Meet Kara Kavajecz — Girlfriend of Indians Pitcher Shane Bieber

It’s an exciting day for The Land. The Cavaliers are beginning Round 4 against the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals, and hyped pitching prospect Shane Bieber out of UCSB is making his debut for the Indians… on his 23rd birthday!


Never say never.

Bieber was drafted in the fourth round of the 2016 MLB Draft and more than lived up to his reputation as a command artist on the mound. He walked just 15 people (while striking out 244) in his 262 innings in the minor leagues. Baseball America had him ranked as their 91st prospect coming into the season — a snippet of his scouting report:

Bieber is starting to outgrow the command-and-control label, because his stuff made a jump in 2017. His fastball, which sat around 90 mph in college, now sits 92-94 and touched 96. His curveball got sharper and more consistent, developing into his best secondary pitch. He also throws a slider and changeup, which can both be average offerings. He has a clean, easy delivery and has shown he can handle a heavy workload–his 173.1 innings led all minor leaguers in 2017.

And now the news that will just ruin the day of jersey chasers in Cleveland, the Biebs has a girlfriend in Kara Kavajecz. She attended SB City College.
