Indians | Corey Kluber fans 11 Cubs

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 15:16:07 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber stuck out 11 batters while allowing one run on four hits over 7 2/3 innings during the Indians' 2-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs Monday, Aug. 24. Kluber did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber ($9,300, 18.6% of cap) has now struck out 37 batters through 31 2/3 innings over his past four starts. He has an incredibly disappointing eight wins this season, which has really hurt his seasonal value. He remains inconsistent from start to start, so his boom-or-boost returns at FantasyScore make him a risky selection. Still, he usually delivers in the strikeout department.

Indians | Corey Kluber relying more on four-seamer

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 17:39:40 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber has been using his four-seam fastball much more frequently this season than last year, when he won the American League Cy Young Award. He has used the pitch 21.1 percent of the time this year, as opposed to 3.9 percent of the time in 2014. As a result, his usage of the two-seam fastball has dropped from 48.6 percent last year to 30.4 percent in 2015. "It's not a concerted effort to throw one or the other," he said. "It's just having the ability to throw both of them kind of adds to your arsenal."

Fantasy Tip: The four-seamer was Kluber's ($9,300, 18.6% of cap) primary fastball throughout his minor league career and he began using it again more often this year because opposing hitters were jumping on his two-seamer. He has posted a 3.36 ERA in 21 outings since May 1, after going 0-3 with a 4.24 ERA in five starts during the month of April.

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 20:16:38 -0700

Indians | Corey Kluber still a league leader

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 20:35:17 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber leads American League pitchers with 84 no-hit innings this season, four ahead of Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray and five ahead of Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber ($9,300, 18.6% of cap) doesn't have the wins that he did from a year ago when he won the American League Cy Young Award, but more often than not, especially early in the season, he wasn't getting much in the way of run support. He remains a viable FantasyScore option due to his high K/9 (strikeouts per nine innings) ratio and low ERA.

Indians | Corey Kluber goes the distance

Sun, 09 Aug 2015 18:43:26 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber threw his third complete game of the season in a win over the Minnesota Twins Sunday, Aug. 9, allowing one run on three hits and striking out 10.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) has had more bad games this season than he did in his Cy Young campaign last year, but he is still striking out more than a batter an inning and has been dominant on more than one occasion. If the matchup is right, don't hesitate to pay for Kluber at FantasyScore.

Indians | Corey Kluber strong in Sunday start

Sun, 09 Aug 2015 15:34:25 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber tossed 6 2/3 innings of no-hit ball Sunday, Aug. 9, against the Minnesota Twins. Kluber picked up the victory and pitched his seventh 10-strikeout game of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) has posted solid numbers, but he is 7-12 mainly because the Indians aren't hitting for him. He should be started in FantasyScore as Kluber can still earn owners points based on those strikeouts.

Indians | Corey Kluber goes the distance

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:09:17 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber allowed just one earned run with five hits and one walk while striking out six in a complete game win against the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, July 29. It was his second complete game of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) was 0-3 against the Royals this season, so his performance was a bit of a surprise for FantasyScore players. He has lasted at least 6 2/3 innings in eight straight outings, and he has at least five strikeouts in all of those performances. Win or lose, he continues to produce defense stat lines.

White Sox | Melky Cabrera owns Corey Kluber

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 19:54:42 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera went 2-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in a 6-0 win over the Cleveland Indians Friday, July 24, and he is now batting .474 against SP Corey Kluber in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is having his best month of the season, and he has seven RBI over his last four games. His price tag won’t break the bank, so feel free to take advantage of his recent surge and plug him in at FantasyScore.

Indians | No support for Corey Kluber

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 15:49:12 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber allowed two runs on four hits in a loss to the Oakland Athletics Sunday, July 12, and he is receiving an average of 2.3 runs of support per start this year.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber ($8,500, 17.0% of cap) fell to 4-10, and he has already surpassed his loss total from last season. Kluber hasn't been as dominant as he was in 2014, but he has pitched much better than his record suggests. He is one of the elite strikeout artists and is worth paying for at FantasyScore against most opponents.

Indians | Corey Kluber picks up win

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 21:05:25 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber allowed five hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings in a win Tuesday, July 7, against the Houston Astros. He moved past Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale for the major league lead in strikeouts with 148.

Fantasy Tip: Klubot ($8,500; or 17.0% of cap) has a poor 4-9 record, but he has a respectable 3.45 ERA which speaks to the lack of run support he has received. FantasyScore players will still find a solid value in Kluber.
