Two-time Cy Young winner Corey Kluber breaks his pitching arm after being hit by 102mph liner – Fox News

Two-time Cy Young Award-winning pitcher Corey Kluber broke his right forearm, his pitching arm, Wednesday night after he was hit by a line drive.

The Cleveland Indians ace was struck by Miami Marlins’ Brian Anderson’s liner in the fifth inning. Despite being hit, Kluber ran to the ball and attempted to swipe it with his glove to first base. Anderson was called safe. The 33-year-old starting pitcher was then seen walking back to the mound in obvious pain.

According to Statcast, the ball had an exit velocity of 102.2 mph.

Indians manager Terry Francona told reporters after the game: “It looked ugly.’

Kluber will be re-evaluated in Cleveland when the team can determine how long the pitcher might be out. The Indians said the fracture was non-displaced, meaning the bone was still properly aligned.
