Angels | Jered Weaver working on his curve

Sun, 22 May 2016 18:33:15 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver allowed two runs on five hits while walking one and striking out six over seven innings in a win over the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, May 22, and he credited consistency with his curveball for the solid outing.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver's strong outings are few and far between at this point, and he should be reserved for AL-only leagues.

Angels | Jered Weaver solid in defeat

Tue, 17 May 2016 23:18:16 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver matched his season high by going seven innings in his start Tuesday, May 17, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He allowed four runs (three earned) on 10 hits, including two home runs, and two walks, while striking out two.

Fantasy Tip: A nice bounce-back effort from Weaver, who was lit up in his previous outing when the Cardinals shellacked him for eight runs in four innings. It's also basically what you hope to get from Weaver these days, as owners know he won't provide many strikeouts, but here he managed to minimize the damage over seven innings. He's not an option to lean on in standard leagues.

Angels | Jered Weaver bombed in latest outing

Fri, 13 May 2016 04:58:07 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver gave up nine hits and eight runs in over four innings of work Thursday, May 12. The Angels lost, 12-10, to the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver has been inconsistent through his first five decisions. He looked solid early on but the Cardinals then got to him and made the game an offensive nightmare. There have been some injury concerns with Weaver this season, but right now he stands at 3-2 overall. With the offensive woes of the Angels and the team on a losing string, you may want to relegate Weaver to the bench for the time being.

Angels | Jered Weaver looks to keep ball in yard

Fri, 06 May 2016 23:43:53 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver is scheduled to face the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday, May 7. He allowed seven runs and 11 hits over five innings in his most recent start, and he has allowed eight homers in his past five outings against the Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver has lost a little velocity over the years, but he is still 3-1 using veteran craftiness to get by. Still, he is only worth using in AL-only fantasy leagues and deeper mixed formats.

Angels | Jered Weaver tosses tidy outing

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 14:53:33 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver allowed a single run on three hits and two walks with two strikeouts through seven innings to record his second win of the season against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, April 21.

Fantasy Tip: Don't be fooled by the strong outing from Weaver, especially because he has just seven strikeouts through his first 17 1/3 innings this season. The veteran has limited fantasy value. Additionally, his ERA had climbed four consecutive years leading into 2016. Weaver is nothing more than a streaming option in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Angels | Jered Weaver using lower arm slot

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 20:24:19 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (neck, shoulder) allowed one run on six hits over six innings in a win over the Texas Rangers Sunday, April 10, and said the stiffness he dealt with this spring is improving. He is also using a lower arm slot to help make his delivery more comfortable and improve the speed of his fastball. "The arm slot is coming back," Weaver said. "There's no tightness in my shoulder, no tightness in my back, no tightness in my hip. I'm feeling healthy. I can pitch like this for the rest of the season, but I know it's only going to get better."

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Weaver is doing everything he can to remain effective, but he is not the same pitcher that was in the Cy Young conversation a few seasons ago. At best, he figures to be a matchup play if he remains healthy.

Angels | Jered Weaver says he's starting Sunday

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 15:36:38 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (neck, back) said he will start Sunday, April 10, after he hit 86 mph on the radar gun in a simulated game Tuesday, April 5.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver has quickly fallen in fantasy circles because of decreased velocity and injuries. He fails to miss many bats with his batting practice fastball and also struggles to keep the ball in the yard. That's not a combination any fantasy owners wants on their staff.

Angels | Jered Weaver talks mound approach

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 15:43:21 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver was experimenting with pitches during his minor league start Wednesday, March 30. "When you are throwing stuff that I'm throwing, you have to invent some stuff to keep people off balance," Weaver said. "It was pretty fun actually."

Fantasy Tip: It isn't likely to be much fun for Weaver and his fantasy owners next week against major league hitters. With his career clearly in decline, view the veteran as a low-end arm in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. A crafty mound routine can only mask his shortcomings for so long, after all.

Angels | Jered Weaver beat around in minors start

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 14:39:36 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver allowed a three-run and solo home run through six innings of a minor league start Wednesday, March 30. He also struck out four batters and walked one.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver is battling concerns around his low velocity, and his ERA has increased in four consecutive seasons and settled at a confidence-shattering 4.64 last year. He relies on a smoke-and-mirrors approach on the mound, and allowing two home runs to minor league hitters Wednesday should raise more red flags. Weaver is nothing more than a low-end option in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

Angels | Jered Weaver to open on DL?

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 10:45:53 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (neck, back) is a candidate to open the season on the disabled list. He could make another spring start April 4 or 5 and make his season debut April 10 or 11.

Fantasy Tip: This is basically a procedural move, as the Angels won't need a fifth starter until after the first week of the season, and they can give Weaver some more rest. His injury and continued drop in velocity makes him extremely hittable these days. You'll likely want to avoid Weaver in all fantasy formats.
