Angels' Jered Weaver gives up three runs in win vs. Blue Jays


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver picked up the win on Wednesday, allowing three earned runs on four hits and three walks in seven innings while striking out four in his team's 4-3 victory over the Blue Jays.

Weaver (3-4) breezed through three innings before opening the fourth by walking two batters. Though he was able to record a double play to the next man up, the Blue Jays strung together three two-out hits to score all three of their runs in the inning. The Angels offense was able to take the lead in the top of the seventh, setting the starter up for the win.

Weaver owns a 4.37 ERA and 28:9 K:BB ratio in 57 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Padres at home on Monday.


Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver throws 7 1/3 strong IP in victory


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2015) Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver (2-4) gave up one run on three hits in 7 1/3 innings Friday to defeat the Orioles.

"I don't know if his stuff was as crisp as last time, but definitely his command was there, he had enough fastball, and he did a great job against a team that's going to let you know if you're missing spots," manager Mike Scioscia said, per MLB.com. "He used his fastball well, used all his pitches."

Weaver's lone blemish was an eighth-inning home run surrendered to shortstop J.J. Hardy.

After beginning the season 0-5 with a 6.29 ERA, Weaver has allowed just one run over his last 16 1/3 innings (0.55 ERA).

"I think mechanically I was a little better last time," Weaver said. "I didn't start figuring things out mechanically until about the fourth or fifth. I was able to keep those guys off the bases for the most part. I was able to get some outs. Defense played well."

Weaver's next start is scheduled for Wednesday in Toronto.


Angels starter Jered Weaver throws six-hit shutout to earn first win


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/9/2015) After dropping his first four decisions of the season, Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver tossed a six-hit, complete-game shutout Friday to defeat the Astros and earn his first win of the season.

Weaver (1-4) lowered his ERA from 6.29 to 4.98 with the performance.

"It's nice to get a win and get the monkey off my back," Weaver said after the game, per MLB.com. "I'll keep working hard in between, try to maintain it and keep it rolling."

All six hits, three by second baseman Jose Altuve, were singles.

Weaver didn't allow a runner to reach second base and retired 19 of his last 21 to notch his first shutout since 2012.

"Weaver did a good job of really never giving in and never throwing the same pitch the same speed for nine innings," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. "We didn't really have a counterpunch for him. Early, we singled him a little bit and then made a few outs on the bases, but he settled in and changed speeds and really picked at the corners and never threw the same pitch twice, it didn't seem like."

Weaver will return to the mound for his next start Friday in Baltimore.


Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver falls to 0-4 on Sunday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver (0-4) yielded consecutive home runs in the first inning on Sunday and never recovered, giving up five runs, overall, on 10 hits in five innings for a loss in San Francisco. 

Nori Aoki and Joe Panik delivered the back-to-back blows for the Giants.

Weaver's fastball stayed around 83-84 mph all game and remains winless after six starts this season. 

"It's frustrating," he said. "I'm not doing a very good job of helping the team win right now. It's tough. Just when you think the outing is going to be good, it starts out like it did today."

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said after the game that he has no plans on skipping Weaver for his next start.

"I don't think there's any magic pixie dust you can sprinkle on it and get him going," Scioscia said. "It's gonna be a process. He's not injured."

Weaver will seek his first win of 2015 on Friday against the Astros.


Angels bat Chris Iannetta ninth, behind pitcher


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Angels catcher Chris Iannetta will hit ninth in the order in Sunday's interleague game at San Francisco, one spot behind the pitcher. 

Starting pitcher Jered Weaver, who has a .118/.167/.118 career slash line at the plate, will hit eighth. His last base hit was in 2012. 


Scioscia on Angels RHP Jered Weaver: 'He will figure this out'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2015) The good news for Angels right-hander Jered Weaver is that he issued no walks for a third straight start Tuesday. It's the first time in his career he has accomplished that.

The bad news is everything else.

Weaver turned a two-run lead into a three-run deficit by allowing five in the first inning in a loss to Oakland. He yielded just one more run over the next six, but that did not improve his mood as he finished April without a victory.

"It's definitely frustrating," he told MLB.com. "My M.O. is to try to keep us in it, and I wasn't able to do that tonight."

Weaver is 0-3 with a 5.86 ERA, but Mike Scioscia remains unworried.

"If he was throwing the ball as well as he could and hitting spots and had everything going and was getting hit, we'd be a little more concerned," Scioscia said. "But you can still see the upside with Jered. This guy just knows his way through a game. He knows what he's doing. He will figure this out."


Angels starter Jered Weaver gives up two homers, falls to 0-3


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/29/2015) Angels starter Jered Weaver (0-3) failed to earn his first win of the season on Tuesday, allowing six runs on six hits in seven innings to suffer the loss to the A's.

Weaver was tagged for a three-run homer from Brett Lawrie and a two-run shot from Josh Reddick in the defeat.

Weaver had one strike out and no walks in the game.

Weaver's next start is scheduled for Sunday in San Francisco.


Angels' Jered Weaver on having a short leash: 'Not my decision'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver who bulked up to 224 pounds in the offseason in an effort to pitch deeper into games, is anxious to earn a longer leash this season, according to MLB.com.

Weaver showed some frustration when manager Mike Scioscia walked him off the mound at the end of top of the sixth inning against Oakland on Wednesday. He allowed one run on eight hits over six innings of work in a 9-2 loss the Athletics. Of his season-high 93 pitches, 61 were strikes.

"It's not my decision," Weaver said. "It's [Scioscia's] decision. He knows where I'm at and how I'm feeling mechanically and body-wise. It's going to take a little bit of time to get that trust back and prove to him that I can be the guy that goes out there and throws 100, 115 pitches. That's what I was used to a couple years ago. But body-wise, I'm just trying to get to where I know I can be. Until then, he's going to have a little shorter leash on me."


Angels' Jered Weaver gives up one run in no-decision


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver allowed only one earned run in Thursday’s night’s 9-2 loss to the Athletics.

Weaver went six innings and gave up eight hits. He struck out three, walked zero and now holds an ERA of 5.24. The Angels were tied at 1-1 when Weaver left the game. His bullpen self-destructed and gave up eight runs in three innings. 

Weaver's performance ended with a no-decision.  

Weaver’s next projected start is on April 28. Assuming he goes, he’ll once again start against the Athletics.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/17/2015) Angels starter Jered Weaver yielded two runs on six hits in six innings to earn a no decision on Friday against the Astros.

Jered Weaver gets knocked around in Angels' loss


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Angels starter Jered Weaver gave up six runs in four and a third innings in Saturday's 6-4 loss to Kansas City. 

Weaver walked four and allowed seven hits, striking out five. He gave up home runs to Salvador Perez and Mike Moustakas.

"Everything that I was throwing was up - just like in Seattle," Weaver said, referring to his opening-day loss. "I can't get the ball down and I can't get ahead of guys."

Weaver dropped to 0-2, with an 8.71 ERA. He threw 85 pitches, 48 for strikes. His next start will be on Friday against Roberto Hernandez and the Astros. 


Angels' Scoiscia says Weaver's drop in velocity signals no red flags


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver's average velocity on his four-seam fastball during Monday's season opener against the Mariners was 83.5 mph, which was the slowest it has been in his career, according to BrooksBaseball.net. His previous low was 85.8 mph during a start April 29, 2014.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia attributed Weaver's most recent drop in velocity to being "out of sync," according to MLB.com. He gave up four runs and five extra-base hits in a loss Monday against the Mariners.

"It points more toward being in sync mechanically than anything else," Scioscia said. "He was missing up a lot, never really got his changeup into the game like he can. I wouldn't say there are any red flags. The way he finished up last year and the crispness he showed at times in the spring, he'll get it."


Angels SP Jered Weaver struggles in season debut Monday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver gave up four earned runs over six innings during Monday's 4-1 loss to the Mariners.

"I gotta do a better job myself," Weaver said after the loss, per MLB.com. "A lot of pitches up, falling behind in counts. I had to pretty much battle the whole game. It's a tough way to get it going, but we have two more against them."

Weaver took the loss. He gave up eight hits while striking out one batter and walking none. He also gave up a solo home run to outfielder Dustin Ackley.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Angels starter Jered Weaver finished his spring training campaign on Tuesday. He allowed two runs over 6 1/3 innings of work in a minor-league game. According to the Orange County Register, Weaver shifted his focus on Opening Day at Seattle on Monday.

"I'm ready," Weaver said. "It's going to be fun to pitch under the lights again, obviously not in the first game, but it's nice to get that atmosphere back again. Get back out there and start a fresh season again. It's going to be fun."

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

The team's top pitching prospect, Heaney has allowed 13 earned runs in 14.0 innings (8.36 ERA) in four starts this spring.

The Angels are expected to open the season with a four-man rotation that will included Jered Weaver, Matt Shoemaker, C.J. Wilson and Hector Santiago.

Starter Garrett Richards is recovering from knee surgery.

"One of the things is, a lot of guys who are playing well, it might come down to what the fit is on the team. So there's a couple different ways," Scioscia said. "There's some things that might happen that might affect somebody's standing on the team in a positive or negative way, just to get the whole roster to be as deep as you can."


Angels 'most likely' to start year with four starting pitchers


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) Angels manager Mike Scioscia thinks he will start the season with a short staff, reports MLB.com. The team will "most likely" start the year with four starters in the rotation and 12 pitchers overall, Scioscia said Sunday.

The expected starters would be Jered Weaver, Matt Shoemaker, C.J. Wilson and Hector Santiago with Garrett Richards still recovering from knee surgery.

"One of the things is, a lot of guys who are playing well, it might come down to what the fit is on the team. So there's a couple different ways," Scioscia said. "There's some things that might happen that might affect somebody's standing on the team in a positive or negative way, just to get the whole roster to be as deep as you can."


Angels' Jered Weaver strikes out eight Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits in 5 1/3 innings while racking up eight strikeouts in Thursday's spring start against the Cubs.

Weaver brought a 1.69 ERA into the outing and though that mark rose more than a full run Thursday, the starter has posted an excellent 18:1 K:BB ratio in his last three starts.

"It's always not to walk guys; it's something I've always taken a lot of pride in," Weaver said after the outing, per MLB.com "It's been coming along good. I'm not out there trying to strike people out, but it's happened a little bit. … Everything's coming along nice, location's good, offspeed stuff is good when I need it, so I'm happy with where I'm at."

Weaver is on pace to deliver his best spring numbers since 2008.


Angels pitcher Jered Weaver throws 85 pitches in start Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2015) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver is still working to fix his mechanics. But Weaver didn't seem too bothered Saturday, throwing 85 pitches with 52 of the going for strikes.

"It's been good," Weaver said of the timing in his delivery. "I'm still getting amped up early on, but was able to settle down there in the third inning, get the timing down. Everything is working over the rubber nicely. I've been working in between starts to get that timing down and it's been nice game-wise, getting out there and having everything work for you."

Weaver shut out the Giants in 5 1/3 innings of work.


Angels' Jered Weaver trying to tighten up mechanics


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver said after giving up two earned runs in three innings Wednesday that he's focused on tightening up his mechanics rather than pitch at full intensity, MLB.com reports.

"Now," Weaver said, "I'm just trying to tighten things up mechanically. And this was a good step in the right direction."

Weaver's two runs allowed came on five hits and two walks, and he also struck out three while giving up one home run. His fastball was a few ticks slower than its typical speed last season.

"I don't really pay attention to the velocity stuff; it's getting location down and being able to get on pitches when you need to," Weaver said. "Keep everything simple, but there's going to be times when you want to get on certain pitches in certain counts. That's the toughest thing about release points, when you're trying to put a little extra behind it and having that happy medium of not trying to do too much."


Angels' Jered Weaver bulks up in effort to pitch deeper into games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2015) Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver has bulked up to 224 pounds, which is six pounds heavier than he has ever been, in an effort to pitch deeper into games in 2015, per the Los Angeles Times. Weaver dropped to as low as 199 pounds during the 2014 season.

“Numbers-wise, it was all right,” Weaver said of his 2014 season (18-9, 3.59 ERA). “But from a personal standpoint, me being ultra-competitive, I want to get deeper in games.

“The bullpen helped me a lot last year. I just want to gain some strength. I went on a different weight-lifting program last year, and it’s been paying off. I’m going to stick with it.”

The average velocity of Weaver’s fastball dipped to a career-low 86.3 mph last season. However, he said the added weight gain is more for endurance than velocity on his fastball. He averaged just over six innings per start last season and has just one complete game over the last two seasons after throwing seven complete games in 2011-12.

“I don’t care about velocity -- I just want to be stronger for the whole nine innings,” Weaver said. “If velocity comes along, so be it. I think I’ve shown I can pitch from 83 to 93 mph.”
