Luke Weaver wasn’t at his best in a losing effort against the Blue Jays on Thursday, giving up two runs on six hits over his four innings of work.
On the plus side, the right-hander racked up six strikeouts on the night while issuing only one base on balls. All of the damage done against him came via the long ball — with Daulton Varsho slugging a solo homer in the third inning and Matt Chapman belting one of his own in the fourth. Weaver got nine swings and misses on 77 pitches on the night, registering a CSW of 25 percent. The 30-year-old hurler finishes the 2023 season with a 3-6 record, 6.40 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and a 109/40 K/BB ratio over 123 2/3 innings in 29 appearances (25 starts) between the Reds, Mariners and Yankees.
