  • Yankees' Luke Weaver: Middling in final start of 2023

    Weaver (1-2) took the loss Thursday, allowing two runs on six hits and one walk over four innings against the Blue Jays. He struck out six.

    All of the damage against Weaver came via the long ball, with Daulton Varsho and Matt Chapman each tagging him for a solo homer. Though Weaver will finish the 2023 campaign with an ugly 6.40 ERA across 123.2 innings, he showed signs of progress after being added in mid-September by the Yankees, logging a 3.38 ERA and a 16:3 K:BB over three starts (13.1 innings) with the team.

  • Yankees' Luke Weaver: Blanks Arizona in Friday's win

    Weaver (3-5) picked up the win Friday, allowing four hits over 5.1 scoreless innings in a 7-1 victory over the Diamondbacks. He struck out three without walking a batter.

    The veteran right-hander tossed 52 of 78 pitches for strikes in his second straight impressive outing since being claimed off waivers from the Mariners. In two starts and 9.1 innings for the Yankees, Weaver has a 2.89 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 10:2 K:BB. He lines up for one more start before the end of the regular season, on the road next week in Toronto.

  • Yankees' Luke Weaver: Fans seven in Yankees debut

    Weaver did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing three runs on four hits and two walks over four innings against the Pirates. He struck out seven.

    Despite being claimed off waivers just four days prior, Weaver drew the start against Pittsburgh on Saturday and was serviceable. He limited the Pirates to just four hits, though one was a two-run homer by Bryan Reynolds in the first inning. Overall, Weaver owns an ugly 6.77 ERA on the season and shouldn't be considered in most leagues even if he remains part of the New York starting rotation.

  • Yankees' Luke Weaver: Could get weekend start

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Weaver could start a game this weekend in Pittsburgh, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    Weaver was claimed off waivers from the Mariners on Tuesday and officially joined the Yankees' active roster for the second half of Thursday's doubleheader in Boston. The 30-year-old right-hander has struggled to a 6.77 ERA in 110.1 major-league innings this season and should probably be ignored in the majority of fantasy leagues, regardless of his role.

  • Yankees' Luke Weaver: Lands with Yankees

    Weaver was claimed off waivers by the Yankees on Tuesday, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports.

    Weaver had been designated for assignment by the Mariners over the weekend. The right-hander has posted a 6.77 ERA and 93:37 K:BB over 110.1 innings covering 22 starts and four relief appearances in 2023 for the Reds and Mariners. It's not clear at this point whether the Yankees plan to use him as a starter or reliever, but he's almost surely not going to have any fantasy value in either role.

  • Mariners' Luke Weaver: Shaky in bulk relief role

    Weaver allowed four runs on four hits and two walks while striking out two over 4.1 innings Saturday against the Rays.

    The 30-year-old served in bulk relief Saturday after Trent Thornton completed the first two innings as Seattle's opener. Weaver inherited a 4-1 advantage, but surrendered two runs in the fifth and two more in the seventh to cough up the lead. He has primarily worked out of the bullpen since signing with the Mariners on Aug. 22, posting a 6.08 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 8:3 K:BB across five appearances (13.1 innings).

  • Mariners' Luke Weaver: Designated for assignment

    Weaver was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Sunday.

    Weaver gave up four earned runs over 4.1 innings of bulk relief Saturday against the Rays and has now been pushed off the 40-man roster. The 30-year-old right-hander carries an ugly 6.77 ERA in 110.1 total major-league innings this season between Cincinnati and Seattle.

  • Mariners' Luke Weaver: Working as bulk pitcher Saturday

    Weaver will serve as the Mariners' bulk reliever Saturday against the Rays, Daniel Kramer of reports.

    Seattle will use several different pitchers during the game, but Weaver should be able to offer 60-plus pitches at some point. The 30-year-old right-hander has primarily been a multi-inning bullpen arm for the Mariners since they signed him to a major-league deal in late August, but he threw 70 pitches in a spot start last week versus the Athletics.

  • Mariners' Luke Weaver: Struggles in spot start

    Weaver (2-5) allowed three runs on seven hits over 3.2 innings to take the loss Tuesday versus the Athletics. He did not strike out or walk a batter.

    Weaver got the nod on short notice after George Kirby (illness) was scratched from Tuesday's start. The Mariners' offense was rather listless, accumulating four hits and six walks but generating just one run in support of Weaver in his third appearance and first start with the team. In 2023, the right-hander has a 6.77 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 90:34 K:BB over 103.2 innings between the Mariners and the Reds. Barring any other issues with Seattle's usual starters, Weaver will likely return to a long-relief role going forward.

  • Mariners' Luke Weaver: Starting Tuesday

    Weaver will start Tuesday's game against the Athletics, Daniel Kramer of reports.

    George Kirby was originally slated to start Tuesday's contest but was scratched due to an illness, allowing Weaver to make his first start as a Mariner. Weaver accumulated a 6.87 ERA and 1.64 WHIP through 97 innings as a starter with Cincinnati, but he's been much more effective since signing with Seattle last week.

  • Mariners' Luke Weaver: Tabbed for long-relief role

    Weaver, who signed a major-league deal with the Mariners on Tuesday, will work in a long-relief role out of the bullpen, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    With Emerson Hancock (shoulder) done for the year, Weaver would likely be the next man up if the Mariners need a spot starter, but there aren't any plans to go to a six-man rotation. He had a 5.57 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 21 strikeouts in 21 innings over his last five outings for the Reds before they released him last week.

  • Mariners' Luke Weaver: Signed by Mariners

    Weaver was signed by the Mariners to a major-league contract and was added to the active roster Tuesday.

    Weaver was released by the Reds after he allowed four runs in two of his last three starts. Following the All-Star break, his ERA rose as high as 7.22 and currently sits at 6.87. The signing comes the same day Emerson Hancock was moved to the 60-day injured list with a right shoulder strain. The Mariners had planned on operating with a six-man rotation prior to Hancock's injury, so Weaver could slot into that spot or work as a long man out of the bullpen.

  • Luke Weaver: Dropped by Reds

    The Reds released Weaver on Friday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Weaver was designated for assignment Wednesday after putting up a 6.87 ERA and 1.64 WHIP through 97 innings across 21 starts, and he'll now look to secure a spot with another organization. Weaver's poor MLB track record might keep him from contributing in the majors, but he figures to have a decent shot at landing a minor-league deal elsewhere.

  • Reds' Luke Weaver: Cut from 40-man roster

    Weaver was designated for assignment by the Reds on Wednesday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    The Reds gave Weaver 21 starts this season even as he posted a 6.87 ERA. He will likely clear waivers and can elect free agency once that happens. Hunter Greene (hip) is expected to be ready to rejoin Cincinnati's rotation the next time Weaver's turn comes up this weekend.

  • Reds' Luke Weaver: Coughs up four runs

    Weaver yielded four runs on six hits and a walk over 3.2 innings during a Game 2 win in Sunday's doubleheader against Pittsburgh. He struck out seven and did not factor in the decision.

    The Pirates greeted Weaver with two runs in the first inning and he never really settled in Sunday. He's failed to complete at least five innings in six of his last seven starts, including his last three. During that stretch, he's produced a 7.24 ERA, driving his season number up to 6.87 through 97 frames. Weaver's next outing is projected to be at home against Toronto.

  • Reds' Luke Weaver: Lasts 4.1 innings in no-decision

    Weaver did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing a run on five hits and a walk over 4.1 innings in a 3-2 loss to the Marlins. He struck out six.

    Weaver wasn't bad Tuesday, though he was only able to make it through 4.1 innings on 89 pitches. The 29-year-old right-hander's made it through five innings just twice in his last 12 starts -- he's posted an ugly 7.97 ERA over that span (49.2 innings). Weaver is now 2-4 this season with a 6.75 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 78:33 K:BB across 20 starts (93.1 innings) this season. He's currently lined up for a road matchup with the Pirates in his next outing.

  • Reds' Luke Weaver: Can't contain Cubs

    Weaver (2-4) took the loss against the Cubs on Thursday, allowing four runs on four hits and four walks while striking out five batters over three-plus innings.

    Weaver's wildness was largely to blame for his poor outing, as he threw only 46 of 83 pitches for a strike and tied a season high with four free passes. Those four walks came in a span of five batters in the third frame, with the latter two each forcing in a run. Weaver was allowed to close out that inning but was given the hook after allowing a single to the first batter he faced in the fourth. The right-hander was solid in a quality start against the Dodgers his last time out, but he's been otherwise awful of late -- Thursday was the fourth time in his last five outings that he's given up at least three earned runs while going four of fewer frames. Weaver's season ERA now sits at an ugly 6.98, and it's fair to wonder if he'll be long for the rotation with Hunter Greene (hip) and Nick Lodolo (lower leg) both expected to return later this month.

  • Reds' Luke Weaver: Solid in Saturday's loss

    Weaver (2-3) allowed three runs (one earned) on two hits and two walks while striking out two over six innings to take the loss Saturday versus the Dodgers.

    Weaver turned in a fine performance, but a pair of Max Muncy home runs sent him to his first loss since May 1. Weaver earned his second quality start of the year with this effort. The right-hander is now at a 6.80 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 67:28 K:BB through 86 innings over 18 starts. He's projected for a road start versus the Cubs next week, but his poor numbers on the year could cost him his spot in the rotation if the Reds add starting pitching before Tuesday's trade deadline.

  • Reds' Luke Weaver: Lasts four innings against D-Backs

    Weaver did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing three runs on eight hits and two walks over four innings against the Diamondbacks. He struck out one.

    After being forced out of his last start after being struck in the left elbow by a comebacker, Weaver made his usual turn in the rotation Sunday and threw 79 pitches. Weaver held the Diamondbacks scoreless through his first four innings of work but gave up four consecutive hits, including a two-run homer to Corbin Carroll, to start the fifth and was immediately pulled from the contest. Sunday's outing marked Weaver's fourth straight start surrendering a home run while lasting fewer than five frames for the seventh time in his last nine starts. Over that latter stretch, Weaver owns an ugly 9.41 ERA and a 23:17 K:BB through 36.1 innings.
