Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber (finger) could miss the rest of the season with a sprained right middle finger. SP Zach McAllister spent six weeks on the disabled list with a middle finger sprain earlier this year. Kluber was 7-5 with a 3.54 ERA in 19 starts this year. SP Danny Salazar will take Kluber's place in the rotation, starting against the Detroit Tigers Wednesday, Aug. 7.
Fantasy Tip: Kluber can likely be dropped in most shallow leagues. Salazar should be a target in AL-only universes, but the fact that he'll be shut down before the end of the year to limit his innings will keep him relegated to single-league formats.

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona has set his post-All-Star Game rotation, and SP Corey Kluber will start Saturday, July 20, with SP Justin Masterson working Sunday, July 21, against the Minnesota Twins.
Fantasy Tip: If your fantasy league uses the games of the shortened scoring period from Friday through Sunday, you're in luck. Start Kluber and Masterson as you normally would.
