Zach Robert Plesac, a Major League Baseball pitcher for the Cleveland Guardians, was born in the United States on January 21, 1995. In 2019, he debuted in MLB.
Plesac was chosen by the Cleveland Indians in the 12th round (362nd overall) in the 2016 Major League Baseball draft. He signed on June 29, 2016, and received a $100,000 signing bonus. However, he did not play in 2016.
Plesac pitched to a combined 11-6 record with a 3.79 ERA in 26 total starts across both organizations in 2018 while playing for both the Class A-Advanced Lynchburg Hillcats and the Double-A Akron RubberDucks. 2019 saw him return to Akron, and in early May he was promoted to the Triple-A Columbus Clippers.
Plesac made eight appearances for the 2020 Cleveland Indians, going 4-2 with a 2.28 ERA, 57 strikeouts, and 55 13 innings worked. Plesac was the opposition pitcher in all three of the Indians’ no-hit games in 2021, which set an MLB record.
With a 10-6 record, 4.67 ERA, and 100 strikeouts in 2021, Plesac achieved his first 10-win season. The Indians were the first team to go three games without being hit in a season when Plesac, in an odd coincidence, was the starting pitcher on the other end of three no-hitters.
