BC-BBA--Indians-Kluber Hurt,2nd Ld-Writethru
MIAMI (AP) — Cleveland Indians right-hander Corey Kluber is in a cast after he broke his right forearm against the Miami Marlins.
Kluber was hit by a line drive off the bat of Brian Anderson in the fifth inning Wednesday, and after a brief visit with a trainer, the Indians’ ace left the game.
The Indians said the fracture was non-displaced, meaning the bone was still properly aligned. Kluber will be re-evaluated in Cleveland on Thursday, and the Indians will have a better idea at that point of how long he might be out.
They’re already without starter Mike Clevinger, who is sidelined until at least June with a back injury.
Cleveland lost 4-2. Kluber, a two-time American League Cy Young Award winner, has struggled this season and is 2-3 with a 5.80 ERA.
