Angels manager Mike Scioscia reiterated Thursday that Jered Weaver (back) is feeling "fine" and will be ready to go for Saturday's start versus the Rangers.

"He feels good today," the skipper added. Weaver exited his last outing on Monday with tightness in his lower back, but it sounds like the ailment is no longer a concern. The right-hander owns a 3.50 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 93/33 K/BB ratio in 118 1/3 innings this season for the Angels.

Jered Weaver (back) is expected to make his next scheduled start Saturday against the Rangers.

Weaver made an early departure from his outing Monday against the Blue Jays with tightness in his lower back, but he played catch Tuesday and felt fine. The right-hander owns a 3.50 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 93/33 K/BB ratio in 118 1/3 innings this season for the Angels.
Jul 10 - 11:29 AM

Jered Weaver (back) played catch Tuesday and said he felt "a lot better."

Weaver left Monday's start against the Blue Jays with lower back tightness. His next scheduled start for this weekend remains up in the air, but obviously it's good news that he's improving. He'll need to throw his regular between-starts bullpen session before being cleared.
Jul 8 - 6:55 PM

Jered Weaver left Monday's start against the Blue Jays with lower back tightness.

Weaver had thrown two perfect frames but exited after warming up before the top of the third inning. He's likely considered day-to-day, but the Angels should provide an update on his status after the game. Matt Shoemaker, who threw 102 pitches last Thursday, relieved Weaver.
Jul 7 - 10:41 PM

Jered Weaver allowed five runs on nine hits over 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's nightcap against the White Sox, earning the win.

The White Sox pushed across four of the runs on two two-run homers, as Weaver has now allowed 16 home runs through 18 starts this year. On the plus side, he didn't walk a batter while striking out six. The ugly win leaves him with a respectable 9-6 record, 3.56 ERA and 1.16 WHIP on the season. He'll look for a better performance Sunday against the Astros.
Jul 2 - 12:16 AM

Jered Weaver pitched seven innings of one-run ball Thursday in a victory over the Twins.

Weaver had given up 14 homers among his 85 hits allowed this season, but none of the eight hits he allowed today left the yard (Joe Mauer's might have, but Mike Trout got a glove on it and turned it into a double). He's given up two runs over 15 innings in his last two starts to bring his ERA back down to 3.33. Despite the homers, he's been better than the Angels should have anticipated.
Jun 26 - 7:19 PM

Jered Weaver limited the Rangers to one run and four hits in eight innings in a no-decision Saturday.

Weaver exited with a one-run lead after 108 pitches, but Kevin Jepsen couldn't make it stand up. It was still one of Weaver's best outings of the season, and the first since May 11 in which he didn't give up a homer. He's 7-6 with a 3.47 ERA.
Jun 22 - 1:16 AM

Jered Weaver gave up four runs in six innings Monday in a loss to the Indians.

Weaver gave up two homers in this one, running his streak to seven straight starts of giving up a long ball. After an outstanding month of May in which he went 4-1 with a 1.98 ERA, he's 1-3 with a 5.79 ERA in June. He'll return home for a start against the Rangers next time out, making him a better play in mixed leagues.
Jun 16 - 10:27 PM

Jered Weaver was tagged for four runs on six hits and two walks in Wednesday's 7-1 loss opposite the Athletics.

The veteran right-hander was slogging through the outing without his good stuff until Stephen Vogt ended his night in the sixth inning with a two-run blast. Weaver struck out five and required 104 pitches to secure 16 outs. After falling to 7-5 with a 3.51 ERA and 1.17 WHIP, Weaver heads to Cleveland for a Tuesday night date against the Indians.
Jun 12 - 1:31 AM

Jered Weaver fanned nine while allowing two runs over six innings Friday in a victory over the White Sox.

The White Sox had chances tonight -- they had 10 men on base during Weaver's six innings -- but they couldn't do anything more than score lone runs in the third and fifth innings. Weaver moved to 8-2 with a 1.70 ERA in 11 career starts versus the White Sox. He won't be as good of a play with the A's next on the schedule.
Jun 7 - 1:47 AM

Jered Weaver was hit hard in Sunday's loss to the Athletics, surrendering five runs on 11 hits over his six innings.

Weaver walked one and struck out a pair on the afternoon. The A's jumped on him with a four-run uprising in the third inning, and Jed Lowrie tacked on a solo homer in the fifth frame to complete the damage. The veteran right-hander will look to improve upon his 3.33 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 57/23 K/BB ratio when he takes on the White Sox next weekend.
Jun 1 - 8:10 PM

Jered Weaver posted his fifth consecutive quality start, giving up three runs in Tuesday's 6-4 victory over the Mariners.

The right-hander struck out five and walked one. Weaver has struck out at least five in six straight outings. This was the first time since Weaver's 0-2, 5.79 ERA start that he's given up three runs in an outing. The pleasant fantasy surprise is 6-3 with a 2.99 ERA and 1.05 WHIP. Weaver gets the A's on the road Sunday.
May 28 - 1:17 AM

Jered Weaver yielded only two hits and one run in a complete game in Wednesday's 2-1 victory over the Astros.

Weaver whiffed five and walked only one. It's time to start wondering: Are our lying eyes deceiving us? Weaver appears to have diminished stuff, and nobody was surprised when that flatter-than-usual arsenal produced an 0-2 start with a 5.79 ERA through three starts. Since that time, he's turned in seven strong starts in a row. He's only coughed up three homers during that span -- including George Springer's solo long fly tonight -- which won't continue, but owners need to ride the wave as long as Weaver continues fooling big league hitters. Now 5-3 with a 2.85 ERA and 0.99 WHIP, Weaver has a road date in Seattle on Tuesday.
May 22 - 12:40 AM

Jered Weaver pitched seven innings of two-run ball, allowing three hits, Friday against the Rays.

Diminished stuff or no, Weaver has turned in six strong starts in a row. It's mostly a result of him allowing just two homers during the span, which seems pretty fluky. Enjoy it while it lasts, but don't expect a lot of mixed-league value the rest of the way.
