Corey Kluber, who has won the AL Cy Young Award twice, will not be pitching for the Red Sox for the remainder of this season.
TORONTO — Two-time AL Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber has ended his minor league injury rehabilitation assignment and will not pitch again this season for the Boston Red Sox.
The right-handed pitcher, who is 37 years old, has been unable to play for Boston since June 20 due to inflammation in his right shoulder. His third rehabilitation start for Triple-Worcester, which was scheduled for Saturday, had to be postponed.
Instead, manager Alex Cora stated that Kluber will carry on with his rehabilitation at his residence.
On September 12th, Kluber took the mound for Worcester and delivered an impressive performance, giving up only two hits and striking out two batters in a span of 2 and 2/3 innings without allowing any runs.
During his time with the Red Sox, Kluber’s performance resulted in a record of 3 wins and 6 losses, accompanied by a 7.04 ERA across 15 games, out of which he started nine. In January, he entered into a one-year agreement with Boston worth $10 million, which also entails a club option for 2024 amounting to $11 million.
In 2021, Kluber had a record of 5 wins and 3 losses with a 3.83 ERA in 16 starts while playing for the New York Yankees. He achieved a no-hitter in a 2-0 win against Texas. The following year, in 2022, he joined Tampa Bay and had a record of 10 wins and 10 losses with a 4.34 ERA in 31 starts.
Kluber, who has been selected as an All-Star three times, achieved his initial Cy Young victory in 2014 while playing for Cleveland. During that season, he had a record of 18 wins and 9 losses, with an earned run average (ERA) of 2.44. He secured the award once more in 2017, concluding the season with a record of 18 wins and 4 losses, accompanied by a 2.25 ERA.
Kluber, a pitcher with 13 years of experience, has played for Texas as well. He has a record of 116 wins and 77 losses, with a 3.44 ERA, in a total of 271 games. Out of these games, he has started in all but 11 of them.
