Ouch: Corey Kluber’s Forearm Fractured By a Comebacker

Chicago Cubs

Awful news for ace Corey Kluber and the Indians, as the righty took a line drive comebacker off his pitching arm last night … and it broke.

You could tell immediately by the way the ball just died straight down after impact, and the way Kluber reacted, that it was serious.

The immediate conversation is how the Indians will weather this blow, given the injuries they already have and the moves they didn’t make in the offseason.

Although it is only the first week of May, it’s possible the Indians will feel compelled to quickly make a (cost-effective?) move to supplement their rotation. It’s hard to imagine a guy coming back soon from a broken pitching forearm.

This will bear following.
