Kluber has started the opener the past two seasons, but Francona isn't ready to say if the right-hander will get the nod on April...

Kluber easing into Spring Training workload

There were sleepless nights for ace Corey Kluber this past winter. In the months following the Indians' loss in the World Series, the right-hander would often be out of bed when the moon was up, though it was not the team's postseason run that was on his mind.

Top 10 starting pitchers in baseball heading into spring training

Without a doubt, pulling apart the ten best arms in the game at any point is a tough-to-nearly-impossible task. However, in today’s game, with a firmly established group of top arms between the ages of 27-33, it is a specifically tough group to crack. It could be argued that even cracking the top 20 is a feat, as even last year’s American League Cy Young winner is the third best...

Corey Kluber’s Outing Reflected the Times

Larry Vanover was the home-plate umpire yesterday. At one point on Twitter I noticed he was trending, so, you probably know what that means. After one particular half-inning, Jon Lester walked over to Vanover to have a little chat, presumably to try to clear some air. There were disagreements.
