UPDATES & NEWS
Corey Kluber improved to 12-6 after giving up just one run on six hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over 7.1 innings against the Reds on Monday.
While his two-start, 18-inning scoreless streak came to an end, Kluber has now thrown four-straight quality starts and earned a win in six of his last seven outings. Even more impressive is his 35:3 K:BB over his last 34 innings (four starts). The preseason hype on Kluber has proven to be right all year and those owners who chose Danny Salazar over him are still kicking themselves. Kluber will look to keep the momentum rolling with his next start this week which comes against the Yankees.ANALYST: Howard Bender
The Indians recalled Danny Salazar from Triple-A Columbus Saturday.
The expected move was announced Thursday after the Tribe felt they needed to push Carlos Carrasco (head/jaw) back to Monday. Salazar was dominant in his one Triple-A start, and as Fantasy Alarm's Brad Costilo noted earlier in the week, Salazar was very solid in his final 12 starts [of 2014], limiting opposing hitters to a .255 average/.668 OPS while striking out 1/4 of the batters he faced.
