Corey Kluber reportedly finalizing a deal to join New York Yankees

ESPN's Jeff Passan reports the New York Yankees are finalizing a deal with free agent RHP Corey Kluber.

Fantasy Impact

No word yet on the financials. This is a big addition for the Yankees, whose rotation was a question mark entering this weekend. Kluber only pitched one inning during the shortened 2020 campaign, but apparently impressed at his recent bullpen session. He could be an interesting late-round flyer in 2021 fantasy drafts.

Corey Kluber expected to sign by this weekend

Buster Olney of ESPN reports the bidding on free agent RHP Corey Kluber is moving quickly.

Fantasy Impact

Olney adds that the bidding will likely reach a conclusion by this weekend. Kluber threw for teams on Wednesday and by all reports looked impressive. The 34-year-old was limited to just one inning last year but perhaps there's still more left in his tank.

Corey Kluber impresses 'nearly' 25 teams at throwing showcase

Corey Kluber held a pitching showcase for MLB scouts on Wednesday and "nearly" 25 teams came away "impressed," per Jeff Passan of ESPN.

Fantasy Impact

According to Passan, Kluber's fastball was clocked between 88-90 mph and he's got plenty of time to ramp up heading into spring training. He showcased his off-speed pitches as well. All in all, the former two-time AL Cy Young winner threw 30 pitches and should have a lot of clubs vying for his services.

Corey Kluber to throw for teams on January 13th in Florida

Free agent Corey Kluber will throw for teams in Florida on January 13th, per Jon Morosi of MLB Network. The veteran former Cy Young Award winner wants to showcase his stuff for any interested teams.

Fantasy Impact

Kluber has been bitten by the injury bug the last two seasons and threw just one inning before being shut down in 2020 with a shoulder injury. If he performs well during his January showcase there should be a number of teams willing to take a flyer on him. The Boston Red Sox have long been rumored to be interested in him.

Corey Kluber to throw for interested teams in January

Free agent RHP Corey Kluber is scheduled to throw for interested teams in early-January.

Fantasy Impact

Kluber has combined for just 36 2/3 innings over the past two years, so he obviously needs to show teams that he's healthy entering 2021. The 34-year-old has already been linked to his hometown Red Sox, though there will be other teams interested in taking a flyer on the former Cy Young winner if he pitches well during his showcase.
