Corey Kluber pitched one inning in 2020 before needing shoulder surgery, and the Yankees gave him a one-year, $11 million contract knowing he missed nearly all of 2019 and 2020. Kluber had looked like his former Cy Young-winning self over his previous five starts, but on Tuesday, he couldn’t control his pitches and left the game early with shoulder tightness. Given Kluber’s recent shoulder history and the way the Yankees have diagnosed, treated and handled injuries, I don’t have a good feeling about his return.
After the recap, Cam Lewis of Blue Jays Nation joined me to talk about the Blue Jays, their recent six-game losing streak, getting beat up by the Rays, their need for two starting pitchers and Vladimir Guerrero Jr.’s breakout season.
