Corey Kluber: Uncertain on 2024 return
Kluber (shoulder) didn't commit to pitching in 2024 when asked about his plans Friday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Kluber missed the entire second half of the season due to shoulder inflammation, and he only posted a 7.04 ERA and 1.64 WHIP across 55 innings when healthy -- a far cry from his career 3.44 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. Given Kluber's health, recent performance and the fact he'll turn 38 in April, it's worth wondering if the two-time AL Cy Young Award winner will decide to hang up his cleats.... See More ...

Red Sox's Corey Kluber: Shut down for season
Kluber (shoulder) feels healthy but will not pitch again this season, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.
Kluber has been throwing off a big-league mound since late June due to shoulder inflammation, but he'd been working his way back, making a pair of rehab appearances for Triple-A Worcester over the last week. With the Red Sox falling out of the playoff race, they won't ask the 37-year-old righty to put more miles on his arm in what have become essentially meaningless games. The fact that Kluber at least made it back for some rehab games bodes well for his readiness for the start of next season, though his 7.04 ERA in 55 innings this season means his opportunities may be limited....

Red Sox's Corey Kluber: Goes three innings, grabs save
Kluber picked up the save in Tuesday's 10-4 victory over the Twins. He allowed four runs on five hits and one walk while striking out two over three innings.
Kluber has served as a long reliever for the Red Sox since moving to the bullpen in late May and picked up a save in his first opportunity despite giving up four runs. The bullpen experiment has garnered mixed results for Boston, with Kluber giving up one or fewer runs in four of his seven relief appearances, but he's allowed a combined 13 runs in the other three. Regardless, it's unlikely Kluber will receive many high-leverage looks unless he turns things around in a major way. Tuesday's workload (48 pitches) means he will not be considered for a start Thursday when Tanner Houck's (face) turn is next due.... See More ... See Less

Red Sox's Corey Kluber: Back from paternity leave
Kluber was activated Friday from the paternity list, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

He was moved to the bullpen last week but did not make a relief appearance prior to being excused from the team. It's a little uncertain what the season-long plan will be for the veteran right-hander, though his fantasy appeal figures to remain quite low no matter his role.... See More ... See Less

Red Sox's Corey Kluber: Moving to bullpen
Kluber has been moved to the bullpen, Red Sox manager Alex Cora confirmed Wednesday in a radio interview with "Gresh and Fauria" on WEEI 93.7, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Cora had said earlier this week that Kluber would make his next start, but the skipper has apparently changed his mind. Kluber has been dreadful after inking a one-year, $10 million contract over the offseason, putting up a 6.26 ERA and 34:18 K:BB across 41.2 innings covering nine starts. That, combined with Tanner Houck's strong showing his last time out, is the impetus behind Kluber's demotion. The 37-year-old wouldn't seem to be a great fit for relief and figures to be relegated to a mop-up role.... See More ... See Less
