Angels manager Mike Scioscia indicated Friday that the team could utilize a three-man rotation in the American League Division Series.

Assuming Matt Shoemaker makes it back healthy, it would presumably be he, C.J. Wilson and Jered Weaver, with Weaver getting the call to work on short rest. Given the critical importance of those games and the uncertainty surrounding the rest of the rotation, it certainly seems like a viable strategy on the Halos end.

Jered Weaver has been scratched from Thursday's start against the Mariners.

It's not injury-related, as the Angels wrapped up the division Wednesday night and will give him a day to rest after the celebration. It will also allow them to line him up as they want for the postseason. Wade LeBlanc will start instead Thursday.

Jered Weaver won for the 17th time this season by limiting the Astros to one run in seven innings and striking out 12 on Saturday.

Weaver fell three strikeouts short of his career high, but it's just the third time in his career that he's gotten to 12 and the first time since April 6, 2012 that he's even reached double figures. He's previous season high was nine against the White Sox in June. Weaver ended up throwing 101 pitches, 76 of them strikes. Even though his home run and walk rates are up this year, he's the AL leader in wins and he has a 3.50 ERA.

Weaver's only major mistake was the two-run homer he surrendered to Lonnie Chisenhall in the bottom of the fifth. He'll carry a 16-8 record, 3.58 ERA, and 1.22 WHIP into his next start at home against the Astros.

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.

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).

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.

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