3. Corey Kluber
This pick doesn't take a rocket scientiest to figure out.
Corey Kluber was awful for the Red Sox this season. The former two-time AL Cy Young winner looked like anything but an award-winning pitcher in Boston, pitching to a 3-6 record with a 7.04 ERA across 15 games (9 starts).
The Red Sox now have Kluber's $11 million team option looming and I can't see a world where they pick it up. If the 37-year-old had at least hit the .500 win mark while playing to a 4.00 ERA or better, I'd be down to bring him back. But how can we expect a bounce-back showing when Kluber's last All-Star season was in 2018?
At this rate, it's clear that Kluber won't return to his Cy Young form. He'll likely need to accept that he's an end-of-the-rotation arm or work toward a bullpen role if he wants his MLB career to continue.
Regardless of what does happen to his career, don't count on it occurring in Beantown.
