RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Kluber showed better control (3.5 BB/9) and an uptick in his strikeout rate (9.2 K/9) at Triple-A Columbus and earned a midseason promotion to the Indians. He struggled with the long ball in his time with the Indians and does not have the nasty power stuff you might expect from someone his size (6-foot-4, 215 pounds). He will compete for a rotation spot this spring despite some pretty ugly numbers (5.14 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, 1.3 HR/9 in 12 starts) unless the Indians are able to upgrade their rotation options this winter.

2012

Kluber struggled in his first full season at Triple-A (5.56 ERA, 1.480 WHIP, 8.5 K/9IP in 27 starts) despite a nice strikeout rate. The 6-foot-4 righty doesn't have the power arsenal you might expect from his size, and that figures to limit the success he might have if the Indians move him into a relief role. He'll start the season again at Triple-A Columbus, but it doesn't appear that a breakout season is coming any time soon.

2011

Kluber struggled a bit at Double-A Akron after coming over to the Indians from the Padres midseason, but he pitched well enough in the Texas League to warrant some attention. He's always posted nice strikeout totals in his minor league career, but Kluber might get lost in what has become a pretty deep Indians farm system. He was added to the team's 40-man roster this winter, so apparently he did enough to get noticed by the front office and figures to spend most of the year making the jump to Triple-A.
