CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - When Corey Kluber gets the start on opening day Monday in Houston, it will likely be the first of many more opening day starts as the ace has signed a contract extension according to multiple reports. 
The two sides reportedly coming to terms on a five-year deal, keeping the reigning Cy Young Award winner in Cleveland until 2021.  The deal includes two team options, which is a big leverage point for the ball club who already had him under control until 2018.  
Kluber went 18-9 with a 2.44 ERA for Cleveland last season, his first full year in the majors. He's scheduled to pitch Monday's season opener at Houston.  He will turn 29 on April 10.  

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah man got a surprise when he stopped to pull a large orange bag off the highway, fearing that it would become a traffic hazard.
The Deseret News reports (http://bit.ly/1BRXSdg ) the 75-pound bag tumbled out of a truck driving in front of Dan Kennedy on Interstate 80 on Tuesday. When he looked inside, he found stacks of cash.
"I thought it was going to be light. I reached down to grab it, and I couldn't move it," Kennedy said.
Approximately 4 feet tall and 2 feet wide, the sack was filled with smaller bags packed with currency including $50 and $100 bills. Kennedy estimated each of the small bags contained $22,000.
It was unclear Thursday how much money the entire bag contained.
Kennedy tried but failed to chase down the Brink's armored truck that had lost the bag. He then drove the money to his work parking lot and called the police.
The three Utah Highway Patrol troopers were "stunned" at the bag of money, Kennedy said.
"Never in all my years have I heard of a bag of money bouncing out of the back of an armored truck," said trooper Brady Zaugg. "That's something that happens in the spy movies."
Kennedy said it never occurred to him to do anything other than turn in the money.
"He hadn't disturbed it at all, so he obviously did the right thing for the right reason," said Zaugg, who said Kennedy reported his find to the police immediately.
