Weaver left Sunday's game against the Nationals with right shoulder discomfort. Weaver allowed a hit and two walks while striking out three in four scoreless innings prior to his removal from Sunday's game. It's not yet clear whether the injury will impact his availability for his next outing. Weaver tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road Friday against Colorado.
Weaver (2-3) allowed four hits over 6.1 scoreless innings Monday, striking out six and earning a win over Miami. Weaver had been stuck in a brutal stretch entering Monday's game, allowing 17 runs in as many innings while going 0-3 over his last four starts. He gave up two extra-base hits in the shutout appearance but was never in too much danger. The 27-year-old right-hander lowered his season ERA to 5.00 through 36 innings. He's projected to take the mound this weekend at home against Washington.
Weaver will remain in the rotation and is expected to start Monday at home against the Marlins, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. Arizona manager Torey Lovullo had discussions on the best path forward for Weaver, who has a 9.00 ERA and allowed 25 hits and 10 walks over the last four starts (17 innings). This doesn't mean he's out of the woods yet. The Diamondbacks have Jon Duplantier, who is currently on the taxi squad while the team is on the road, and he's stretched out 70 pitches.
Manager Torey Lovullo and his staff are having discussions about the next steps for Weaver after a rough outing Wednesday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. "We're right in the middle of that conversation," Lovullo said. "We're trying to make the best decisions moving forward to help this team win baseball games every single night." Weaver allowed six runs over four innings Wednesday, pumping his ERA up to 6.07 after six starts. Following the game, the manager was not ready to give up on the right-hander, which is prudent given that Arizona is down a couple of other starters already in Taylor Widener (groin) and Merrill Kelly (undisclosed). Weaver lines up to start Monday at home against the Marlins, the team he faced Wednesday.
Weaver (1-3) allowed six runs on six hits and two walks with six strikeouts in four innings in a loss to Miami on Wednesday. Weaver struggled early on, as he allowed a pair of runs in the first inning. In the second, he gave up an RBI triple to Miguel Rojas and a three-run home run to Adam Duvall. It's been a difficult start to the season for Weaver, who owns a 6.07 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 29:11 K:BB across 29.2 innings. He's also given up six home runs across six starts, which likely plays a big part in his poor numbers. The right-hander is projected for a rematch with Miami next week.
