#CyKluber countdown: Tribe offense goes wild, Kluber stellar again for win No. 4

may14kluber

(Editor’s Note: Leading up to the Nov. 12 announcement of the AL Cy Young Award, we’ll count down Corey Kluber’s 18 wins with a post per day recapping his victories.)

Date/score: May 14, 15-4

Opponent: Toronto Blue Jays

Pitching line: 7 IP, 2 ER, 9 SO, 1 BB

Record: 4-3

2014 strikeout total: 66

Key at-bat(s): Before the Tribe’s offense went crazy in the late going, Kluber had a 4-1 lead in the sixth — yet a Melky Cabrera single and Jose Bautista double cut that lead to 4-2. Kluber, though, buckled down to get Edwin Encarnacion and Adam Lind to end the threat.

Notable: The Tribe offense scored nine runs with Kluber in the game, which was a slight anomaly – Kluber’s run support in his losses and no-decisions was fewer than 1.5 runs per game.

Game score (avg. Game Score, developed by sabermetrician Bill James, is 49-50): 69

Highlights:

Core values: Tribe’s young stars under control through at least 2017

CI_080314-250.CR2

With the World Series nearing an end – and what a series it’s been – baseball’s offseason will move into high gear, beginning with the postseason awards the week of Nov. 10. Those include MVP, where Michael Brantley should finish in the top 3, and Cy Young, where Corey Kluber should have a good chance at winning.

Before the offseason begins, it’s prudent to take a look at exactly where the Tribe’s roster stands – especially since it’s in a good place: 16 players are under Indians control through at least 2016, with the team’s top young players – Michael Brantley, Yan Gomes, Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco and more – under control even longer.

Here’s a look at the current Indians roster and the number of seasons through which individual players are scheduled to be under club control. Certainly this can change over the course of an offseason – for instance contract extensions to Michael Brantley, Yan Gomes and Jason Kipnis last year.

Under club control through at least 2019

  • Jason Kipnis
  • Yan Gomes
  • Danny Salazar

Under club control through at least 2018

  • Cody Allen
  • Corey Kluber
  • Zach McAllister
  • Nick Hagadone

Under club control through at least 2017

  • Michael Brantley
  • Bryan Shaw
  • Lonnie Chisenhall
  • Carlos Carrasco

Under club control through at least 2016

  • Nick Swisher
  • Michael Bourn
  • Carlos Santana
  • Marc Rzepczynski
  • Josh Tomlin

Additionally, a group of young Tribe players who impacted the big-league club are under control for even longer; they’re just into their Major League service time clock, so the club controls their rights even past 2019. That group includes:

  • Jesus Aguilar
  • Kyle Crockett
  • Tyler Holt
  • TJ House
  • CC Lee
  • Roberto Perez
  • Jose Ramirez
  • Zach Walters
