Bieber allowed one run on six hits with eight strikeouts and one walk across 7.2 innings in a no-decision against the Mariners on Friday.
Indians manager Terry Francona allowed Bieber to face the first two batters in the seventh, but even though he retired both, he left the game for matchup reasons. Bieber was also at 114 pitches when he exited. The 23-year-old has settled for no-decisions or taken losses in his last three outings, but he is still 2-1 with a 3.16 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 42 strikeouts in 37 innings this season. He will be looking for his third win in his next start Wednesday against the White Sox at home.
Bieber (2-1) was charged with seven runs (five earned) on five hits over 2.1 innings in a loss to the Braves on Sunday. He struck out three and walked one.
Josh Donaldson accounted for most of the damage against Bieber, taking the right-hander deep in the first and second innings. Manager Terry Francona wouldn't let Bieber work out of trouble in the third, pulling him after only 65 pitches. It was a step backward, but Bieber was a top-15 starting pitcher in terms of earned 2019 value before this outing. He will look to get back on track next weekend in Houston.
Bieber (2-0) allowed one run on four hits with five strikeouts and three walks across six-plus innings in a victory against the Mariners on Tuesday.
The Mariners reached base in every inning against Bieber except the first. In two of the frames, Seattle had baserunners because of errors, but Bieber worked around nearly all the traffic, allowing just one run, and the Indians bullpen stranded the runner he left aboard in the seventh. He has been stellar this season, as Bieber has yet to allow more than two runs in any of his four appearances. He is 2-0 with a 1.71 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 22 strikeouts in 21 innings. His next scheduled start is at home against the Marlins on Tuesday.
Bieber (1-0) allowed three hits while walking one and striking out six across seven scoreless innings to earn the win Thursday against the Tigers.
Bieber dominated the Tigers, not allowing a hit until the fourth inning and holding them without an extra-base hit for the entirety of his outing. He also racked up 13 swinging strikes on 105 pitches and now has 17 strikeouts through 15 innings of work this season. His ratios are also strong, as he's maintained a 1.80 ERA and 0.67 WHIP through three starts.
Bieber didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 3-2 win over the Blue Jays, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks over six innings while striking out nine.
It was an impressive first start of 2019 for the right-hander, even if it did come against a Toronto offense that's made most of the pitchers it's faced so far look good. Bieber was a popular sleeper pick this preseason, and his 11:2 K:BB through eight innings won't dampen the hype. He'll next take the mound Thursday in another potentially juicy matchup, on the road against the Tigers.
