    Corey Kluber

    Has to be one of the most underrated SP this season. No one talks about his season and he was even snubbed from the ASG. He also pitched well over 147 innings last season and 2014 looked like a breakout season yet it seems everyone outside of Cleveland ignores the guy.

    He's awesome, I'd be willing to trade Zito for him but he's not on the team anymore.

    I was just coming in here to post a thread about him possibly being CY Young. If it wasn't for Felix's awesome season, Kluber should be winning it.

    I liked both him and Salazaar coming into the season but I thought Salazaar was going to be having this season not Kluber.

    He's having a phenomenal season. It's not even his peripherals either, his stats are just ridiculous in general. Already has another 10+ K game today.

    Beasting it

    Was he highly rated as a prospect? I thought I remember him being a C+/B- type guy, but I'm not sure.

    He came out of nowhere almost, 29th prospect of the Padres in 2007 then 26th for the Indians in 2010. Average at best stats in the minors, he kinda found his way in the minors in 2012(ranked 12th best prospect in the International League) and then what we saw last year with the Indians in the majors.

    Corey Kluber

    Had an argument about a month ago with a guy who said he was better than Bumgarner. I laughed at him but if he keeps this up...

    He started throwing a 2-seamer in 2012 and his career really took off from there. He's always had a great arsenal of pitches and gets above average swing and miss rates on everything he throws now. But his 4-seamer would get pounded.

    His out pitch is that nasty curveball though. It's one of the best in the majors now.
