A former Los Angeles Angels clubhouse attendant has accused a second New York Yankees pitcher of doctoring baseballs in violation of Major League rules, naming two-time Cy Young winner Corey Kluber in report on Monday after previously implicating Gerrit Cole in a defamation lawsuit.

BUFFALO — Gerrit Cole would rather not talk about what he puts on a baseball when he pitches. Brian “Bubba” Harkins has no such issue. As MLB’s crackdown on pitchers using foreign substances approaches and offensive numbers have already ticked up, the former Los Angeles Angels visiting clubhouse manager who was fired in 2020 for providing pitchers with a substance he made, told Sports Illustrated that some of the biggest names in baseball used his product.
Kluber (shoulder) recently began a throwing program and is playing catch from 60 feet, Justin Shackil of SiriusXM reports. The veteran right-hander was transferred to the 60-day injured list in early June and is now in the early stages of his throwing program. Kluber won't be eligible to be activated until late July, so he has plenty of time to ramp things up before being able to rejoin the rotation.

The Yankees seem set to cross their fingers and hope for the best with Corey Kluber. After the right-hander visited several top doctors about his strained right shoulder, Kluber and the Yankees have decided to see if he can pitch despite his injury.

NEW YORK -- When Yankees starter Corey Kluber hit the injured list with a sub-scapular strain in his right shoulder, the expectation was that he would be shut down for four weeks before being allowed to pick up a baseball again. But manager Aaron Boone said Thursday that there is...
The Yankees moved Kluber (shoulder) to the 60-day injured list Saturday. The move frees up a roster spot as Kluber, yet to begin a throwing program, still projects to return around late July. Infielder Chris Gittens was signed Saturday to fill Kluber's spot.
New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone offered some good news regarding starting pitcher and two-time American League Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber shortly before Thursday afternoon's home matchup against the Tampa Bay Rays. According to Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media for NJ.com, Boone said that Kluber could begin...
The New York Yankees gave us a medical update on Corey Kluber’s shoulder last week — which did not hurt, but felt heavy — and sent us on our merry way. Then they revealed that a dye contrast MRI was still coming, which portended doom. After all, those are typically the examinations that reveal fuller tears, and it was fair to wonder if we were wasting time Googling “subscapular strain” in the first place because in reality it was something more normal and worse.

NEW YORK — Corey Kluber played catch Friday, the first step to see if he will be able to get back on a mound. The veteran right-hander was shut down May 26 with what the team said was a strained scapula muscle in his right shoulder, but he sought opinions from two other doctors over the last week. While the Yankees didn’t update the diagnosis other than to say there has been a lot of wear and tear on his shoulder, the rehab plan is basically to see if he can slowly ramp back up to a point where he can pitch effectively.

The New York Yankees feared the worst when Corey Kluber, a veteran pitcher, had to leave his last start with right shoulder soreness. His diagnosis, a strained sub scapula muscle, meant he wouldn’t pitch for at least two months. The right-hander had been getting some additional testing done on his...
Kluber (shoulder) is expected to begin a throwing program soon, though his overall return timeline hasn't changed, James Wagner of The New York Times reports. Kluber was originally expected to be shut down from throwing for four weeks after being diagnosed with a shoulder strain in late May. While it now looks as though he'll be throwing within two weeks of being shut down, that evidently simply represents a change in how the Yankees intend to go about his rehab rather than a change in his overall timeline. He'll presumably be brought along very cautiously at the start of his throwing program, with a return date in late July still the most likely outcome.
