If you look at the fWAR pitching leader boards, you will probably be surprised to find Corey Kluber as the second name on there, nestled between Felix Hernandez and the 2.6-fWAR-duo of Stephen Strasburg and Yu Darvish. The 28-year-old righty currently sports a 10.38 K/9, 2.08 BB/9, 4.95 K/BB and owns the 7th-highest K% in the Majors and a top-30 BB%.

This may not go so well for the Royals.
