CLEVELAND– The Cleveland Indians officially exercised the 2020 club option on two-time Cy Young winner Corey Kluber, the team said in a news release on Friday.
The Tribe made the announcement in early October that it would pick up the pitcher’s $17.5 million option.
Kluber missed most of the season with a broken forearm and a strained oblique.
The club also declined the option on second baseman Jason Kipnis and pitcher Dan Otero. The Indians have not ruled out bringing back either player at a reduced rate.
