Lewicki (elbow) was sent outright to Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.
Lewicki was cast off the Diamondbacks' 40-man roster in order to free up space for prospects who need to be protected in advance of the Rule 5 draft. The 26-year-old righty is slated to miss the entire 2019 campaign after undergoing Tommy John surgery at the end of August.
Lewicki (elbow) was claimed off waivers by the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Lewicki is set to miss the entire 2019 campaign after undergoing Tommy John surgery at the end of August. The Diamondbacks will either need to carry him on their 40-man roster until the start of the season (when he can be transferred to the 60-day DL) or attempt to pass him through waivers as the Tigers did. The 26-year-old posted a 4.89 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 30:14 K:BB across 38.2 innings with the Tigers in 2018 prior to suffering the injury.
Lewicki (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Sunday.
The right-hander is already expected to miss the entire 2019 campaign after undergoing a second Tommy John surgery, so this move does nothing to change his short-term outlook. The move was simply made to clear a 40-man roster spot for veteran catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Toledo in a corresponding move. Look for Lewicki to return ahead of the 2020 season.
Manager Ron Gardenhire said Thursday that Lewicki (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery next week and miss the entire 2019 season, Evan Woodbery of MLive Media Group reports.
Lewicki was dealt with more unfortunate news after meeting with an elbow specialist in New York on Wednesday. Though an MRI last week revealed a bone spur but no additional damage, Lewicki continued to deal with discomfort which prompted him to visit Dr. Christopher Arnold, who operated on him during his first Tommy John surgery in high school. He is expected to make a full recovery by spring training in 2020.
Lewicki is scheduled to see an elbow specialist in New York on Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Lewicki is still experiencing pain in his right elbow, so he'll see Dr. Christopher Arnold -- who operated on him in high school -- for a second opinion on the injury. At the moment, the right-hander remains without a clear return timetable.
Lewicki underwent an MRI on Wednesday that confirmed a bone spur but no additional damage to the elbow, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Lewicki was put on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday morning, as the team cited "elbow inflammation" as the culprit. Though his MRI revealed a bone spur, Lewicki could potentially return after a minimum stay on the shelf if his elbow responds well to anti-inflammatories. It appears as though the club may turn to Ryan Carpenter for Saturday's start in Minnesota.
Lewicki was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with right elbow inflammation.
The move was made retroactive to Aug. 14, so Lewicki could potentially just miss one start (though a timeline has not yet been announced). Reliever Zac Reininger was recalled from Triple-A Toledo to fill Lewicki's place on the roster for the time being. The Tigers will likely have to make another move to bring in a starter to take Lewicki's place in the rotation Saturday against the Twins.
Lewicki did not factor into the decision in Monday's 9-5 win over the White Sox, as he allowed three earned runs on six hits over 4.2 innings. He walked three and struck out three.
Lewicki recently slid into the starting rotation when the team traded away Mike Fiers, and the 26-year-old righty looked mediocre in this outing. He has a 4.89 ERA for the season, and after posting a 6.10 mark in limited time at the MLB level last year, there isn't reason for optimism. However, Lewicki should stick in the rotation for now, with his next appearance scheduled for Saturday against the Twins on the road.
Lewicki will move into the Tigers' starting rotation, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Lewicki was recalled from the minors earlier this week following the trade of Mike Fiers and made a three-inning appearance as a reliever Wednesday. The Tigers have yet to officially announce his first start, but if he takes Jacob Turner's spot in the rotation -- who is now designated for assignment -- he lines up to pitch against the White Sox on Monday.
Lewicki allowed an earned run on three hits over three innings of relief work in Wednesday's loss to the Angels. He struck out five.
Lewicki, who was called up from Triple-A Toledo earlier in the day, pitched well in his return to the majors. The 26-year-old could slot into the rotation spot previously held by Mike Fiers, who was recently shipped to Oakland. Jacob Turner is also in the mix, but he struggled mightily in a start Tuesday, allowing seven runs (five earned) on six hits and a walk over just one inning of work.

Lewicki will likely take on a role in the Tigers bullpen upon his arrival, though he could potentially join the starting rotation after making a pair of spot starts for the big-league club this year. Over 11 appearances with Detroit, he's logged a 4.94 ERA and 1.61 WHIP.
Lewicki is one of the top candidates to replace Mike Fiers (shin), who was traded to the A's on Monday, in the Tigers' starting rotation, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Given Lewicki pitched for Triple-A Toledo on Friday, he may not be summoned to make Tuesday's start, though he appears to be the leading candidate to replace Fiers beyond that. The 26-year-old has already started a pair of games for the big club this season and owns a 4.67 ERA and 55:16 K:BB across 12 starts (61.2 innings) for the Mud Hens. Ryan Carpenter is also an option to enter the rotation should the Tigers choose to go with someone other than Lewicki.
Lewicki was optioned to Triple-A Toledo following the Tigers' 3-0 loss to the Rangers on Sunday.
Lewicki saw light usage out of the bullpen during his latest stint with Detroit, making just three appearances since being recalled from Toledo on June 22. He'll likely slot back into the Triple-A rotation and build his arm back up in the event the Tigers require a spot starter in the second half of the season.
Lewicki was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Friday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
The right-hander has eight games (two starts) with the Tigers this year but holds an uninspiring 4.18 ERA with 18 strikeouts, nine walks and a 1.61 WHIP. He'll work in low-leverage spots as a depth piece.

Lewicki made two starts while Jordan Zimmermann was out with an inujred shoulder and allowed five earned runs on 11 hits and four walks over just 8.2 innings. Zimmermann will make his return to the Tigers rotation Saturday, and he will take Lewicki's roster spot upon activation. Lewicki had some success in a swingman role and may be back, but seeing as he has options remaining, he was the most expendable player on the 25-man roster to make space for Zimmermann.
Lewicki (0-2) took the loss Sunday against the Indians, as he allowed three earned runs on six hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out four.
Lewicki was decent in this one, but with Corey Kluber locked in for Cleveland, his margin for error was slim as the Tigers mustered just two runs. With Jordan Zimmermann (shoulder) and Francisco Liriano (hamstring) set to return next week, Lewicki figures to get bumped from the rotation soon, though he possibly showed enough to earn another spot start the next time the need arises.
Lewicki will take the mound against the Indians on Sunday, Chris McCosky of the Detroit News reports.
Lewicki will make a second spot start after taking the loss in Boston on Tuesday, allowing four runs -- two earned -- off five hits and three walks in 3.2 innings. In all likelihood this will be his last start for the foreseeable future with Jordan Zimmermann (shoulder) and Francisco Liriano (hamstring) set to return near the end of next week.
Lewicki (0-1) took the loss in Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, allowing four runs (two earned) on five hits over 3.2 innings. He walked three and struck out two.
Lewicki has been pitching in relief for the Tigers but was thrust into starting duty with both Jordan Zimmermann (shoulder) and Francisco Liriano (hamstring) on the shelf. The 26-year-old got a tough assignment against a stacked Boston lineup at Fenway Park, so it wasn't too surprising to see him struggle a bit in his first big-league start of the season. Lewicki could still pick up another spot start with neither Liriano nor Zimmermann likely to return by the weekend.
Lewicki is listed as the Tigers' probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
The Tigers had the option of using Lewicki for Game 1 of their doubleheader Monday against the Yankees, but they will instead promote Drew VerHagen from Triple-A Toledo to fill that vacancy, leaving Lewicki to take the hill for the series opener in Boston. With neither Jordan Zimmermann (shoulder) nor Francisco Liriano (hamstring) seemingly in line to return by the upcoming weekend, one of Lewicki or VerHagen will likely pick up a second start. Lewicki posted unremarkable numbers (5.06 ERA, 1.53 WHIP in 32 frames) in a starting role for Toledo earlier this season, but has been effective in relief since joining the Tigers in mid-May, posting a 2.57 ERA and 1.29 WHIP and striking out 12 over 14 innings.
Lewicki will likely start either Monday against the Yankees or Tuesday in Boston, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
The Tigers are amid a stretch of 18 games in 17 days, with a doubleheader on tap against the Yankees on Monday, so Lewicki will likely get a spot start early next week, according to manager Ron Gardenhire. The 26-year-old righty has a 5.06 ERA in six starts at Triple-A this season, but his 3.29 FIP is much more respectable. He also has had success at preventing runs in the big leagues this year (3.60 ERA), but all 15 of his innings have come in a relief role.
