CLEVELAND — With a 14-game lead in the American League Central http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-brandon-guyer-jersey , it will not be a high-stress September for the postseason-bound Cleveland Indians.But the Indians do have some priorities in the last month of the regular season. One of them involves their starting pitcher on Friday night when they host the Tampa Bay Rays in the first game of a three-game series at Progressive Field.That pitcher is Corey Kluber, whom the Indians would like to get on a roll going into the postseason. The two-time Cy Young Award winner has had an up and down second half of the season, which started at the All-Star break, during which he received an injection to deal with right knee inflammation.Article continues below ...Since getting that injection, Kluber has been better, but not to the level he consistently pitched to last year when he won his second Cy Young Award. In his last 13 starts, Kluber is 6-5 with a 4.05 ERA.That includes his last start this past Saturday against the Kansas City Royals, the lowest scoring team in the American League.Kluber lost that game 7-1, pitching 5 1/3 innings and allowing five runs and nine hits Erik Gonzalez Jersey , with six strikeouts and two walks.“He threw a couple fastballs that he didn’t locate real well, and they made him pay,” Indians manager Terry Francona said. “They jumped on him pretty good when he made mistakes.”One of Kluber’s nemesis this year has been the home run ball. With a month still left in the season, he has already given up 22 home runs, matching his career high. Left-handers have hit 13 of the 22 home runs Kluber has allowed, including one by lefty-swinging Lucas Duda in the Kansas City start.“I left a couple fastballs in the middle of the plate that they hit,” Kluber said of the start vs. the Royals. “Some pitches I felt like I executed them pretty well, but they put them in play and found some holes, so you tip your cap. It wasn’t perfect by any means. It was one of those days that I felt could have gone better http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-josh-tomlin-jersey , but it is what it is.”Kluber’s start Friday will be his first against Tampa Bay since Aug. 13, 2017, when he beat the Rays 11-3, pitching seven innings and allowing three runs and four hits, with nine strikeouts and two walks. In eight career starts against Tampa Bay, Kluber is 4-2 with a 2.44 ERA.Kluber’s mound opponent will be right-hander Tyler Glasnow, who will make his first career appearance against Cleveland. Glasnow is a combined 1-3 with a 4.18 ERA for Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh. He was part of the July 31 trade between the Rays and Pirates in which pitcher Chris Archer was traded to Pittsburgh.Glasnow has appeared in 39 games, five of them starts. He was 1-2 with a 4.34 ERA in 34 relief appearances with the Pirates, and he is 0-1 with a 3.80 ERA in five starts for Tampa Bay.In his last start for the Rays Carlos Carrasco Jersey , Glasnow received no decision in Tampa Bay’s 4-3 win over Kansas City on Aug. 23. He pitched five innings, giving up three runs and five hits, with eight strikeouts and three walks. Corey Kluber has piled up accolades during his eight seasons in the majors.The 32-year-old Alabama native has won two American League Cy Young awards. He has three All-Star selections. He helped guide the Cleveland Indians to the World Series in 2016, when he started Game 1 and earned the victory.But there is one thing Kluber has yet to do in his career: Put together a 20-win season.Article continues below ...Kluber (19-7, 2.93 ERA) can change that Monday night when the Indians visit the Chicago White Sox to open a three-game series at Guaranteed Rate Field. He already has set a career high with 19 wins and has a chance to become the Indians’ first 20-game winner since Cliff Lee went 22-3 in 2008.The last pitcher before Lee to win 20 games for the Tribe was Gaylord Perry in 1974.At 87-68, the Indians already have locked up their third consecutive AL Central title. They expect to face the Houston Astros in the AL Divisional Series while the Boston Red Sox will square off against the wild-card winner.But Kluber has no interest in taking a long break before the playoffs. The right-hander wants to produce at least one more quality outing in order to stay sharp for the postseason.“To me, it makes the most sense to still try to stay in that competitive frame of mind,” Kluber said recently to MLB.com. “I don’t want to go out there and feel like it’s spring training or something like that, just because we’ve already clinched. I think the best way to stay locked in is to kind of keep your foot on the gas Roy Oswalt Jersey , so to speak.”On the year, Kluber has 205 strikeouts in 203 innings. He is the first pitcher in team history to surpass 200 innings and 200 strikeouts in five straight seasons.“It’s just being able to stay healthy and make starts and log innings,” Kluber said. “Hopefully, that results in giving the team a chance to win. I’m not concerned with what specific statistics are. It’s just being able to be reliable and take the ball when it’s your turn.”Kluber is 12-4 with a 2.93 ERA in 23 games (22 starts) against Chicago. He has 173 strikeouts in 153 2/3 innings.The White Sox (61-94) need two victories in their final seven games to avoid a 100-loss campaign. They have endured only three 100-loss seasons in franchise history (1932, 1948 and 1970).Chicago manager Rick Renteria said he hoped that fans could stay patient during the team’s rebuilding effort.“We see it not only in the Cubs’ (successful rebuild), we’ve seen it with the Astros, the Indians, a multitude of clubs that have gone through that process,” Renteria said to the Chicago Tribune. “The Braves http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-carlos-lee-jersey , it took the Braves four years. It took the Astros four or five years.“It’s hard for me to explain to the fans other than my own belief that what we have coming is going to be something that is going to be very fruitful in the near future.”White Sox right-hander Dylan Covey (5-13, 5.33 ERA) will make his 20th start of the season. The 27-year-old faced the Indians on Wednesday night, tossing six scoreless innings while striking out five.Covey is 1-2 with a 4.82 ERA in seven career games (five starts) against the Indians.
