Jered Weaver (back) will not make his scheduled start Sunday against the Astros.
That effectively ends his season. Jhoulys Chacin will start in his place. Weaver held a press conference to discuss his "future" on Saturday, which naturally led to retirement rumors. However, Weaver said he is "definitely not" retiring, though it's clear the 33-year-old's career is on its last leg. He'll finish the year 12-12 with a disappointing 5.06 ERA over 31 starts.

Jered Weaver (back) plans to start as scheduled Sunday against the Astros.

Weaver was forced to leave Monday's start against the Athletics after five scoreless innings due to lower back tightness, but it won't stop him from making perhaps his final start with the Angels. The veteran right-hander thinks he can pitch next season, but he has yet to make a final decision about his future. Weaver has an ugly 5.06 ERA in 31 starts this season.

Jered Weaver exited Monday's start against the Athletics after five scoreless due to lower back tightness.

Weaver allowed just one hit and one walk while striking out three. The veteran right-hander lowered his ERA to 5.06 with the start. Assuming the issue doesn't linger, he lines up to start the season finale against the Astros on Sunday.
Sep 26 - 11:45 PM

Jered Weaver yielded five runs over just four frames but escaped with a no-decision in Monday's 10-7 win over the Athletics.

Weaver had actually pitched pretty well in his previous two starts, but he reverted back to stinking in this one. The veteran righty coughed up four hits and walked three, needing 83 pitches to get through four innings. The season can't end soon enough for the 33-year-old. Weaver faces the Rangers the next time out.
Sep 5 - 8:15 PM

Jered Weaver turned in a nice performance in Tuesday's win over the Reds, surrendering two runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Weaver struck out five without walking a batter in what was about as clean a start as the veteran right-hander has tossed this season. He kept the Reds off the scoreboard completely until Eugenio Suarez hit a two-run home run in the seventh inning. This makes back-to-back respectable outings for Weaver, who holds a rough 5.21 ERA and 1.51 WHIP for the season as a whole. A road showdown with the Mariners shows next on his schedule.
Aug 31 - 1:08 AM

Jered Weaver held the Blue Jays to two runs -- one earned -- over 5 2/3 innings in a win Thursday.

Weaver scattered five hits, including a solo home run, and three walks while striking out four. The win was his first in over a month, improving him to 9-11 overall. The veteran right-hander, who some have begun to speculate might hang it up after this season, will carry a 5.31 ERA and 1.52 WHIP into Tuesday's interleague matchup with the Reds.
Aug 25 - 11:01 PM

Jered Weaver isn't ready to say whether he will retire after the season.

Weaver, 33, is finishing the final season of his five-year, $85 million contract with the Angels. He owns a career-worst 5.47 ERA through 24 starts and while his velocity has ticked up slightly, it's fair to wonder how much longer he can hang on. "There’s still a lot of season left," Weaver said over the weekend. "When the time comes to answer those questions, I will." The Southern California native has spent his entire 11-year career with the Angels. It's unclear whether he'd be willing to pitch elsewhere.
Aug 23 - 9:12 AM

Jered Weaver served up four home runs balls while giving up five runs in 4 2/3 innings Friday against the Yankees.

It's really quite impressive that Weaver has managed to keep it together as well as he has this year, given that he's pitching without a fastball. Not that a 5.47 ERA is truly getting the job done, but it's not like the Angels have better alternatives at the moment.
Aug 20 - 2:26 AM

Jered Weaver was unimpressive in Sunday's loss to the Indians, surrendering five runs on 10 hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Weaver did not strike out a batter on the afternoon. Jason Kipnis hit a solo homer off the veteran right-hander in the first inning. Weaver would later surrender two-run frames in the fifth and sixth to polish off the scoring on his line. There is no fantasy intrigue here, but Weaver will take a 5.32 ERA and 1.50 WHIP into a home start against the Yankees next time he toes the rubber nonetheless.
Aug 14 - 6:23 PM

Jered Weaver allowed five runs -- four earned -- on eight hits over five innings in a loss to the Cubs on Tuesday.

Weaver's struggles continue, as the loss dropped him to 8-9 with a 5.19 ERA and 1.47 WHIP on the year. The Angels are surely counting the days until the 33-year-old's $20.2 million contract expires this winter and they can wash their hands of him. Until then, Weaver will continue to start every fifth day, with his next start scheduled for Sunday against the Indians.
Aug 9 - 10:37 PM

Jered Weaver pitched surprisingly well in Thursday's no-decision against the Red Sox, tossing 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball.

Weaver scattered six, walked two and struck out two on the evening. The only run to score on his watch came when Mookie Betts notched a sacrifice fly in the third inning. For Weaver, this is about as good as it gets, particularly given the strength of the opponent. The 33-year-old right-hander still holds an uninspiring 5.14 ERA and 1.45 WHIP. A home date with the A's shows next on his schedule.
Jul 29 - 1:19 AM

Jered Weaver lasted just four innings Saturday, giving up six runs on seven hits in a loss to the Astros.

Weaver wasn't terribly effective against most of the lineup, but Evan Gattis especially gave Weaver fits, hitting two homers off the right-hander. The clunker actually came after a few strong outings from the 33-year-old, who fell to 8-8 with the loss. Weaver will carry a 5.32 ERA and 1.45 WHIP into Thursday's contest against the potent Red Sox offense.
Jul 23 - 10:24 PM

Jered Weaver held the White Sox to one run over seven innings Sunday in an 8-1 victory for Anaheim.

Weaver also had a nice showing in his final start before the All-Star break, throwing six innings of one-run ball versus the Rays. It's amazing he can pull that off with a fastball that rarely touches 88 mph. Still, the veteran right-hander holds an unsightly 5.02 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 107 2/3 innings for the season.
Jul 17 - 6:38 PM

Jered Weaver held the Rays to one run in six innings in the Angels' 7-2 victory on Wednesday, striking out five, walking one and allowing only four hits.

Weaver is perhaps the softest thrower in baseball but he got the job done today. He is not having a good season as his 5.27 ERA and 1.44 WHIP prove, but he evened his record at 7-7 heading into the All Star break.
Jul 6 - 10:55 PM

Jered Weaver made the Hindenburg blush with his disaster of a performance in Wednesday's loss to the Astros, surrendering six runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Weaver struck out three and walked four on the afternoon. The Astros scored a run off him in the first and plated a pair in both the third and fifth innings before George Springer finished off the veteran with a solo home run in the sixth. Weaver's 5.51 ERA and 1.48 WHIP tell the story of his season well enough. A road start against the Rays shows next on his schedule.
