Jered Weaver lucked into a win on Tuesday against the Tigers, as he yielded six runs in 5 2/3 innings.

The Angels scored four times in the first inning. Weaver gave it all back in the third when the Tigers plated four runs, three of which came in on a Miguel Cabrera double. James McCann hit a two-run home run in the sixth. Overall, Weaver gave up seven hits, walked none, and struck out one. He had been solid since returning from the disabled list before Tuesday's hiccup. On the season, Weaver has a 4.59 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP, and a 65/18 K/BB ratio over 119 2/3 innings. He'll take on the Indians in a road match-up next.
Aug 25 - 11:27 PM

Jered Weaver was effective and efficient in Wednesday's win over the White Sox, firing 6 1/3 innings of shutout ball.

Weaver scattered five hits while striking out five. He did not issue a walk on the night. In three starts since returning from the disabled list, he's allowed five runs on 13 hits across 17 1/3 innings. The 33-year-old right-hander no longer cracks 90 mph with his fastball, but he seems to be learning to pitch effectively with diminished stuff. The owner of a 4.34 ERA and 1.18 WHIP, Weaver will head out on the road to face the Tigers in his next start.
Aug 20 - 1:06 AM

Jered Weaver provided a quality start in Friday's loss to the Royals, allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits over six innings.

This was Weaver's second start since returning from the disabled list. He had missed over a month-and-a-half with a hip injury. On Friday, he struck out three and walked two, with all three runs on his line scoring in the sixth inning. As he continues to work his way back into game form, he'll take a 4.60 ERA and 1.21 WHIP into his next start, a home outing against the White Sox.
Aug 15 - 12:34 AM

Jered Weaver pitched decently in earning a no-decision against the Orioles on Sunday, allowing two runs on four hits over five innings.

Weaver was making his first start in over a month and a half, as he had been rehabbing from a hip injury. He struck out seven without walking a batter. Both runs on his line scored in the first inning, courtesy of an RBI single by Matt Wieters and an RBI double by Jonathan Schoop. Weaver pitched well in his rehab outings, but he's returning to a 4.75 ERA over 96 2/3 innings and owners in AL-only leagues shouldn't expect miracles. A road outing against the Royals awaits as the veteran right-hander tries to work his way back into form.
Aug 9 - 8:05 PM

Angels activated RHP Jered Weaver from the 15-day disabled list.

Weaver will rejoin the Angels' rotation on Sunday versus the Orioles. The right-hander pitched well in two rehab outings, but his velocity continues to plummet and he holds a 4.75 ERA in 96 2/3 innings this year, making him a sketchy prospect in fantasy leagues.
Aug 9 - 2:22 PM

Jered Weaver (hip) will return to the Angels starting rotation Sunday against the Orioles.

Weaver has missed the last month and a half with hip irritation. He posted a solid 1.92 ERA in two rehab starts for High-A Inland Empire. Weaver won his last start against the Orioles on May 15. Overall, he's 4-8 with a mediocre 4.75 ERA in 96 2/3 innings this year.
Aug 8 - 7:13 PM

Jered Weaver (hip) will be re-evaluated on Friday before a decision is made on whether to re-insert him into the Angels' rotation.

He's almost surely going to be cleared to return as long as his between-starts bullpen session goes off without a hitch. Weaver allowed three runs -- two earned -- over 5 2/3 innings in his second rehab start on Tuesday. He could rejoin the rotation as soon as Sunday, although the Angels might want until Tuesday to start him.
Aug 5 - 1:42 PM

Jered Weaver (hip) allowed three runs -- two earned -- over 5 2/3 innings for High-A Inland Empire on Tuesday in his second rehab start.

He struck out five but served up a couple home runs and was reportedly clocked around 83 mph with his fastball. Weaver got his pitch count up to 83 and his velocity likely will never return, so his showing was probably good enough to clear clear the way for his return to the Angels' rotation early next week.
Aug 5 - 11:03 AM

Jered Weaver (hip) will make another rehab start with High-A Inland Empire on Tuesday.

Weaver threw 63 pitches while allowing one unearned run over 3 2/3 innings for Inland Empire last Thursday in his first rehab outing. Tuesday's rehab start should be his final one before rejoin the Angels' rotation. Cory Rasmus is making a start Sunday and should get another one after that before giving way to Weaver.
Aug 2 - 2:36 PM

Jered Weaver (hip) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Inland Empire on Thursday.

Weaver's recovery from left hip irritation has dragged on a bit longer than expected, and with the Angels' rotation pitching so well they can afford to take their time. It's possible Thursday's rehab start will be the only one Weaver requires.
Jul 27 - 5:13 PM

Jered Weaver (hip) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Friday.

Weaver had hoped to return to the Angels rotation immediately following the All-Star break, but he has been slow to progress in his recovery from his left hip irritation. If everything goes well on Friday, he could be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment, where he'll likely make just one start before his return.
Jul 23 - 9:01 PM

Jered Weaver (hip) said he's "not yet" ready to return to the Angels' rotation.

"Not yet," Weaver said Wednesday, following a 60-pitch simulated game on Tuesday. "It's just not there yet." It was originally hoped Weaver could return to the Angels' rotation following the simulated game, but now it appears he'll need another sim game or a rehab start before returning. Either way, Tuesday was a step in the right direction and he seems to be close to a return.
Jul 22 - 11:14 PM

Jered Weaver (hip) could rejoin the Angels' rotation next week.

Weaver threw a successful 60-pitch simulated game on Tuesday. "The way he pitched today, that stuff is pretty much what we’ve seen Weave have," manager Mike Scioscia said. It's possible the Halos will have Weaver make a rehab start first, although from the way Scioscia is talking it sounds like he thinks the right-hander is ready to rejoin the big club's rotation.
Jul 22 - 10:11 AM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Monday that Jered Weaver (hip) is a "long shot" to pitch on Friday when the club needs another starter.

Weaver will throw a simulated game on Tuesday, and it appears that the Angels will either have him thrown an additional sim game after that or possibly make a rehab start. Nick Tropeano looks like the most likely candidate for a spot start on Friday.
