The Mets and 24 other teams watched Kluber hold his showcase. Kluber has just pitched 36.2 innings over the last two seasons. Before those 2 seasons, he pitched over 200 innings per year from 2014-2018.
Over that span Kluber was one of the best pitchers in the game, winning 2 AL CY Young awards. Kluber threw 30 pitches, hitting between 88-90 on the gun. He threw all of his off-speed pitches in the showcase. Scouts believe that he will add some more velo coming closer to Spring Training.
A strong market is expected for Kluber, as the upside is clear for the former CY Young winner. If healthy, he could be a very strong arm for the Mets rotation.
