2021 FANTASY BASEBALL STATUS REPORT: COREY KLUBER PASSES FIRST TEST

 With just one single inning logged a year ago which followed an injury-ruined 2019, expectations were on the floor for former two-time Cy Young Award winning pitcher Corey Kluber.  The former 220-K ace had one of the best five season run of performance prior to the injuries which netted the two Cy Youngs but Kluber was only able to garner a one year deal from the New York Yankees worth $11 million for 2021.  The hope according to Yanks GM Brian Cashman was that Kluber could find health again at the age of 34 but he also admitted the signing was somewhat of a lottery ticket.  Well so far so good as Kluber was excellent on Wednesday as he tossed two perfect innings that included three strikeouts.  While we are still far from the season starting, Kluber is trending upwards in terms of his stuff and outlook for 2021 fantasy baseball.  After missing so much time, Kluber's arm is undoubtedly fresh and his fastball humming the way it did Wednesday was a great sign.  Now the piper will need to be called sometime in July for Kluber if he does stay healthy as the innings piling up after so much missed time will start to eat away at his ERA and WHIP but four good months of production for a very cheap draft cost are looking better by the day.
