Shane Bieber’s shoulder ‘slower to respond’ than hoped | cleveland.com

From Joe Noga:

Indians president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti on Sunday said Bieber’s progress is certainly within the normal timeframe for his expected return, but it’s not on the “quicker end” that the club could have been hoping for at the outset.

“It’s just been a little bit slower to respond than maybe we had hoped,” Antonetti said. “It’s something that’s just lingering in there a little bit. He’s continued to feel better, but maybe just not at the pace that we would have normally expected.”
