Weaver has been sidelined for a month with a left hip inflammation.

"Obviously I'd like to stay away from (a rehab assignment) but if that's what I need to do to prove I've ready to go, then that's what I'll do," Weaver told the Orange County Register.

If he does not go that route, he could start for the Angels as early as Sunday against Texas. He will likely be limited to about 75 pitches.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/17/2015) Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver threw a simulated game on Thursday as he continues to make his way back from right hip inflamation, per MLB.com.

Weaver threw 50 pitches in three simulated innings off the mound at Angel Stadium. He will likely throw another simulated game either Monday or Tuesday, and could return to the rotation soon after that.

"Felt good," Weaver said after throwing. "[I] was able to hit down-and-away pretty good. Hitting spots, speed was good. I think we're going to do one more of those and then be ready."

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said that the team is hopeful Weaver will not have to make a rehab start.

"If we keep up that aggressive sim game, he's not that far away from pitching and with his feel he should be OK," Scioscia said. "The one thing with Weave, if it's coming out the way we hope, you don't want to waste anything."


Angels set post-break rotation; decisions still need to be made

Garrett Richards and 2015 All-Star Hector Santiago will go on Saturday and Sunday respectively. 

Meanwhile, the futures for Andrew Heaney, Matt Shoemaker and Jered Weaver are rather unclear. Scioscia said Heaney will get another start.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Mike Scioscia said Weaver has been pitching with the condition "for the last couple of starts." His struggles, however, have extended beyond those outings. Weaver is 0-4 with a 6.58 ERA over his last four starts. He has allowed 16 home runs this season, most in the American League.

"Pitchers are always trying to perform with little nicks, and [Weaver] has," Scioscia said. "I think it just got to the point in his last couple starts where you could see mechanically he's not where he wants to be. His shoulder, his arm, feels great, but we have to find out exactly what's going on."


Angels SP Jered Weaver placed on DL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Weaver has been a mess since a strong May. He has allowed 19 earned runs on 31 hits and 11 walks in his last 26 innings pitched. His record has fallen to 4-8 and his ERA has leaped to 4.75. He allowed four runs in 5 2/3 innings in a loss Saturday to Oakland.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Weaver (4-8) gave up an early run in the first, and then settled in nicely as he put up zeroes over the next five frames. But a three-run sixth inning led to his undoing.

"Everything was flat," Weaver said, per MLB.com. "The command's not there. I was able to keep them off balance a little bit, but they got to me there in the sixth."

The veteran right hander has now given up 19 earned runs over his last four starts, all resulting in a loss. He'll try to right the ship when he makes his next start, scheduled for Friday at home against the Mariners.

Angels' Jered Weaver loses, snapping four-game win streak


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2015) Angels starter Jered Weaver suffered a loss, snapping a personal four-decision winning streak. That streak came after Weaver opened the season with four straight losses. 

Weaver lost to the Yankees on Friday, dropping to 4-5 on the year. He gave up seven runs on nine hits over 5 2/3 innings. Weaver didn't walk a batter and struck out two. He was tagged for three home runs. 

“For it to come down to three 315-foot homers is tough,” Weaver said of the short porch at Yankee Stadium.

“Weaver just left a couple breaking balls early over plate and they squeaked out, but they’re home runs,” manager Mike Scioscia said. “He settled in, made some pitches but couldn’t find the rhythm he normally does.”

Weaver's next start will be Wednesday at Tampa. 


Angels pitcher Jered Weaver allows three runs in win on Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2015) Angels pitcher Jered Weaver allowed three runs on nine hits in 6 1/3 innings of work in Los Angeles' 8-6 win over the Tigers on Saturday.

Weaver had issues in the second when he allowed a leadoff home run to Yoenis Cespedes. Then in the third, Weaver put two men on when Miguel Cabrera ripped a double to left center field, scoring a run. Weaver would allow one more run in the fourth, but recorded three strikeouts and no walks in his outing.

"The boys came out swinging, I was able to get some runs, and it was nice to pitch with a lead like that," Weaver said, per MLB.com. "I tried to go out there and pitch to contact as much as possible, and they were able to get some hits together, but I was able to maneuver my way out of some situations and limit the damage."

Weaver, now 4-4, moved his ERA to 4.08 in 70 2/3 innings of work. He will look to keep rolling Friday agains the Yankees.


Angels SP Jered Weaver back on track after fixing delivery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) It wasn't long ago that Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver was dealing with a 0-4 start to the season. His ERA stood at 6.29 through his first six starts and his fastball velocity was sitting around 83 mph.

However, days after falling to 0-4 following a May 3 start against the Giants, Weaver began to iron out some mechanical issues, according to MLB.com. He focused on keeping his head "on the target" and throwing through his across-the-body delivery, rather than "pulling off" and not having a direct line to home plate.

The results have been pretty good since fixing the flaws in his delivery. He threw a complete-game shutout May 8 against the Astros to pick up his first win. He is 3-0 with a 1.50 ERA in his last four starts, lowering his ERA to 4.06.

"My front side was kind of erratic and I wanted to clean that up," Weaver said. "But my front side has been a lot better, which leads to a better arm slot, so everything's coming out of the same slot now. It's a good feeling."
