Corey Kluber News
New York Yankees starting pitcher Corey Kluber (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday. Kluber was diagnosed with a right shoulder strain, though the move to the 60-day injured list isn't because of a new development in his status but for roster management purposes. The veteran hurler was able to resume throwing on Friday and was running in the outfield on Saturday- both encouraging signs- though his return is still weeks away. Hopefully, Kluber looks more like he did in May than April when he returns. He pitched a 2.27 ERA in 31 2/3 innings with a 36:10 strikeout-to-walk ratio in May.
New York Yankees starting pitcher Corey Kluber (shoulder) resumed playing catch on Friday. Kluber landed on the injured list nine days ago with a right shoulder strain, though manager Aaron Boone had spoken Thursday about optimism regarding his status. The fact that the veteran hurler was able to throw supports that positive outlook, though his timetable for a return remains about two months out. Michael King and Deivi Garcia seem like the most likely beneficiaries of Kluber's absence, though Luis Severino will make his return to the rotation sometime this summer.
New York Yankees starting pitcher Corey Kluber (shoulder) should start throwing on flat ground in the next few days, according to Yankees manager Aaron Boone. Boone talked to reporters through Zoom on Thursday and said, "I would say there's some optimism," in regards to Kluber. While the timeline on Kluber still remains about two months, it's at least encouraging to see that Boone is optimistic about where things are going.
New York Yankees starting pitcher Corey Kluber is looking to return to form after back-to-back injury-marred seasons limited him to just 36.2 innings since 2019. Kluber was able to avoid surgery for his latest injury a torn muscle in his right shoulder and it shouldn't affect his velocity or accuracy going forward. But while this injury shouldn't be a problem in 2021, Kluber's velocity had already been dropping about two to three miles per hour from his 2014 numbers. Along with that, after posting career-highs with a 5.8 percent barrel rate and 33.1 percent hard-hit rate in 2018 (his last full season), Kluber surpassed those marks with an 8.9 percent barrel rate and 38.4 percent hard-hit rate over 35.2 innings in 2019. Managers shouldn't expect a return to pre-2019 numbers for Kluber, but if you assume he stays healthy and predict his floor at 10 wins, a 3.30 ERA and 140 strikeouts with the potential to pitch better than that, he will be well worth drafting at his current ADP of 250.
