Corey Kluber has piled up accolades during his eight seasons in the majors.The 32-year-old Alabama native has won two American League Cy Young awards. He has three All-Star selections. He helped guide the Cleveland Indians to the World Series in 2016 http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-patrick-corbin-jersey , when he started Game 1 and earned the victory.But there is one thing Kluber has yet to do in his career: Put together a 20-win season.Article continues below ...Kluber (19-7, 2.93 ERA) can change that Monday night when the Indians visit the Chicago White Sox to open a three-game series at Guaranteed Rate Field. He already has set a career high with 19 wins and has a chance to become the Indians’ first 20-game winner since Cliff Lee went 22-3 in 2008.The last pitcher before Lee to win 20 games for the Tribe was Gaylord Perry in 1974.At 87-68, the Indians already have locked up their third consecutive AL Central title. They expect to face the Houston Astros in the AL Divisional Series while the Boston Red Sox will square off against the wild-card winner.But Kluber has no interest in taking a long break before the playoffs. The right-hander wants to produce at least one more quality outing in order to stay sharp for the postseason.“To me, it makes the most sense to still try to stay in that competitive frame of mind,” Kluber said recently to MLB.com. “I don’t want to go out there and feel like it’s spring training or something like that, just because we’ve already clinched. I think the best way to stay locked in is to kind of keep your foot on the gas, so to speak.”On the year, Kluber has 205 strikeouts in 203 innings. He is the first pitcher in team history to surpass 200 innings and 200 strikeouts in five straight seasons.“It’s just being able to stay healthy and make starts and log innings,” Kluber said. “Hopefully, that results in giving the team a chance to win. I’m not concerned with what specific statistics are. It’s just being able to be reliable and take the ball when it’s your turn.”Kluber is 12-4 with a 2.93 ERA in 23 games (22 starts) against Chicago. He has 173 strikeouts in 153 2/3 innings.The White Sox (61-94) need two victories in their final seven games to avoid a 100-loss campaign. They have endured only three 100-loss seasons in franchise history (1932, 1948 and 1970).Chicago manager Rick Renteria said he hoped that fans could stay patient during the team’s rebuilding effort.“We see it not only in the Cubs’ (successful rebuild) Randy Johnson Jersey , we’ve seen it with the Astros, the Indians, a multitude of clubs that have gone through that process,” Renteria said to the Chicago Tribune. “The Braves, it took the Braves four years. It took the Astros four or five years.“It’s hard for me to explain to the fans other than my own belief that what we have coming is going to be something that is going to be very fruitful in the near future.”White Sox right-hander Dylan Covey (5-13, 5.33 ERA) will make his 20th start of the season. The 27-year-old faced the Indians on Wednesday night, tossing six scoreless innings while striking out five.Covey is 1-2 with a 4.82 ERA in seven career games (five starts) against the Indians. MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Joe Mauer is retiring after 15 major league seasons, six All-Star games, three Gold Glove awards, three batting titles and 2,123 career hits http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-a.-j.-pollock-jersey , all with his hometown Minnesota Twins.“Thank you, Minnesota Twins, and thank you, fans, for making my career as special and memorable as it was,” Mauer wrote in a full-page ad that will run Sunday in the Minneapolis Star Tribune and St. Paul Pioneer Press. “Because of you I can leave the game I love with a full and grateful heart.”Mauer’s eight-year, $184 million contract expired the day after the World Series ended, creating a natural parting from the game he grew up with in St. Paul, less than 10 miles from the downtown Minneapolis ballparks he called home with the Twins.“The decision came down to my health and my family,” Mauer wrote. “The risk of a concussion is always there, and I was reminded of that this season when I missed 30 games as a result of diving for a foul ball. That’s all it took this time around and it was all I need to bring me back to the struggles I faced in 2013.”The first overall pick in the 2001 draft out of Cretin-Derham Hall High School Yasmany Tomas Jersey , the same program that produced Hall of Famer Paul Molitor, Mauer made his debut at the Metrodome on April 5, 2004, two weeks before his 21st birthday. He signed his megadeal three weeks before the Twins began playing at Target Field.Mauer acknowledged down the stretch this season he wasn’t sure yet whether he was interested in continuing to play, with twin 5-year-old daughters at home and a third child on the way for him and his wife, Maddie. Then came the final game of the season on Sept. 30, when he doubled in his last at-bat and donned his catcher’s gear to symbolically take one more pitch in the top of the ninth inning as he tearfully waved to the adorning crowd. Not many players could experience a farewell more poignant than that.What made the moment so emotional was the fact that Mauer hadn’t been behind the plate since Aug. 19, 2013, when a foul tip banged off his mask and triggered a concussion that forced him to move to first base“The concussion I experienced that season not only changed my life professionally with a move to first base, but changed me personally as well,” Mauer wrote.While his athleticism — he had a scholarship waiting for him to play quarterback at Florida State and was a sharpshooting guard on the basketball team in high school — allowed for a relatively smooth transition on defense http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-shelby-miller-jersey , the effects of the head injury robbed him of his prowess at the plate for most of the next three years.As a catcher, easily the game’s most demanding and dangerous position, Mauer’s offensive ability was Hall of Fame-worthy. In 2006, he became the first catcher to lead the league in batting average since 1942. He did so again in 2008 and in 2009, when he hit .365 with a .444 on-base percentage and a .587 slugging percentage to top the AL in all three categories and win the MVP award. In Mauer’s last 10 games as a catcher before the concussion in 2013, he went 17 for 43 with three doubles, three homers and nine RBIs.Staying healthy became a challenge, however, and his popularity lessened some in a state usually fiercely proud of homegrown players due to the size of his contract and the amount of his absences.A knee injury limited his rookie season to 35 games, and a strained left quadriceps had him on the disabled list for more than a month in 2007. Back trouble sidelined him for all of April in 2009, when Mauer still managed to hit 28 home runs Chris Owings Jersey , by far his career high. In 2011, soreness and weakness in both of his legs kept him out for more than two months.Moving to first base allowed him to play more often, but between 2014 and 2016 his cumulative average was just .267 and the three highest strikeout totals of his career came in each of those seasons.His renaissance came in 2017 as the Twins went from 59-103 to 85-77 and a spot in the AL wild card game, batting .305 with 36 doubles, the second-highest total of his career. That made it easy to see Mauer playing beyond 2018, but in the end he opted to walk away with a .306 batting average and a place in the top five on the team’s career lists in a clear majority of offensive categories. Mauer is their all-time leader in doubles and times on base and second in hits behind Kirby Puckett.
