Indians pitcher Kluber struck by line drive, fractures arm
The Cleveland Indians likely just lost another starting pitcher for a while as Corey Kluber suffered an injury.
Kluber suffered a non-displaced fracture of his right ulna in Cleveland's 4-2 loss to the Miami Marlins on Wednesday.
He will be re-evaluated in Cleveland on Thursday.
Kluber suffered the injury when he took a line drive off his arm on a shot by Marlins third baseman Brian Anderson.

Anderson spoke about the play after the game.
"It's tough. It's never what you want to see," he said, via MLB.com. "I don't even know what to say. It's sad to hear ... it's baseball."
Kluber will likely go on the injured list joining fellow Indians starter Mike Clevinger, who is on the 60-day IL with a back injury.
Cleveland are in second place in the American League Central with a 16-13 record. They are two games back of the Minnesota Twins, who defeated the Houston Astros 6-2 on Wednesday.
