been forced to settle for losses in his last two outings. The 36-year-old gave up eight runs during the Rays' loss to the Angels on May 10 but has settled down since then and hasn't allowed more than three runs in any of his last seven outings. Across those seven starts, he's posted a 2.61 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in 38 innings. Kluber tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Pirates on Saturday.

  • Rays' Corey Kluber: Strong start in loss

    Kluber (3-3) took the loss Tuesday against the Yankees, allowing two unearned runs on four hits, a hit batsman and a walk while striking out three in six innings.

    Kluber held the Yankees hitless through the first three innings but two Tampa Bay errors led to his unearned runs in the fourth inning. The veteran has had two strong outings against the Yankees this season, allowing just one earned run in 12 innings. Over his last six starts the 36-year-old has a 2.53 ERA and a 27:4 K:BB in 32 innings.

  • Rays' Corey Kluber: Aided by offensive support

    Kluber (3-2) allowed three earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out five across five innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Cardinals.

    Kluber was handed a five-run lead within the first three innings and took advantage to earn the win. Despite giving up three runs, he wasn't hit particularly hard, as Tyler O'Neill registered the only extra-base hit against Kluber with a solo home run in the fourth inning. Kluber has allowed three or fewer earned runs in five consecutive starts, which has helped him maintain a 3.88 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 51:9 K:BB across 55.2 innings on the season.

  • Rays' Corey Kluber: Shuts down Rangers

    Kluber (2-2) allowed one earned run on four hits and no walks while striking out four across six innings to earn the win Thursday against the Rangers.

    Kluber held the Rangers off the scoreboard until he surrendered a solo home run to Marcus Semien in the sixth inning. Though an eight-run outing against the Angels on May 10 bloats his overall line, Kluber has allowed two earned runs or fewer in eight of his 10 starts this season. He's particularly shown excellent control by surrendering only eight walks across 50.2 innings.

  • Rays' Corey Kluber: Bounces back in no-decision

    Kluber allowed a run on three hits and struck out five in six innings versus the Yankees on Saturday. He did not factor in the decision.

    Kluber alternated effective and short starts during May, ending the month on a high note with one of his best outings of the year. The only run against him came on an Anthony Rizzo sacrifice fly in the first inning. Kluber has a 4.03 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 42:8 K:BB in 44.2 innings across nine starts this year, but it's a pair of bad games (four runs allowed to the Red Sox on April 22 and eight runs to the Angels on May 10) that have inflated his numbers. He carries a 1-2 record into next week's projected road start versus the Rangers.

  • Rays' Corey Kluber: Lasts just three innings Sunday

    Kluber allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two in three innings during Sunday's loss to the Orioles. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Although Kluber held Baltimore to just two runs early in Sunday's matchup, he was pulled after throwing 73 pitches over three innings. The right-hander has recorded quality starts in three of his last five outings, but he's also been pulled after three innings in two of his last three starts. Over his first eight appearances in 2022, the 36-year-old has posted a 4.42 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 38.2 innings. Kluber tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Yankees on Saturday.

  • Rays' Corey Kluber: Stuck with tough-luck no-decision

    Kluber didn't factor into the decision Monday against the Tigers after allowing two runs on four hits while striking out eight over six innings.

    Kluber gave up both earned runs in the top of the fourth inning on a two-run blast by Jonathan Schoop, but he was otherwise solid on a day the Rays' offense struggled. It was a positive sign to see the right-hander bounce back following a horrendous outing his last time out, and he's now surrendered two runs or fewer in three of his last four starts.

  • Rays' Corey Kluber: Crushed in loss

    Kluber (1-2) took the loss after allowing eight runs on 11 hits in three innings while striking out two in a 12-0 defeat Tuesday against the Angels.

    Kluber was hit hard throughout the night, allowing multiple runs in each of his three frames and giving up homers to Mike Trout and Chad Wallach. Coming into the game, Kluber had been quite stingy, allowing only seven runs and two homers in 26.2 innings. Following the rough start, the veteran's ERA jumped from 2.36 to 4.60. Coincidentally, the only other time in his 12-year career that he allowed eight runs was May 10, 2013, nine years ago to the day.

  • Rays' Corey Kluber: Six scoreless innings

    Kluber allowed three hits and one walk while striking out seven across six scoreless innings Wednesday against the Athletics. He did not factor into the decision.

    Kluber needed only 64 pitches to retire 18 batters, and he has now completed six innings in consecutive starts. He also generated 10 swinging strikes to aid him to a season-best seven strikeouts. Kluber has now allowed two or fewer earned runs in four of his five starts to begin the campaign, and he owns a 2.36 ERA with a 25:6 K:BB across 26.2 frames.

  • Rays' Corey Kluber: Sharp in first win of year

    Kluber (1-1) picked up the win in Friday's 6-1 victory over the Twins, allowing one run on one hit over six innings. He struck out six without walking a batter.

    The right-hander fired an efficient 71 pitches (48 strikes) before exiting the game with his first quality start of the season. Kluber isn't the ace he was at his peak in Cleveland, but the 36-year-old has had a solid start to 2022, posting a 3.05 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 18:5 K:BB through 20.2 innings.

  • Rays' Corey Kluber: Next start pushed to Friday

    Kluber is scheduled to make his next start Friday against the Twins in Tampa rather than Thursday against the Mariners as originally planned, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    After he was roughed up four runs on 11 hits and a walk over five innings in his most recent start April 22 against the Red Sox, Kluber will get five days' rest rather than the typical four. The Rays haven't named a fill-in starter for Thursday's game and will presumably treat the contest as a bullpen day.

  • Rays' Corey Kluber: Hit hard in loss

    Kluber (0-1) allowed four runs on 11 hits in five innings, taking the loss Friday against Boston. He walked a batter and struck out three.

    Kluber gave up a pair of runs in both the first and third innings. The damage could have been greater had he not induced two double-play ground balls. After allowing only two runs and seven hits combined in his first two starts, the righty put together his least effective start of the season, allowing 12 of 25 batters to reach safely.

  • Rays' Corey Kluber: Another solid outing

    Kluber allowed two earned runs on four hits and no walks while striking out four across five innings Saturday against the White Sox. He did not factor into the decision.

    Kluber surrendered a two-run home run to Jose Abreu in the fourth inning, accounting for the only damage he allowed in his outing. He needed only 75 pitches to retire 15 hitters, which was a positive step forward in efficiency after he issued four free passes across only 4.2 innings in his opening start of the campaign. Otherwise, results have been positive for Kluber early on as he's allowed a mere two earned runs with nine strikeouts across 9.2 frames.

  • Rays' Corey Kluber: Scoreless in Rays debut

    Kluber allowed three hits and four walks over 4.2 shutout innings in Sunday's win over Baltimore. He struck out five and did not factor in the decision.

    Kluber was one out away from finishing the fifth inning and earning a win in his Rays debut before walking Cedric Mullins and yielding a single to Ryan Mountcastle. He tossed 52 of 87 pitches for strikes and forced 12 whiffs. The veteran righty posted a 3.83 ERA in 80 innings with the Yankees last season. Kluber is lined up to face the White Sox in Chicago next week.
