Cleveland Indians pitcher Corey Kluber will be out for a significant amount of time after he was hit by a line drive Wednesday night.
The Indians say preliminary X-rays indicate Kluber suffered a non-displaced fracture of his right ulna after being hit by a ball off the bat of Miami Marlins outfielder Brian Anderson in the bottom of the fifth.
Indians manager Terry Francona said that Kluber will be re-evaluated Thursday in Cleveland to confirm the diagnosis and assess a timetable for his return. The Indians said the fracture was non-displaced, meaning the bone was still properly aligned.
Kluber is the second Indians starter to suffer a significant injury this season. Mike Clevinger is out until at least mid-July with a back injury.
