Cabrera returns with homer in Tigers' 5-2 win over Indians

09 May 2017

He has went at least six innings in all five starts, allowing no more than three runs.

Kluber is 3-2 with a 5.06 ERA.

Last night's victory was aided by a rough night from Corey Kluber, who allowed five runs before being pulled after the third inning for what was described as lower back discomfort.

It was Kluber's shortest outing since completing 2 2/3 innings against Houston last May 9.

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.

Tigers: RF J.D. Martinez has plateaued in his recovery from a sprained right foot, but Tigers manager Brad Ausmus didn't want to call it a setback.

Which Spurs will get a bump in DFS with Parker sidelined?
Backup Patty Mills will likely absorb between 5 and 10 of them, but he's a fundamentally different type of guard from Tony. While it might not feel as good in the end now, the Houston Rockets will have to use Parker's absence to benefit them.

Francona said that Kluber had an MRI on his back a while ago, but none of them revealed any problems that would have had him go on the DL. The extra rest may benefit the Tigers as they kick off a 10-day west coast trip in Oakland tomorrow, and we all know that the Tigers can struggle on the west coast.

"It's not just me, it's everyone in here", he said.

Braves 9, Mets 7 • Ender Inciarte drove in three runs with three hits, R.A. Dickey's floaters were more effective than Matt Harvey's fastballs for the second time in a week and host Atlanta beat NY. The pitch was inside, several inches off the plate.

There's still plenty of time for the Indians to shift the momentum in the season series. That's a stark contrast to last season, when the Indians went 14-4 in the season series.

"He threw a good pitch", Cabrera said. "We have great trainers in here and they take care of everything".

Detroit left-hander Matt Boyd (2-1, 3.86 ERA) is glad to have Cabrera back in his usual No. 3 spot in the batting order, even though fill-in John Hicks batted.423 in his place.
