Zach Plesac

Zach Robert Plesac (born January 21, 1995) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Cleveland Guardians of Major League Baseball (MLB). He made his MLB debut in 2019.

Plesac was selected in the 12th round (362nd overall) of the 2016 Major League Baseball draft by the Cleveland Indians and signed on June 29, 2016, for a $100,000 signing bonus, but did not play in 2016.

He began his professional career in 2017 with the Class A Short Season Mahoning Valley Scrappers, and after posting a 1.38 ERA in eight games (seven starts), was promoted to the Class A Lake County Captains where he finished the season, posting a 1–1 record with a 3.60 ERA in six starts.

The Indians selected Plesac’s contract from the Clippers on May 28, 2019. He made his MLB debut that day at Fenway Park against the Boston Red Sox, allowing one run on four hits in 5+1⁄3 innings and receiving a no-decision.

In the middle of a heated wildcard playoff race, Plesac pitched a 4 hit shutout against the Los Angeles Angels. It was both Plesac’s first complete game and the first shutout of his career.

With the 2020 Cleveland Indians, Plesac appeared in eight games, compiling a 4–2 record with 2.28 ERA and 57 strikeouts in 55+1⁄3 innings pitched. In 2021, the Indians were no-hit three times, and Plesac was the opposing pitcher in all three instances, setting an MLB record.
