The Corey Kluber Showcase Was A Success, So Who Signs Him?

Former Cy Young winner Corey Kluber held a showcase this morning in Florida and reportedly “impressed”. According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, the 35-year-old right-hander showed what scouts from 25 different teams were looking for:

Velocity.

Interest is at an all-time high, but teams needed to see if Kluber would have his ‘A’ fastball. His velocity dropped each and every season since he won that Cy Young award, and that’s largely due to his workload.

Yankees

Outside of Gerrit Cole, who the Yankees signed last offseason to a nine-year, $324 million deal, they’re thin it that rotation. Unless they suddenly come to terms on extensions, they’re slated to lose James Paxton and Masahiro Tanaka out their starting rotation. When you lose your “two” and “three” starters to free agency, there’s clearly a team need.

Yankees fans will be furious if GM Brian Cashman doesn’t find a solution fast, so that’s why we may see more aggressiveness from the Bombers to get a deal done.

Red Sox

Boston’s rotation was god awful in 2020 and it doesn’t take a genius to understand why he’d be welcomed in Fenway. With left-hander Chris Sale expected to return at some point after Tommy John surgery last year, signing Kluber to a one-year deal could really be a shot in the arm to that rotation.

Twins

Yeah, Kluber heading back to the AL central is strange, but it makes sense. They’re expected to lose Jake Odorizzi, which makes replacing him a difficult task. Nothing like a short-term solution to a problem the Twins are expected to have until their prospects are ready to contribute.

Bottom line is that there’s a solid chance Corey Kluber is pitching a big game for a contender this October. Since big market contenders got involved, expect the price tag to be steep. Corey Kluber ain’t comin’ cheap.
