Corey Kluber does well in first bullpen session since injury | Cleveland.com

Kluber, the scheduled starter for Game 2 of the ALDS, threw a successful bullpen on Sunday. The right-hander strained his right quadriceps muscle last Monday in a start against Detroit. From Zach Meisel:

Kluber, who will follow Trevor Bauer (12-8, 4.26) in the Tribe's three-man ALDS rotation, is scheduled to throw another bullpen session Tuesday at Progressive Field.

"He looked good. He threw about 15 to 20 pitches and felt good to go," said pitching coach Mickey Callaway.

"Tuesday he'll throw more of an extended bullpen (session)," said Callaway. "It will be more like a normal pen that you'd do during the season. It will be about 35 to 40 pitches. Then he'll get a couple of days and pitch."

From beginning the year int the bullpen to locked-in Game 1 ALDS starter, it’s been a heck of a ride for Bauer.
