CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland Indians pitcher Shane Bieber is scheduled to throw off a mound for the first time since straining his right shoulder in mid-June. Indians president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti says the right-hander is expected to have a bullpen session Friday or Saturday when the Indians are in Detroit. Bieber, who won the AL Cy Young Award last season, said last week he still hoped to pitch this season.

Right-hander Aaron Civale will pitch a simulated game Friday at Class A Lake County. Civale is dealing with a sprained right middle finger.
