From Mandy Bell:

Starting pitchers (5): Shane Bieber, Zach Plesac, Aaron Civale, Logan Allen, Triston McKenzie

Allen was the highlight of the Indians’ camp and pitched his way into the rotation. Because the Indians are going to utilize a four-man rotation in April, McKenzie likely will start the season in the bullpen.
