Jered Weaver was in control in Saturday's start, holding the Giants scoreless over 5 1/3 innings.
Weaver looks ready for the regular season already. The right-hander yielded just four hits and a walk while striking out six on the afternoon. With the effort, he lowered his ERA to 1.69 over 16 innings and sports a 15/4 K/BB ratio as well. Weaver should provide plenty of fantasy value in 2015, especially if he can better the 3.59 ERA he posted last year. Mar 21 - 7:58 PM

Jered Weaver tossed five solid innings, allowing one run, in a start versus the Rangers on Monday.

Weaver allowed only one hit, a solo home run to Robinson Chirinos. Aside from that, the Rangers couldn't touch him as he issued no walks and struck out five. The right-hander, who led the league with 18 wins, is looking to improve on last season's 3.59 ERA.
Mar 16 - 7:31 PM

Jered Weaver struggled Wednesday facing the D'Backs, yielding two runs on five hits and two walks in three innings.

Weaver had allowed plenty of base runners but was able to escape three innings allowing only one run thanks to the D'Backs missing some opportunities. He started the fourth inning, gave up a lead-off home run to Brandon Drury, and was immediately pulled. Weaver, 32, led the league in wins last season with 18 but posted his highest ERA in six seasons at 3.59. However, he added weight over the winter in an attempt to become more durable throughout the season. If it works as intended, Weaver could rejoin the class of elite starting pitchers.
Mar 11 - 8:10 PM

Jered Weaver excelled in his Cactus League debut against the Rockies on Friday, scattering two hits and a walk over 2 2/3 scoreless innings.

The veteran right-hander struck out one on the afternoon. Weaver made a concerted effort to bulk up over the winter in an effort to remain strong through the final months of the season, reporting to camp at 224 pounds. If he improves upon his already terrific numbers from a season ago, he could deliver a substantial profit in fantasy leagues.
Mar 6 - 6:02 PM

Jered Weaver focused on bulking up over the winter in an effort to be stronger and have the ability to consistently pitch deeper into games in 2015.

Weaver pitched at a weight of 199 pounds in 2014 and currently sits at 224, which he says is about as high as it has ever been. The 32-year-old hurler logged 213 1/3 innings in 2014, but only lasted eight or more innings four times, and only averaged 6 1/3 innings over his final 12 starts.
Jan 25 - 8:05 PM

Jered Weaver pitched well but had to settle for a no-decision Thursday, yielding two runs over seven frames in a loss to the Royals.

Weaver struck out six, walked two and permitted just three hits. However, the Royals were able to scratch together single runs in the third on an Alcides Escobar RBI double and in the fifth on an Omar Infante sac fly. The Royals eventually won it in the 11th on a Mike Moustakas homer. Weaver threw 100 pitches in the outing but will likely come back to start on short rest in Game 4 if he'd needed.

Jered Weaver gave up four runs and three homers in six innings Friday in a loss to the Mariners.

That's not the kind of outing Weaver wanted headed into the postseason, but he still had a fine September overall to finish up 18-9 with a 3.59 ERA overall. He'll start Game 1 of the ALDS for the Angels.

Jered Weaver has been sent back to the Angels' team hotel because he's under the weather.

Weaver isn't scheduled to start again until Friday and should be fine by then, though they could choose to push him back. The Halos' ace boasts a 1.91 ERA over his last five starts.
Tue, Sep 23, 2014 07:03:00 PM

Jered Weaver improved to 18-8, scattering one run over seven innings as the Angels felled the Rangers by an 8-5 score on Saturday.

Weaver seems to be in post-season shape, as he now sports a 1.91 ERA over his last five starts. Against the Rangers, he allowed just five hits and a walk while fanning seven. He'll take a 3.43 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 164/63 K/BB ratio into his final start of the regular season on Friday in Seattle against the Mariners.

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 will start on Saturday against the Rangers.

The Angels pushed him back from Thursday so that they could set him up for the playoffs. After Saturday's start, Weaver will now get the ball next Friday and then in Game 1 of the ALDS.
Thu, Sep 18, 2014 07:11:00 PM

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.
