Report: Ken Rosenthal says Corey Kluber is A Lock to Win Cy Young Award

During Wednesday evening, Ken Rosenthal reported that Cleveland Indians ace, Corey Kluber is a lock to win the Cy Young Award for the second time in his career.

Kluber last won the Cy Young Award in 2014.

Kluber and Red Sox ace, Chris Sale have been in the discussion for becoming the American League Cy Young winner for some time now.

Kluber started off the 2017 season with a 3-1 April, had a 4.19 ERA, struck out 37 through 34.1 innings pitched.

In the month of May, Kluber only made one start which lasted 3 innings and gave up 5 earned runs. Kluber missed most of May with an injury but came back in June.

June: 4-0, 1.26 ERA, 64 strikeouts, and logged 43 innings pitched.

July: 1-1, 2.62 ERA, 56 strikeouts in 34.1 innings.

August: 5-1, 1.96 ERA, struck out 54 in 46 innings.

So far in September Kluber is 4-0, 0.87 ERA, 37 strikeouts through 31 innings pitched.

Kluber has been dominant since coming back from injury and is the 11th Cleveland Indians pitcher to have 250 strikeouts or more in a season.

Kluber reached that mark in 2014 also when he struck out 269 when he won the Cy Young Award.

As mentioned above, Kluber can be in the discussion for being the American League Most Valuable Player also.
