Spring Invite Paulino May Provide Pitching Depth

Regardless of how strong a team’s starting rotation is, having some extra depth is never a bad thing. The Cleveland Indians appear to be overloaded in their starting five, with Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, and Danny Salazar looking to be locks on the staff in April, barring unforeseen injury issues. For the remaining two spots, the club already has Trevor Bauer and Josh Tomlin...

Looking Back: Kluber in Complete Control in Complete Game Gem

In the defense of his 2014 Cy Young win, Corey Kluber’s 2015 season did not play out as he might have expected. Sure, there were lots of high expectations on the Tribe’s fourth winner of the award and the newly crowned staff ace to start the year. Some shaky outings early in the season, paired with minuscule run support, left Kluber on the losing side of the slate more often...

Looking Back: Kluber K’s 18 in Combined One-Hit Masterpiece

In his defense of the American League Cy Young Award, Corey Kluber looked a shell of his former self to begin the 2015 season. It certainly was not entirely his fault. Through his first seven games, the Indians had been held winless and he took the loss in five games. While his 5.04 ERA in that stretch gave him a deserving chunk of the blame, the 18 runs of offense provided by his...

Not in Cy Young Conversation This Year, Kluber Still Remains a True Ace

Back-to-back Cy Young seasons and the pitchers who successfully earn them do not simply fall off trees. The Clayton Kershaws and Roger Clemens and Pedro Martinez‘s and Randy Johnson‘s of the world are few and far between. To win one such trophy is a feat in and of itself. In 2014, Cleveland’s Corey Kluber had one of those great seasons joining the great names before him to...

Corey Kluber And His Very Hittable Fastball

There is no bigger threat to a pitcher’s longevity than a flat, lifeless fastball. From Little League to the Big Leagues, any pitcher winging pitiful fastballs is almost always greeted by a hitter sending his meager offering somewhere far away from home plate.Corey Kluber, the American League’s 2014 Cy Young Award winner, doesn’t have a great fastball. It’s not pitiful...

What happened to the Indians this season?

By Joe Lucia The Cleveland Indians were a popular pick to make the playoffs this season. Yours truly felt that Cleveland would coast to the AL Central title following an 85-win 2014. But things obviously haven’t gone according to plans. Through 113 games, the Tribe are 53-60, a whopping 14.5 games behind the Royals in the AL Central. Something went wrong with this team this season...

Video: Watch what happens when you “ruin” a no-hitter

Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber threw a complete masterpiece on Sunday afternoon, not allowing his first hit until the seventh inning when Minnesota Twins first baseman Joe Mauer lined a two-out, one-two fastball to left field. The belt-high pitch was slapped the opposite way, dropping in front of Indians left fielder Michael Brantley. The ball was well hit by a quality...

Ball Played: Brantley, Kluber’s blank expression blanks Astros

Corey Kluber getting left off of the American League All-Star team has left many analysts who favor advanced statistics baffled, as he is having another strong season when looking at stats like FIP, WAR, K%, SIERA, among others1 . Of course, when looking at his record (4-9 personal record or 5-13 team record when he starts) and ERA (3.45) an old-school analyst can wonder why there...

The resurgence of Corey Kluber

At the beginning of the 2015 MLB season, the hot topic in Cleveland was not the reigning Cy Young winner Corey Kluber. Instead, people were talking about how the Indians were going to be in the running for the Central division title. The offense in the preseason was supposed to have been better than anyone had seen in a while and the rotation was nothing short of greatness. This...

2007 Cleveland Indians: Where are they now?

If you were a Cleveland Indians fan in the mid-2000’s, then you remember 2007. The excitement. The thrill. The heartbreak. It was a wild and magical ride at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario, but they weren’t able to reach the ultimate goal. After winning the American League Central division crown by eight games with a record of 96-66, the Indians defeated the New York Yankees...
