  • Cubs' Richard Lovelady: Signs MiLB deal with Cubs

    Lovelady signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Monday, Driveline Baseball reports. Lovelady had a throwing session at Driveline on Monday and came out of it with a deal from the Cubs. The left-handed reliever missed a chunk of the 2023 season with a strained forearm, but it would appear he is now healthy. Lovelady holds a career 5.26 ERA and 64:25 K:BB over 65 innings covering parts of four major-league seasons.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Outrighted to Triple-A

    The Athletics outrighted Lovelady (forearm) to Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday. Lovelady held a 4.63 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 24:10 K:BB through 23.1 innings of relief this season with the A's before missing the entire second half because of a severe left forearm strain. The 28-year-old southpaw is officially off the 40-man roster in Oakland, though he'll remain part of the organization for the time being.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Goes to 60-day IL

    The Athletics transferred Lovelady (forearm) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Wednesday. Lovelady's move to the 60-day IL was merely a formality after he had already been ruled out for the season with a strained left forearm. The transaction opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for left-hander Sean Newcomb, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Shut down for season

    Athletics manager Mark Kotsay announced Saturday that Lovelady (forearm) has been shut down for the remainder of the season, Martin Gallegos of reports. Kotsay didn't provide any other information, but Lovelady's weekend visit with Dr. Neal ElAttrache apparently didn't yield encouraging news regarding the reliever's recovery from a strained left forearm. The 28-year-old reliever finishes the 2023 campaign with a 4.63 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 24:10 K:BB in 23.1 innings.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Undergoing further evaluation

    Lovelady is slated to undergo further evaluation on his injured forearm with Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles, the team's official site reports. The details surrounding Lovelady's forearm issues have been somewhat murky, and the fact he'll be undergoing further consultation suggests they may be a bit more complex than initially believed. The southpaw was placed on the injured list July 14, retroactive to July 11, and he remains shut down from throwing for the time being.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Back from injured list

    Lovelady (elbow) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Sunday. Lovelady landed on the shelf in mid-June with a left-elbow strain, but he spent just one day over the 15-day minimum on the IL. He's been a solid late-inning option for Oakland this year with four holds and a 3.86 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 20:10 K:BB across 21 innings.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Throws 20-pitch bullpen session

    Lovelady (elbow) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session before Tuesday's game versus the Yankees, Martin Gallegos of reports. Lovelady has been on the 15-day injured list with a strain in his left elbow since June 16. The left-hander will likely need to throw a couple more sessions and may need a rehab assignment before having a chance to rejoin the Oakland bullpen in the early portion of July.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Pulled with apparent arm injury

    Lovelady was removed from Thursday's game against the Rays with an apparent left arm injury, Martin Gallegos of reports.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Could be in mix for saves

    Lovelady (0-3) allowed one earned run on a walk and no hits while striking out one across 0.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Mariners. Lovelady entered the game in the bottom of the eighth inning with the score knotted at 2-2. He retired two of the three batters he faced but was pulled for Garrett Acton, who was on the mound when the winning run crossed the plate. Lovelady began the season in the minors, but he has pitched well since being recalled, turning in 13 scoreless outings in 16 appearances. It's difficult to decipher the Athletics bullpen due to their lack of wins and standout talent, but Lovelady could see some save chances moving forward -- particularly while Zach Jackson (elbow) is sidelined.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Recalled from Triple-A

    Lovelady was recalled Saturday from Triple-A Las Vegas. Oakland claimed Lovelady off waivers from Atlanta on Thursday, and now he'll jump into the bullpen Saturday afternoon against the visiting Mets. Hogan Harris has been optioned.

  • Braves' Richard Lovelady: Headed to Atlanta

    Atlanta acquired Lovelady from the Royals on Thursday in exchange for cash considerations. He was then optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett. Lovelady failed to make the Royals' Opening Day roster and is now headed to a new organization. He'll provide Atlanta with some left-handed relief depth at Gwinnett.

  • Royals' Richard Lovelady: Sent to Triple-A

    Lovelady was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Saturday. Lovelady had an excellent spring, pitching eight innings without allowing an earned run or a walk while striking out 10. Despite the strong showing, Anne Rogers of reports the Royals want Lovelady to work on building up arm strength after missing most of 2022 while recovering from Tommy John surgery. If the southpaw can continue his strong pitching into the minor-league regular season, it shouldn't be long before he's an option for the major-league roster.

  • Royals' Richard Lovelady: Contract selected by KC

    The Royals selected Lovelady's contract from Triple-A Omaha on Thursday. Lovelady sat out most of 2022 while he rehabbed from Tommy John surgery, but he returned to game action in September with Double-A Northwest Arkansas and Omaha. The left-hander had a 3.48 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 23:6 K:BB across 20.2 innings prior to the injury in 2021 and could be a bullpen piece for Kansas City to open next season.

  • Royals' Richard Lovelady: Returns from Tommy John surgery

    Lovelady (elbow) was reinstated from Double-A Northwest Arkansas' 60-day injured list Sept. 18 and struck out two over a scoreless inning in his 2022 debut for the affiliate. Lovelady made a remarkably quick recovery from the Tommy John surgery he required last September, making his return to game action exactly 12 months later. After the strong showing at Northwest Arkansas, Lovelady was bumped up to Triple-A Omaha last week. He struck out four over two scoreless innings between his first two appearances at Omaha.

  • Richard Lovelady: Let go by Kansas City

  • Royals' Richard Lovelady: Undergoes Tommy John surgery

    Lovelady (elbow) announced Wednesday that he recently underwent Tommy John surgery, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports. Lovelady was initially expected to avoid surgery for the sprained UCL in his left elbow, but that is no longer the case. Given the recovery timeline involved with the surgery, it's unlikely the lefty pitches in the majors during 2022. He should have plenty of time to be ready for the 2023 season, barring any setbacks in the lengthy recovery.

  • Royals' Richard Lovelady: Shifts to 60-day IL

    Lovelady (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday. Lovelady was already expected to miss the rest of the season after being diagnosed with a sprained UCL in his left elbow in late August, and the move to the 60-day IL frees up a spot on the 40-man roster. The 26-year-old hasn't undergone Tommy John surgery and is instead going through a rest and rehab program, so he should be able to pitch next season if all goes well in his recovery.

  • Royals' Richard Lovelady: Expected to avoid surgery

    Royals general manager Dayton Moore said Sunday that he expects Lovelady to avoid surgery and treat the sprained UCL in his left elbow with rest and rehab, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Kansas City reports. Injuries of these sort often involve Tommy John surgery, but Lovelady appears likely to avoid a procedure that would sideline him through the 2022 season. Though Moore didn't say so, Lovelady is still expected to miss the remainder of the 2021 campaign, but the lefty will be sent in for further tests before the Royals provide an updated timeline for his return, per Anne Rogers of

  • Royals' Richard Lovelady: Dealing with UCL sprain

    The Royals placed Lovelady on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a UCL sprain in his left elbow. The injury comes at a tough time for Lovelady, who has posted 7.1 straight scoreless innings while logging four holds in that span. The Royals haven't revealed the severity of Lovelady's sprain, but since he's dealing with structural damage to his elbow, it's possible that his season could be over, and Tommy John surgery may even be in the cards. Tyler Zuber was called up from Triple-A Omaha to take his place on the roster.

  • Royals' Richard Lovelady: Earns first career save

    Lovelady worked a perfect ninth inning Sunday, striking out two batters and earning a save over the Cardinals. Lovelady had seen only one save chance in his career prior to Sunday's outing, a blown opportunity back in 2019. He quickly rolled through the ninth inning, striking out Tommy Edman and Paul DeJong on the way to his first career save. The 26-year-old southpaw owns a 4.50 ERA through 12 innings this season.
