28-year old lefty reliever Mark Rzepczynski has been a nice addition to the Indians’ bullpen since coming over in a deal with the Cardinals.  He has pitched in 18 games (0 starts) for the Indians so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 1.15 ERA and a 0.77 WHIP.  He has only given up 8 hits and 4 walks while whiffing 14 batters in his first 15 2/3 innings for the Indians so far this year, which are impressive numbers.  He has held lefty hitters to 8 for 47 (.170 avg, .418 OPS) with 3 doubles so far this year, which is impressive.  Rzepczynski has now pitched in 29 games (0 starts) overall this year for the Cardinals and Indians in which he is 0-0 with a 3.81 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.

29-year old righty starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez has gotten his groove back for the Tribe.  Since June 1st, Jimenez has pitched in 16 games (all starts) in which he is 6-6 with a 3.01 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP.  Jimenez has now pitched in 26 games (all starts) overall this year and he is 9-9 with a 3.95 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP.  He has given up 128 hits and 73 walks while whiffing 143 batters in his first 141 1/3 innings so far this year, so he is missing a lot of bats.  The Indians need Jimenez to finish the season strongly if they are going to make it to the playoffs in 2013.

29-year old lefty starting pitcher Scott Kazmir has been really sharp lately for the Indians.  In his last three starts, Kazmir is 1-0 with a 2.37 ERA and a 0.68 WHIP.  He has given up 12 hits and 1 walk while whiffing 14 batters in 19 innings in his last three starts, which is pretty impressive.  Kazmir has now pitched in 14 games (all starts) for the Indians overall this year and he is 4-4 with a 4.86 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP.  The Indians weren’t expecting much from Kazmir in 2013 when they signed him to a minor league deal over the winter, but he has been quite a pleasant surprise.

Corey Kluber has been outstanding as of late for the Cleveland Indians

27-year old righty starting pitcher Corey Kluber is getting hot for the Tribe lately.  In his last 4 starts, Kluber is 1-1 with a 2.38 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 11 games (9 starts) for the Indians so far this year and he is 4-4 with a 4.08 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP.  He has given up 58 hits in 57 1/3 innings so far this year, but he has limited the damage by walking only 12 batters while whiffing 57 of them so far this year.  The Indians need all of the rotation help that they can get right now, so they hope that Kluber keeps up the good work moving forward.
