  • Rays' Richard Lovelady: Rehab continuing at Triple-A

    Lovelady's (forearm) rehab assignment was transferred to Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, Steve Carney of StPeteNine.com reports.

    Lovelady made his first rehab appearance Monday with the Rays' Florida Complex League affiliate, but he yielded four runs over two-thirds of an inning before being pulled. Still, he'll be bumped up to Durham to continue his rehab from a strained left forearm.

The left-handed reliever has posted a 7.36 ERA and 1.36 WHIP across 7.1 innings with the Rays this season and appears poised for a return at the start of the second half.

    The Rays placed Lovelady on the 15-day injured list Saturday due to a left forearm flexor strain.

  • Rays' Richard Lovelady: Shipped to Tampa Bay

    The Cubs traded Lovelady to the Rays on Saturday in exchange for Jeff Belge.

    Lovelady was cast off the Cubs' 40-man roster Tuesday following the acquisition of Tyson Miller, but he will get another shot with a big-league club as he joins Tampa Bay. Lovelady hasn't found much success in the majors this season, allowing five earned runs across 5.2 innings since being selected from Triple-A in late April. Jacob Waguespack (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day IL in a corresponding move.

  • Cubs' Richard Lovelady: Contract selected

    The Cubs selected Lovelady's contract from Triple-Iowa on Sunday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The left-hander failed to make Chicago's season-opening roster but will join the big club a month into the season. Lovelady struggled out of the bullpen at Iowa with a 5.84 ERA and 1.90 WHIP, though he did have a 20:1 K:BB across 12.1 innings.

  • Cubs' Richard Lovelady: Fails to make cut

    The Cubs reassigned Lovelady to minor-league camp Thursday.

    Lovelady attended camp as a non-roster invitee after joining the Cubs on a minor-league deal over the winter. The right-hander logged a 4.63 ERA and 1.07 WHIP across 23.1 innings in 27 appearances out of Oakland's bullpen in 2023, but he fell short in his bid for a spot in the Cubs' Opening Day relief corps.

  • Cubs' Richard Lovelady: Signs MiLB deal with Cubs

    Lovelady signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Monday, Driveline Baseball reports.

    Lovelady had a throwing session at Driveline on Monday and came out of it with a deal from the Cubs. The left-handed reliever missed a chunk of the 2023 season with a strained forearm, but it would appear he is now healthy. Lovelady holds a career 5.26 ERA and 64:25 K:BB over 65 innings covering parts of four major-league seasons.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Outrighted to Triple-A

    The Athletics outrighted Lovelady (forearm) to Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday.

    Lovelady held a 4.63 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 24:10 K:BB through 23.1 innings of relief this season with the A's before missing the entire second half because of a severe left forearm strain. The 28-year-old southpaw is officially off the 40-man roster in Oakland, though he'll remain part of the organization for the time being.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Goes to 60-day IL

    The Athletics transferred Lovelady (forearm) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Wednesday.

    Lovelady's move to the 60-day IL was merely a formality after he had already been ruled out for the season with a strained left forearm. The transaction opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for left-hander Sean Newcomb, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Shut down for season

    Athletics manager Mark Kotsay announced Saturday that Lovelady (forearm) has been shut down for the remainder of the season, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Kotsay didn't provide any other information, but Lovelady's weekend visit with Dr. Neal ElAttrache apparently didn't yield encouraging news regarding the reliever's recovery from a strained left forearm. The 28-year-old reliever finishes the 2023 campaign with a 4.63 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 24:10 K:BB in 23.1 innings.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Undergoing further evaluation

    Lovelady is slated to undergo further evaluation on his injured forearm with Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles, the team's official site reports.

    The details surrounding Lovelady's forearm issues have been somewhat murky, and the fact he'll be undergoing further consultation suggests they may be a bit more complex than initially believed. The southpaw was placed on the injured list July 14, retroactive to July 11, and he remains shut down from throwing for the time being.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Back on IL

    Lovelady was placed on the 15-day injured list with an undisclosed injury Friday.

    He was just reinstated less than two weeks ago after missing time with an elbow strain, so his arm likely started barking again. Freddy Tarnok was recalled from Triple-A to take Lovelady's place on the active roster.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Back from injured list

    Lovelady (elbow) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Sunday.

    Lovelady landed on the shelf in mid-June with a left-elbow strain, but he spent just one day over the 15-day minimum on the IL. He's been a solid late-inning option for Oakland this year with four holds and a 3.86 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 20:10 K:BB across 21 innings.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Throws 20-pitch bullpen session

    Lovelady (elbow) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session before Tuesday's game versus the Yankees, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Lovelady has been on the 15-day injured list with a strain in his left elbow since June 16. The left-hander will likely need to throw a couple more sessions and may need a rehab assignment before having a chance to rejoin the Oakland bullpen in the early portion of July.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Placed on 15-day IL

    Oakland placed Lovelady on the 15-day injured list Friday with a left elbow strain.

    Lovelady suffered the injury while making a relief appearance Thursday against the Rays, and the Athletics have yet to project a recovery timeline. Chad Smith will join the A's bullpen in a corresponding move.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Pulled with apparent arm injury

    Lovelady was removed from Thursday's game against the Rays with an apparent left arm injury, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Lovelady was grabbing his left forearm after throwing a pitch and was instantly removed by trainers. The A's will take a look at him and should provide an official update relatively soon.

  • Athletics' Richard Lovelady: Could be in mix for saves

    Lovelady (0-3) allowed one earned run on a walk and no hits while striking out one across 0.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Mariners.

    Lovelady entered the game in the bottom of the eighth inning with the score knotted at 2-2. He retired two of the three batters he faced but was pulled for Garrett Acton, who was on the mound when the winning run crossed the plate. Lovelady began the season in the minors, but he has pitched well since being recalled, turning in 13 scoreless outings in 16 appearances. It's difficult to decipher the Athletics bullpen due to their lack of wins and standout talent, but Lovelady could see some save chances moving forward -- particularly while Zach Jackson (elbow) is sidelined.
