Corey Kluber's dominance continued as he allowed just one run on five hits and two walks with 10 strikeouts over 7.2 innings against the Orioles on Friday.
Kluber continued his great season in 2014 as he has now allowed two runs or less in nine of his last 10 starts while striking logging double-digit strikeouts in five of those contests. He is sitting 13-6 with a 2.41 ERA and 1.07 WHIP through 26 starts while owning a ridiculous 197:38 K:BB rate over 179.1 innings. Kluber has done everything in his power to solidify himself as a staff ace and unless he has a major fall off the next few week, he will be a contender for this year's Cy Young Award in the Amerindian League. He will look to get back in the win column went he takes on the Twins in his next start. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Teams have begun to eye Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller.
What a shock. Suddenly teams are interested in a 24-year old who is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA and 43:16 K:BB over 54.0 innings. Never saw that coming. The Braves did a nice job not only acquiring Miller, but also in developing him more. His use of a new cutter is increasing his ground ball rate and he is inducing a lot more weak contact. As a result, strikeouts are up, walks are down and Miller looks like a tremendous asset.Expect teams to make pitches for Miller, but don't expect the Braves to bite. Analysis: Howard Bender
