Pretty impressive start and chart shows this is something he can likely sustain: FB- averaged 94+ MPH and goes to it often, was really close even when he was missing with it, lots of vert action

I wanted part of this.  And what's funny is.  I was watching him pitch and the first 2 innings he looked like a deer in headlights.  I was like Why did I start him.  Then all the sudden he settled dow

Nice start today, chart was pretty nice too: FB- up a full tick from his last start, averaged 95 MPH and popped 97, great vert action to it, threw 61--42 strikes with 34 swings and 8 whiffs! Stri

Think everyone is overreacting a bit here. Going to drop after one bad start? I mean come on he’s been great every since he’s been up give him a break! The orioles are hot right now clearly. 2 straight games 13 runs

I agree. I’m holding at least one more start.

Not quite, the under the hood numbers were screaming for this to finally happen.

Agree about the constant statements that lack anything that contributes. I try to keep comments to things I've seen, or things I've looked deeper into stats wise. 

Anywho, he's what I said earlier in the gamely thread. I've only had Plesac for today and his last torching, so I made a point to watch today. He was the cause of his own demise, not really his pitches per say, but other random BS...

"Plesac just got saved by A. Cole who stranded three of his runners and three more ER, but Plesac caused all of this... all 3 charged ER. He kicks a ball that would have gone straight to 2'nd baseman for an out, then gets a bunt, doesn't throw home for some reason... but awkwardly underhands to 1'st baseman. How was that NOT an error on Bradley? It was like Bradley had an effing grenade thrown to him or something, he caught it and just started tap dancing for the base... just beyond laughable!!! Either way, the inning could have ended w/ a hit and a BB... NO RUNS. Could have been 3IP, 2 HITS, 1BB, ZERO ER... But of course not, cause this $hit ALWAYS happens to my pitchers and is usually of the wtf, beyond bizarro variety just like this! I give up, I'm drafting (9) kickers next year rather than pitchers, its much safer! :wacko:"

I'd agree that he is unpolished but he really gives me Bieber vibes from last year. Both need to get settled in or they're gonna get screwed by how many strikes they throw. Having had Bieber and seen him all last year,  idk feel inclined to give Plesac a longer leash.

Don't get me wrong, I think Bieber comps are in line. I do like the kid, just didn't get to own him while he was doing much better. I think he'll be fine, was just commenting that he was unlucky to have things go south today, and while it was his fault, it was fielding rather than pitching that did him in today. DJ Dan is his uncle, he's got that going for him too!

Agreed. Hes a perfect backend starter for this year with a decent amount of upside. I think if they adjust his pitch sequencing hell improve too.

Sent down to AAA.

 

All-star break shenanigans or something more?

 

Would be due to pitch Tuesday, problem is columbus doesn't play. Think this is more about fixing issues than roster management.

Cleveland.com today speaking of the issue 

 

 

Plesac, meanwhile, can go to Columbus and get a start over the All-Star break and rejoin the Indians rotation when play resumes Friday against the Twins at Progressive Field. Of course, the Indians could have other plans.

One thing that stands out to me is the catcher. He’s being lazy AF and not presenting a target whatsoever. 

This isn’t acceptable for anyone, let alone a RC pitcher. Tuuuuurible! 

 

This happens WAY more than you'd expect throughout baseball.

Really hoping we hear something on the Indians plans to bring him back into the rotation or not sooner than later. Waiting on the all-star break here to drop him or another guy or not. Nobody heard anything?

Pitched yesterday in AAA:   6.1 IP, 3ER, 4H, 2BB, 9K

That would line him up to pitch in a juicy matchup on Tuesday vs Detroit if they choose to bring him back. 

He's gotta be the 4th or 5th starter coming out the break after that outing. The Indians have no days off the rest of the month almost. Surprised they hadn't already announced it.
