Plesac to debut on Tuesday | Indians.com

Exciting stuff! From Mandy Bell:

On Sunday, Indians manager Terry Francona said that right-hander Zach Plesac will make his Major League debut in the second game of a three-game series against the Red Sox at Fenway Park.

Cleveland drafted Plesac, the nephew of former Major Leaguer Dan Plesac, in the 12th round of the 2016 MLB Draft. He had attended Ball State and underwent Tommy John surgery his senior year.

Plesac made it to Double-A Akron for four starts in 2018 and overall posted a 3.79 ERA in 26 Minor League starts that included 22 at Class A Advanced Lynchburg. It took him just six outings in Akron this season before getting the promotion to Triple-A Columbus.

In those six starts, he pitched to a 0.96 ERA with six walks and 34 strikeouts in 37 1/3 innings. He then logged a 2.25 ERA over three starts in Columbus, with one walk and 22 strikeouts in 20 frames.
