Corey Kluber allowed just one run (unearned) on two hits and no walks while striking out 10 batters over ninth innings against the Royals on Thursday.
Kluber held up his end of the deal on Thursday, but got o run support from his offense, resulting in a no-decision. He is now 10-6 with a 2.77 ERA and 1.13 WHIP through 22 starts while maintaining an impressive 162:33 K:BB rate through 149.1 innings. The Indians still have a shot at making a playoff push, and a lot of the credit should be given the Kluber's great season as he remains one of the best pitchers to own in the American League. He will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Mariners his next time on the mound. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Meyers Leonard will start for injured Noah Vonleh on Monday.
He offensively plays like a stretch four, providing plenty of space for the Blazers guards to operate, however on defense Leonard is rather stout considering his inconsistent playing time. With Vonleh out, Leonard will be expected to play more often, while providing the Blazers with some much-needed size in the frontcourt. Because of his above-average three-point shooting for his size, Leonard might be worth a look in very deep leagues, or for daily players who are strapped on a very tight budget on Monday night.
