Name: Corey Scott Kluber
Born: April 10, 1986
Corey Kluber was born in Birmingham, Alabama on April 10, 1986. He is the son of Ellen and Jim Kluber.
Corey studied at Coppell High School and attended Stetson University.
He is presently married to Amanda, and the couple has three children: Kamden, Kendall and Kennedy.
Corey has been involved in baseball since he was a kid, and he developed into an ace from his first day in high school. Despite starting off as a relief pitcher with a 7.82 earned run average and a 2-2 record, he proceeded to improve his style of pitching. By 2007, he garnered a 2.05 ERA, 117 strikeouts and a 12-2 record and a Pitch of the Year award in the Atlantic Sun Conference.
In 2007, Corey was drafted by the San Diego Padres and was sent to the minor league system, compiling an 18-24 record. He was eventually traded to the Cleveland Indians as part of a three-team deal. In 2014, he won the American League Cy Young award, and continued his success in the culminating years, setting career highs, being named to the American League All-Star team in 2016 and becoming a finalist in the AL Cy Young voting.
By the end of the 2017 MLB season, he put together an 18-4 record with a 2.25 ERA. He is the favorite to win the Cy Young award, despite a dismal performance in the 2017 postseason against the New York Yankees in the American League Division Series (ALDS).
Overall, Corey has a career 76-48 record, 3.13 ERA and 1,201 strikeouts.
We estimate that Corey Kluber’s net worth is $12 million (2017).
So how much is $12 million really?
$12 million can pay for about one-third of Corey Kluber’s five-year contract with the Cleveland Indians. $12 million can also pay for front-row season tickets to every Cleveland Indians game for the next several seasons.
