Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber worked 4 2/3 innings in a minor-league spring game against the club's Double-A affiliate, and he allowed two runs, nine hits and a walk with five strikeouts while needing 86 pitches. "He got hit a little bit," manager Terry Francona said. "They put the barrel on it a few times. He was trying to establish his fastball early, which we wanted him to, and he got hit a little bit. Then he started throwing his breaking ball and he started getting them out. We want him to be more aggressive with that fastball."
