Corey Kluber hasn’t walked a batter in over a month
Indians starter Corey Kluber once again pitched well, limiting the Tigers to two runs on five hits with no walks and eight strikeouts over eight innings during Sunday afternoon’s 9-2 win. The right-hander extended his walkless streak to six consecutive starts. Kluber last issued a walk to Domingo Santana leading off the bottom of the fourth inning on May 8.

According to ESPN Stats & Info, Kluber has faced 168 consecutive batters without issuing a walk, which is the third-longest streak of its kind over the last five years. Bartolo Colon had a streak of 204 batters without issuing a walk in 2015 with the Mets and Phil Hughes went through 178 batters in 2014 with the Twins.

Kluber, the defending AL Cy Young Award winner, has the second-lowest ERA in the AL at 1.99, behind Justin Verlander‘s 1.45. He’s also 10-2 with a 103/10 K/BB ratio in 99 2/3 innings.

Maybe the cubs can inject some of his DNA into Chatwood.

Kluber to me seems destined to win the AL Cy Young now. He has been pretty lights out in the 2nd half. If Sale had not gotten shelved with 2 stints on the DL for shoulder inflammation he would have been the clear favorite.

Chatwood has been a literal scrub all season long, did not like the signing then and absolutely hate it now. Can't really DFA his scrubass until after next season. I at least hope he becomes serviceable.
