Angels | Jered Weaver to make rehab start Tuesday

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 17:25:08 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) is scheduled to make at least one more rehab start for Class A Inland Empire Tuesday, Aug. 4. He is expected to throw 70-80 pitches.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) was 4-8 with a 4.75 ERA in 15 starts before landing on the disabled list with a left hip injury. His decreased velocity has made him more dependent on hitting his spots to keep hitters off balance and he will be a risky play in FantasyScore when he returns to action.

Angels | Jered Weaver close to returning

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:02:50 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) feels ready to go and said "he's not that far off" with his mechanics in his delivery. Weaver will throw a bullpen session Saturday, Aug. 1, and then decide when he will return from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: C.J. Wilson was put on the disabled list today by the Angels, so Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) figures to take his rotation spot as soon as next week. Weaver has been extremely disappointing for his fantasy owners this year, though, posting a 4.75 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and just 4.6 strikeouts per nine innings with decreased fastball velocity. He's unlikely to make drastic adjustments to turn things around in the dominance department, though, so he'll remain a shaky matchup play on FantasyScore.

Angels | Jered Weaver close to return

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:22:45 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) will throw four innings or 60 pitches in his rehab start Thursday, July 30, and it could be his last minor league outing before being activated from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) won't suddenly come back and pitch with increased velocity, so he'll need to continue to hit his spots and keep hitters off balance to be effective. His return could signal the loss of a rotation spot for impressive youngster Andrew Heaney or Matt Shoemaker. Either way, Weaver is a risky starting pitching commodity in shallow mixed leagues and on FantasyScore.

Angels | Jered Weaver to make rehab start

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:40:22 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) is scheduled to make a rehab start for Class A Inland Empire Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has not pitched since June 20 but appears to be working his way back. He probably will need to make several rehab starts before he returns, and owners may want to see him pitch in a game before consider him as an option on FantasyScore.

Angels | Jered Weaver not ready to return

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 21:13:13 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) said Wednesday, July 22, that he isn't quite ready to come off the 15-day disabled list. He threw a 60-pitch simulated game Tuesday, July 21, but he might still need another sim game or a minor-league rehab stint before he returns. He will throw another bullpen session Thursday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver is apparently making slow progress, but with the starting staff pitching well since the All-Star break the team isn't in any rush to get Weaver back.

Angels | Jered Weaver not ready to return

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 16:16:31 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) said his hip feels healthy, but he is not quite ready to return. He could throw another simulated game or go on a rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will want to be patient and see what Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) decides to do before making any hasty decisions. It is likely he'll make a rehab start, which means he is likely approximately two weeks away. Continue to monitor his progress.

Angels | Jered Weaver threw simulated game

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 16:35:05 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) threw a four-inning, 60-pitch simulated game Tuesday, July 21. The Angels will wait a couple days before determining Weaver's next step.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) allowed 19 earned runs in his last four starts before going on the disabled list. FantasyScore owners will want to see a string of positive outings from Weaver before investing.

Angels | Jered Weaver threw bullpen session

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 16:54:05 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) threw a full bullpen session Saturday, July 18, and he'll throw his second simulated game Tuesday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) had allowed at least four earned runs in four consecutive starts before going on the disabled list. Weaver is only an option in AL-only leagues or deeper mixed leagues, and he should be avoided on FantasyScore in the early going.

Angels | Return target for Jered Weaver

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 13:40:22 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) will throw his next simulated game Monday, July 20, or Tuesday, July 21. The soonest he could return to the starting rotation would be Saturday, July 25, or Sunday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: It would be ill-advised to rush Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) back into your starting lineup in the majority of fantasy formats, including FantasyScore. He is struggling through his worst season in nearly a decade. Weaver should be reserved to deep mixed leagues and spot starting in daily games.

Angels | Jered Weaver talks return

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 13:04:28 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) "felt good" during his three-inning, 50-pitch simulated game Thursday, July 16. He will pitch another sim game in two to three days and be ready to return "five days after that."

Fantasy Tip: Weaver's ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) ERA and WHIP climbed in three consecutive seasons entering 2015, and the 32-year-old veteran's velocity has fallen off the map. Still, until this year, he has maintained solid numbers, and even at times this season, he has looked the part of an All-Star. Weaver should be reserved for deep mixed leagues and spot starting in favorable matchups at FantasyScore.
