Jered Weaver not at risk to miss Saturday's start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5:22 pm ET) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver expects to make his next start Saturday against the Rangers, as his lower back injury does not seem to be much of an issue.

Weaver told MLB.com he felt "awesome" after a bullpen session Wednesday, despite leaving Monday's game after two innings with the injury. Manager Mike Scioscia admitted the team considered giving Weaver extra rest by resting him through the All-Star break, but the injury is not serious enough to warrant that.  

"I don't think anything changed from the parameters we put on it a couple days ago," Scioscia said. "Let's wait and see how it lines up. If he can pitch, he'll pitch, and if he's a risk, he won't pitch. Just based on his workout this [morning], he's definitely past that point of being a risk."


Jered Weaver not expected to head to disabled list


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:10 am ET) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver isn't expected to be placed on the disabled list after his injured back felt much better Tuesday, MLB.com reports.

The team isn't sure whether he'll be ready to make his scheduled start Saturday after coming out of his previous start with lower back tightness. If they decide to skip Weaver, he could get more than 10 days of rest between starts due to the break.

"Jered's going to have to go out there and throw off a mound to see how he does before we can anticipate where he is," manager Mike Scioscia said. "I think it's pretty simple, if he's ready to go, there's no doubt we're better with him starting. If we feel we're putting a player at risk, then he won't pitch. It's pretty simple."


Jered Weaver plays catch Tuesday, feels better


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver played catch Tuesday and felt "a lot better," the Orange County Register reports.

Weaver was removed from Monday's game while warming up for the third inning and later diagnosed with lower back tightness. His next start is scheduled for Saturday, and it appears he has a shot to remain in the rotation if the injury continues to progress.


Jered Weaver exits start with lower back tightness


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver was removed from Monday's game against the Blue Jays due to lower back tightness, the team announced.

Weaver threw one warmup pitch before the third inning and didn't throw another before exiting. He had turned in two perfect innings, striking out one and throwing just 24 pitches. Weaver owns a 3.50 ERA and 93:33 K:BB ratio in 118 1/3 innings. He's tentatively scheduled to pitch Saturday against the Rangers, but that'll depend on the status of his back.


Jered Weaver surrenders five runs in win Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2014) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver picked up a win Tuesday despite giving up five earned runs on nine hits in 5 2/3 innings while striking out six in his team's 7-5 victory over the White Sox.

Weaver (9-6) surrendered two two-run home runs in the outing, and he's now given up 16 home runs in 18 starts this season. He had posted back-to-back quality starts before struggling Tuesday. Weaver owns a 3.56 ERA and 92:33 K:BB ratio in 116 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Astros Sunday.


Jered Weaver ends winless streak vs. Twins


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2014) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver tossed his second strong outing in a row Thursday against the Twins, and ended up getting the win this time around.

After settling for a no-decision following eight strong innings last time out, Weaver got plenty of support Thursday. He limited the Twins to just one run over seven innings of work, on eight hits and a walk. He struck out six batters and walked one on 106 pitches en route to a 6-4 win.

Weaver improves to 8-6 after snapping his three start winless streak. He carries a 3.33 ERA into his next outing, set for Tuesday against the White Sox. 


Jered Weaver's strong start leads to no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver bounced back from a few subpar starts Saturday, but was unable to end his winless streak as the game against the Rangers headed into extras.

Weaver, who had been tagged for eight runs in 11 1/3 innings in his previous two outings -- both losses -- was much better this time around. He allowed a first-inning run, but settled in from then to finish with one run allowed in eight innings of work. He allowed his one run on four hits and a pair of walks, while striking out five batters.

Unfortunately, though he left in line for a win, the bullpen could not make the lead stand up. The Angels went on to win, 3-2, in extra innings, but weaver settled for a no-decision. He remains 7-6 on the season, while his ERA dropped to 3.47 heading into Friday's start in Kansas City. 


Angels' rotation changed for Rangers series


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2014) The Angels have shuffled their rotation for the weekend series against the Rangers, pushing Hector Santiago into the bullpen for at least one turn MLB.com reports.

Santiago will pitch out of the bullpen at least until next weekend's series in Kansas City. The move was made to get Jered Weaver on the mound Saturday, followed by Matt Shoemaker Sunday.  


Jered Weaver surrenders four runs in loss vs. Indians


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2014) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver was tagged with a loss Monday after giving up four earned runs on five hits and one walk in six innings and striking out four in his team's 4-3 defeat against the Indians.

The fourth and final run against the starter came on another home run in the fourth. Weaver has given up at least one home run in seven straight starts and 14 home runs in his 15 starts this season. He owns a 3.67 ERA and 75:30 K:BB ratio in 95 2/3 innings. Weaver is scheduled to face the Rangers Sunday.


Jered Weaver roughed up by Oakland


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) Angels veteran right-hander Jered Weaver was on a nice roll - as in past tense. He certainly didn't perform well Wednesday night against Oakland.

Weaver was doing fine until a three-run sixth inning that featured a two-run homer by Stephen Vogt. He finished having given up four earned runs on six hits in 5 1/3 innings with two walks and five strikeouts.

He will seek to right himself in Cleveland on Monday.


Jered Weaver Ks nine in win over White Sox


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver put together a quality start on Friday against the White Sox, scattering two runs on five hits in six innings of an 8-4 victory.

The right-hander struck out nine and walked four in 109 pitches, 64 for strikes. His ERA improved to 3.31 following his seventh win of the season. Over his last four starts covering 27 innings, Weaver has allowed 11 earned runs.

Weaver will aim for his eighth win on Wednesday at home against Oakland. He allowed five earned runs in six innings in his previous start against the A's on June 1.

Jered Weaver knocked around in loss to A's


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2014) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver was knocked around on Sunday against the A's in Oakland, dropping to 6-4 on the year. The right-hander permitted six runs -- five hits -- on 11 hits and one walk while striking out five over six innings of a 6-3 defeat.

Weaver owns a 3.33 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP through his first 12 starts (78 1/3 innings). He will make his next start Friday at home against the White Sox. He is 3-2 with a 2.76 ERA in six starts at home this season.

Time to monitor Jered Weaver's control


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(5/29/2014) Jered Weaver has been able to enjoy a high level of success in Fantasy in recent seasons, even though he hasn't been all that much of a strikeout pitcher. Being a control artist has been one of his hallmarks, as owners witnessed last season when he walked three or more batters in only five of his 24 starts.

Already, in just 11 starts, Weaver has equalled last season's total of three-plus walk games.

In my most recent column, I looked into the stats that are supporting Weaver's creeping walk rate, and there are signs that it could climb even higher. Weaver could actually notch his sixth start with three or more walks this Sunday when his Angels face the Athletics, who are among the teams least prone to swinging at pitches outside of the strike zone. If in this start and beyond, Weaver does not improve his walk rate, he may not be a must-start option in Fantasy for much longer.


Jered Weaver delivers quality start in win vs. Mariners


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver earned a win in a quality start Tuesday, giving up three earned runs on seven hits and three walks in six innings while striking out five in his team's 6-4 victory over the Mariners.

Weaver (6-3) had his worst line since mid-April, but he was still able to secure his seventh quality start in his last eight tries. He owns a 2.85 ERA and 55:22 K:BB ratio in 72 1/3 innings. Weaver is on track to square off against the A's Sunday.


Jered Weaver goes distance for win vs. Astros


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2014) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver needed just 94 pitches to finish off a complete-game win Wednesday, giving up one earned run on two hits and one walk in nine innings while striking out five in his team's 2-1 win over the Astros.

Weaver (5-3) turned in his first complete game since 2012, with the only blemish coming on a fourth-inning solo home run by rookie George Springer. Weaver owns a 2.85 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 50:19 K:BB ratio in 66 1/3 innings, and he's held the opposition to two runs or fewer in each of his last seven starts. He'll try to keep rolling Tuesday in Seattle.


Jered Weaver says arm in best shape in five years


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) The seven innings of two-hit ball pitched by Angels veteran Jered Weaver on Friday night was merely an extension of an encouraging run for the right-hander.

Weaver owns a 1.86 ERA over his last six starts. Despite a fastball that no longer touches 90 mph on the radar gun, he has fanned 28 in 38 2/3 innings during that stretch to lower his ERA from 5.79 to 3.14.

The success has motivated Weaver to exclaim that his arm feels completely healthy for the first time since 2008 and 2009, per MLB.com.

"I've always been battling with something, no doubt about it, for like the last four or five years," he said. "I've finally figured out what it was, and all this stuff that the trainers have doing, message therapists have been doing, strength guys have been doing. They've been working really hard with me. It seems like things are starting to click and we're moving in the right direction."

Weaver is 4-1 in his last six starts and has yielded fewer than three runs in each of them. He has fanned 23 in his last 26 1/3 innings over his last four outings.


Jered Weaver takes tough-luck loss Friday vs. Rays


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver put together another impressive outing on Friday against Tampa Bay, but was not backed by any run support, dropping to 4-3 on the year.

Weaver permitted a solo home run to Yunel Escobar in the fifth inning and a run-scoring single to James Loney in the seventh. He yielded two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out five in seven innings pitched, lowering his ERA from 3.22 to 3.14. He tossed 105 pitches, 66 for strikes.

Weaver has allowed two earned runs or fewer in each of his last six starts. He is 4-1 with a 1.86 ERA over that six-start stretch. He'll look to keep rolling Wednesday at home against Houston. He allowed five runs in 5 2/3 innings pitched in Houston on April 6.

Jered Weaver stays dominant in win over Toronto


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Jered Weaver let down by bullpen


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver put together a solid outing Wednesday against the Nationals, but a bullpen meltdown cost him  the chance to get back to .500 in a 5-4 loss.

Weaver tossed six solid innings in the outing as he recorded his second quality start in a row. He limited the Nationals to just one run while scattering seven hits and a walk, despite striking out a season-low two batters, while throwing 53 of 82 pitches for strikes.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Jered Weaver runs out of steam in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2014) Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver cruised through much of his start against the Mets Saturday, but struggled late in a no-decision as the game went into extra innings.

Weaver allowed just one run through his first six innings, of work, and entered the seventh with a 3-1 lead. Unfortunately, he ran itno trouble with two out in the seventh, allowing a walk and back-to-back singles before being pulled. All three runners would come around to score, putting the Angels down, 4-3.

Weaver would have dropped his third straight decision to open the season, but the offense rallied to score three runs in the ninth before losing, 7-6, in 13 innings. He was charged with four runs on three hits and four walks, while striking out five batters.

Weaver is 0-2 after three starts, with a 5.79 ERA. He has allowed 13 runs on 14 hits and seven walks in 18 2/3 innings, including five home runs. He will go for his first win the next time he takes the mound, set for Friday against the Tigers. 


Jered Weaver serves up four long balls in loss to Astros


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver could not keep the ball inside the park on Sunday, surrendering four homers while suffering his second loss of the season in a 7-4 defeat to Houston.

Weaver (0-2) served up homers to Jason Castro, Matt Dominguez, Jesus Guzman and Alex Presley. He was charged with five runs on five hits and no walks while striking out six over 5 2/3 innings pitched.

Jered Weaver suffers loss in season opener


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2014) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver was saddled with the loss in Monday's opener, giving up four runs (three earned) on six hits and three walks in 6 1/3 innings while striking out six in his team's 10-3 loss to the Mariners.

Weaver's fastball sat in the mid-to-high 80s in the start, which is typical after his average fastball dipped from 89.1 mph in 2011 to 86.5 mph last season. He has the ability to keep pitchers guessing and make his fastball look faster than it actually is with his other quality pitches, which included a curveball in the 60s on Monday. He'll look for a better outing on Sunday against the Astros.
