  • Guardians' Shane Bieber: Gives up season-high seven runs

    Bieber did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing seven runs on eight hits and two walks over four innings during a 12-8 win over the Orioles. He struck out four.

    Bieber finished with season-worst marks in innings pitched, hits allowed and runs allowed, but he was let off the hook thanks to a five-run fifth by the Guardians' offense. It was by far the worst outing of the campaign for the right-hander, who entered the contest with a 3.04 ERA and 1.23 WHIP across his first 11 starts (71 innings). His decline in strikeouts this season -- he currently has just 53 strikeouts across 75 frames -- portends more regression to come with the ratios.

  • Guardians' Shane Bieber: Earns win in lackluster outing

    Bieber (4-3) allowed two runs on five hits and four walks over 6.2 innings Friday, striking out two and earning a win over St. Louis.

    It certainly wasn't Bieber's strongest outing, but he kept the Cardinals off the board through five innings before stumbling a bit near the end of his start. He's now allowed three or fewer runs in 10 of his first 11 starts this season, resulting in a 3.04 ERA across 71 innings. However, he's posted a pedestrian 49:19 K:BB after recording a season-low two punchouts Friday. Bieber's next start is projected to come next week in Minnesota.

  • Guardians' Shane Bieber: Fires eight innings

    Bieber (3-3) allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks over eight innings during the second game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Mets. He struck out four and took the loss.

    Coming off his worst start of the year, Bieber turned in a strong outing but was still handed a loss. He cruised through five shutout frames before Francisco Lindor broke the shutout with a sixth-inning homer. Bieber has allowed three or fewer runs in nine of his 10 starts this season, resulting in a 3.08 ERA with a 47:15 K:BB. Since the start of May, he's posted a 3.04 ERA across 26.2 frames. Bieber's next outing is projected to be at home against the Cardinals.

  • Guardians' Shane Bieber: Roughed up by ChiSox

    Bieber (3-2) took the loss Tuesday, allowing six runs (five earned) on 12 hits and zero walks over 4.2 innings against the White Sox. He struck out four.

    Bieber had his worst start of the season Tuesday, setting season highs in hits allowed and earned runs while failing to make it to the sixth inning for the first time in nine starts. Though he made it through the first four frames without giving up a run, the White Sox finally got to him in the fifth inning by scoring six runs. The inning was highlighted by a three-run home run by Gavin Sheets that plated Yoan Moncada and Andrew Vaughn, while a Jake Burger two-run long ball brought Yasmani Grandal home. Bieber failed to record a quality start for just the second time this season while increasing his season ERA to 3.20 from 2.61 and HR/9 to 0.96 from 0.70. The 28-year-old has not had his typical strikeout juice this year, owning what would be a career-low 6.87 K/9. Part of the reason for this decrease could be a dip in velocity. While throwing 92.9 mph in 2023, he held a 12.48 K/9, before dropping down to 91.5 mph in 2022 with an 8.91 K/9 and staying around 91.5 mph in 2023.

  • Guardians' Shane Bieber: Blanks Detroit

    Bieber (3-1) earned the win Tuesday, allowing seven hits and one walk over six scoreless innings against the Tigers. He struck out nine.

    Detroit managed seven hits against Bieber, but the 27-year-old right-hander held the Tigers off the scoresheet thanks to a season-high nine-strikeout performance. Bieber has logged quality starts in five of his six outings this year. He lowered his ERA to 2.61 with a 1.10 WHIP and 39:13 K:BB. He'll look to keep it rolling in his next outing, tentatively lined up for next week against the White Sox.

  • Guardians' Shane Bieber: Efficient start not enough

    Bieber did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk over eight innings during a 4-3 loss to the Yankees in extras. He struck out four.

    Aside from a pair of solo home runs in the fifth, Bieber was efficient and carved up the Yankees across a season-high eight innings. He currently sports a 2.96 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP through seven appearances, but there's some concerning trends to the start of his season. The long ball is slowly emerging as an issue for the right-hander, who's now surrendered four home runs over his past four starts, and his strikeout numbers are also down from previous years. He has 30 strikeouts through 45.2 innings after punching out 198 over 200 innings last year, and before that Bieber had posted at least one strikeout per inning over each of his previous four campaigns.

  • Guardians' Shane Bieber: Picks up second win

    Bieber (2-1) earned a win over Boston on Friday, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks over seven innings. He struck out four batters.

    Bieber recorded exactly four punchouts for the fourth straight game. He's now sporting a lackluster 26:11 K:BB through 37.2 frames this season, and his 6.2 K/9 mark would be the lowest of his career. Bieber also forced just six whiffs, tying his season low. However, the 27-year-old has a solid 3.11 ERA and has given up three or fewer runs in each of his six outings. Bieber is projected to face the Twins at home next week.
