Indians ace Corey Kluber yet to throw off a mound

Indians ace Corey Kluber still does not have a timetable for a return from a strained lower back.

Kluber left his start on May 2 against the Detroit Tigers with a stiff back, something that he had been dealing with for most of the season. He had pitched through the discomfort up to that point, when it finally forced his exit from a game and warranted his placement on the 10-day disabled list.

Kluber has been working with trainers and a therapist in Cleveland.

Hes progressed to where hes throwing off flat ground for the last few days and land-based running, say moderate intensity, so hes making some really good strides, Indians manager Terry Francona said. I think the good news is, for him to do that, hes starting to get better, which were really happy about. When he gets to a point where hes ready to throw off a mound, thats when well have a much better timetable on when he can potentially pitch.
