CLEVELAND – With just a few days before the opening of the 2015 season, the Indians and Corey Kluber have agreed to a multi-year contract extension, the Indians confirmed on Sunday.

The deal is five years through 2019 with two option years in 2020 and 2021.

Kluber, 28, finished last season with 18 wins and a 2.44 ERA.

“This is an exciting day for our organization, Corey and his family,” said Cleveland Indians Executive Vice President and General Manager Chris Antonetti. “In his time with us, Corey has grown into a leader in our clubhouse and an exemplary teammate.  His tireless work ethic, consistent preparation and fierce competitiveness set an example for our younger players, and his presence on our team is a key reason that we are prepared to compete for a championship in 2015 and beyond.”

Kluber is scheduled to start for the Indians in their season opener in Houston on Monday.
