Corey Kluber Red Sox deal

Two-time Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber has agreed to a one-year, $10 million contract with the Red Sox, a source told MLB.com insider Mark Feinsand. The team has not confirmed the deal, which has a club option for $11 million and was originally reported by ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

After signing a one-year, $8 million deal with the Rays last offseason, Kluber tossed 164 innings over 31 starts and finished 2022 with a 4.34 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP.

The veteran had thrown just 116 2/3 innings in the previous three seasons combined due to several major injuries, including a fractured right forearm in 2019, a torn teres major muscle in his right shoulder in 2020 and a right shoulder strain in 2021.

Kluber was one of the top pitchers in the game with Cleveland from 2014-18, winning two American League Cy Young Awards and recording a 2.85 ERA with 1,228 K’s over 1,091 1/3 innings.

He pitched for the Rangers in 2020 (1 IP) and the Yankees in 2021 (80 IP) before joining Tampa Bay, his fourth team in as many years.
