The Indians will give Corey Kluber the starting nod for Game 1 of the World Series when Cleveland hosts the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday.

Kluber has gone 2-1 with an 0.98 ERA during the postseason, including two shutout wins.

The Indians will announce Tuesday whether Trevor Bauer or Josh Tomlin will start Wednesday’s Game 2. The other pitcher would then start Game 3 on Friday when the series goes to Chicago.

Bauer was forced to leave his start in Game 3 of the AL Championship Series against Toronto last week only four batters into the game with a bloody finger. Bauer had previously cut himself day while cleaning his drone.
