Corey Kluber agrees to a one-year deal with the Rays

by

The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reports Corey Kluber has signed with the Rays, pending a physical. Joel Sherman of the New York Post adds that Kluber’s deal is a one-year $8 million contract, plus incentives. The two-time Cy Young Award winner spent the 2021 season with the Yankees but missed more than three months with a right shoulder strain. Kluber started 16 games for New York, picking up five wins and three losses. Last season, the 35-year-old pitched 80 innings, posting a 3.83 ERA, a 1.34 WHIP, a 2.5 strikeout-to-walk ratio, and recorded a no-hitter. Kluber has only played 24 games over the past three seasons and will turn 36 in April as he enters his 12th MLB season. Kluber will benefit from the Rays’ solid defense and pitcher-friendly Tropicana Field.
