Indians taking slow approach with ace Corey Kluber

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) Don't pencil in Corey Kluber as the Cleveland Indians' opening day starter just yet.

Cleveland manager Terry Francona said Sunday the team will take a slow approach this spring with Kluber, a workhorse for the Indians a year ago. Kluber has started the opener the past two seasons, but Francona isn't ready to say if the right-hander will get the nod on April 3 when the AL champions play at Texas.

"We've told Kluber because we are slowing him down a little bit, if he's not ready for Game 1, we can adjust," Francona said. "And we're more than willing to, because there's a lot at stake over the course of the year. We all know opening day is a big deal, but we want him to position himself where he's ready to log as many innings as we need."
