Jered Weaver picked up his 14th victory of the season on Sunday, surrendering just three runs on eight hits over his 6 2/3 innings of work.

Weaver racked up eight strikeouts on the evening without issuing a free pass. He held the A’s bats at bay through the first six frames, until Alberto Callaspo blasted a two-run homer and Andy Parrino added a solo shot. Weaver will carry a 14-7 record, 3.72 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 134/54 K/BB ratio into Friday’s matchup against these same Athletics in Anaheim.

Jered Weaver limited the Phillies to two runs on eight hits over six innings Wednesday in a 4-3 win.

The right-hander walked two and struck out five. Weaver really, really enjoys pitching against National League teams, going 10-1 with a 2.16 ERA in his last 18 starts since June 26, 2009. Overall, he improved to 13-7 with a 3.66 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. Weaver travels to Boston next time around.
Aug 14 - 1:06 AM

Jered Weaver allowed two runs on six hits over six innings in Sunday's win over the Rays.

Weaver was staked to a big lead and had little trouble with the sinking Rays en route to his 12th win. The right-hander walked four and struck out three along with his six hits allowed. Weaver will take a 3.59 ERA into Friday's start against another flailing team, the Red Sox.
Aug 3 - 7:04 PM

Jered Weaver was fortunate to go home with a no-decision, as he allowed six runs over five innings, but the Angels fell in 12 innings to the Orioles by a 7-6 margin.

Weaver had been pitching much better lately, allowing exactly two runs in each of his last three outings, but the Orioles were squaring him up well on Tuesday. The right-hander surrendered two home runs: a solo shot to Adam Jones, and a three-run shot to Nick Markakis. Overall, he yielded seven hits and walked four while striking out four. Now with a 3.62 ERA, a 1.16 WHIP, and a 114/42 K/BB ratio, Weaver will look to get back on track when he takes on the Rays in a road start on Sunday.
Jul 29 - 11:28 PM

Jered Weaver limited the Orioles to two runs on six hits over eight innings Wednesday in a 3-2 win.

He struck out six and walked zero. The Angels have won seven consecutive Weaver starts (with Weaver himself getting credit for four of those victories). The 31-year-old has encouragingly held the opposition in the ballpark in each of his last four starts, and six of his last seven. Weaver improves to 11-6 with a 3.36 ERA and 1.12 WHIP, numbers he'll take into a rematch with the Orioles on Tuesday.
Jul 24 - 1:10 AM

Jered Weaver limited the Rangers to two runs over seven innings Saturday in an Angels victory.

Weaver walked three but gave up only four hits, showing no ill effects from the back injury that forced him from his start Monday against the Blue Jays. He wraps up the first half of the 2014 regular season with a 10-6 record, 3.45 ERA, and 1.13 WHIP.
Jul 12 - 10:42 PM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia reiterated Thursday that Jered Weaver (back) is feeling "fine" and will be ready to go for Saturday's start versus the Rangers.

"He feels good today," the skipper added. Weaver exited his last outing on Monday with tightness in his lower back, but it sounds like the ailment is no longer a concern. The right-hander owns a 3.50 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 93/33 K/BB ratio in 118 1/3 innings this season for the Angels.
Jul 10 - 6:32 PM

Jered Weaver (back) is expected to make his next scheduled start Saturday against the Rangers.

Weaver made an early departure from his outing Monday against the Blue Jays with tightness in his lower back, but he played catch Tuesday and felt fine. The right-hander owns a 3.50 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 93/33 K/BB ratio in 118 1/3 innings this season for the Angels.
Jul 10 - 11:29 AM

Jered Weaver (back) played catch Tuesday and said he felt "a lot better."

Weaver left Monday's start against the Blue Jays with lower back tightness. His next scheduled start for this weekend remains up in the air, but obviously it's good news that he's improving. He'll need to throw his regular between-starts bullpen session before being cleared.
Jul 8 - 6:55 PM

Jered Weaver left Monday's start against the Blue Jays with lower back tightness.

Weaver had thrown two perfect frames but exited after warming up before the top of the third inning. He's likely considered day-to-day, but the Angels should provide an update on his status after the game. Matt Shoemaker, who threw 102 pitches last Thursday, relieved Weaver.
Jul 7 - 10:41 PM

Jered Weaver allowed five runs on nine hits over 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's nightcap against the White Sox, earning the win.

The White Sox pushed across four of the runs on two two-run homers, as Weaver has now allowed 16 home runs through 18 starts this year. On the plus side, he didn't walk a batter while striking out six. The ugly win leaves him with a respectable 9-6 record, 3.56 ERA and 1.16 WHIP on the season. He'll look for a better performance Sunday against the Astros.
Jul 2 - 12:16 AM

Jered Weaver pitched seven innings of one-run ball Thursday in a victory over the Twins.

Weaver had given up 14 homers among his 85 hits allowed this season, but none of the eight hits he allowed today left the yard (Joe Mauer's might have, but Mike Trout got a glove on it and turned it into a double). He's given up two runs over 15 innings in his last two starts to bring his ERA back down to 3.33. Despite the homers, he's been better than the Angels should have anticipated.
Jun 26 - 7:19 PM

Jered Weaver limited the Rangers to one run and four hits in eight innings in a no-decision Saturday.

Weaver exited with a one-run lead after 108 pitches, but Kevin Jepsen couldn't make it stand up. It was still one of Weaver's best outings of the season, and the first since May 11 in which he didn't give up a homer. He's 7-6 with a 3.47 ERA.
Jun 22 - 1:16 AM

Jered Weaver gave up four runs in six innings Monday in a loss to the Indians.

Weaver gave up two homers in this one, running his streak to seven straight starts of giving up a long ball. After an outstanding month of May in which he went 4-1 with a 1.98 ERA, he's 1-3 with a 5.79 ERA in June. He'll return home for a start against the Rangers next time out, making him a better play in mixed leagues.
