Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber will watch his workload this offseason to ensure that his marvelous 2014 season doesn't go to waste in 2015. Pitching coach Mickey Callaway has met with Kluber to discuss a way to balance the team's plans for him and his comfort level in the offseason. "What we're trying to accomplish," Callaway said, "is keeping this from one day all catching up to him." One idea is to have Kluber throw more simulated games early in the preseason, and the other idea is to have him throw fewer bullpens before he arrives to spring training.

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber allowed just one earned run and six hits with two walks and seven strikeouts over 7 1/3 innings to pick up his 12th win of the season Monday, Aug. 4, against the Cincinnati Reds. Since the All-Star break, Kluber has allowed just three earned runs, three walks and 35 strikeouts over 34 innings.
Fantasy Tip: Not many saw this one coming, but not only has Kluber ascended to ace status in Cleveland, but he ranks among the Top 10 fantasy pitchers in the league lately. Still, he pitches for a mediocre team, and fantasy owners in non-keeper leagues would do well to try and strike while the iron is hot and trade him while his value is at its pinnacle.
