Corey Kluber looks to get back on track after a short 2019 season.

Corey Kluber feels ready to return to Major League action after an abrupt end to his previous season with the Indians. The two-time Cy Young winner has not pitched in a game since May 1 2019, when he suffered a fractured right forearm after getting hit with a line drive against the Marlins.

A strained oblique in August then put out any talks of a potential return.

“It definitely feels like it’s been an eternity since I’ve pitched in a meaningful game,” said Kluber. “I had some rehab starts last year, spring training games; I would say these last three (starts.) But it’s still not the same. So I’m definitely looking forward to getting out there when they really matter.”

Kluber went 2-3 with 5.80 ERA in seven games with the Indians last season. He will look to return to his 2018 all-star form, where he went 20-7 with a 2.89 ERA; while also striking out 222 batters in 215 innings. This season he’ll start fresh with the Rangers, after being sent over by the Indians in a December trade.
