Corey Kluber took the loss Friday but only allowed two runs on eight hits and a walk with six strikeouts against the Tigers.
After starting off the season 6-3, Kluber has come crashing back to earth of late, having failed to register a win over his last four starts. He is still sitting on a 3.30 ERA and 1.26 WHIP through 103.2 innings, but has seen a drop off in strikeouts, having recorded just 19 over his last four trips to the mound (23.1 IP), which is far lower than the rate we have grown accustomed to seeing from Kluber. Whether or not his strikeout rate continues to fall, he should remain in starting lineups through all league formats until he proves otherwise. He will look to find his way back to the win column when he takes on the Diamondbacks next week.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
The Padres are actively shopping relief pitchers.
The Padres pushed left-handed reliever Alex Torres out of the door just a few days in return for minor league pitcher Cory Mazzoni. The report suggests that all relievers not named Benoit have been mounted firmly on the trade block and will be made available to the highest bidder. It makes sense, as they're currently on overload. Kevin Quackenbush, Shawn Kelley, Brandon Maurer, Nick Vincent and Dale Thayer would all be candidates for high-leverage jobs on different clubs. GM A.J. Preller's former organization, the Rangers, are in need of bullpen assistance. Analysis: Spencer Silva
Dwayne Bowe plans on revitalizing his career in Cleveland in 2015.
LOL. Literally. Bowe failed to reach 100 receiving yards in a single game last year and didn't catch a single touchdown pass. Alex Smith is no Peyton Manning, but he's significantly more capable than anyone who will be throwing the ball to Bowe in Cleveland. The Browns have brought in Josh McCown this offseason and obviously still have Johnny Manziel in tow. It wouldn't be all that surprising to see third-stringer Thad Lewis get some reps at some point. Maybe it's possible that Johnny Football is better than he looked last year and he can get a little something going with Bowe, but that seems like a long shot. Analysis: Brett Talley
