Rotoworld:

06.14... Indians placed RHP Shane Bieber on the 10-day injured list with a right shoulder strain.
Spin:
Well, that would help explain Bieber's dip in velocity and struggles
against the Mariners on Sunday. He will be shut down from throwing for
two weeks before being re-evaluated. Obviously, it's a massive blow to
the Indians and to Bieber's fantasy managers, although it's still not
clear how long he might be sidelined. Kyle Nelson has replaced Bieber on
the roster.

Alex Patton Alex

Pablo Lopez, Domingo German, Johnny Cueto, Martin Perez, Michael Pineda, Kris Bubic, Bieber... lots of pitchers with very good ERAs at the start of the day had much higher ERAs by the end of it.

Not quite so free with the sticky stuff?

A bit of a metaphor that, in the series of portraits below, Bauer is just a little bit off :-)

Checking CBS prices versus Peter's target price for 5x5 - Bieber stands out (CBS $48 vs Rotoman $36) ... 

I don't disagree with Peter's price.  Even he realizes that you'll need to bid more than the $31 his model suggests.  But just don't expect to get him at that, given the scarcity of top end starters in the AL and the reality that more teams are going to want to get one of them than there are available.

In first outing, Bieber and catcher Perez agreed he would not throw a curveball.

From Rotoworld:

Shane Bieber allowed four runs -- three earned -- over 1 2/3 innings in his Cactus League debut Monday versus the Royals.

This probably wasn't exactly how Bieber wanted to open Cactus League play, but then again it was a meaningless game on March 1. The reigning American League Cy Young Award winner is currently being selected as the third starter off the board in the average Yahoo draft, behind only Gerrit Cole and Jacob deGrom, after pitching to a 1.63 ERA and 122/21 K/BB ratio over 77 1/3 innings in 2020.

Bieber has tested positive for COVID-19, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Bieber reportedly experienced mild symptoms following his positive test and is a late arrival to camp as a result. However, president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti was hopeful that the right-hander will be able to join the team at spring training in the coming days.
