  • Latest On The Red Sox' Rotation

    The Red Sox’ rotation will likely be down several starters to begin the season, as’s Chris Cotillo writes that each of Garrett Whitlock, Brayan Bello and James Paxton are expected to begin the season on the injured list. Paxton had already been trending in this direction, but Whitlock and Bello now join him in…

  • Corey Kluber Named Opening Day Starter

    Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora said that right-hander Corey Kluber will be the team's Opening Day starter against the Baltimore Orioles on March 30. Cora said that he informed Kluber of the decision back in January. With left-hander Chris Sale (wrist) recovering from injuries that cut his season short once again in 2022, the BoSox will go with the 36-year-old Kluber to kick things off this year. Kluber has bounced around the league in recent seasons and isn't the same pitcher that made three straight All-Star appearances from 2016-18 with the Cleveland Guardians. The two-time Cy Young winner is now an injury risk for fantasy managers and had a below-average strikeout rate in 2022.

  • Corey Kluber Throws First Bullpen Session

    Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Corey Kluber threw his first bullpen session of spring training on Friday. The veteran right-hander made 31 starts for the Tampa Bay Rays last season and posted a 4.34 ERA in his first healthy season since 2018. "In that regard, just the mental side of knowing I'm still capable of doing that," Kluber, who turns 37 in April, said of coming off a healthy year. Still, there's plenty of injury risk with almost the entire Red Sox rotation, including Kluber, a two-time Cy Young winner. Kluber has always been good at limiting walks, but his strikeout rate tumbled in 2022 despite his overall solid campaign for his age. Fantasy managers should absolutely not be expecting a return to dominance, especially at Fenway Park.

  • Red Sox, Corey Kluber Agree On One-Year Deal

    The Boston Red Sox and free-agent right-hander Corey Kluber agreed to a one-year deal with a team option for the 2024 season on Wednesday, according to sources familiar with the agreement. The New York Post's Jon Heyman reports that the deal is for $10 million, with an $11 million option for 2024. The three-time All-Star and two-time Cy Young winner spent the 2022 season pitching for the Tampa Bay Rays, going 10-10 with a 4.34 ERA (3.57 FIP), 1.21 WHIP and 20.2 percent strikeout rate in 31 starts covering 164 innings pitched. The 36-year-old was respectable for the Rays last year, but injuries will be a concern for fantasy managers, as well as his decrease in strikeout rate and velocity. And staying in the tough American League East in a hitter's park won't be easy as he nears the end of his career.
