      Angels SP Jered Weaver walks three in no-decision

      Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver didn't factor into the decision in Friday's win over the Rangers, allowing one run on two hits and three walks while striking out two over six innings. Both of the hits Weaver surrendered were extra-base knocks off of the bat of Shin-Soo Choo, a fourth-inning blast serving as the fifth homer Weaver has given up this month. That's been Weaver's problem this season, when he's hit, he tends to get hit hard. The .460 slugging percentage batters have against him would rank sixth worst among starters if Weaver pitched enough innings to qualify. More disturbingly, Weaver has begun dishing out more and more free passes. After notching a 1.4 BB/9 ratio in his first 19 outings, Weaver has more than doubled his rate to 3.43 K/9 in his last seven starts. High walk rates and a penchant for allowing extra-base hits tend not to mix well together.

      Angels pitcher Jered Weaver leaves game with shoulder issue

      Angels pitcher Jered Weaver exited Sunday's game against the Mariners with shoulder tightness, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports. Weaver threw five strong innings, allowing just one run on four hits while striking out three. At this point, it's unclear whether the shoulder ailment puts Weaver's next start in jeopardy, but at this point he should be considered day to day. Fernando Salas earned the win for the Angles, improving his record to 5-2 on the season.

      Angels SP Jered Weaver continues down year with loss Monday

      Angels starter Jered Weaver fell to 7-12 as he allowed five runs on nine hits and two walks over 5 2/3 innings. He struck out five and walked two. Weaver continues to have the worst season of his career. His ERA is up to 4.86, just the second time in 10 seasons he has posted an ERA over 4.00. He will finish under .500 for the first time in those 10 years. His nine-year streak of posting an ERA+ over 100 is over as well. At 33, Weaver is already old for a starting pitcher, and chances are he'll have to find a way to get his average fastball over 85 MPH if he's going to be a successful starting pitcher again.

      Angels SP Jered Weaver tossed Wednesday after plunking hitter

      Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver (7-11) picked up the loss after getting ejected Wednesday, as he allowed three runs on six hits over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Mariners. Weaver was ejected for hitting Kyle Seager and he probably hurt his feelings more than anything, as it was an 83 MPH fastball. The righty had already thrown 78 pitches up to that point, so it's very possible he only had one more inning left in him anyway. A pitcher with such minimal velocity should not thrive off flyballs the way Weaver does, but that was the case here as he induced just one groundball. Weaver has induced more flyballs than groundballs in his last five outings and that's not a good sign going forward. His next scheduled start is Monday against the Astros, but that's up in the air as a suspension is possible after the beaning.

      Angels SP Jered Weaver receives ejection from Wednesday's game

      Angels pitcher Jered Weaver was ejected from Wednesday's game in the fifth inning for hitting Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports. Apparently, Weaver was upset that Seager called for time before he threw a pitch, and after some jawing back and forth between the two, Weaver plunked him. The right-hander was promptly ejected without warning. Prior to being ejected, Weaver gave up three runs on six hits and a walk while striking out three over 4 2/3 innings. It's uncertain if this incident will draw further discipline.

      Angels SP Jered Weaver baffles Astros in Friday victory

      The pitch assortment of Angels starter Jered Weaver can best be described these days as slow, slower and slowest. But he can still be effective when he puts the ball where he wants it and keeps hitters off-balance. Such was the case Friday night against visiting Houston. Weaver fanned seven in six innings while giving up just two runs on five hits. One of those hits was a two-run homer by Carlos Gomez in the sixth inning that ruined his shutout. Weaver, who raised his record to 7-10 with the effort, has yielded only three runs over his last 12 innings.

      Angels' Jered Weaver bounces back with solid effort on Saturday

      Angels starter Jered Weaver pitched very well against the Rangers on Saturday, but he was handed a no-decision in the 2-1 loss. Weaver allowed one run on four hits over six innings, walking three and striking out three. The only run that Weaver allowed came in the very first inning, but the Angels were unable to solve Rangers starter Derek Holland in this one. Weaver left the game with the score tied 1-1, but the bullpen allowed the Rangers to score the go-ahead run in the eighth inning. This was a much-needed rebound effort for Weaver, who had allowed 14 runs in 11 2/3 innings over his previous two starts.

      Angels SP Jered Weaver gets bailed out by bats in victory

      Angels starter Jered Weaver struggled in his outing against the Tigers on Tuesday. The veteran right-hander allowed six runs on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings. He escaped with the win however, as the Angels were able to hang on for the 8-7 victory. Weaver (6-9, 4.59 ERA) was staked to a 4-0 lead in the first inning, but he gave all four of those runs back in the third inning. The Halos rallied back to grab another four-run lead over the next two innings, but Weaver served up a two-run shot to James McCann in the sixth before being pulled from the game. This was Weaver's toughest start since coming back from a stint on the disabled list. In four outings now following his return, Weaver is with a 3.91 ERA.
