  • Luke Weaver: Heads to free agency

    The Mariners declined to tender Weaver a contract for 2023, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

    Once upon a time, Weaver was a headliner in the return for Paul Goldschmidt. Injuries and ineffectiveness mired his time in Arizona, and his struggles continued following a move to Kansas City last season.

  • Mariners' Luke Weaver: Claimed by Mariners

    Weaver was claimed off waivers by the Mariners on Wednesday.

    Weaver was traded from the Diamondbacks to the Royals at the beginning of August, and he logged a 5.59 ERA and 1.86 WHIP in 19.1 innings over 14 relief appearances following the move. The 29-year-old will likely have to compete for a spot in the major-league bullpen during spring training in 2023.

  • Royals' Luke Weaver: Ineffective with Kansas City

    Weaver has posted a 6.55 ERA and 2.18 WHIP across 11 innings since joining the Royals at the trade deadline.

    Weaver has allowed at least one run in six of his nine appearances since the Diamondbacks traded him away for infielder Emmanuel Rivera. That stands in stark contrast with Weaver's success just prior to the trade. Overall, he has a 7.24 ERA, 1.94 WHIP, 30:12 K:BB and 1-1 record through 21 appearances (one start) between the two teams. He'll likely close out the year in a low-leverage role.

  • Royals' Luke Weaver: Lands with Kansas City

    Weaver was traded to the Royals from the Diamondbacks on Monday in exchange for third baseman Emmanuel Rivera, John reports.

    Weaver has been on a roll since the start of July, being scored upon only once in his last eight appearances out of Arizona's bullpen, so the Royals will see what he can do as a member of their relief ranks. They could also give him another chance to start if they are so inclined.

  • Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Extends scoreless streak in loss

    Weaver allowed one hit and struck out two over a scoreless inning in Tuesday's 13-0 loss to the Giants.

    Weaver made a fourth consecutive appearance without allowing a run, and notably it came during a game in which Dallas Keuchel was knocked out early. The left-handed Keuchel sports a 9.64 ERA over four outings since taking over as Arizona's fifth starter. If the Diamondbacks decide the Keuchel experiment is not worth extending, Weaver is one candidate to enter the rotation.

  • Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Fires scoreless inning

    Weaver allowed one hit and struck out one over a scoreless ninth inning in Friday's 6-5 loss to the Rockies.

    Weaver, who hadn't pitched in five days, posted a third consecutive scoreless outing -- all against Colorado. The one-time starter is settling into a bullpen role for the Diamondbacks in 2022. In six relief appearances, the right-hander has a 4.70 ERA and .343 batting average against over 7.2 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Throws in relief

    Weaver allowed two runs on four hits and struck out two over one relief inning in Wednesday's 10-4 loss to the Padres.

    Weaver needed 36 pitches to get through his inning, which seemingly puts him out of consideration for a start during this weekend's series against Detroit. It was reported earlier this week that the right-hander would be used as a reliever for the immediate future, signaling he wouldn't serve as the team's fifth starter going forward. While Weaver's role could change, the club is monitoring Dallas Keuchel for the open No. 5 starter job.

  • Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Will serve as reliever

    Weaver will be available as a reliever in coming days, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Weaver joined the five-man rotation last week but was shelled by the Twins on Saturday. Arizona manager Torey Lovullo confirmed the right-hander did not throw an in-between-starts bullpen session Tuesday, signaling that he will not start the next time the fifth starter's turn comes due this weekend. The Diamondbacks have days off in the coming weeks that would allow them to go with four starters, but Lovullo also confirmed that he would like to give the top four starters rest and is "targeting someone this weekend" to start against the Tigers. That "someone" could be Dallas Keuchel, who impressed decision-makers in a seven-inning outing at the Arizona Complex League on Monday.

  • Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Shelled by Twins

    Weaver (1-1) took the loss during Saturday's 11-1 defeat at the hands of the Twins, allowing nine runs on 10 hits and one walk with five strikeouts in 3.2 innings.

    Making his first start of 2022, Weaver retired six of seven through two innings, but everything fell apart in the third. The 28-year-old surrendered six runs on six hits, then was sent back out for the fourth and permitted three more runs on four hits before being relieved. In limited work this year, Weaver has allowed 11 runs on 19 baserunners with nine strikeouts in 7.1 innings. He's currently slated to start against Detroit next weekend, though another poor outing could get Weaver relegated to long relief.

  • Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Expected starter Saturday

    Arizona pitching coach Brent Strom said Weaver will be the team's starter Saturday against the Twins, Theo Mackie of the Arizona Republic reports.

    The Diamondbacks' official site has not yet added Weaver's name as the starter for Saturday's game preview, but this move was anticipated after the right-hander was the bulk-innings pitcher in Sunday's win over Philadelphia. He moves into the fifth rotation spot that has been a revolving door for Arizona. Prior to Weaver, it was filled by Caleb Smith, Humberto Castellanos (elbow) and Tyler Gilbert. The organization also has a couple of arms at Triple-A Reno perceived as major-league ready -- Tommy Henry and Ryne Nelson -- that could eventually make it to Arizona.

  • Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Earns win in return

    Weaver (1-0) allowed one run on three hits and two walks over three innings Sunday, striking out four and picking up a win over the Phillies.

    Making his first MLB appearance since April 7, Weaver threw 36 of 62 pitches for strikes and forced eight whiffs. He took the mound in the second inning after Kyle Nelson tossed a scoreless frame as the opener. The only damage against Weaver came in the fourth inning on Alec Bohm's RBI single. The 28-year-old is expected to start next week at home against the Twins.

  • Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Likely to serve as primary pitcher

    Weaver (elbow) was added to Arizona's taxi squad Saturday and is expected to be activated from the 60-day inured list and serve as the Diamondbacks' primary pitcher behind Kyle Nelson in Sunday's game in Philadelphia, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Moving Weaver from his rehab assignment to the taxi squad seemingly sets up a scenario in which he's activated and throws multiple innings Sunday. Weaver was built up to four innings and 60 pitches after the second of two rehab starts and appears to be the leading candidate to replace Humberto Castellanos (elbow), whose injury created the need for a starter Sunday. The Diamondbacks will need to make a corresponding move to the 40-man roster to accommodate Weaver's expected activation.

  • Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Activated from injured list

    Weaver (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list as expected Sunday.

    Weaver made just a single appearance this season before hitting the injured list with an elbow strain. Despite opening the season as a reliever, he's been building up for a starting role, though his return to action is expected to come in a bulk-relief role following opener Kyle Nelson against the Phillies on Sunday.

  • Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Rehab assignment completed

    Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said Weaver (elbow) will make his next appearance in the majors, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Weaver allowed two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings across two rehab starts with Triple-A Reno. He apparently came out of a bullpen session Friday without incident. Lovullo said the right-hander has completed his rehab assignment and is a candidate to start Sunday's series finale in Philadelphia.

  • Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Throwing bullpen Friday

    Weaver (elbow) will throw a bullpen session Friday and will then be evaluated for a potential start Sunday against the Phillies, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Weaver's coming off a promising four-inning rehab start at Triple-A Reno on Tuesday and lines up nicely for Sunday. "Everything was very good," Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said, acknowledging that Weaver is being considered for Sunday's start. "Stuff was good. There was high velocity. I think he was pitching at 92-93 (mph) and was ticking up every now and then." Weaver's status for Sunday should become clearer following a review of his performance Friday.

  • Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Promising in rehab start

    Weaver (elbow) allowed one run on three hits while striking out three over four innings in a rehab start for Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.

    Weaver tossed 60 pitches (40 strikes) in his second rehab start. His promising outing came on a night when the parent club endured a rough start by Tyler Gilbert, who was filling in for injured No. 5 starter Humberto Castellanos (elbow/forearm). Gilbert was chased after 1.2 innings (seven runs, two home runs), which leaves manager Torey Lovullo considering multiple options for Sunday's start against the Phillies. As Lovullo described it to Steve Gilbert of, the No. 5 starter situation is "fluid." The managerial staff will discuss a number of internal options, of which Weaver is one.
