Corey Kluber News
New York Yankees starting pitcher Corey Kluber put together a so-so effort in Thursday's no-decision against the Blue Jays. Kluber pitched 4 2/3 innings allowing two runs on seven hits while striking out a pair. He issued just one walk. While the numbers weren't great, Kluber encouragingly managed to generate 11 whiffs, with at least two of them on four different pitches. The veteran right-hander had just one win in September while pitching to a 4.37 ERA, though the underlying numbers suggest he's close to looking like the Kluber from earlier in the year.
New York Yankees starting pitcher Corey Kluber didn't have his best stuff in Wednesday's no-decision against the Rangers. Kluber pitched just 4 1/3 innings, allowing three runs on a whopping eight hits. The veteran did exhibit solid control, striking out four batters with no walks issued. Most of Kluber's hits were allowed on two-strike counts, a frustrating occurrence for both him and his fantasy managers. However, Kluber's stuff appears to be there- he simply needs to locate better in those specific scenarios. He'll get a tough matchup in a big game against the Blue Jays his next time out, though he could be worth going back to, as he's no stranger to pitching in big games.
New York Yankees starting pitcher Corey Kluber delivered his best outing since returning from the injured list in a win over the Indians Friday. Pitching against his former team, Kluber tossed six shutout innings, allowing four hits and walking two while fanning four batters. The veteran righty had the swing-and-miss stuff working, as he induced 15 whiffs, 14 of them on his cutter and curveball. While fantasy managers would like to see more strikeouts, this was still a very encouraging outing by the Alabama native, who lowered his season ERA and WHIP to 3.68 and 1.28. He'll take on the Rangers next, who were no-hit by Kluber earlier this year.
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.
