Red-hot Clevinger, Indians host Royals

CLEVELAND -- Indians ace Corey Kluber is getting closer to coming off the disabled list, but his replacement in the rotation has filled in admirably.

Friday night, Mike Clevinger will make his fourth start in place of Kluber as Cleveland hosts the Kansas City Royals in the first contest of a three-game series. Clevinger was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on May 7 after Kluber was placed on the DL with a lower back strain.

In three starts filling in for Kluber, Clevinger is 2-1 with a 1.59 ERA. He has held opposing teams to a .113 batting average. In 17 innings, he has allowed three runs on six hits with 18 strikeouts. His only negative stat is 11 walks, but even that number is diminished in importance by Clevinger's low hit total.
