Weaver allowed four runs on two hits and two walks while striking out two over two-thirds of an inning in Wednesday's spring game against Oakland.
Weaver, who missed nearly four months in 2019 with a forearm strain, made his spring debut Wednesday. Both he and manager Torey Lovullo accentuated the positive despite the results. "The ball was coming out good; I think I saw some good velocity numbers out of the fastball," Weaver, who topped out in the mid-90s, told Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Repblic. "Threw some good cutters. Threw some good changeups. Some swing and miss for some strikeouts against a couple of really good hitters." The right-hander's command was not pinpoint, but he got his normal workload in, throwing 33 pitches before departing. Ugly spring outings happen; the process is more important than results in February.
