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. Jun 29 - 7:34 PM

Jered Weaver was lifted after allowing four runs in 4 2/3 innings Friday against the A's.

Weaver hurled a shutout of the A's last weekend. This time, Oakland was ready for his 82-mph fastball, and he failed to last five innings for the third time this year. There's still not any fantasy potential here.

Jered Weaver threw his first shutout of the season Sunday in the Angels' 2-0 defeat of the A's.

We didn't know he could still do that. Weaver yielded just three hits and a walk against one strikeout, needing only 95 pitches to complete nine scoreless frames. He induced 20 fly balls and seven grounders. The veteran right-hander still holds an ugly 5.10 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and 47/21 K/BB ratio in 84 2/3 innings for the year.
Jun 20 - 8:36 AM

Jered Weaver struggled in Monday's loss to the Twins, allowing six runs (five earned) on eight hits over six innings.

Weaver allowed runs to score in every inning but the second and fourth. He struck out four and walked two on the evening. The veteran right-hander shouldn't be considered a fantasy asset, even in deeper AL-only formats. He will carry a tough 5.71 ERA and 1.53 WHIP into a road start against the A's next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 14 - 1:22 AM

Jered Weaver gave up two homers and was knocked around for six earned runs in a loss to the Yankees on Wednesday night.

Weaver was taken deep twice on solo shots by Jacoby Ellsbury and Chris Parmelee. Weaver gave up nine hits and two walks while striking out only two Yankee batters. He hasn't been fooling anyone all season long as proven by his 5.56 ERA and 1.52 WHIP. Weaver falls to 5-5 on the season. He will make two starts next week (Twins and Athletics) but he is not a recommended streaming option.
Jun 8 - 11:36 PM

Jered Weaver gave up two runs in six innings in a 9-2 win over the Pirates on Friday.

Weaver gave up a pair of solo homers in the second inning, but otherwise kept the Angels off the board. The soft-tossing right-hander struck out five and walked one in the win. He’s up to 5-4 on the season, but owns a 5.18 ERA through 11 starts and has allowed 14 home runs in 64 1/3 innings. He can’t be trusted in mixed fantasy leagues these days.
Jun 3 - 11:01 PM

Jered Weaver allowed four runs over six innings in a loss to the Astros on Saturday.

Weaver matched Astros starter Dallas Keuchel through five innings, each pitcher allowing two runs, but a Jason Castro two-run home run in the sixth inning broke the tie and sealed Weaver's fate. The right-hander gave up six hits and walked three on the evening. Weaver's record fell to 4-4 with the loss, and he owns a 5.40 ERA and 1.51 WHIP through 10 starts. An interleague matchup with the Pirates is on tap for Friday.
May 29 - 1:04 AM

Jered Weaver delivered a strong performance in Sunday's victory over the Orioles, allowing just two runs on five hits over seven frames.

Weaver punched out six in the ballgame and walked only one. He kept the O's off the board until his final inning of work where Jonathan Schoop belted a two-run homer. Knowing that his fastball is among the worst in the game, Weaver threw primarily breaking balls the entire game on Sunday and the strategy paid off for him. It'll be interesting to see if he does the same on Saturday against the Astros.
May 22 - 8:26 PM

Jered Weaver pitched well enough in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers, surrendering four runs (three earned) on 10 hits over seven innings.

Weaver struck out two and walked two on the evening. He also surrendered a pair of gopher balls, with Joc Pederson whacking a two-run shot in the fourth and Corey Seager cracking a solo shot in the seventh. Even with Tuesday's relatively decent outing, the veteran Weaver still carries a 5.76 ERA and 1.61 WHIP. Up next on his schedule, a home showdown with the Orioles.
May 18 - 12:31 AM

Jered Weaver imploded in Thursday's loss to the Cardinals, surrendering eight runs on nine hits over four-plus innings.

Ouch. Weaver did strike out five without walking a batter, but that about ends the positive portion of his night. He surrendered three runs in the fourth inning, then coughed up five more to open the fifth. With the disastrous start under his belt, the veteran holds a 6.10 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 24/9 K/BB ratio over 38 1/3 innings. Do not venture near him for fantasy purposes. A road start against the Dodgers shows next on his schedule.
May 13 - 2:09 AM

Jered Weaver earned a no-decision in Saturday's loss to the Rays, yielding two runs (one earned) on six hits over six innings.

Weaver struck out five without walking a batter in what was just about as good of a start that you could ask for from the veteran at this point in his career. Both runs on his line came home when Steven Souza burned him for a two-run homer in the sixth inning. Weaver will carry a 4.72 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 19/9 K/BB ratio (over 34 1/3 innings) into his next scheduled start, a home date with the Cardinals. No fantasy intrigue here.
May 8 - 12:38 AM

Jered Weaver was pounded for seven runs and 11 hits in five innings Monday by the Brewers.

Weaver took his first loss after three victories. He hasn't been very good in either of his last two starts, and his ERA has jumped from 3.12 to 5.40. Maybe he'll hold his own going forward despite the extreme lack of velocity, but there just isn't anything here to help fantasy leaguers.
May 2 - 11:48 PM

Jered Weaver yielded four runs on nine hits across six innings in Tuesday's win over the Royals.

Weaver struck out four and walked two on the evening. Among the four runs he allowed, a Mike Moustakas solo home run in the first inning. He would allow one more run in the second and two in the fourth to polish off the scoring on his line. Weaver lacks any sort of fantasy upside, but the veteran has managed to pitch to a 3.86 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings. With Tuesday's win, he improved to 3-0. There is little reason to believe he will be able to hold that ERA under 4.00 for long, but stranger things have happened in this universe. The 33-year-old right-hander will continue his quest to defeat Father Time in a road start against the Brewers next time he toes the rubber.
Apr 27 - 2:04 AM

Jered Weaver stymied the White Sox on Thursday, allowing just one run and three hits over seven innings to move to 2-0.

Weaver is throwing his fastball slower than the majority of major league starters throw their changeups, but he's still hanging tough; he has a 3.12 ERA after three starts. We don't see how he can remain fantasy relevant (he's struck out seven and allowed three homers in 17 1/3 innings), but at least he might not handicap the Angels' chances this year.
Apr 21 - 5:40 PM

Jered Weaver lasted just 4 1/3 innings Saturday against the Twins, allowing eight hits and four runs with a strikeout and two walks.

Weaver was surprisingly effective against Texas in his season debut but nothing came easy against Minnesota on Saturday. He allowed five base runners in the first inning and later gave up a solo home run to Trevor Plouffe. Weaver’s velocity has fallen dramatically this year and Saturday the Twins took advantage. With that said, Weaver didn’t let things get completely out of hand as the game was tied 4-4 when he left in the fifth inning. The veteran right-hander will try to do better next time out against the White Sox.
