Aug. 13 5:52 PM PT6:52 PM MT7:52 PM CT8:52 PM ET20:52 ET0:52 GMT8:52 5:52 PM MST7:52 PM EST8:22 PM VEN4:52 UAE (+1)7:52 PM CT-Corey Kluber improved to 11-3, allowing three runs on four hits and two walks in 7.0 innings, as the Cleveland Indians defeated the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 on Sunday. Kluber struck out nine, ending the game with a 2.71 ERA and 0.91 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The Cleveland ace won his third straight start, though he did have a streak of five consecutive outings with 11 or more strikeouts end. With a 6-1 record, a 1.73 ERA and a whopping 123 strikeouts over his last 11 assignments, Kluber is a no-brainer fantasy start every time he takes the mound.
Aug. 8 8:07 PM PT9:07 PM MT10:07 PM CT11:07 PM ET23:07 ET3:07 GMT11:07 8:07 PM MST10:07 PM EST10:37 PM VEN7:07 UAE (+1)10:07 PM CT-Corey Kluber improved to 10-3, allowing one run on three hits in 9.0 innings, as the Cleveland Indians defeated the Colorado Rockies 4-1 on Tuesday. Kluber struck out 11, ending the game with a 2.65 ERA and 0.91 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: A four-run rally in the ninth made a winner of Kluber, who pitched his second straight complete game and continued his dominance since returning from the disabled list on June 1. He's 7-1 with a 1.70 ERA in 13 starts since then while striking out 142 over 95 1/3 innings. Kluber is just the third pitcher to strike out at least eight in 13 consecutive starts, joining Randy Johnson and Pedro Martinez.
Aug. 3 8:00 PM PT9:00 PM MT10:00 PM CT11:00 PM ET23:00 ET3:00 GMT11:00 8:00 PM MST10:00 PM EST10:30 PM VEN7:00 UAE (+1)10:00 PM CT-Kluber improved to 9-3, allowing one run on three hits and one walk in 9.0 innings, as the Cleveland Indians defeated the New York Yankees 5-1 on Thursday.

Analysis: This was Kluber's third complete game of the season.
July 29 8:30 PM PT9:30 PM MT10:30 PM CT11:30 PM ET23:30 ET3:30 GMT11:30 8:30 PM MST10:30 PM EST11:00 PM VEN7:30 UAE (+1)10:30 PM CT-Kluber allowed four runs on nine hits and one walk in 6.1 innings as the Cleveland Indians defeated the Chicago White Sox 5-4 on Saturday. Kluber struck out 12, ending the game with a 2.90 ERA and 0.99 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: He recorded at least 10 strikeouts for the 10th time this season and 34th time in his career. He has struck out at least eight in 11 consecutive starts for the longest streak in the majors since Pedro Martinez also did it for 11 straight in 2002.
July 23 2:50 PM PT3:50 PM MT4:50 PM CT5:50 PM ET17:50 ET21:50 GMT5:50 2:50 PM MST4:50 PM EST5:20 PM VEN1:50 UAE (+1)4:50 PM CT-Corey Kluber improved to 8-3, allowing one run on five hits and two walks in 7.2 innings, as the Cleveland Indians defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 8-1 on Sunday. Kluber struck out a season-high 14, ending the game with a 2.74 ERA and 0.96 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The 14 Ks were impressive even by Kluber's high standards, considering he's now recorded double-digit strikeouts in seven of his last eight starts. The 2014 AL Cy Young winner has fanned 90 while going 3-1 with a 1.37 ERA during that stretch, and he's yielded one earned or less in six of those assignments.

Kluber struck out 12, ending the game with a 2.86 ERA and 0.96 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Kluber was on his way to ending a two-start winless stretch before giving up a game-tying solo homer to rookie Matt Chapman in the eighth inning. The All-Star hurler still reached double-digit strikeouts for the sixth time in seven starts, a period in which he's fanned 76 batters while posting an excellent 1.40 ERA and limiting hitters to a .147 average.

Kluber struck out 12, ending the game with a 3.02 ERA and 1.00 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Kluber tied a franchise record held by Bob Feller with four consecutive games with double-digit strikeouts.

He makes his next start Wednesday against the Padres.

Kluber struck out 10, ending the game with a 4.36 ERA and 1.25 WHIP on the season.
