Angels | Jered Weaver roughed up by Houston

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 18:46:52 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver allowed six earned runs, seven hits and four walks over 5 1/3 innings with three strikeouts in a loss Wednesday, June 29, against the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver slipped below .500 on the season, and he has a 5.51 ERA with a subpar 1.48 WHIP. His numbers across the board are well over his career averages and he is only worth using in larger AL-only fantasy formats at this point of his career.

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 17:37:34 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver tossed a three-hit shutout against the Oakland Athletics Sunday, June 19, walking one and striking out one.

Angels | Jered Weaver rocked Monday

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 05:22:28 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver took the loss and dropped to 5-6 overall Monday, June 13, in a 9-4 defeat against the Minnesota Twins. Weaver allowed eight hits and six runs in six innings, taking his fifth loss in seven starts. The veteran right-hander has allowed 18 homers this season, the most in the majors.

Fantasy Tip: It is unknown whether Weaver's preseason injury issues, or just plain ineffectiveness, is at fault here, but if this continues the team might step in and shut Weaver down or address the problem. It is clear Weaver is slumping and should not be used in any format.

Angels | Jered Weaver discusses his struggles

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 13:18:31 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver said his lack of fastball velocity has limited the deception and effectiveness of his changeup.

"When you're not throwing as hard velocity-wise, it's not going to have the same effect," Weaver said. "I'm still working hard to try to get some velo back, and trying to maintain it. Until that happens, it's probably not going to be as effective a pitch as it was in the past."

Fantasy Tip: Weaver's analysis sounds as encouraging as his current 5.56 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 5.4 K/9 look. He cannot be started with confidence, and he shouldn't be owned outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Even in those deep settings, there isn't a lot to be optimistic about.

Angels | Jered Weaver punished in the Bronx

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 22:02:36 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver allowed six earned runs, nine hits and two walks with just two strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings in a loss Wednesday, June 8, against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver has struggled for most of the season, and he currently sits with a 5-5 record, 5.56 ERA and dismal 1.52 WHIP which isn't helping anyone. His fantasy appeal is limited to AL-only leagues right now, and when he pitches during the daytime. Oddly enough, he is 3-0 with a 2.96 ERA in four day outings.

Angels | Solid outing for Jered Weaver

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 20:26:59 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver allowed two runs on six hits while walking one and striking out five over six innings in a win over the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, June 3.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver's quality outings have been few and far between, and he remains a fringe option in AL-only formats.

Astros | Colby Rasmus out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 16:36:04 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus is out of the starting lineup Saturday, May 28, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. OF Jake Marisnick is in for Ausmus and will hit eighth against Angels SP Jered Weaver.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a normal off night for Rasmus, who is hitting .190 in the past week and slumping badly at the plate. Marisnick has been decent in the field for Houston but bad at the plate, and his fantasy value is minimal as a result.

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.
