Corey Kluber

Corey Kluber getting a little love from Fangraphs's Carson Cistulli due to these two quality curve balls from his last start against Boston last week:

Apparently he ranks second among right handed starters in horizontal movement on his curve. His xFIP (park adjusted FIP) is ninth among starters with at least 20 innings (small sample size alert) and his K/BB ratio is 10th among that same group of 158 starters.

I think Kluber's sample sizes this season are still a bit too small to be significant, but he is growing up as a pitcher into a viable 4th/5th starter.
