Cleveland Indians ace Shane Bieber slowed by COVID-19, not but at coaching camp


CLEVELAND – Cleveland Indians As Shane Bieber Tested positive for COVID-19, delaying the arrival of the American League Cy Young winner at training camp.

Baseball division president Chris Antonetti said Thursday Bieber only dealt with very mild symptoms of the virus. Antonetti expects Bieber, who trained at the team’s training complex in Goodyear, Arizona, will be joining the club in the next few days.

Antonetti would not disclose if Bieber tested positive.

The team’s pitchers and catchers reported earlier this week, and the Indians will have their first full-roster training session on Sunday.

The 25-year-old Bieber was dominant last season and led the league in 12 starts with wins (8), ERA (1.63) and strikeouts (122). Bieber has gone between 34 and 14 for the past three seasons.

The Indians count on him to lead his strong starting staff and keep the club competitive after trading in All-Star Shortstop Francisco Lindor and right handed Carlos Carrasco.
