Corey Kluber Is Prospect Going To Indians In Ludwick/Westbrook Trade

Tom Krasovic gives us the name of one prospect going from San Diego to Cleveland in the Ryan Ludwick/Jake Westbrook three-way:

#Padres minor league RHP Corey Kluber goes to #Indians

Kluber is a 24 year old righty starter who's spent the year in the AA San Antonio rotation, where he's posted a 3.45 ERA and 3.4 K/BB over 122.2 innings. He comes with a fastball in the low 90s and a slider that makes him successful against righties, but as is the case with so many middle-tier minor league starters, Kluber's changeup remains a work in progress, and without it he's looking at a future in the bullpen. He has, however, greatly improved his stock in 2010, and has a legitimate shot at a big league career.
