Bieber took the huge gains he had made in 2019 and kicked the into hyperdrive en route to a Cy Young season. He had a miniscule 1.63 ERA and a 0.87 WHIP, and took his strikeout percentage to 41.1%, which ranked first among qualified starters. Everything was exceptional for Bieber, as he held batters to just a .167 batting average, barely allowed home runs, and earned eight wins in just 12 starts. He may struggle to again find wins given the Indians' depleted lineup, but there is nothing else to think twice about with Bieber. He's part of the ultra-elite tier in starting pitching with Jacob deGrom and Gerrit Cole, and should be a first-round selection, especially since he seems to have had no ill effects from his battle with COVID-19.

Shane Bieber says Indians haven't yet discussed extension with him

Indians ace Shane Bieber says the team hasn't begun extension conversations with him.

Fantasy Impact

Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer noted that Bieber sounded excited about the prospect of an extension. The 25-year-old is under club control through the 2024 campaign, so the organization may or may not be in a huge hurry to get something done.
