The Indians Starting Rotation is on Fire, Is it Enough to Get Them to the World Series?

5. Shane Bieber

The Tribe rookie has had an impressive start to his career, going 6-2 with a 4.37 ERA, and in his last three starts has allowed five runs in 16.1 innings.

He went through a lull where he scuffled in two starts before that, but appears to be back on track and will get more shots in the final six weeks to build on his already solid numbers.

While it’s not set in stone by any means, it looks like he’s going to be the long man out of the pen in the postseason, or possibly an emergency fill-in should something happen to one of the starters, which has happened in the past.

Bieber might be last year’s version of Clevinger, a pitcher who has done enough to earn a start in the playoffs, but with the starer log jam might not have a chance until next season.
