Corey Kluber was enjoying a breakthrough season prior to landing on the disabled list earlier this month with a sprained right middle finger, but he could still make a big impact down the stretch.
Bobby Nightengale of MLB.com reports that Kluber threw all of his pitches during a bullpen session Friday and is scheduled to throw a simulated game Monday. The simulated game will essentially function as a rehab start, which means that he could rejoin the Indians’ rotation next weekend against the Mets.
Kluber, 27, owns an impressive 3.54 ERA and 116/26 K/BB ratio in 122 innings over 19 starts and two relief appearances this season.
