Biographical Information[edit]

Starting pitcher Shawn Morimando began his professional career in 2011. He was taken by the Cleveland Indians in the 19th round of the 2011 amateur draft.

After posting solid totals his first three years of his career - with ERAs of 3.00, 3.59 and 3.73, respectively - Morimando began 2014 with a bang, going 9-3 with a 2.82 ERA through his first 20 starts. Despite his impressive showing to start the year, he did not make a Mid-Season All-Star team.

Morimando was first called up to the majors on July 2, 2016, the day after the Indians had extended their team-record winning streak to 14 games thanks to a 2-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays that had required 19 innings and taken a big toll on the pitching staff. Shawn pitched 3 2/3 innings in relief against the Jays in his debut, giving up 2 earned runs on 6 hits and the winning streak was snapped.
