Jered Weaver was superb in earning a no-decision against the Rangers on Friday, turning in six innings of one-run ball in his team's eventual 2-1 victory.
Weaver struck out just two and walked three, but he made sure the free passes didn't burn him too badly by holding the Rangers to just two hits. The Halos would eventually win the game in the later innings. Impressive start, particularly given that he's currently dealing with a sore throwing shoulder. He closes out his 2015 campaign holding a 4.64 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 90/33 K/BB ratio across 165 innings. The Angels now sit just half a game back of the Astros for the final Wild Card slot, pending the result of Friday's game between Houston and Arizona. Oct 2 - 11:07 PM

Jered Weaver (shoulder) said he was "a little stiff" when he played catch Monday.

Weaver admitted that his shoulder was bothering him throughout his start on Sunday and he's not sure whether he'll be ready for his next scheduled outing Friday. "If I can be out there, I'll be out there," Weaver said. "If I can't, I won't." Weaver should be ready for Friday if he's able to throw his regular between-starts bullpen session Wednesday. Otherwise, expect Mat Latos to get the start.

Jered Weaver said that his shoulder was uncomfortable throughout Sunday's start against the Mariners, but that he expects to make his next scheduled start.

Weaver lasted just five innings against the M's on Sunday, allowing one run on four hits. The right-hander boasts a 4.76 ERA and 1.25 WHIP over 153 innings on the season. He should be fine to take the hill for his final start of the regular season this week, but isn't a recommended fantasy option.
Sep 27 - 6:50 PM

Jered Weaver worked well in a relatively short start against the Mariners on Sunday, surrendering just one run on four hits over five innings.

Weaver struck out three without walking a batter on the afternoon. The only run to score against him came in the top of the fourth inning, when Jesus Montero worked a shallow RBI single. Pitching with diminished stuff, the 32-year-old right-hander has struggled to a mediocre 4.76 ERA and 1.25 WHIP over 153 innings this season. The cruel wheel of time eventually breaks us all. Weaver will head to Arlington, Texas, to face the Rangers in his final start of the season.
Sep 27 - 6:14 PM

Jered Weaver served up five runs in 5 2/3 innings, taking the loss on Monday against the Astros.

Weaver allowed a pair of two-run home runs: to Evan Gattis in the second inning and to Carlos Correa in the third. He gave up nine hits overall while walking two and striking out five. Near the end of an abysmal season, the veteran has a 4.86 ERA with a 1.26 WHIP and an 85/30 K/BB ratio over 148 innings. Weaver will take the hill at home against the Mariners next.
Sep 21 - 11:26 PM

Jered Weaver gave up three runs on six hits over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Mariners on Wednesday.

He struck out three and walked one. Weaver struggles against most teams nowadays, but the Mariners have particularly given him fits. He came into tonight having coughed up a 4.75 ERA in five starts against Seattle since the beginning of last year. His overall 2015 ERA is pretty close at 4.74.
Sep 17 - 12:56 AM

Jered Weaver was ejected from Wednesday's game for hitting Kyle Seager with a pitch.

Weaver and Seager exchanged words during Seager's at-bat in the fifth inning, and Seager was hit by the very next pitch. Weaver had given up three runs on six hits and a walk prior to the ejection. His ERA sits at 4.74.
Sep 16 - 11:45 PM

Jered Weaver pitched six innings of two-run ball and struck out seven as the Angels edged the Astros 3-2 on Friday.

Weaver has turned in two straight quality starts to begin September after giving up 14 runs in his final two outings of August. He's still a poor bet in mixed leagues, even with a start against the Mariners coming up next.
Sep 12 - 1:21 AM

Jered Weaver held the Rangers to one run over six innings but took a no-decision on Saturday.

Anaheim's offense could muster only one run versus Rangers starter Derek Holland and closer Shawn Tolleson in a big, important victory for Texas. Weaver did his part for the Angels, allowing only four hits over his six strong frames. Anaheim currently stands 3 1/2 games back of the Rangers for the second American League Wild Card spot.
Sep 5 - 11:59 PM

Jered Weaver lost to the Indians on Sunday, surrendering eight runs in six innings of work.

The Indians hit a pair of RBI doubles in the first inning, but Weaver settled in with three scoreless innings. He slipped up again in the fifth, serving up a grand slam to Abraham Almonte. Overall, the right-hander gave up nine hits and walked four while striking out two. Weaver's awful 2015 season is almost over, as he carries a 4.94 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and a 67/22 K/BB ratio over 125 2/3 innings. He'll try to rebound in a home start versus the Rangers next.
Aug 30 - 4:00 PM

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.
