Weaver didn't record an out and appeared to hurt himself on his second pitch to the Yankees' Robinson Cano. On a 1-1 pitch, Weaver landed gingerly. He tried to throw one warm-up pitch after the injury and immediately headed to the dugout.
He was replaced by right-hander Bobby Cassevah.
Weaver allowed two hits and had one run score on an error by shortstop Erick Aybar.
