According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, Kluber’s showcase on Wednesday left scouts “impressed,” and there is expected to be a strong market for the former Cleveland ace and two-time Cy Young winner.
Kluber has suffered a number of injuries over the last two seasons, including a fractured arm, an abdominal injury and more recently a strain in the back of his throwing shoulder.
The Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins have reportedly shown the most interest in the 34-year-old this offseason.
The Red Sox are looking to add some pitching depth after a disastrous 2020 campaign saw Chris Sale sidelined for Tommy John surgery. Eduardo Rodriguez also was ruled out with a heart issue after being diagnosed with COVID-19.
If the Twins add Kluber, he will join a rotation that includes Jose Berrios, Randy Dobnak, Kenta Maeda and Michael Pineda.
The right-hander owns a career 3.16 ERA and 1.086 WHIP.
