Jered Weaver lasted just four innings Saturday, giving up six runs on seven hits in a loss to the Astros.
Weaver wasn't terribly effective against most of the lineup, but Evan Gattis especially gave Weaver fits, hitting two homers off the right-hander. The clunker actually came after a few strong outings from the 33-year-old, who fell to 8-8 with the loss. Weaver will carry a 5.32 ERA and 1.45 WHIP into Thursday's contest against the potent Red Sox offense. Jul 23 - 10:24 PM

Jered Weaver held the White Sox to one run over seven innings Sunday in an 8-1 victory for Anaheim.

Weaver also had a nice showing in his final start before the All-Star break, throwing six innings of one-run ball versus the Rays. It's amazing he can pull that off with a fastball that rarely touches 88 mph. Still, the veteran right-hander holds an unsightly 5.02 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 107 2/3 innings for the season.
Jul 17 - 6:38 PM

Jered Weaver held the Rays to one run in six innings in the Angels' 7-2 victory on Wednesday, striking out five, walking one and allowing only four hits.

Weaver is perhaps the softest thrower in baseball but he got the job done today. He is not having a good season as his 5.27 ERA and 1.44 WHIP prove, but he evened his record at 7-7 heading into the All Star break.
Jul 6 - 10:55 PM

Jered Weaver made the Hindenburg blush with his disaster of a performance in Wednesday's loss to the Astros, surrendering six runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Weaver struck out three and walked four on the afternoon. The Astros scored a run off him in the first and plated a pair in both the third and fifth innings before George Springer finished off the veteran with a solo home run in the sixth. Weaver's 5.51 ERA and 1.48 WHIP tell the story of his season well enough. A road start against the Rays shows next on his schedule.
Jun 29 - 7:34 PM

Jered Weaver was lifted after allowing four runs in 4 2/3 innings Friday against the A's.

Weaver hurled a shutout of the A's last weekend. This time, Oakland was ready for his 82-mph fastball, and he failed to last five innings for the third time this year. There's still not any fantasy potential here.
Jun 25 - 1:55 AM

Jered Weaver threw his first shutout of the season Sunday in the Angels' 2-0 defeat of the A's.

We didn't know he could still do that. Weaver yielded just three hits and a walk against one strikeout, needing only 95 pitches to complete nine scoreless frames. He induced 20 fly balls and seven grounders. The veteran right-hander still holds an ugly 5.10 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and 47/21 K/BB ratio in 84 2/3 innings for the year.
Jun 20 - 8:36 AM

Jered Weaver struggled in Monday's loss to the Twins, allowing six runs (five earned) on eight hits over six innings.

Weaver allowed runs to score in every inning but the second and fourth. He struck out four and walked two on the evening. The veteran right-hander shouldn't be considered a fantasy asset, even in deeper AL-only formats. He will carry a tough 5.71 ERA and 1.53 WHIP into a road start against the A's next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 14 - 1:22 AM

Jered Weaver gave up two homers and was knocked around for six earned runs in a loss to the Yankees on Wednesday night.

Weaver was taken deep twice on solo shots by Jacoby Ellsbury and Chris Parmelee. Weaver gave up nine hits and two walks while striking out only two Yankee batters. He hasn't been fooling anyone all season long as proven by his 5.56 ERA and 1.52 WHIP. Weaver falls to 5-5 on the season. He will make two starts next week (Twins and Athletics) but he is not a recommended streaming option.
Jun 8 - 11:36 PM

Jered Weaver gave up two runs in six innings in a 9-2 win over the Pirates on Friday.

Weaver gave up a pair of solo homers in the second inning, but otherwise kept the Angels off the board. The soft-tossing right-hander struck out five and walked one in the win. He’s up to 5-4 on the season, but owns a 5.18 ERA through 11 starts and has allowed 14 home runs in 64 1/3 innings. He can’t be trusted in mixed fantasy leagues these days.
Jun 3 - 11:01 PM

Jered Weaver allowed four runs over six innings in a loss to the Astros on Saturday.

Weaver matched Astros starter Dallas Keuchel through five innings, each pitcher allowing two runs, but a Jason Castro two-run home run in the sixth inning broke the tie and sealed Weaver's fate. The right-hander gave up six hits and walked three on the evening. Weaver's record fell to 4-4 with the loss, and he owns a 5.40 ERA and 1.51 WHIP through 10 starts. An interleague matchup with the Pirates is on tap for Friday.
May 29 - 1:04 AM

Jered Weaver delivered a strong performance in Sunday's victory over the Orioles, allowing just two runs on five hits over seven frames.

Weaver punched out six in the ballgame and walked only one. He kept the O's off the board until his final inning of work where Jonathan Schoop belted a two-run homer. Knowing that his fastball is among the worst in the game, Weaver threw primarily breaking balls the entire game on Sunday and the strategy paid off for him. It'll be interesting to see if he does the same on Saturday against the Astros.
May 22 - 8:26 PM

Jered Weaver pitched well enough in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers, surrendering four runs (three earned) on 10 hits over seven innings.

Weaver struck out two and walked two on the evening. He also surrendered a pair of gopher balls, with Joc Pederson whacking a two-run shot in the fourth and Corey Seager cracking a solo shot in the seventh. Even with Tuesday's relatively decent outing, the veteran Weaver still carries a 5.76 ERA and 1.61 WHIP. Up next on his schedule, a home showdown with the Orioles.
May 18 - 12:31 AM

Jered Weaver imploded in Thursday's loss to the Cardinals, surrendering eight runs on nine hits over four-plus innings.

Ouch. Weaver did strike out five without walking a batter, but that about ends the positive portion of his night. He surrendered three runs in the fourth inning, then coughed up five more to open the fifth. With the disastrous start under his belt, the veteran holds a 6.10 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 24/9 K/BB ratio over 38 1/3 innings. Do not venture near him for fantasy purposes. A road start against the Dodgers shows next on his schedule.
May 13 - 2:09 AM

Jered Weaver earned a no-decision in Saturday's loss to the Rays, yielding two runs (one earned) on six hits over six innings.

Weaver struck out five without walking a batter in what was just about as good of a start that you could ask for from the veteran at this point in his career. Both runs on his line came home when Steven Souza burned him for a two-run homer in the sixth inning. Weaver will carry a 4.72 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 19/9 K/BB ratio (over 34 1/3 innings) into his next scheduled start, a home date with the Cardinals. No fantasy intrigue here.
May 8 - 12:38 AM

Jered Weaver was pounded for seven runs and 11 hits in five innings Monday by the Brewers.

Weaver took his first loss after three victories. He hasn't been very good in either of his last two starts, and his ERA has jumped from 3.12 to 5.40. Maybe he'll hold his own going forward despite the extreme lack of velocity, but there just isn't anything here to help fantasy leaguers.
