457 feet is a long way.

Another good sign: Corey Kluber on the mend |

Rehab action could be coming soon. From Paul Hoynes:

Kluber threw 55 pitches in three innings in a simulated game Saturday at Progressive Field. He faced hitters from Class A Lake County.

“He felt great,” said pitching coach Mickey Callaway. “He threw all of his pitches, he stayed between 18 to 20 pitches an inning. It was very encouraging.”

Josh Tomlin gets start against rival Reds |

Fingers are crossed already.
