Indians to exercise Kluber’s option, decline Kipnis

CLEVELAND (AP) The Indians wasted no time on one of their biggest offseason decisions: Bringing back Corey Kluber was a no-brainer.

Cleveland said it intends to exercise Kluber's $17.5 million contract option for next season, when the two-time Cy Young Award winner is expected to be healthy - and maybe rejuvenated - following an injury-shortened 2019.

Kluber made only seven starts before a line drive in Miami broke his right arm. The 33-year-old endured months of inactivity and rehab and was nearing a return when a strained oblique muscle set him back.
