Angels' Jered Weaver strikes out eight Thursday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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

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

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

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.”
