  • Nationals' Derek Law: Records win Sunday

    Law (2-1) picked up the win in Sunday's comeback victory over the Marlins, pitching two scoreless innings and allowing two hits. He struck out three without walking a batter.

    Patrick Corbin got chased after coughing up seven runs (four earned) in four innings, but Law steadied the ship in the fifth and sixth and watched the Nationals offense come to life, erasing a 7-0 deficit. The 33-year-old right-hander remains in a low-leverage role, but he's pitched reasonable well to begin the season with a 3.00 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 19:6 K:BB through 18 innings.

  • Nationals' Derek Law: Added to roster

    The Nationals selected Law's contract from Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    Law made the team as a non-roster invitee after tossing 9.1 scoreless innings this spring. The 33-year-old reliever should operate in a middle-relief role for the Nats.

  • Nationals' Derek Law: Invited to Nationals' camp

    Law signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Wednesday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training, Robert Murray of reports.

    Law posted a 3.60 ERA and 1.38 WHIP through 55 innings with the Reds last season, yet the team opted to non-tender him in November. Now with the Nationals, Law has a strong chance to make the team's Opening Day bullpen and would likely serve in middle relief.

  • Derek Law: Cut loose by Reds

    Law was non-tendered by Cincinnati on Friday.

    Law posted a solid 3.60 ERA with 45 strikeouts over 55 innings this past year for the Reds, but they have opted to avoid paying him a raise in salary arbitration. The veteran reliever was projected to command around $1.4 million in 2024. He is now a free agent.

  • Reds' Derek Law: Notches second save

    Law gave up two hits in a scoreless ninth inning Saturday to record his second save of the season in a 3-2 win over the Mets.

    With Alexis Diaz having pitched three of the prior four days, Reds manager David Bell had to get creative to protect a late lead, and Fernando Cruz worked the seventh and eighth innings before handing the ball off to Law. The right-hander made things interesting, serving up singles to Daniel Vogelbach and Francisco Alvarez, but he got Pete Alonso to ground out to escape the jam. Law has been struggling lately, posting a 10.80 ERA and 2.52 WHIP over his last 10 appearances, and his last hold or save prior to Saturday came July 3, so he's unlikely to see regular high-leverage duty down the stretch.

  • Reds' Derek Law: Opening Thursday's contest

    Law will serve as the Reds' opening pitcher for Thursday's game against the Tigers, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Thursday's game will mark the third start of the season for Law, who probably won't more more than an inning or two before turning the game over to Ben Lively (illness), who is expected to operate as a primary pitcher out of the bullpen in his return from the COVID-19-related injured list. The 32-year-old righty has pitched to a 3.83 ERA and 1.44 WHIP across 49.1 innings for Cincinnati this season.

  • Reds' Derek Law: Saves bullpen in loss

    Law allowed one hit over 2.1 scoreless innings in Saturday's 7-3 loss to Washington.

    Law, who entered with the Reds down 6-0, ate up seven outs between the sixth and eighth innings. The right-hander has worked largely in middle relief for the Reds and has posted a 3.68 ERA in 14.2 innings since his return from the injured list in early July. Control has been an issue, as it has been throughout his career; Law's issued 20 free passes over 35.2 innings (5.0 BB/9) this season.

  • Reds' Derek Law: Makes return from IL

    The Reds reinstated Law (elbow) from the 15-day injured list Sunday.

    Law will rejoin the Reds ahead of their series finale against the Padres after he had been on the shelf for the past six weeks with a mild flexor mass strain. Cincinnati gave Law the green light to rejoin its bullpen after he struck out four batters over three scoreless innings across his three rehab appearances in the minors.

  • Reds' Derek Law: Moves rehab to Triple-A

    Law (elbow) had his rehab assignment transferred Wednesday to Triple-A Louisville.

    Law is one step away from returning to the Reds' bullpen following what has already been a five-week absence for a right elbow flexor mass strain. He had pitched to a 2.57 ERA in 21 innings for the Reds prior to the IL stint and worked a perfect rehab frame on 14 pitches this past Sunday at High-A Dayton.

  • Reds' Derek Law: Makes rehab appearance

    Law (elbow) began a rehab assignment with High-A Dayton on Sunday and struck out a batter over a perfect inning.

    Because Law has been on the shelf since May 19 with a right flexor mass sprain, he'll likely require additional tune-ups in the minors before the Reds are ready to welcome him back from the 15-day injured list. Prior to being deactivated, Law bagged three wins, two holds and one save over his 20 appearances while pitching to a 2.57 ERA and 1.48 WHIP across 21 innings.

  • Reds' Derek Law: Throws live bullpen session

    Law (elbow) threw a live bullpen session Wednesday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Law has been out since May 19 while nursing an elbow sprain, but he could be set to launch a rehab assignment in the near future. The reliever has produced a 2.57 ERA and 1.48 WHIP with 20 strikeouts over 21 innings spanning 20 appearances -- including two starts -- with the Reds this season.

  • Reds' Derek Law: Resting for 10 days

    Law has been diagnosed with a mild flexor mass strain and will rest for 10 days, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Elbow injuries are always a significant worry for any pitcher, but Law's seemingly could have been much worse. He'll still have to build back up after his rest period, however, so his absence will presumably extend beyond the minimum 15 days.

  • Reds' Derek Law: Lands on IL with elbow sprain

    Cincinnati placed Law on the 15-day injured list Friday, retroactive to May 17, with a right elbow sprain.

    Law has delivered an impressive 2.57 ERA through 21 innings this season, at times working as an opener, so this is a fairly significant blow to the Reds' staff. It's unclear how long he might be sidelined.

  • Reds' Derek Law: Opening another game

    Law will be used as an opener again Saturday against the Marlins, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Nick Lodolo was expected to start but was scratched due to a sore calf, so it will be Law on the mound to start and potentially Levi Stoudt who handles the bulk of the innings. Law also opened Thursday's game against the Mets, throwing 1.1 scoreless innings with a walk and a strikeout.

  • Reds' Derek Law: To work as opener Thursday

    Law will work as the Reds' opening pitcher Thursday against the Mets, Mark Sheldon of reports.

    Law has a 3.00 ERA and 1.50 WHIP with 18 strikeouts in 18 innings this season. He has recorded four or more outs in five of his 17 appearances. Ben Lively will likely work as the primary pitcher after Law covers an inning or two, per Sheldon.

  • Reds' Derek Law: Falls to 0-2

    Law (0-2) was charged with a loss and a blown save against Atlanta on Monday. He did not record an out.

    The 32-year-old had the chance to save a 4-3 game in the 10th inning but promptly gave up a two-run shot to Sean Murphy on his first pitch. Law had a save and a hold through three scoreless appearances but has now been tagged with four runs and a pair of losses in his last two games. Alexis Diaz pitched a scoreless ninth inning Monday.

  • Reds' Derek Law: Earns save with Diaz unavailable

    Law picked up the save in Monday's 7-6 win over the Cubs. He allowed two hits in one scoreless inning without a walk or a strikeout.

    Alexis Diaz was unavailable after pitching the prior two days, so Law stepped in to close out Monday's victory. The right-hander was the last of six Reds relievers to appear in the game behind starter Connor Overton. It was Law's first save since 2019, and while he's not the most dominant pitcher in terms of strikeouts, Law is the most experienced arm in the Cincinnati bullpen.

  • Reds' Derek Law: Added to Opening Day roster

    The Reds selected Law's contract Thursday.

    Law won an Opening Day bullpen spot in Cincinnati and could quickly rise into a prominent setup role. Alexis Diaz is of course the clear frontrunner for saves.

  • Reds' Derek Law: Pitches way on to Opening Day squad

    The Reds informed Law on Sunday that he has won a spot on the Opening Day roster, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Since Law had been attending big-league camp as a non-roster invitee, the Reds will have to open up room for him on the 40-man roster prior to Thursday's season opener versus the Pirates. The 32-year-old journeyman right-hander likely entered spring training on the outside looking in for a spot in Cincinnati's Opening Day bullpen, but he earned a roster berth after striking out 10 while churning out a 1.23 ERA and 0.68 WHIP in 7.1 innings. Law may start the season in a middle-relief role, but if he carries over his strong run of form from spring training into April, he could quickly settle in as one of the top setup men for closer Alexis Diaz.
