The Cleveland Indians today announced the club has recalled RHP COREY KLUBER from the AAA Columbus Clippers.
Kluber, 25, has spent most of the season at AAA Columbus where he went 7-11 with a 5.56 ERA (150.2IP, 153H, 101R/93ER, 70BB, 143K, .263 avg) in 27 regular season starts. He finished the regular season tied for 3rd in the International League in strikeouts with 143. On the year he went at least 5.0IP in 22 of 27 AAA starts. This will mark Kluber’s 2nd stint with the Indians as he was recalled on September 1 and made his Major League debut that day against the Oakland Athletics in Progressive Field tossing 1.1 scoreless innings (2H, BB, 2K) in his only appearance with the Indians this year before being optioned back to AAA Columbus on September 3. He was acquired from San Diego last July 31 in a three-team trade that sent RHP Jake Westbrook to the St. Louis Cardinals. He wears #34.
The Indians Major League roster now consists of 35 players with 3 players on the Disabled List.
It's been a rough start of the season for the University of Akron Football team.
The Zips have started the season with three consecutive losses, to Ohio State, Temple and Cincinnati. They have been outscored in those games 142 to 17.
Akron hopes that playing at InfoCision Stadium will turn the trick. 4 of the next 5 games will be played at home. On Saturday, Akron will play VMI, Virginia Military Institute, at 2 o'clock on 'Parents Weekend'.
Zips head coach Rob Ianello says despite the 0-3 record, there are some positives that need to be pointed out.
One is running back Jawon Chisolm, who is averaging nearly 75 yards a game on the ground. A second positive is wide receiver Keith Sconiers, who has caught 11 passes in three games. Chisolm had over 100 yards rushing in the 59-14 loss to Cincinnati. Sconiers had over 100 receiving yards in the Cincinnati game.
Ianello says these are two building blocks that the program can build around.
Plus, Ianello says Clayton Moore is making progress as the starting quarterback.
There's much more to High School Football than practice during the week and games on the weekends.
There's work off the field as well.
For example, the Revere High School Football team. 10 members of the Minutemen football team will be volunteering their time at tonight's 'Taste of the NFL' at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton. The event is a fund-raiser for the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.
Revere head coach Phil Hein says his football players will be paired with 10 members of the Hall of Fame who will be at the event.
Hein says besides helping the Hall of Famers with their tasks tonight, he hopes his players will have a chance to talk to players like Jack Youngblood, Leroy Kelly, Jim Taylor and others.
Hein says he hopes the event will help his players grow, not only on the football field, but in life.

The Indians Major League roster now consists of 34 players with 3 players on the Disabled List.
Walsh Jesuit’s Boys soccer team beat Woodridge and Mother Nature Monday afternoon, scoring an 8-0 win in a match played in a steady downpour at Walsh Jesuit High School.
The Warriors put three goals on the scoreboard in the first half and followed it up with five more in the second half. Walsh improves their record to 4-5 on the season. Woodridge falls to 1-3-1.
Rain changes a soccer match, much like it changes the game of football. The ball is heavy and passing has to be more direct. Walsh was able to make the adjustment to the weather conditions. The Bulldogs had their problems.
Walsh head coach John Kissner says he was able to learn a lot about his team during the game. “The key thing was to get a workout, no injuries and it gets us ready for out next two games, Wednesday against Hoban (A North Coast League Game) and Saturday night against St. Vincent-St. Mary.
Junior Midfielder Ian Horning had the first Walsh Jesuit goal. Freshman midfielder Brian Hughes and midfielder Dan Centa scored the next two goals to give the Warriors a 3-0 lead.
In the second half, Centa added a second goal. Sophomore forward Jordon Marich and freshman forward Mike Parianos each scored a pair of goals.
Kissner said “We worked on our team play tonight and on clearing up our weaknesses.”
The Warriors lost six senior starters from last year’s team. One of the freshmen seeing playing time is freshmen midfielder P.J. Renz, who had two assists in the game. Renz said he enjoyed playing in the rain. “You get to slide tackle and stuff. It was a good win for us. It was our first shutout of the year.”
With five freshmen and four sophomores on the varsity team, the reloading process at Walsh Jesuit is underway.

The Cleveland Browns were able to correct the mistakes from the first game of the regular season and defeat the Colts 27-19 this past Sunday.
Those changes from Week Number One to Week Number Two impressed Browns head coach Pat Shurmur.
“I feel like this team responds when we ask them to clean up mistakes and refocus their efforts," said Shurmur. "I feel like they did that and so we’ll see if we can do it. Again, I’ve mentioned this about consistency, if we see somebody do something once, in order to be consistent you have to do it over and over. The way to respond this week is to be able to put the good feeling of winning behind you and then work on the preparation that needs to get done moving forward.”
Shurmer said he's been pleased with the way his team has responded to his philosophy.
“I was sure they bounced back and play well because I have seen them respond to everything we’ve asked them to do," said Shurmur. " I think that’s what made me sure. Well they made me right. I am happy they did that. I am happy.”
Rain played a major factor on Monday as The University of Akron women’s golf team concluded day one of the Wild Eggs Cardinal Cup in an eighth-place tie at the par-72, 6,253-yard Cardinal Club Course.
Wet conditions slowed play all day, delaying the start to the first round and washing out the day’s planned second round. The tournament has been shortened from 54 to 36 holes, with the final round set to begin Tuesday morning.
The Zips carded a round of 23-over 311 while tournament-leader North Carolina State posted a score of 296 (+8). Akron is just six shots out of the top three (305).
Senior Kristen Hill led the way for the Zips, closing out the rain-soaked round in a tie for ninth place after carding a round of 3-over 75. Freshman Sara Johansson ended the day in a tie for 30th place thanks to a round of 78 (+6).
Seniors Katie Jenior and Amanda Butler are in a group that posted rounds of 79 (+7) and are tied for 39th place. Sophomore Sara Chaves rounded out the scoring five tied for 58th place with a score of 9-over 81.
Sophomore Whitney Graff, playing as an individual, is tied for 71st place with a score of 83 (+11).
The shortened tournament will conclude on Tuesday morning with a shotgun start to the final round.

The season is winding down for the Cleveland Indians. Only a dozen games remain for the Tribe, who has a record of 75 wins and 75 losses and are in second place in the American League Central Division.
So, what does the 2012 version of the Cleveland Indians look like? Indians Senior Vice-President of Public Relations Bobby DiBiasio says without adding a player, the payroll for the team will jump about $20 million next year. Why? As younger players move up the ladder, they get paid more money.
On the pitching staff, Ubaldo Jimenez will be with the Tribe for the 2012 and 2013 seasons. Justin Masterson, Fausto Carmona and a healthy Josh Tomlin will be back with the Tribe. Other possible building blocks on the pitching staff include David Huff and Jeanmar Gomez.
The Indians will open the 2012 season at Progressive Field on Thursday April 5th against the Toronto Blue Jays.
The State Highway Patrol investigating an early Saturday morning one vehicle crash that sent five teenagers to the hospital. Police say the crash occurred on Pittsburg Avenue, south of Applegrove Street in Plain Township.
Authorities say a car driven by 18-year old Kyle Byelene of Canton was northbound on Pittsburgh when he passed a vehicle on the right of a two-lane road. The car continued off the right side of the road, striking a mailbox and eventually struck a utility pole.
Byelene was taken to Aultman Hospital with serious injuries. His front seat passenger, 18-year old Seth Noble of North Canton was taken to Mercy Hospital with serious injuries.
Back seat passengers, 16-year old Brandon Miller of North Canton and 15-year old Tyler Maloy of Uniontown were taken to Aultman Hospital with minor injuries. Another back seat passenger, 15-year old Kristi Morris of North Canton, suffered serious injuries and was taken to Aultman Hospital.
The State Patrol says alcohol appears to be a factor in the crash.
