Indians tab Kluber for 5th straight opening-day start

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) Corey Kluber will start on opening day for the Cleveland Indians for the fifth consecutive season, matching a franchise record.

The two-time AL Cy Young Award winner was given the nod Saturday by manager Terry Francona.

Stan Coveleski is the only other Cleveland pitcher to start five straight openers. Bob Feller holds the franchise mark with seven opening-day starts overall. Kluber is the first to earn five opening-day assignments with the Indians since CC Sabathia from 2003-08.
