Corey Kluber News
The Boston Red Sox and free-agent right-hander Corey Kluber agreed to a one-year deal with a team option for the 2024 season on Wednesday, according to sources familiar with the agreement. The New York Post's Jon Heyman reports that the deal is for $10 million, with an $11 million option for 2024. The three-time All-Star and two-time Cy Young winner spent the 2022 season pitching for the Tampa Bay Rays, going 10-10 with a 4.34 ERA (3.57 FIP), 1.21 WHIP and 20.2 percent strikeout rate in 31 starts covering 164 innings pitched. The 36-year-old was respectable for the Rays last year, but injuries will be a concern for fantasy managers, as well as his decrease in strikeout rate and velocity. And staying in the tough American League East in a hitter's park won't be easy as he nears the end of his career.
Tampa Bay Rays starter Corey Kluber struck out four batters in five innings of work in his most recent outing on Sunday against the Houston Astros. The veteran also gave up six hits, a pair of runs, a home run, and a walk. Kluber needed 78 pitches to get through the five innings and registered 11 swinging strikes and a 28% CSW rate. In 31 starts this season, the right-hander has pitched to a 4.34 ERA, a 3.57 FIP, 139 strikeouts, and 21 walks in 164 innings for Tampa Bay.
Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Corey Kluber will be looking to build off his fantastic start from Saturday's 3-1 win over the New York Yankees during Thursday's series finale against Kluber's former team, the Texas Rangers. Kluber threw six innings on Saturday while giving up one earned run on three hits while striking out five batters. It's been very Jekyll and Hyde for Kluber in 2022, as the veteran cannot seem to put together consistently good performances. In May in particular, Kluber threw 24 innings while giving up 13 earned runs on 26 hits, including five home runs. Kluber is also struggling away from Tropicana Field, giving up 12 earned runs on 23 hits over 17 innings. The numbers show that Kluber is struggling in night games, giving up 15 earned runs on 27 hits over 20 innings. With the Rangers winning six out of their last seven games, be wary of starting Kluber on Thursday night.
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.
