The Cleveland Indians selected pitcher Aaron Civale in the third round of the amateur draft out of Northeastern University in 2016.
On June 22, 2019, he made his major league debut for the Indians against the Detroit Tigers.
He struck out the side in the first inning and went on to pitch six scoreless innings, allowing only two infield hits, to earn the 2-0 victory.
Civale made ten starts, pitching 57 2/3 innings and posting a 2.34 ERA.
The Indians sent him to Triple A the day before a global roster freeze, indicating that his solid numbers were not enough to retain him on the team during the COVID-19 pandemic.
He pitched six innings against the Detroit Tigers, striking out six batters and winning the game 2–0 after Brad Hand rescued his 22nd game.
He became the 10th pitcher in Major League history (and the first for the Indians) to throw at least 5+23 innings and allow two runs or fewer in each of his first six starts since 1908.
He was 4–6 with a 4.74 ERA in 2020. He had the most hits allowed (82) and the highest batting average against in the American League (.282). Civale was placed on the injured list with a middle finger strain on June 23, 2021.
Civale led the MLB in victories with ten at the time of his assignment. Civale was placed on the 60-day injury list on July 26.
Civale returned in September, and on October 3, he pitched six scoreless innings against the Texas Rangers to win Cleveland’s final game under the Indians moniker.
