He allowed three hits in eight innings, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 2-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox.
Analysis: Kluber won the AL Cy Young Award last season with an 18-9 record and a 2.44 ERA. The right-hander battled consistency issues and a hamstring injury this season, finishing 9-16 with a 3.49 ERA. "Obviously the win-loss record isn't what you'd like for it to be," Kluber said.

Analysis: Last year's AL Cy Young winner, Kluber did some infield work on Tuesday.

Kluber's return is a big boost for the Indians, who have won 13 of 18 to get back to .500 and are battling for one of the AL's wild-card spots.
