Indians | Corey Kluber pitches well

Wed, 25 May 2016 20:23:09 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber allowed two runs on seven hits in 7 1/3 innings against the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, May 25, to pick up his fourth win of the season. He struck out nine batters and walked one during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber has had better performances over his last handful of starts and has allowed only four runs in his last two games. He is scheduled to face the Texas Rangers in his next start and should be a decent starting option even though he will be facing a tough opponent.

Indains | Corey Kluber fans nine White Sox

Wed, 25 May 2016 15:44:54 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber allowed two runs -- one earned -- on seven hits and one walk while striking out nine batters through 7 1/3 innings during Cleveland's 4-3 win over the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber has been hit or miss this season and has allowed three runs or more in five of his 10 starts, but he has now allowed just three earned runs over his past 14 1/3 innings over two starts. He has also struck out 15 batters during the stretch. Expect Kluber to flirt with being a fantasy ace going forward with plenty of strikeouts and the odd rough outing a part of the package.

White Sox | Jose Abreu has diagnostics on Klubot

Wed, 25 May 2016 11:02:47 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu, who broke a skid with three hits Tuesday, May 24, has hit Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber to a tune of .357 with three homers in 28 at-bats in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Abreu will face off against Kluber Wednesday. Abreu is catching him at the right time because he hasn't been his typical dominant self. Abreu is a high-end consideration today.

Indians | Corey Kluber spins a gem vs. Tigers

Wed, 04 May 2016 17:48:40 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber pitched a shutout with just five hits and two walks allowed while striking out seven batters during Cleveland's 4-0 win over the Detroit Tigers Wednesday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber currently boasts a 3.35 ERA, a 0.95 WHIP, and he has struck out 42 batters through 43 innings over his first six starts of the season. One concern, which is largely out of his control, is Kluber has just 10 wins through his past 37 starts. It is a bit of a drag on his fantasy value, but most nights, he does enough on the mound to win, so continue to start him confidently.

Tigers | Jarrod Saltalamacchia clubs sixth homer

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 14:09:02 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Jarrod Saltalamacchia accounted for his team's only run on Saturday, April 23, clubbing a sinker from Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber into the right-field stands.

Fantasy Tip: In one of the more surprising developments during the first month of the season, Salty ranks tied for second in the American League in home runs (six) and trails only Josh Donaldson in RBI (15). At this rate, it might be hard for manager Brad Ausmus to give James McCann his starting job back. Saltalamacchia needs to be owned in all leagues right now, even if Ausmus eventually decides to use a left-right platoon when McCann comes off the disabled list.

Indians | Corey Kluber rediscovers Cy Young form

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 14:01:14 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber was electric against the Detroit Tigers on Saturday, April 23, yielding only a solo homer among the two hits he allowed over eight frames while striking out a season-high 10.

Fantasy Tip: The 2014 American League Cy Young Award winner entered Saturday with a 6.16 ERA and 1.42 WHIP, so the fact he toyed with one of the better offenses in the majors is a good sign. Kluber certainly isn't out of the woods yet in terms of being trusted every time he takes the mound, but owners can sure feel a lot better about getting another dominant effort from him when he faces the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday.

Indians | Corey Kluber continues to struggle

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 15:53:58 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber's velocity hasn't been the issue with his tough start to the season. Pitching coach Mickey Callaway thinks Kluber's pitch usage and few breaking balls early in games has led to mechanical issues. Kluber's fastball was coming in slower than normal early in his last outing, and he's averaging 92.6 mph with his sinker, which is a one-mph decrease from April of last year. "He's probably right in line with what he's been in the past at this time of year," Callaway said. "Obviously, the older you get, the more you pitch, the more velocity you lose. Most guys at Kluber's age aren't gaining two mph. They're losing two mph. ... I think the biggest issue with him is not the velocity. It's making pitches and getting depth on his fastball and things like that."

Fantasy Tip: The Klubot has malfunctioned in the early going, with an 0-3 record, 6.16 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in his three outings. Kluber should be fine, though, and he's still fanning 9.0 hitters per nine innings despite the small drop in velocity. This could be the perfect time to buy low on the Indians ace.

Indians | Corey Kluber gets clobbered

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 13:28:57 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber recorded eight strikeouts, but he also surrendered a season-high six runs on nine hits across six innings in a home loss to the New York Mets on Sunday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber flashed dominance in his previous outing, but he has still allowed three or more runs in every start this season after doing so only three times in his final nine starts last year. The former Cy Young Award winner hasn't done enough to deserve the benefit of the doubt in his next scheduled start at the Detroit Tigers on Saturday and should be benched in fantasy for that outing.

Indians | Klubot effective despite loss

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 22:59:15 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber allowed three earned runs, four hits and two walks with six strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings in a loss against the Tampa Bay Rays Tuesday, April 12.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber was a lot better than his initial outing of the season, but the results were the same - a loss. The 2014 American League Cy Young winner might pitch effectively many nights but still come up short in 2016. The Indians offense is rather erratic, but win or lose Klubot will give fantasy owners plenty of reason to smile with his high strikeout numbers.
