The Cleveland Guardians‘ pitching rotation is beginning to come together. Shane Bieber impressed in his initial spring start on Saturday, showcasing a resurgence in velocity. Following this, Tanner Bibee and Logan Allen took the mound on Sunday in split-squad action, demonstrating continuity in their performances.

In his outing against the Chicago Cubs, Tanner Bibee pitched 1.2 innings, conceding three hits and two earned runs while issuing one walk and striking out three batters. The runs were scored on a LaMonte Wade Jr. home run in the first inning.

Bibee didn’t introduce any new pitches or alter his windup for his spring training debut. His primary focus coming into camp was on regaining full health after last season, aiming to fine-tune his game without making drastic changes. Moving forward, Bibee’s goals in camp are centered around improving his efficiency, fastball command, and ability to get ahead in the count.

Meanwhile, Logan Allen showcased impressive form in his first appearance of spring camp. The southpaw pitched 2.0 innings, issuing just one walk while surrendering no hits or runs and striking out two batters. This performance is encouraging for the Guardians, especially considering Allen’s need to manage his pitch count more effectively this season. In previous seasons, he struggled with hitters extending at-bats by fouling off pitches, leading to higher pitch counts.

If Allen can continue to generate more swings and misses, as he demonstrated on Sunday, he will become a formidable asset at the back end of Cleveland’s rotation.
