Shane Bieber joins Indians for Start vs White Sox
Shane Bieber returned from absenteeism for more than three months on Friday as the Cleveland Indians continue their five-game streak with the Chicago White Sox.
Beaver (7-4, 3.28 ERA), who won the American League’s Cy Young Award, made his last appearance in a major league game on June 13. He left the mound that day with tense muscles in the rotator cuff of the pitcher’s shoulder.
The 26-year-old right-hander was optimistic after starting a 57-length Double A Akron rehab on Sunday and having a paddock session two days later.
According to Cleveland.com, Mr. Beaver said, “It’s good to feel better again.”
Indian interim manager Demarlo Hale is confident to send the beaver to the mound on Friday.
âWe’re definitely going to make him count a shot count,â Hale said. âWhile it’s not yet established, the shift from minor league to big league rehab won’t be that big. I don’t think it’s going to be a 20 to 25 length jump. 15. Firsts 3-4. Let’s see how the game unfolds in the innings. “
Beaver is 2.05 with a 3-0 ERA in three starts this season with the White Sox. Overall, he’s a 2.66 ERA and 5-2 in 11 career games with Chicago, and his ERA is capped at 0.217.
The White Sox (86-67) entered Cloud Nine on Thursday after winning a 7-2 doubles program opener against the Indians and winning the first Central American League title since 2008.
âEverything for me is a fantastic island,â Chicago manager Tony La Russa said. âWe’re back like this. We all know the truth. The first three jobs, the club was in trouble when I took over. The manager is because the team is ready to win. I am not in this situation. I am very lucky. “
Tim Anderson recorded his sixth career multihomer performance and went deep to lead the game, adding a three-point explosion under two of six points. Anderson is 0.361 (35-97) with 6 homers and 17 RBIs in the last 21 games.
Luis Robert started his second solo homerun to extend his career best consecutive hits to 12 games before adding an RBI single later in the same inning. Robert hit a fierce 0.440 (22-50) with eight more hits (six doubles, two homers) and 14 RBIs over the streak.
The Indians (75-77) saved the division with a 5-3 nightcap victory, thanks to a farewell from Oscar Mercado, a two-run homer.
Right-hander Dylan Cease (12-7, 4.09 ERA) is trying to keep Cleveland on Friday in much the same way the Rangers did on September 17. 8-0 victory over Texas.
Case, 25, was less successful in his only meeting with the Indians this season. He was hit by 6 points with 8 hits in the 31/3 of the 6-5 backhand on June 1. He’s 1-2 at 7.27ERA in four career meetings with Cleveland.
