Cardinals' Luke Weaver: Moved back to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver will work out of the bullpen moving forward, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.

Thanks to an off day Thursday, the Cardinals are able to proceed with a four-man rotation until next Monday, at which point Adam Wainwright (elbow) is expected to rejoin the rotation after a lengthy stay on the disabled list. Wainwright's return pushed both Weaver and Daniel Poncedeleon to the bullpen, though both will remain options to start down the stretch should an opportunity arise. While it's a small sample size, Weaver has fared better in relief this season, posting a 2.25 ERA across three appearances (four innings) compared to his 4.66 mark through 25 starts (129.1 innings).

Cardinals' Luke Weaver: Issues five walks in return to rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver allowed two runs on three hits and five walks across four innings en route to a no-decision Sunday against the Reds. He struck out four.

Weaver struggled with his control in this one, throwing just 57 percent of his pitches for strikes as he tied his season high in free passes. Three of those walks came in a two-run first inning, though Joey Votto was the only one to come around to score. Weaver settled down over the next three frames, but he had already worked up to 83 pitches by that point and was removed prior to the fifth. This was his first start in roughly three weeks and he'll look for a better result in his next scheduled outing this weekend against the Tigers.

Cardinals' Luke Weaver: In line to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver will take the hill for Sunday's series finale against the Reds, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Weaver will temporarily rejoin the rotation for a spot start in order to give Jack Flaherty an extra day of rest before starting Monday's game in Washington. Over the past two weeks, Weaver has served exclusively out of the bullpen, including a clean inning of work versus Pittsburgh during Thursday's victory. In 23 starts this year, he's logged a 4.66 ERA and 1.40 WHIP with 111 strikeouts in 121.2 innings.

Cardinals' Luke Weaver: Retreats to relief role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver will be removed from the Cardinals rotation, with Daniel Poncedeleon taking his place and starting Tuesday, Rob Rains of StLSportsPage.com reports.

It's been a disappointing season for the 24-year-old, whose ERA sits at 4.67 through 24 starts after he received a fair bit of buzz as a potential breakout candidate prior to the start of the season. He'll lose his place after failing to throw more than four innings in three of his last five starts, posting a 1.88 WHIP over that stretch.

Cardinals' Luke Weaver: Chased early in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver (6-11) tossed 3.2 innings Thursday, allowing four runs (two earned) on seven hits and a walk in the 5-4 loss to Washington. He took the loss and struck out just one batter.

Weaver needed 71 pitches Thursday and still didn't make it out of the fourth inning. His one strikeout was the lowest on the season but he still owns a solid 112:44 K:BB in 125.1 innings. Weaver has taken a loss in his last two starts and he'll look to end the skid in Los Angeles against the Dodgers next Tuesday.
