One pitcher enters the game with a bloated 5.23 ERA after two starts, having surrendered six runs in less than four innings of his work in his last start.
The other pitcher enters the game with a 0.66 ERA after two starts, having struck out 10 and surrendered only one run over 13.2 innings pitched so far.
In a normal world, Corey Kluber would be the latter. Unfortunately, he is the former... for now. We’ll see if the Detroit Tigers are the cure for what ails the Indians’ ace.
