Indians ace Bieber out multiple weeks

CLEVELAND (AP) Shane Bieber's season is suddenly on pause, leaving the Indians to survive for a while without their ace.

The AL's reigning Cy Young winner won't throw for at least two weeks because of a right shoulder strain, an injury that will further test Cleveland's pitching depth and could send the Indians, who have been competitive for 2 1/2 months, into a tailspin.

After allowing a season-high in hits - and throwing 107 pitches over five innings - in a loss to Seattle on Sunday that dropped him to 7-4, Bieber underwent an MRI. It showed he has a subscapularis muscle strain in his right shoulder.
