Corey Kluber News
Boston Red Sox right-hander Corey Kluber (shoulder) won't pitch again this season, according to MLB.com. The 37-year-old was in the middle of a rehab assignment but will instead focus on getting healthy during the offseason from shoulder inflammation that's kept him on the shelf since June 20. Kluber's first season in Boston wasn't pretty, as he sported a 7.04 ERA and 1.64 WHIP with 42 punchouts over 55 innings split between the rotation and bullpen. The former MVP will likely enter 2024 as a free agent, as the Red Sox hold a club option, and he'll look to start fresh elsewhere.
Boston Red Sox right-hander Corey Kluber (shoulder), who last pitched in a minor-league rehab outing on July 26, is making progress. Manager Alex Cora said Kluber will throw a bullpen session soon, and the hope is that if all goes well, he will go on another rehab assignment. Cora said on Saturday that the Red Sox hope Kluber can return to pitch again in the big leagues in 2023. The 37-year-old veteran isn't guaranteed to return this year, though, and he should remain on the waiver wire in all fantasy leagues the rest of the way. In 15 appearances (nine starts) for Boston before his injury, he posted a rough 7.04 ERA, 1.64 WHIP, one save and 42 strikeouts in 55 innings pitched.
The Boston Red Sox transferred right-handed pitcher Corey Kluber (shoulder) to the 60-day injured list on Friday. The 37-year-old has been shut down from throwing since his body didn't respond well to a minor-league rehab appearance on July 26. Kluber started playing catch this week, but he remains without a return timetable. The veteran righty was sent the 15-day IL on June 21 with right shoulder inflammation, but he is unlikely to make a significant fantasy impact the rest of the way. Kluber drags a troublesome 7.04 ERA and 1.64 WHIP with 42 strikeouts across 55 innings this season.
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.
