Jered Weaver got a no-decision on Monday, holding the Padres to one run in 6 2/3 innings of work.
Weaver was working on a shutout, but allowed the tying run to get into scoring position in the seventh inning before he was pulled. Reliever Jose Alvarez allowed Weaver's runner to score plus two of his own, ruining Weaver's bid for a win. Weaver allowed six hits and a walk while striking out seven. He has really turned things around over his last four starts, lowering his ERA to 4.06 with a 1.15 WHIP, and a 35/10 K/BB ratio in 64 1/3 innings. Weaver will face the Tigers at home next weekend.

Jered Weaver picked up his third consecutive victory, limiting the Blue Jays to three runs in seven innings on Wednesday.

After his May 3 start, Weaver was 0-4 with a 6.29 ERA, but he's cobbled together three consecutive quality outings now. On Wednesday, all three runs scored with two outs in the fourth inning on a double, a single, and another double after Weaver issued back-to-back walks to start the frame. Other than that, he was solid, yielding only four hits in total with three walks and four punch-outs. The right-hander's ERA is down to 4.37 with a 1.16 WHIP and a 28/9 K/BB ratio in 57 2/3 innings. Weaver will try to win his fourth start in a row when he faces the Padres at home to begin a homestand on Monday.
May 20 - 9:59 PM

Jered Weaver put in another great start on Friday, limiting the Angels to one run on three hits over 7 1/3 innings in the 3-1 win.

Prior to Weaver's last two starts, his ERA sat at a bloated 6.49. It looks much more respectable, now. He pitched a complete game shutout against the Astros in his last start and against the Orioles on Friday, Weaver threw another strong outing. A J.J. Hardy home run in the eighth inning snapped a scoreless streak of 16 1/3 innings. Weaver's velocity has improved at least a little since the beginning of the season, though he's still likely to have his share of rough outings where the stuff just isn't as sharp as it needs to be. He now holds a 4.44 ERA and 1.18 WHIP, numbers he'll take into a match-up with the Blue Jays.
May 15 - 9:33 PM

Jered Weaver's first win of 2015 was a dandy, as he notched his seventh career shutout Friday against the Astros.

Weaver, who had been 0-4 with a 6.29 ERA in six starts, pitched a six-hitter for his first shutout since 2012 and just his second complete game since the beginning of 2013. We'd hardly say this means he's fixed, but his fastball was up about one mph tonight, which can't hurt. He's still going to be very hit or miss this year.
May 9 - 1:15 AM

Jered Weaver allowed five runs in five innings during Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Weaver served up back-to-back home runs to Joe Panik and Nori Aoki to start the game. It didn't get much better after that. The Giants racked up 10 hits against the right-hander in his five innings and cruised behind a throwback performance from Tim Lincecum. Weaver struck out just two batters and is averaging what would be a career-low of 4.0 K/9. With diminished stuff, Weaver's numbers are looking pretty bad this season. He's the unfortunate owner of a 6.49 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 15/5 K/BB over 34 1/3 innings. Of those 15 strikeouts, five came in an early April start. Weaver has a home date with the molten-hot Astros in his next start.
May 3 - 8:25 PM

Jered Weaver fell to 0-3 after yielding six runs over seven innings in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Athletics.

Weaver took the mound in the first inning with a 2-0 lead, but immediately gave back the runs and then some. The A's scored five runs on a two-run Josh Reddick single and a three-run Brett Lawrie home run. Josh Reddick tacked on in the sixth with a solo homer. Overall, Weaver gave up six hits, walked none, and struck out only one. It marked the first time he pitched into the seventh inning. As that might indicate, Weaver hasn't gotten off to the best start, as he carries a 5.83 ERA with a 1.33 WHIP and a 13/4 K/BB ratio in 29 1/3 innings. Weaver matches up with the Giants in San Francisco next.
Apr 29 - 12:26 AM

Jered Weaver held the A's to one run on eight hits over six innings in Wednesday's loss.

Weaver tossed in three strikeouts without walking a batter. The hit total looks disturbing, but he managed to keep the A's off of the scoreboard because none of the hits went for extra-bases. The only run on his line scored via a Billy Butler groundout. The outing dropped Weaver's ERA to 5.24. While he's still capable of holding teams down from time to time, the right-hander's dipping velocity and diminished stuff makes him generally unappealing for fantasy purposes. He'll attempt to knock the ERA under 5.00 against these same A's next time he toes the rubber.
Apr 23 - 1:43 AM

Jered Weaver pitched well in a no-decision against the Astros on Friday, allowing just two runs on six hits across six frames.

Weaver punched out three on the night without issuing a walk. He departed with a 3-2 lead and in line for a victory, though his bullpen was unable to hold on for him. Even with the strong outing Friday, he'll head into Wednesday's start against the Athletics with an unsightly 6.61 ERA and 1.53 WHIP.
Apr 17 - 11:47 PM

Jered Weaver was roughed up by the Royals on Saturday, allowing six runs in 4 1/3 innings.

Weaver's velocity is a major issue at this point. He'll finesse his way to the occasional strong outing, but consistently shutting down major league offenses will be too much for him unless his fastball comes back a bit. He gave up homers to Mike Moustakas and Salvador Perez in this one.
Apr 12 - 2:54 AM

Jered Weaver gave up four runs in six innings in losing to the Mariners on Monday.

Weaver averaged right around 85 mph with his fastball today, which was what should have been expected after his spring troubles. Weaver's velocity has been way down for years and his ERAs have been on the way up, though he's never ceased being a fine starter. Odds are that his decline will continue this year.
Apr 6 - 7:45 PM

Jered Weaver has been named the Angels' Opening Day starter.

It was obviously a formality. Weaver has seen his velocity go in the wrong direction for a few years now but has remained productive, winning 18 games last season while posting a 3.59 ERA. He'll be followed by C.J. Wilson, Matt Shoemaker and Hector Santiago, as the Halos will go with four starters for the time being. Garrett Richards (knee) is due back in a couple weeks.
Apr 2 - 6:50 PM

Jered Weaver was in control in Saturday's start, holding the Giants scoreless over 5 1/3 innings.

Weaver looks ready for the regular season already. The right-hander yielded just four hits and a walk while striking out six on the afternoon. With the effort, he lowered his ERA to 1.69 over 16 innings and sports a 15/4 K/BB ratio as well. Weaver should provide plenty of fantasy value in 2015, especially if he can better the 3.59 ERA he posted last year.
Mar 21 - 7:58 PM

Jered Weaver tossed five solid innings, allowing one run, in a start versus the Rangers on Monday.

Weaver allowed only one hit, a solo home run to Robinson Chirinos. Aside from that, the Rangers couldn't touch him as he issued no walks and struck out five. The right-hander, who led the league with 18 wins, is looking to improve on last season's 3.59 ERA.
Mar 16 - 7:31 PM

Jered Weaver struggled Wednesday facing the D'Backs, yielding two runs on five hits and two walks in three innings.

Weaver had allowed plenty of base runners but was able to escape three innings allowing only one run thanks to the D'Backs missing some opportunities. He started the fourth inning, gave up a lead-off home run to Brandon Drury, and was immediately pulled. Weaver, 32, led the league in wins last season with 18 but posted his highest ERA in six seasons at 3.59. However, he added weight over the winter in an attempt to become more durable throughout the season. If it works as intended, Weaver could rejoin the class of elite starting pitchers.
Mar 11 - 8:10 PM

Jered Weaver excelled in his Cactus League debut against the Rockies on Friday, scattering two hits and a walk over 2 2/3 scoreless innings.

The veteran right-hander struck out one on the afternoon. Weaver made a concerted effort to bulk up over the winter in an effort to remain strong through the final months of the season, reporting to camp at 224 pounds. If he improves upon his already terrific numbers from a season ago, he could deliver a substantial profit in fantasy leagues.
