Yankees’ shortstop suddenly a monster

When the Yankees signed Corey Kluber this offseason, they knew it was a high-risk, high-reward move.

They saw the reward last Wednesday, when Kluber pitched a no-hitter in Texas.

The risk part showed up Tuesday, when Kluber left a 6-2 loss with right shoulder tightness after three innings.

The Yankees announced the 35-year-old would be tested further on Wednesday and he would get an MRI exam.

The injury is especially worrisome because Kluber pitched just one inning last season for the Rangers before being sidelined with a strained right shoulder.

His early exit was just part of an ugly night for the Yankees, who saw their six-game winning streak snapped, some shaky defense by Gleyber Torres and a lineup shut down by former Met Steven Matz.
