Ace Kluber, who is in the era of “Cy Young Award 2+No Hit No Run,” announces his retirement from active duty… The second act of his baseball career will begin

“Cory Kluber, who played 13 seasons in the big leagues, is retiring,” , the official major league media, said on the 10th (Korea Standard Time). Kluber, who won two Cy Young Awards, announced his retirement on Instagram. He expressed his gratitude to everyone who helped him during his long journey in the baseball world in a five-word long post. “He left the possibility that he could remain in the baseball world in a different way.”

Kluber recorded 116 wins, 77 losses and an ERA of 3.44 in 271 games (1,641 ⅔ innings) in his 13th Major League season (2011-2023). Since his debut in the big league in 2011, Kluber has won the American League Cy Young Award in 2014 by playing in 34 games (235 ⅔ innings) with 18 wins, nine losses and an ERA of 2.44. Since then, he has played as a leading ace in the league, and in 2017 he won the second Cy Young Award in 29 games (203 ⅔ innings) with 18 wins, four losses and an ERA of 2.25.

However, Kluber started to decline after he was named the third All-Star in his career in 2018. Although he seemed to rebound by achieving his first no-hitter since his debut with the Yankees in 2021, he had a disappointing season with 31 wins and 10 losses and an ERA of 4.34 in 31 games (164 innings) with Tampa Bay in 2022 and only garnered three wins and six losses with an ERA of 7.04 in 15 games (55 innings) with the Boston Red Sox last year.

Kluber said, “I’m leaving the pitcher’s mound now. But my passion for baseball still lingers. I can’t wait to find opportunities to continue contributing to the world with other abilities. To everyone who will be with me in the next chapter of my baseball career, I’m looking forward to delivering what I’ve learned to the next generation of MLB players.” He talked about his feelings about retiring from active duty and what he wants to do in the future. said, “Klubber is now in a position to share and help the players who will follow him into the big leagues. He knows what it feels like to win a major league title with a 2.25 ERA in 2017. He knows what it’s like to fight an injury. As a pitcher, he knows what it’s like to get the MVP vote. He’s known for five years that he makes it into the top three in all Cy Young Award voting. He knows what it feels like to throw a no-hitter,” adding that he expected Klubber to become the leader in the big leagues.

“Kluber can be an excellent coach just by passing on his experience,” said , which commented, “He helped Shane Bieber, a young pitcher at the time, only a few years ago. Bieber made his Major League debut in 2018, and at the time, he was a veteran pitcher on the team.”

Bieber had a rather modest performance in 20 games (114 ⅔ innings) with 11 wins and 5 losses and an ERA of 4.55, but he began to show full potential in 2019 and won the American League Cy Young Award in 2020 with 8 wins and 1 loss with an ERA of 1.63 in 12 games (77 ⅓ innings). He has a career record of 60 wins and 32 losses with an ERA of 3.27 in 134 games (831 innings), and Kluber played with Cleveland in 2018 and 2019.

Bieber thanked Kluber in 2021, saying, “I was lucky to meet all the coaching staff here in 2018. I tried to have as many conversations as I could. And I tried to learn everything I could. But Kluber in particular was like the standard model of where I wanted to go and what kind of starting pitcher I wanted to be.”
