Angels | Jered Weaver throws bullpen

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 16:16:42 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session that consisted of all fastballs Monday, June 29, and he felt good. He will throw another session in a couple of days and feature all of his pitches.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) won't suddenly gain velocity after rehabbing his hip injury. You'll have to live with fewer strikeouts and more contact from him from here on out, which makes him strictly a matchup play on FantasyScore and in traditional leagues, preferably when he starts at home.

Angels | Jered Weaver thinks he'll return soon

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 16:16:15 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) played light catch from 90 feet Friday, June 26, and he doesn't think he'll need to go on a rehab assignment before being activated from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has been dealing with a drastically reduced velocity all year and now has an injury on top of it. That's not exactly a combination that will have his owners optimistic for a turnaround in the second half. Regardless, he'll likely re-enter the rotation when he's ready and bump Andrew Heaney back to the minors. You'll want to avoid Weaver on FantasyScore for his first start back and be extremely careful on how you play him moving forward.

Angels | Jered Weaver might miss two starts

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 18:12:30 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) might miss just two starts, and the club is hopeful he can return shortly after the All-Star break. The team needs a fifth starter June 30 and July 11.

Fantasy Tip: With Weaver on the shelf, Cory Rasmus is a player who could fill in. Andrew Heaney, Drew Rucinski, Alex Sanabia, Nick Tropeano and Adam Wilk are also options.

Angels | No structural damage for Jered Weaver

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 16:15:12 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver's (hip) tests showed no structural damage in his hip. He will not pick up a ball for five days and will be re-evaluated after that.

Fantasy Tip: It's good news for Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) owners, but it won't hide the fact that his velocity has been down considerably and he is fanning a career-low 4.6 hitters per nine innings. You can argue that Weaver isn't worth the roster spot in shallow mixed leagues. At FantasyScore, he's strictly a matchup play, preferably when pitching at home in a pitcher-friendly environment. Get the jump in AL-only leagues and speculate on Andrew Heaney or Nick Tropeano as a rotation replacement for Weaver.

Angels | Jered Weaver to have MRI

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 09:10:36 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) will undergo an MRI exam on his left hip after being placed on the 15-day disabled list. He said he's been bothered by hip soreness for a while now, but he doesn't think it's related to his slump on the mound - he's lost four consecutive games after losing to the Oakland Athletics Saturday, June 20. The Angels are taking a cautious approach to Weaver after he allowed 19 earned runs in 26 innings since May 30.

Fantasy Tip: If you don't have the room to stash Weaver in a DL spot in a shallow mixed league, cutting him isn't the end of the world. The Halos are likely to turn to either Andrew Heaney or Nick Tropeano to fill the rotation void. Whoever receives the nod should be added in deep mixed and AL-only leagues, but be cautious when using them on FantasyScore.

Angels | Jered Weaver to DL

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 13:27:08 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, June 21. OF Alfredo Marte was recalled from Class AAA Salt Lake City in a corresponding roster move.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is due for an MRI and other tests on Monday, June 22, to determine the severity of the injury. Weaver, who is 0-4 with a 6.58 ERA in his last four starts, may have been battling this injury for a while. SP Andrew Heaney may be the top candidate to replace Weaver, but look to SP Nick Tropeano, RP Jose Alvarez and RP Corey Rasmus.

Angels | Jered Weaver hit hard

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 18:41:55 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver allowed seven runs on nine hits in 5 2/3 innings against the New York Yankees Friday, June 5.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) entered the game with an 8.17 ERA at Yankee Stadium, so the poor showing wasn't a total surprise. Weaver has been hot and cold in general this season, so it might not be a bad idea to avoid him at FantasyScore in his next start to make sure tonight's outing isn't the start of another skid.

Angels | Jered Weaver has struggled in Bronx

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 10:33:21 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver is 1-3 with an 8.60 ERA in his last five regular season starts at the New York Yankees, but he hasn't faced the team there since 2013. Weaver is 4-0 with a 1.98 ERA in his last five starts after going 0-4 with a 6.29 ERA in his first six starts.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has allowed more earned runs and more home runs on the road this year, making his start tonight at Yankee Stadium one to avoid on FantasyScore, especially given his history there. His velocity hasn't gone up at all during his recent solid stretch, either.

Angels | Homer support saves Jered Weaver

Sun, 31 May 2015 04:37:18 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver won Saturday, May 30, as his team beat the Detroit Tigers 8-6. The Angels homered five times in the first two innings to support Weaver. In his previous 10 starts the Angels only homered six times.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) won't get this type of support in every game, but as long as the Angels are hitting very well like this then he becomes a more attractive FantasyScore pitcher.

Angels | Jered Weaver continues resurgence

Wed, 20 May 2015 19:34:29 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver continued his bounce back from a poor start to the 2015 season Wednesday, May 20, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Weaver allowed four hits and three runs, but picked up his third consecutive win. Weaver is 3-0 with a 1.54 ERA in his last three outings after losing four of his first six.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) hasn't struck out more than six batters in any one outing, drastically limiting his potential on FantasyScore. Weaver represents too much risk without the potential upside to be a regular FantasyScore option.
