  • Red Sox's Lucas Luetge: Headed to Triple-A

    Luetge is set to open the season at Triple-A Worcester after being informed over the weekend that he won't be included on Boston's Opening Day roster, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republic reports.

    Fellow non-roster invitee Joely Rodriguez ended up beating out Luetge for the final lefty reliever spot in the Red Sox's Opening Day bullpen. Though Luetge's minor-league deal with Boston contained an upward mobility clause that would allow him to opt out of his contract, the deadline for him to invoke the clause has passed, so he'll report to Worcester. Luetge had most recently spent the 2023 season in Atlanta's organization, logging a 7.24 ERA and 1.76 WHIP over 13.2 innings with the big club.

  • Red Sox's Lucas Luetge: Joins Red Sox organization

    Luetge announced Saturday via social media that he agreed to a minor-league contract with the Red Sox.

    Luetge didn't disclose the details of his contract, but it presumably includes an invitation to big-league spring training. The 36-year-old made 12 appearances at the big-league level for Atlanta in 2023, posting a 7.24 ERA and 1.76 WHIP over 13.2 innings. He was pushed off the 40-man roster on two occasions and ended up closing the season at Triple-A Gwinnett, with whom he compiled a 3.75 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 24 innings.

  • Braves' Lucas Luetge: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Luetge was outrighted Thursday to Triple-A Gwinnett, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Luetge passed through waivers unclaimed after being designated for assignment by Atlanta on Tuesday. The 36-year-old left-hander had struggled to a 7.24 ERA in 13.2 major-league innings this season.

  • Braves' Lucas Luetge: Pushed off 40-man roster

    Luetge was designated for assignment by Atlanta on Tuesday.

    Jesse Chavez (shin) is back from the 60-day injured list to fill the vacated 40-man roster spot. Luetge, 36, has surrendered 11 earned runs in 13.2 innings of relief this season at the major-league level.

  • Braves' Lucas Luetge: Returns to majors

    Atlanta selected Luetge's contract from Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.

    Atlanta is in need of a fresh bullpen arm after their pitching staff was bludgeoned for 36 runs over the weekend in Miami in a three-game sweep at the hands of the Marlins. Luetge holds an 8.49 ERA over 11 relief appearances in the big leagues this season.

  • Braves' Lucas Luetge: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Luetge cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    He's no longer on Atlanta's 40-man roster but it appears Luetge will remain in the organization. The southpaw holds an 8.49 ERA over 11 relief appearances in the big leagues this season.

  • Braves' Lucas Luetge: Loses 40-man roster spot

    Luetge was designated for assignment by Atlanta on Monday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    The team needed to clear a spot on the 40-man and 26-man rosters for the addition of Pierce Johnson. It's the second time since late May that Luetge has been removed from the 40-man roster. If he clears waivers, he has the ability to elect free agency.

  • Braves' Lucas Luetge: Selected to majors

    Atlanta selected Luetge's contract from Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.

    Luetge was sent outright to Triple-A in early June and has since put up a 3.72 ERA and 1.14 WHIP across 9.2 frames. The 36-year-old lefty hasn't done well in the majors this season, but his positive results in the minors and an injury to Nick Anderson (shoulder) will get him another shot to serve as a depth piece in Atlanta's bullpen. Roddery Munoz was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

  • Braves' Lucas Luetge: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Luetge cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.

    Luetge lost his spot on the 40-man roster after nine ineffective relief appearances, but he will remain in the organization. The veteran left-hander will try to get back on track with Gwinnett.

  • Braves' Lucas Luetge: Designated for assignment

    Luetge was designated for assignment by Atlanta on Tuesday.

    This move clears out space on both the 26-man and 40-man rosters for young right-hander AJ Smith-Shawver, who is joining Atlanta's bullpen ahead of Tuesday night's game against the Athletics. Luetge had yielded 11 earned runs through 9.2 innings this season with the NL East leaders.

  • Braves' Lucas Luetge: Activated from IL

    Luetge (biceps) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Friday.

    Left bicep inflammation forced Luetge to the injured list April 17, but he is now ready to return to Atlanta's bullpen. The 36-year-old looked rather unimpressive prior to his injury, surrendering six earned runs in 6.2 frames across five appearances. However, Luetge struck out three batters over 1.2 scoreless innings during his lone rehab outing with Double-A Mississippi, so perhaps he can return to form quickly.

  • Braves' Lucas Luetge: Set for rehab assignment

    Luetge (biceps) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Mississippi on Tuesday.

    Luetge has been sidelined for the last month with left biceps inflammation but has been cleared to test things out in game action. He figures to need at least a couple rehab appearances before rejoining Atlanta's bullpen.

  • Braves' Lucas Luetge: Hits IL with bicep injury

    Atlanta placed Luetge on the 15-day injured list Monday with left bicep inflammation.

    So long as Luetge's injury isn't anything more than the minor inflammation and he's able to resume throwing within a few days, he should be in store for a brief stint on the shelf. He had given up at least one run in all but one of his five relief appearances on the campaign, pitching to a 8.10 ERA and 1.80 WHIP across 6.2 frames.

  • Braves' Lucas Luetge: Snags win in opener

    Luetge (1-0) picked up the win Opening Day against the Nationals, allowing one run on two hits over one inning of relief.

    The southpaw replaced Max Fried (hamstring) in the fourth inning with Atlanta ahead 4-1, and the Nats never came close to tying the score. Luetge is expected to begin the season in middle relief -- even with Raisel Iglesias (shoulder) on the shelf, A.J. Minter and potentially Dylan Lee are still ahead of Luetge on the depth chart from the left side. Atlanta's offense is potent enough that Luetge could vulture some wins, something the 36-year-old did eight times over the last two seasons with the Yankees.

  • Braves' Lucas Luetge: Clean outing Thursday

    Luetge struck out one in a perfect eighth inning during Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets.

    A.J. Minter worked the ninth, as manager Brian Snitker perhaps offered a preview of how he intends to deploy his bullpen lefties while Raisel Iglesias (shoulder) is on the shelf. Luetge, who has a 7:1 K:BB this spring through 5.2 innings, posted strong numbers for the Yankees the last two seasons in middle relief but managed only nine holds in 107 appearances. He could wind up seeing more high-leverage work for Atlanta in 2023.

  • Braves' Lucas Luetge: Gets $1.55 million from Atlanta

    Luetge signed a one-year, $1.55 million contract with Atlanta on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Luetge was just picked up via trade from the Yankees a couple weeks ago. The left-hander holds a 2.71 ERA over the last two seasons and is expected to fill a middle-relief role.

  • Braves' Lucas Luetge: Shipped to Atlanta

    Luetge was traded by the Yankees to Atlanta on Wednesday in exchange for Indigo Diaz and Caleb Durbin.

    After being designated for assignment by the Yankees last week, Luetge will get another chance to contribute to a major-league bullpen in Atlanta. Coming off the heels of a 2.67 ERA season through 57.1 innings, the veteran lefty has seemingly revived his career since joining the Yankees in 2021. However, Luetge will turn 36 in March, so it's worth wondering how long it will be before he starts to decline.

  • Yankees' Lucas Luetge: Designated for assignment

    Luetge was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Wednesday.

    Luetge has made 107 appearances for the Yankees over the last two seasons, and he posted a 2.71 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in 129.2 innings during that time. It's somewhat surprising to see him cast off the 40-man roster, but the move makes room for right-hander Tommy Kahnle. Although Luetge is heading into his age-36 season, it's possible he's claimed by another club.
