Jered Weaver has announced his retirement from baseball.
Weaver opened the season 0-5 with a 7.44 ERA in nine starts before landing on the disabled list in May due to a hip injury that continues to plague him. "While I've been working hard to get back on the mound, my body just will not allow me to compete like I want to," Weaver said in a statement Wednesday. "Many thanks to the Padres organization for the opportunity to play in the amazing city of San Diego. You have been very professional and respectful during this process and I really appreciate that." The 34-year-old right-hander spent 12 seasons in the major leagues between the Angels and Padres, compiling a 150-98 record and 3.63 career ERA. He had three straight top-five finishes in the American League Cy Young Award balloting back in 2010-2012. Aug 16 - 1:06 PM

Padres manager Andy Green indicated Sunday that Jered Weaver (hip) might not make another appearance for them.

Weaver made a rehab start with Triple-A El Paso two and a half weeks ago, but he hasn't pitched since then and is currently in San Diego getting treatment for his inflamed left hip. Green told reporters Sunday that the veteran righty has been "given (the) latitude to explore some things." It's unclear what exactly that means, but it looks like Weaver's days as a Padre are over. The 34-year-old posted a 7.44 ERA over nine starts for San Diego and it's questionable at this point whether he'll receive another big league opportunity.
Jul 9 - 12:47 PM

Jered Weaver (hip) is set to make his first minor league rehab appearance with Triple-A El Paso on Thursday.

The soft-tossing right-hander posted a 7.44 ERA over nine starts before landing on the disabled list, so there's no real rush by the Padres to get him back in there. Look for him to rejoin the Padres' rotation at some point in early-to-mid July.
Jun 17 - 2:58 PM

Jered Weaver (hip) is scheduled to face live hitters during the Padres' weekend series in Milwaukee.

Weaver is making slow but steady progress in his recovery from a hip injury, though his road back to the Padres' rotation is probably still a long one. The soft-tossing right-hander was sporting a 7.44 ERA through nine starts this season.
Jun 13 - 8:10 PM

Jered Weaver (hip) threw a bullpen session on Tuesday, his first since landing on the 10-day disabled list.

Weaver is slowly making progress after going on the DL with left hip inflammation. "When we were passing, he said 'I'm feeling freer.' We're working on some mobility things, working on those hips so they function like they've functioned in the past. There's inflammation, tightness," manager Andy Green said. The way Weaver has pitched, and the way prospect Dinelson Lamet has performed, there isn't likely to be a rush for Weaver to return.
May 31 - 2:58 AM

Padres placed RHP Jered Weaver on the 10-day disabled list with left hip inflammation.

Weaver couldn't make it through the first inning on Friday night and now we know why. The aging right-hander is winless in nine starts with a 7.44 ERA this year. His career is hanging by a thread.
May 20 - 8:18 PM

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.
