Lewicki was released by the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. Lewicki made just two major-league appearances in 2020, allowing two runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out five over 3.1 innings. After seeing limited action in the big leagues, the 28-year-old intends to play overseas in 2021.
Lewicki was optioned to the alternate site Sunday. Lewicki joined the big-league club on Sept. 1 and pitched in the major leagues for the first time since 2018. The 28-year old threw 3.1 innings and allowed two earned runs while striking out five.
Lewicki's contract was selected by the Diamondbacks on Tuesday. Lewicki last appeared in the majors in 2018 prior to undergoing Tommy John surgery. He'll return to a major-league bullpen in Arizona, but he likely won't play a prominent relief role.
Lewicki will be a part of the Diamondbacks' 60-man summer camp. Lewicki's 2018 season was cut short by a second Tommy John surgery, and he was later claimed off waivers by Arizona and outrighted off the 40-man a month afterwards. He's at least seen action in the majors, however, appearing in 13 games for Detroit in 2018 and posting a 4.89 ERA before injury shut down his season. He missed the entire 2019 campaign as a result.
Lewicki (elbow) was sent outright to Triple-A Reno on Tuesday. Lewicki was cast off the Diamondbacks' 40-man roster in order to free up space for prospects who need to be protected in advance of the Rule 5 draft. The 26-year-old righty is slated to miss the entire 2019 campaign after undergoing Tommy John surgery at the end of August.
