  • Yankees' Luke Weaver: Extends scoreless innings streak

    Weaver struck out three batters, walked one and gave up two hits over two scoreless innings in relief in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Twins.

    Weaver covered the seventh and eighth frames Wednesday, allowing a single in each inning but keeping the Twins off the scoreboard. The veteran right-hander has gone 17.1 frames without giving up an earned run, lowering his season ERA to 2.25 in the process. Weaver has posted an outstanding 30:5 K:BB across 28 innings on the season and has tallied the first five holds of his career after spending most of his previous eight campaigns as a starter.

  • Yankees' Luke Weaver: Covers 3.1 innings Wednesday

    Weaver (neck) struck out two over 3.1 scoreless innings Wednesday in the Yankees' 12-0 win over the Pirates in Grapefruit League play. He scattered two hits and one walk.

    Weaver was making his first spring appearance since March 7, after a stiff neck had kept him from pitching for nearly two weeks. He took on his biggest workload of the spring in terms of innings (3.1) and pitches (50) in his return and turned in excellent numbers to bolster his case for winning a spot in the Yankees' Opening Day rotation. Weaver appeared poised for a long-relief role heading into spring training, but a rotation spot opened up when Gerrit Cole (elbow) succumbed to an injury that could entail a multi-month recovery.

  • Yankees' Luke Weaver: Slated for live BP

    Weaver (neck) will throw live batting practice Wednesday, Max Goodman of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Weaver had to be scratched from a scheduled Grapefruit League start Tuesday due to neck stiffness, but he's expected to be fine. The right-hander might be needed for some starts early on in the season for the Yankees due to Gerrit Cole's (elbow) status being uncertain.

  • Yankees' Luke Weaver: Scratched with stiff neck

    Weaver has been scratched from Tuesday's scheduled start versus the Blue Jays due to a stiff neck, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    Dennis Santana will take the ball instead. Weaver -- who is slated for a long-relief role in 2024 -- should be considered day-to-day.

  • Yankees' Luke Weaver: Signs with Yankees

    Weaver signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Yankees on Thursday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Weaver bounced around between the Reds, Mariners and Yankees last season with limited overall success. However, he logged a 3.38 ERA and 1.27 WHIP through 13.1 innings with New York, so the Yankees will bring Weaver back as a potential option at the back end of the rotation.

  • 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 MLB.com 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 MLB.com 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 MLB.com 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.
