  • Red Sox's Corey Kluber: Back from paternity leave

    Kluber was activated Friday from the paternity list, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    Kluber has returned to the Red Sox and is likely to get a start in one half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays. He was moved to the bullpen last week but did not make a relief appearance prior to being excused from the team. It's a little uncertain what the season-long plan will be for the veteran right-hander, though his fantasy appeal figures to remain quite low no matter his role.

  • Red Sox's Corey Kluber: Goes on paternity leave

    The Red Sox placed Kluber on the paternity list Tuesday, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.

    Kluber and his family just welcomed a new baby, so he'll be away from the club for up to three days. Ryan Sherriff was called up from Triple-A Worcester to take Kluber's spot in the bullpen.

  • Red Sox's Corey Kluber: Moving to bullpen

    Kluber has been moved to the bullpen, Red Sox manager Alex Cora confirmed Wednesday in a radio interview with "Gresh and Fauria" on WEEI 93.7, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

    Cora had said earlier this week that Kluber would make his next start, but the skipper has apparently changed his mind. Kluber has been dreadful after inking a one-year, $10 million contract over the offseason, putting up a 6.26 ERA and 34:18 K:BB across 41.2 innings covering nine starts. That, combined with Tanner Houck's strong showing his last time out, is the impetus behind Kluber's demotion. The 37-year-old wouldn't seem to be a great fit for relief and figures to be relegated to a mop-up role.

  • Red Sox's Corey Kluber: Will make next start

    Boston manager Alex Cora said Kluber will make his next start Sunday in Arizona, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Kluber lasted just 2.1 innings in a loss to the Padres on Sunday and walked three batters during a four-run first inning. With Garrett Whitlock (elbow) expected to be activated from the 15-day injured list to start this coming Saturday, Boston's rotation will increase to six men. Kluber had been off the radar when it came to potential rotation removals the last few weeks, but it's becoming hard for the Red Sox to continue to hand him starts while he's sporting a 6.26 ERA and 18 walks over 41.2 innings this season.

  • Red Sox's Corey Kluber: Chased early in loss

    Kluber (2-6) yielded five runs (one earned) over 2.1 innings and took the loss against the Padres on Sunday. He allowed three hits and three walks while striking out one batter.

    The Padres jumped all over Kluber in the first inning, plating four runs. He was later charged with one more run in the third after he was removed from the game. Just one of the runs allowed was earned, meaning Kluber dropped his ERA from 6.41 to 6.26. On the bright side, this was his first start all year without giving up a home run. Kluber's next start is currently lined up to be in Arizona.

  • Red Sox's Corey Kluber: Tagged with four runs

    Kluber (2-5) allowed four runs on seven hits and three walks over five innings Sunday, striking out five and taking a loss against the Cardinals.

    Most of the damage against Kluber on Sunday came via the long ball, including Andrew Knizner's two-run shot in the fourth inning. Kluber was 2-0 in his last three starts after beginning the year 0-4 but found his way back to the loss column. His ERA rose to an ugly 6.41 with a 33:15 K:BB through eight starts. Kluber's next start is currently projected to be in San Diego.

  • Red Sox's Corey Kluber: Nabs second win

    Kluber (2-4) earned the win over Philadelphia on Saturday, allowing three runs on seven hits while striking out one batter over five innings.

    Kluber was far from dominant in the outing, as he induced just nine swinging strikes and punched out only one batter. However, he didn't issue any walks and kept the Phillies away from big innings, allowing a single run in each of the second, fourth and fifth frames. Kluber needed 91 pitches to get through five innings, but that was enough for him to pick up his second victory. He began the campaign with four straight losses, but he's improved with two wins over his past three starts, allowing a tolerable seven earned runs over 16.1 frames during that stretch.

  • Red Sox's Corey Kluber: Strikes out seven in no-decision

    Kluber did not factor into the decision Monday, allowing three runs on five hits and four walks over 5.1 innings during a 6-5 loss to the Blue Jays. He struck out seven.

    Kluber was spotted a 2-0 lead after the first, but he quickly coughed up the advantage by giving up a three-run home run to Bo Bichette in the second. However, that was the only blemish on the right-hander's ledger, as he was pulled at 104 pitches with one out in the sixth. Monday's performance was a mixed bag for Kluber, who tied season highs with four walks and seven strikeouts, and his overall numbers (6.44 ERA and 1.40 WHIP) continue to look bleak despite a couple of solid outings. He'll look to find his footing during his next start, which is tentatively scheduled to take place during a three-game weekend set versus St. Louis.

  • Red Sox's Corey Kluber: Stifles O's for first win

    Kluber (1-4) picked up the win Tuesday, allowing one run on five hits over six innings in an 8-6 victory over the Orioles. He struck out three without walking a batter.

    After a tough beginning to his tenure with the Red Sox, Kluber rebounded to record his first win and first quality start of 2023. The veteran right-hander's dominance is long gone -- he managed only five swinging strikes on 80 pitches -- but he was able to hit his spots Tuesday, and only a Jorge Mateo solo shot in the fifth inning marred his performance. Kluber will take a 6.75 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 20:8 K:BB through 24 innings into his next outing, likely to come early next week at home against the Blue Jays.

  • Red Sox's Corey Kluber: Takes fourth straight loss

    Kluber (0-4) took the loss Wednesday, allowing seven runs on six hits and two walks over five innings in a 10-4 loss to the Twins. He struck out four.

    Kluber is off to a rough start this year, posting an 8.50 ERA across four losing starts. The former Cleveland ace still has plenty of time to regain his elite form from previous years, but fantasy managers cannot bank on him as a reliable option yet in 2023. The 37-year-old is tentatively slated to face the Orioles in his next start.

  • Red Sox's Corey Kluber: Allows four runs in loss

    Kluber (0-3) allowed five runs on four hits and a walk over 4.2 innings in Thursday's 9-3 loss to the Rays. He struck out seven.

    Kluber allowed a leadoff home run to Yandy Diaz in the first inning. He then settled down to retire 11 of the next 12 batters. However, he stumbled in the fifth, allowing three runs after a Harold Ramirez double to lead off the inning. The veteran right-hander falls to 0-3 to start the season with a 6.92 ERA through 13 innings. Kluber tentatively lines up to make his next turn through the rotation early next week against the Twins.

  • Red Sox's Corey Kluber: Takes tough loss Wednesday

    Kluber (0-2) took the loss Wednesday as the Red Sox were downed 4-1 by the Pirates, allowing one run on three hits and a walk over five innings while striking out two.

    The veteran right-hander didn't pitch poorly, tossing 44 of 67 pitches for strikes before exiting, but Kluber left the game with the Red Sox down 1-0 and they never found a tying run. While his Cy Young days are behind him, Kluber could still be able to provide the Red Sox with solid outings. He'll take a 6.48 ERA and 6:5 K:BB through 8.1 innings into his next start, and while he potentially lines up for a two-step next week, the return of Garrett Whitlock (hip) could shuffle the team's rotation and provide Kluber with an extra day of rest instead.

  • Red Sox's Corey Kluber: Handed loss in short start

    Kluber (0-1) earned the loss Thursday against the Orioles, giving up five earned runs off of six hits and four walks while striking out four batters through 3.1 innings.

    Kluber had a solid spring and made comments about how much his command had improved during camp, though that all seemed to go out the window Thursday against Baltimore. The 36-year-old veteran put up a 4.34 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with the Rays last season, and it didn't take long to feel the effects of pitching in hitter-friendly Fenway Park.

  • Red Sox's Corey Kluber: Works five innings

    Kluber allowed one run on four hits and one walk while striking out six over five innings in Wednesday's spring start against the Rays.

    On the day Kluber was named Boston's Opening Day starter, the right-hander authored the best of his four Grapefruit League outings. The 36-year-old commented on the progression he's made since the first outing, noting his ability to command pitches and throw them for strikes, per CJ Haddad of Kluber has allowed three runs on 13 hits and five walks while striking out 14 over 12.2 spring innings.
