Source: Tampa Bay Rays add veteran Corey Kluber to rotation on one-year deal

The Tampa Bay Rays and free-agent right-hander Corey Kluber have agreed to a one-year contract, a source confirmed to ESPN.

The deal is worth $8 million guaranteed and could be worth $13 million if he reaches incentives, the source said, confirming multiple reports.

Kluber, who turns 36 in April, was limited to 80 innings last season with the New York Yankees because of a shoulder strain that kept him out for more than three months. He went 5-3 with a 3.83 ERA in 16 starts for the Yankees and pitched a no-hitter in May, striking out nine batters in a 2-0 victory over the Texas Rangers.

Now that he's a Ray, I expect him to throw 158 innings with an ERA+ of 138 also adding in 5 relief appearance amongst those innings.

That Yankees rotation must be counting on a lot of bounceback years and healthy arms.

No Rays pitcher made it that far last year. Yarbrough led with 155.

And as they passed on Wacha, I am assuming he somehow manages to pitch -41.1 innings for the Red Sox with a sub 60 ERA+.
