After two electric starts to begin the season, Bieber apparently experience elbow pain and got the diagnosis after dominating the Mariners.

Bieber had elbow inflammation before the All-Star break in 2023 and tried to address the issue with rest, coming back for two starts before the season's end. He then went to Driveline in the offseason to work on his velocity, the shape of his offspeed pitches and the utility of his curveball.
