American pitcher Zach Robert Plesac, who plays for the Cleveland Guardians of Major League Baseball, was born on January 21, 1995. He debuted in the MLB in 2019.
The Cleveland Indians picked Plesac in the 12th round (362nd overall) of the 2016 Major League Baseball draft. Plesac signed on June 29, 2016, and received a $100,000 signing bonus. However, he did not participate in any games that year.
Plesac pitched to a combined 11-6 record with a 3.79 ERA in 26 appearances for both the Class A-Advanced Lynchburg Hillcats and the Double-A Akron RubberDucks in 2018. In the beginning of 2019, he went back to Akron, and in early May, he was promoted to the Triple-A Columbus Clippers.
Plesac played in eight games for the 2020 Cleveland Indians, recording a 4-2 record, 2.28 ERA, and 57 strikeouts in 55+13 innings thrown. An MLB record was achieved in 2021 when the Indians were no-hit three times, with Plesac pitching the opposition in each of those games.
Plesac achieved his first 10-win season in 2021, compiling a 10-6 record, a 4.67 ERA, and 100 strikeouts. The Indians became the first club to be no-hit in three games in a season, and it was an odd coincidence that Plesac was the starting pitcher on the other end of those three no-hitters.
