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."

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

"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.

Angels SP Jered Weaver: 'I'm ready' for Opening Day


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."


Angels pitcher Andrew Heaney likely to be sent to Triple-A


(3/29/2015) Angels manager Mike Scioscia has indicated that pitcher Andrew Heaney will begin the season in Triple-A, according to MLB.com.

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

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.”
