Corey Kluber, one of the Boston Red Sox‘s signings for the upcoming season, has a long-standing reputation of being a baseball gentleman, a professional in all the sense of the word.
Not everybody can play for the Cleveland Guardians, the New York Yankees, the Tampa Bay Rays, and the Red Sox and still enjoy the love and respect of fans of all those franchises.
Those are all American League contenders and have been for the better part of the last decade.
Yet everybody respects Kluber because of the way he approaches the game, like a pro: you won’t find him badmouthing a team or a fanbase.
The 36-year-old veteran is, however, enjoying his still brief time as a member of the Red Sox.
He has updated his Twitter account to include the team on his profile.

His profile picture shows him with a Red Sox hat and the letters “K-L-U-B-E-R”, but with the same art and graphic identity as the franchise that now employs him.
It actually looks very, very cool.
Kluber finally pitched something close to a full workload last season with the Rays.
He logged 164 innings and posted a 4.34 ERA that may not look so sexy, but when you compare it to his 3.57 Fielding Independent Pitching, or FIP, you know he was much better than his ERA.
A former two-time Cy Young award winner with plenty of postseason experience, Kluber is still looking for that first World Series ring.
The Red Sox are not really favored to win it all this year, but stranger things have happened in baseball.NEXT: Red Sox Fan Predicts Big Things For 2023
