Rotation set up perfectly for Boston series

Right-hander Jered Weaver's stomach did something Angels manager Mike Scioscia was unwilling to do -- set up the Angels' rotation so that Weaver and Dan Haren will each start during the team's four-game series in Boston starting Monday.

Weaver was not scheduled to pitch in the series just as he did not pitch during the four-game series in Anaheim last week. The Red Sox swept the Angels in that series, outscoring them 20-5 and holding Angels' hitters to a .158 average.

But Weaver was scratched from his scheduled start in Tampa on Sunday due to a stomach ailment. Weaver was bothered by the symptoms all day Saturday and had to receive fluids intravenously to avoid dehydration. The Angels had pushed all of their starters back a day following an off day Thursday, so Scioscia was able to move rookie Tyler Chatwood into Sunday's start without asking him to pitch on short rest.

"I have no idea what it was -- but it wasn't good," Weaver said of the ailment.

Weaver said he was feeling better Sunday morning and tried to talk Scioscia into letting him start. But Scioscia was having no part of that.

Chatwood gave up five runs in the first inning of a game the Angels came back to win 6-5 over the Rays Sunday.

"That's neither here nor there," Scioscia said of the rotation shuffle that will have both Weaver and Haren pitching in Boston. "A baseball game is a baseball game. We're just going to keep these guys on their schedule and whoever they come up against, they come up against."
