Jered Weaver got just two outs and was charged with seven runs Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Weaver doesn't seem to have any tricks left at this point. He's almost certainly going to get a break from the rotation after falling to 0-5 with a 7.44 ERA, and it's not out of the realm of the possibility that he's made his final major league appearance.
May 20 - 2:17 AM

Jered Weaver pitched well in a no-decision against the White Sox on Sunday, allowing one run on five hits and a pair of walks over six strong innings.

Weaver fanned three on the afternoon. He left in line for his first victory of the season, but the Padres' bullpen was unable to hold on for him. Even with this strong outing, he still sports an abysmal 6.05 ERA and 1.34 WHIP on the season. He remains an uninspiring fantasy option for Friday's start against the Diamondbacks.
May 14 - 5:47 PM

Jered Weaver was touched up for seven runs over just three innings of work in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

The Rangers' offense has been underperforming, but it's nothing a little Jered Weaver can't cure. Texas took Weaver deep twice, and the soft-tossing righty has now surrendered 14 longballs on the season, which is tied with Mike Fiers for the major league lead. This isn't going to get better, and the Padres surely know this. But, they gave Weaver $3 million for some reason so they're unlikely to give up on him soon. He'll get the White Sox on the road Sunday.
May 9 - 6:45 PM

Jered Weaver allowed 10 runs - five earned - with 10 hits over four innings while striking out just two batters in Wednesday's loss against the Rockies.

Weaver fell to 0-3 while his ERA ballooned to 5.51 after the ugly outing. He has recorded three quality starts over his past five outings, but the team is 0-6 in his six appearances this season. While he hasn't exactly been pitching lights out, the Padres haven't been helping him either. The Padres are scoring just 2.17 runs per outing with the veteran right-hander on the hill.
May 4 - 1:56 AM

Jered Weaver allowed five runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Thursday.

Weaver gave up three homers in this one, as Chase Field and fly ball pitchers are a bad combination. He allowed six hits and walked two while striking out just one overall. The start was his worst as a member of the Padres, but the club is actually 0-5 in Weaver's five starts this year. The 34-year-old will carry a 4.71 ERA and 1.08 WHIP into Wednesday's dangerous matchup with the Rockies.
Apr 28 - 12:14 AM

Jered Weaver allowed two solo home runs with four hits and a walk over six innings in a no-decision Saturday against the Marlins.

Weaver has allowed seven homers in four starts (23 innings), including at least two long balls in three of the outings. He is eating up innings, posting three straight quality starts, but he is still only worth a look in deeper NL-only fantasy leagues because of his high homer totals and low strikeout numbers.
Apr 23 - 2:15 AM

Jered Weaver yielded three runs -- two earned -- over six innings Monday in a no-decision against the Braves.

Atlanta won the game on a walkoff RBI single by Dansby Swanson in the bottom of the ninth. Weaver was good but not great, striking out three and issuing zero walks but surrendering seven hits. Freddie Freeman popped him for a two-run homer to right-center in the bottom of the third. Weaver will carry a 4.24 ERA into his next start at home against the Marlins.
Apr 17 - 10:36 PM

Jered Weaver survived Coors Field on Tuesday, allowing two runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Rockies.

The runs came on solo homers from Carlos Gonzalez and Charlie Blackmon. Weaver struck out five and walked none in lowering his ERA to 4.91.
Apr 11 - 11:46 PM

Jered Weaver surrendered four runs in five innings Thursday in a loss to the Dodgers.

Weaver gave up a pair of homers to Yasiel Puig in his Padres debut. He'll battle, but he's going to remain awfully homer-prone while throwing his fastball in the low-80s.
Apr 6 - 6:48 PM

Jered Weaver had a disastrous outing Wednesday in the Padres’ Cactus League loss to the Royals, letting up four runs, three hits and hitting two batters in only 2/3 of an inning.

For the glass half-full audience, Weaver did record two strikeouts before exiting. Weaver recently complained of a dead arm, which is pretty common this time of year. The right-hander had planned to pitch through it, but the Padres have to be second-guessing that decision after Wednesday's meltdown. Weaver’s fastball was so slow (he topped out at 83.9 mph) that the pitch tracker on MLB.com classified it as a changeup. There was some thought that relocating to pitcher-friendly Petco Park might resurrect Weaver’s career, but those hopes are quickly fading. At this point in his career, Weaver is hanging on for dear life.
Mar 22 - 8:07 PM

Jered Weaver said that he has been working through a dead arm since his last bullpen session.

Weaver has come down with dead-arm in springs past and unless word surfaces to the contrary, this does not appear to be a serious concern. The Padres signed the veteran right-hander to a one-year, $3 million contract in mid-February. Weaver is looking to bounce back from a 2016 season in which he posted a 5.06 ERA in 31 starts.
Mar 22 - 5:43 PM

Jered Weaver said physically he feels "10 steps above last year."

Weaver looked like he was running on fumes last season and admitted that retirement crossed his mind. However, he began to feel better physically this offseason after taking a month off to rest and eventually resurfaced in San Diego. It's good to see Weaver getting his confidence back but he's still miles away from fantasy relevance.
Mar 16 - 11:54 PM

Jered Weaver worked 2 2/3 innings of one-run ball Sunday in his Cactus League start against the Indians.

It was the second appearance in a Padres uniform for Weaver, who tossed two innings of one-run ball in his Cactus League debut last Monday versus the White Sox. He struck out three but walked two and yielded four hits Sunday against the Tribe. Weaver is locked into a rotation spot with San Diego after signing a one-year, $3 million free agent contract in February.
Mar 12 - 6:02 PM

Making his Padres debut, Jered Weaver yielded one run over two innings against the White Sox on Monday.

Weaver gave up four hits, including a run on three singles in the first inning. He struck out one and walked none. Coming off a career-high 5.06 ERA over 31 starts, Weaver is mostly expected to provide innings for San Diego this year. He’s not much of a fantasy option at this stage of his career.
