Corey Kluber is the ace the Yankees need

Corey Kluber is the difference maker and impact arm the Yankees need atop their rotation.  In 2017 and 2018, Yankee fans wished ace-like status on Luis Severino, but his inconsistencies have left him just short of owning the name.  Kluber, 32, has been the definition of consistent for the Cleveland Indians, winning 18+ games four out of the last five years and winning 20 games in 2018 for the first time in his career. Kluber has posted an ERA below 3.50 every season since 2014, and has struck out at least 220 hitters in the same span. Kluber keeps getting better, and is not showing any signs of regression. Kluber is an ace, the ace the Yankees need.

The 25-year-old slugger was often seen with large bags of ice over his left shoulder in late August in September following games, but he never let the media know that he was in pain. In his rookie season, Judge slashed .284/.422/.627 (1.049 OPS) with 52 bombs, 114 RBIs, and 24 doubles. With the timing of this surgery, Judge is expected to be fully recovered and ready for spring training in 2018.
