Lerew gets minors deal from A's


(11/23/2010) SP Anthony Lerew signed a minor league contract with Oakland on Tuesday. Lerew split 2010 between the Royals and their Triple-A affiliate in Omaha. He went 1-4 with an 8.54 ERA in six starts with Kansas City.

Lerew outrighted to Triple-A


(7/28/2010) Royals SP Anthony Lerew, who was ineffective before being designated for assignment on July 23, was assigned outright to Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday. He accepted the assignment.

Lerew a casualty of Royals' trade


(7/23/2010) The Royals designated SP Anthony Lerew for assignment on Friday. The move was made in order to create a spot for recently-acquired SP Sean O'Sullivan on the 25-man roster. O'Sullivan came to Kansas City from the Angels, along with minor league pitcher Will M. Smith, in a trade for 3B Alberto Callaspo on Thursday. Lerew went 1-4 with an 8.54 ERA in six starts with the Royals this season.

Lerew looking better for Sunday


(7/22/2010) The Kansas City Star reports that Royals SP Anthony Lerew (biceps, ribs) had a great bullpen session on Thursday and now appears more likely to be able to make his scheduled start on Sunday at the Yankees.

Lerew likely out for Sunday start


(7/21/2010) Anthony Lerew is not expected to make his next start for the Royals after getting injured in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays. Lerew bruised his right ribs and right biceps after being struck by an Edwin Encarnacion line drive in the second inning of the 13-1 defeat. No replacement option has been named yet. The Royals did say after the game Wednesday against Toronto that Lerew would be re-evaluated on Thursday, reports MLB.com. "To be quite honest with you, I don't see it happening," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "He's pretty sore. We'll just have to wait and see. He's day-to-day."

Lerew injured by line drive


(7/20/2010) Royals SP Anthony Lerew suffered bruises to his right ribs and right biceps and had to leave the game against the Blue Jays on Tuesday night after just 1 1/3 innings pitched. Edwin Encarnacion smacked a line drive off Lerew's midsection. The pitcher recovered, threw to first for the out but left the game shortly afterward. "Nothing is broken. It looks a lot worse than it is, especially the bicep," Lerew said. "The ribs hurt more than the bicep even though the bicep looks worse. I've never come out of a game from being hurt before. I knew it was going to hurt. It still hurts. I thought the ball may still be lodged in my ribs." Lerew was losing 3-0 at the time of his departure and ultimately allowed four runs on three hits and two walks over his 1 1/3. He struck out two and served up a two-run homer to Jose Bautista before leaving as he fell to 1-4 on the season with the defeat. Lerew was struggling before leaving and threw 41 pitches, 25 going for strikes. His ERA is at 8.54 on the year.

Lerew gets throttled in spot start


(7/11/2010) Royals SP Anthony Lerew, who was making a spot start for Zack Greinke (shoulder), allowed eight runs on nine hits with one walk and no strikeouts in 2 2/3 innings Sunday at the White Sox, suffering his second straight defeat. He allowed six runs in five innings in his last start July 4 at the Angels.

Lerew makes final start before break


(7/11/2010) Kansas City scratched Zack Greinke (shoulder) for his start on Sunday in Chicago. The Royals instead gave the start to Anthony Lerew. Lerew is 1-2 on the season over four starts with a 5.24 ERA.

Lerew apart of post-AS break rotation


(7/10/2010) According to MLB.com, the Royals announced Saturday what their pitching rotation will look like after the All-Star break. Zack Greinke will start the first game back, July 16 against the A's, followed by Bruce Chen and Brian Bannister. When the team opens up a three-game series against the Blue Jays on July 19, they will send to the mound Kyle Davies and then Anthony Lerew before starting the rotation over again.

Lerew skipped right before break


(7/6/2010) Kansas City SP Anthony Lerew will be skipped in his next turn in the rotation, reports the Kansas City Star Tuesday. Lerew was going to start on Saturday in Chicago but instead will be skipped in favor of Brian Bannister. Zack Greinke will start on Sunday before the All-Star break.

Lerew comes back down to earth


(7/5/2010) Royals SP Anthony Lerew, who allowed one run in six innings in his last start Monday against the White Sox, wasn't nearly as effective Sunday at the Angels. He allowed six runs on six hits with two walks and three strikeouts in five innings, taking the loss.

Lerew notches first major-league win


(6/28/2010) This win was a long time coming for Anthony Lerew. The Kansas City Royals' rookie right-hander earned his first major league victory Monday night, throwing six solid innings in a 3-1 win over the Chicago White Sox. Lerew has been pitching professionally 10 years and had to overcome Tommy John surgery in 2008. "I've been waiting for this day forever," he said. "It's finally good to have it happen. I definitely have gray hairs. It's incredible." Lerew (1-1), making his eighth major league start and 17th appearance, allowed one run and three hits, struck out four and walked one. He helped lead the Royals to their fourth win in five games. "I definitely had that in the back of my mind the whole time, which wasn't a help," Lerew said of the elusive victory. "I made it a lot more work than it should have been, the added pressure on me."

Lerew still without a victory


(6/22/2010) Royals SP Anthony Lerew allowed four runs and 10 hits in 5 1/3 innings on Tuesday against the Washington Nationals and lost to fall to 0-1 on the season. The right-hander, who had Tommy John surgery in 2007, is still searching for his first major league win after seven career starts. Lerew walked one and struck out two, allowing two home runs to the Nationals in the process. His ERA is at 4.76 on the season.

Lerew effective vs. Astros


(6/18/2010) Royals SP Anthony Lerew pitched six innings on Thursday, allowing two runs off three hits against the Astros. The right-hander gave up a two-run double to Hunter Pence in the first inning for his only damage of the night. The early-game jitters out of the way, Lerew then fell into a rhythm, keeping the Astros unsettled with his cha-cha-quick footwork and syrupy off-speed pitches. "A little nervous at first, but once I settled in and kept the ball down it went well," Lerew said. Lerew struck out five over the next three innings and didn't allow another hit until Kevin Cash's soft, one-out single in the fifth. Lerew, who matched a career high with seven strikeouts, got the start after Luke Hochevar was placed on the disabled list with a strained elbow.

Lerew to fill in for Hochevar


(6/16/2010) Royals SP Anthony Lerew has been called up to replace the injured Luke Hochevar (sprained elbow) in the rotation, starting on Thursday.

Lerew fails to make cut


(4/4/2010) The Royals have designated SP Anthony Lerew for assignment. He was in contention for one of the last two available spots in the Kansas City bullpen.

Lerew has quality start at Yankees


(9/29/2009) Royals SP Anthony Lerew, making his second start since joining the team, had a quality start at the Yankees on Tuesday. He allowed two runs on five hits with two walks and three strikeouts in six innings. He didn't factor in the decision.

Lerew to get start Thursday


(9/23/2009) The Royals have selected the contract of right-hander Anthony Lerew from Double-A Northwest Arkansas and activated righty Juan Cruz from the DL. The Royals also placed left-hander Bruce Chen on the 60-day disabled list with a torn left oblique muscle. The 26-year-old Lerew was called up to start Thursday against Boston with Kyle Davies (shoulder) and Dusty Hughes (elbow) still not healthy enough to pitch. Lerew was 10-6 with a 4.09 ERA in 27 starts for the Naturals. Cruz has been out since Aug. 6 with a shoulder strain. He is 3-4 with a 6.17 ERA and is expected to be available for Thursday's game. Chen was 1-6 with a 5.78 ERA in 17 games, including nine starts.

Royals considering SP Lerew?


(9/22/2009) From The Sports Xchange notes: The Royals' starter for the Thursday game against the Red Sox to end the four-game series remains a big fat question mark. Kyle Davies is doubtful with a strained oblique muscle that caused him to miss his start Saturday. So is rookie Dusty Hughes, who replaced Davies in the rotation in the Saturday loss to the White Sox. Hughes exited that start in the fifth inning at Chicago with nerve irritation in his left elbow. Hughes will throw Tuesday to see how his elbow responds, but after having "Tommy John" surgery in 2005 and missing the entire 2006 season, neither Hughes nor the Royals want to push the issue. Royals manager Trey Hillman is looking into other possibilities besides Hughes, who he labeled as doubtful for Thursday. That includes an assortment of relief pitchers. Hillman said there are "other possibilities as well." One possibility is Anthony Lerew, who was 10-6 with a 4.09 ERA in 27 starts with Double-A Northwest Arkansas. Lerew went 6-2 with a 2.42 ERA in his final 10 regular-season starts and won two more games in the Texas League playoffs. Lerew, 27, pitched in 11 games, including three starts, in 2005-07 with Atlanta, going 0-2 with an 8.31 ERA.
