Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Having follow-up MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver (elbow) will undergo another MRI next week to assess his recovery, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Weaver has started throwing and is playing catch out to 75 feet. Next week's MRI should give a clearer indication of his potential return to the rotation. The right-hander landed on the injured list in late May and will likely need at least two rehab starts.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Initiates throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver (elbow) has begun a throwing program, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Weaver, who is throwing out to 60 feet, is in the early stages of his rehab. He's been sidelined since the end of May with a mild flexor pronator strain and a minor UCL sprain. The Diamondbacks have not provided a timetable, but with Weaver just now starting to throw, early-to-mid August would be the earliest.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Follow-up MRI shows improvement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

A follow-up MRI on Weaver's elbow showed improvement, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Weaver has been sidelined since the end of May with a mild flexor pronator strain and a minor UCL sprain. While the right-hander has shown improvement, it remains to be seen when he'll be able to resume a throwing program, leaving Weaver without a timetable for his return.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Opts for conservative treatment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver has been diagnosed with a mild flexor pronator strain and a minor UCL sprain, and he'll be "treated conservatively," Richard Morin of The Arizona Republic reports.

The fact that Weaver has opted for conservative treatment means he won't be going under the knife, though the Diamondbacks also haven't released a timetable for when he could resume throwing. The team should reveal more information once the right-hander is cleared to begin a throwing program.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Seeking second opinion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver has been diagnosed with a right forearm strain and will seek a second opinion, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

Weaver was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday after leaving Sunday's start with a forearm injury. It remains to be seen how much time he'll miss while on the shelf, but he's headed for a second opinion to determine the next step in his recovery process. Manager Torey Lovullo is "very hopeful" that Weaver will be able to avoid a surgical procedure of any sort, per Piecoro.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Headed to the IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver (forearm) was placed on the injured list Monday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

Weaver exited Sunday's start in the sixth inning after stating he felt something "a little abnormal" after throwing a changeup. It's unclear how long he'll remain sidelined, though he is undergoing an MRI on Monday. Any absence will be unfortunate for the 25-year-old, as he had been experiencing a resurgent campaign by posting a 3.03 ERA and 1.11 WHIP across 62.1 innings.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Earns win before departing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver (4-3) earned the win in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Giants before leaving the game with a forearm injury.

Weaver, who is the midst of a breakout season, told Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic that something he felt was "a little abnormal" after throwing a changeup in the sixth inning and decided to leave the game with Arizona up by five runs. He and the Diamondbacks are downplaying the injury with manager Torey Lovullo making no assurances an MRI is even needed. Still, the team will investigate the injury and more details should follow. The Diamondbacks do not have the luxury of getting by with four starters for a stretch and will need to make a decision before Weaver's next scheduled start Friday at home against the Mets.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Nursing forearm tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver left Sunday's game against San Francisco due to right forearm tightness, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

Weaver is likely headed for further testing to determine whether he'll require a trip to the 10-day injured list. If he's forced to miss time, Zack Godley, who was recently shifted from the starting rotation to the bullpen, could be a candidate to fill in.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Leaves with trainer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver walked off the field in the sixth inning of Sunday's game against the Giants with the team trainer after suffering an apparent injury. He allowed one run on six hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings prior to exiting.

The location and extent of Weaver's injury are unknown at this point. He'll be considered day-to-day until further notice.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Hard-luck loser
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver (3-3) allowed two runs on four hits while striking out seven over six innings in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Padres.

Weaver kept the Padres' bats quiet most of the night before Greg Garcia's two-out single was followed by Fanmil Reyes' two-run home run in the sixth inning. That was all the damage he allowed, but it was enough for his third loss of the season. The silver lining is that he lowered his ERA to 3.14 and continues to average more than one strikeout per inning (62 Ks, 57.1 IP). Weaver will make his second start of the week Saturday on the road against San Francisco.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Yields three runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver (3-2) allowed three runs on seven hits with five strikeouts and two walks across six innings while taking a loss against the Pirates on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old didn't pitch poorly, but his counterpart, Joe Musgrove, was absolutely on point. Weaver has been very reliable this season, as this was his fourth straight quality start and fifth of the season. He is 3-2 with a 3.16 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 55 strikeouts in 51.1 innings this year. Weaver will start next at San Diego on Monday.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Fans six in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver threw seven innings in a no-decision against the Braves on Thursday, giving up one earned run on three hits in a 3-2 extra-inning win for the Diamondbacks. He struck out six and walked two.

Weaver was unfortunate not to get the victory, as he was able to three-hit the Diamondbacks over his seven frames before exiting after 104 pitches. He's off to a great start to the season, as this outing gives him a 2.98 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP over 45.1 innings. He'll take on the Pirates at home in his next start Tuesday.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Fans eight in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver (3-1) fired seven innings Saturday, yielding one run on three hits and a walk while striking out eight and earning the win over Colorado.

Weaver retired the first nine batters to start the contest before allowing back-to-back doubles to Charlie Blackmon and Trevor Story in the fourth frame. In 38.1 innings, the first-year Diamondback owns a stellar 44:8 K:BB alongside a 3.29 ERA. Weaver will take on the Braves at home next Thursday.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Allows three runs in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver yielded three runs on six hits and a walk across 4.1 innings in Sunday's extra-innings loss against the Cubs. He struck out five and allowed two homers in the no-decision.

Weaver gave up long balls to Kris Bryant and Willson Contreras, eventually leaving with a 3-0 deficit. It was a disappointing ending to a strong April for the 25-year-old. Prior to Sunday's outing, he posted a 2.38 ERA and 28:4 K:BB in 22.2 innings this month. He'll look to get back in the win column in Colorado on Saturday.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Strikes out seven in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver (2-1) allowed one run on six hits with seven strikeouts and one walk across 6.1 innings during a victory against the Pirates on Tuesday.

Since an average-at-best start to the year, Weaver owns a 1.53 ERA in his last three outings. During that stretch, he has 24 strikeouts in 17.2 innings. Overall, he is 2-1 with a 3.33 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 31 punchouts in 27 frames. His next start will be home against the Cubs on Sunday.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Delivers five strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver (1-1) allowed four hits and one walk while striking out nine across five shutout innings to earn the win Thursday against the Braves.

Weaver was dominant during his Thursday afternoon start, allowing only one baserunner to reach scoring position in his five innings of work. Though it was a relatively short outing, he made the most of his day by whiffing nine batters on the strength of 17 called strikes and 16 swinging strikes. After a rocky season debut, Weaver has settled in for his last three outings to allow five earned runs across 16.1 frames while striking out 21 and walking three.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Drops decision to Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver (0-1) took the loss Friday, giving up two runs on five hits over 6.1 innings while striking out eight as Arizona fell 1-2 to San Diego.

The right-hander threw 62 of 92 pitches for strikes while delivering his first quality start of the season, but the D-backs only managed three hits off Chris Paddack and the Padres' bullpen. Weaver will carry a 5.17 ERA and sharp 15:4 K:BB through 15.2 innings into his next outing Thursday in Atlanta.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: No-decision against Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver didn't factor into the decision Saturday, giving up three runs on five hits and two walks over five innings while striking out four in a 5-4 win over the Red Sox.

The right-hander was in line for his first win of the season before Yoshihisa Hirano and Archie Bradley combined to give up the tying run in the seventh inning. Weaver was far from sharp, throwing 53 of 84 pitches for strikes and starting off less than half the batters he faced (10 of 21) with first-pitch strikes, but the performance was still an improvement on his last time out. He'll look to take another step forward Friday, at home against the Padres.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Takes no-decision in ugly outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks in 4.1 innings of work in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers. He struck out three and took the no-decision.

Weaver was a main piece of the trade that sent Paul Goldschmidt to the Cardinals, so this wasn't exactly the team debut that Arizona was hoping for. He got in trouble right off the bat, allowing three runs in the first and later a Cody Bellinger homer in the third. The 6-foot-2 righty will look to reverse his rough outing next weekend against San Diego.

Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Tosses six strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weaver (illness) allowed an unearned run on two hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings Monday against the White Sox.

Weaver returned to the mound without issue after missing his last scheduled start due to illness. He'll be ready to go for the start of the regular season after proving his health.
