• The Indians were dealt a big blow to their rotation on Wednesday night, as ace Corey Kluber suffered a non-displaced fracture of his right ulna after being hit in the elbow following a line drive. The 33-year-old right-handed will be re-evaluated today to confirm the diagnosis and determine a timetable.

CC Sabathia struck out Diamondbacks catcher John Ryan Murphy in the second inning of Tuesday night’s interleague matchup, becoming just the 17th pitcher in major-league history to join the 3,000-strikeout club. 14 of the 16 pitchers to record 3,000 or more strikeouts are already in the Hall of Fame — and Roger Clemens and Curt Schilling may both end up getting in despite significant off-the-field controversies that have delayed their respective inductions. So while voters seem to be less influenced by “magic numbers” than they’ve ever been before, the fact that Sabathia joined such an exclusive club on Tuesday night certainly doesn’t hurt his chances of being immortalized in Cooperstown sometime next decade.
