MLB: Cleveland Indians at Chicago Cubs Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

None of the starting pitching rotation that started the season is currently healthy and with the big club. Shane Bieber? Shoulder problem. Zach Plesac? Schooled by a shirt. Logan Allen? Working on things in Columbus while pitchers around him come and go. Triston McKenzie? If it’s Tuesday, he must be in Columbus.

The last one standing was Aaron Civale. Now he has a finger injury.

There they are — our starting rotation coming out of camp.
