SP - ARI - IL60
Arizona pitcher Luke Weaver will miss at least one start after being placed on the 10-day IL following an early exit from his Monday night start. The injury is described to be a right shoulder strain.
The injury to Weaver is an addition to a long list of injured D'Backs this season. Pitcher Corbin Martin has been recalled to take Weaver's place. Weaver will hope to build upon a solid beginning of the season once he returns, sporting a 4.50 ERA with 38 strikeouts across 40 innings.
Luke Weaver will be placed on the 10-day IL after leaving his last start with shoulder discomfort.
Weaver had pitched decently this season, with a 4.50 ERA and 1.20 WHIP. Unfortunately, as is often the case with him, he was unable to avoid the injury bug. It's unclear how long he'll be out of action, but he's worth stashing only if you have a free IL spot and you play in a league with 15 teams or more. Corbin Martin will make his Diamondbacks debut in place of Weaver.
Luke Weaver left Sunday's game with right shoulder discomfort. Weaver pitched four scoreless innings with one hit, two walks, and three strikeouts before leaving.
Weaver hasn't allowed an earned run in his past 10.1 innings, but only lowered his ERA to 4.50 on the season. He's still a matchup-dependent streamer in 15-team leagues.
RHP Luke Weaver allowed one hit with two walks and three strikeouts over four innings in Sunday's loss to the Nationals. He left the game after four innings with right shoulder discomfort.
Weaver was pitching well over his first four innings, allowing one hit and two walks over 68 pitches. He didn't come back out for the fifth inning and the team revealed later that he exited early due to shoulder discomfort. It's unclear how serious the issue is as of now but you can expect him to miss his next start at the minimum. The team should provide an update soon.
RHP Luke Weaver picked up the win on Monday when he allowed four hits with six strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings in the D-Backs' 5-2 win over the Marlins.
Weaver allowed six earned to these same Marlins in his previous start but he got the better of them on Monday. This was one of his better starts all season but it only lowered his ERA to 5.00 with a 1.25 WHIP. He'll look to build on this stellar outing in his next start against the Nationals.
