Shane Bieber makes rehab start in Akron | cleveland.com

From Marc Bona:

Bieber, rehabbing his shoulder with the RubberDucks, took the mound at Canal Park with a 60-pitch limit and threw 3 and 1/3 innings, giving up three hits and three runs, all earned. He struck out four and walked one. He threw 57 pitches, with 38 strikes.

Unofficially, Bieber topped out at 93 mph.

The RubberDucks came from behind to win, 5-4, and earned a playoff berth.

“It has been challenging, it has been frustrating,” said Bieber, who was 7-4 with a 3.28 ERA with the Indians when he was placed on injured reserve June 14 with a right shoulder subscapularis strain. The subscapularis is the rotator cuff’s largest muscle. “There’s a whole lot of other adjectives I can use. I feel healthy and I feel good.”
