Right-hander Corey Kluber was officially activated from the 15-day disabled list this afternoon, returning to the Cleveland Indians active roster for a start tonight against the New York Mets. Kluber has been on the disabled list for the past month with right long finger soreness, which was a similar issue that plagued Zach McAllister earlier in the season. Kluber’s reportedly scheduled to be on a 65-pitch limit in tonight’s start, which will test the Indians bullpen. The 27-year-old former San Diego Padres farmhand is having a career season at the major league level. After being Brett Myers’ replacement in the rotation in late April, he’s starred as one of the team’s most consistent performers. He’s 7-5 with a 3.54 ERA in his 21 outings, made complete by a sensational 4.46 K/BB ratio and 3.16 FIP. FanGraphs has written dozens of times about Kluber, even going so far as creating the “Corey Kluber Society” in its daily notes category. They tried out the Danny Salazar Society in Kluber’s month-long absence, but anxiously previewed his return to the rotation earlier today. The Indians roster now stands at 37 players, including 21 pitchers. Kluber will face off against Mets lefty Jonathon Niese (6-6, 3.66 ERA) tonight, in a very solid pitching matchup. The team also announced, via Twitter, that outfielder Tim Fedroff and shortstop Juan Diaz had both cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A Columbus. Both were designated for assignment in last week’s flurry of roster moves. [Related: 22 to go: Analyzing the Indians’ still-remaining Wild Card hopes]
