Yesterday, our own Mark Warmuth penned a piece providing a look at how the Cleveland Indians’ rotation may shape up come postseason. Within the article, he claimed Zach Plesac should be considered as the Tribe’s No. 2 starter when October rolls around.
Such a role is especially important this year, when the playoffs open with a best-of-three series. Regardless of how much success the Indians see in the regular season, they could still be sent packing in the span of two games.
Which is why I’m here to submit my vote for Plesac, as well.
On the surface, it’s easy to see why such a suggestion may seem questionable. However, the deeper you dive into the numbers, the clearer said decision becomes.
