The Indians chose to play it safe and put Corey Kluber on the DL with lower back tightness that has bothered him and forced him out after three innings on Tuesday.
Kluber is off to the worst start of his career since being a full-time starter. He'll be replaced for the time being by righty Joe Colon.
