Cardinals' Luke Weaver: Struggles again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver allowed six runs on nine hits and four walks while striking out four batters through 4.2 innings during Saturday's win over Milwaukee. He didn't factor into the decision.

This was the second straight poor showing from Weaver. He posted a 2.05 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 11.1 K/9 through 52.2 innings over 11 appearances before allowing 14 runs through just 7.2 frames in his past two starts. While the recent funk is worrisome, Weaver's long-term fantasy outlook remains promising, and the 24-year-old righty projects to be a coveted asset heading into 2018 drafts.

Cardinals' Luke Weaver: Endures first 2017 hiccup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver (7-2) allowed eight runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out just three batters through only three innings to take the loss to the Cubs on Monday.

This was a disastrous outing from the 24-year-old righty, but it was also his lone hiccup in an otherwise awesome late-season surge. After all, Weaver entered Monday's outing with an elite 2.05 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 11.1 K/9 through 52.2 innings over 11 appearances. Even with Monday's disappointing showing, gamers should expect Weaver's fantasy stock to soar leading into next season's draft season. He projects to make his final start of 2017 against the Brewers at Busch Stadium.

Cardinals' Luke Weaver: Fans seven for seventh win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver (7-1) allowed two runs on five hits and struck out seven batters through five innings to take the win against Cincinnati on Wednesday.

After posting a high-end 2.55 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 8.8 K/9 this season with Triple-A Memphis, Weaver has been even better since hitting the majors with 2.05, 1.03 and 11.1 marks through 52.2 innings over 11 appearances. At this stage of the game, Weaver checks out as a strong option for his final two starts of the year at Busch Stadium against the Cubs and Brewers. He projects to be a coveted fantasy asset heading into the 2018 draft season.

Cardinals' Luke Weaver: Beats Reds to improve to 6-1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver (6-1) earned the win over the Reds on Thursday. He was charged with one unearned run on two hits and struck out six over six innings.

This was an excellent performance from the 24-year-old, as he allowed a top-five scoring offense in the NL to put just two runners on over six. With this showing, Weaver brought his ERA under 2.00, and he's now picked up wins in five straight starts. Given how difficult it's been this year to find reliable starting pitching, Weaver is looking like a potential second-half fantasy MVP. He lines up to face the Reds again next week, this time in Cincinnati.

Cardinals' Luke Weaver: Wins fifth straight decision Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver (5-1) recorded the win over the Pirates on Friday, allowing seven hits over 5.2 scoreless innings while striking out seven.

An inflated pitch count -- Weaver threw 76 of 108 pitches for strikes -- prevented him from notching a quality start, but the young right-hander is staking a strong claim to remaining in the rotation through the rest of the season, posting a 1.60 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 45:8 K:BB in 33.2 innings while winning five straight decisions since the beginning of August. Weaver will next take the mound Thursday at home against the Reds.
