Jered Weaver only made it through 5.2 innings on Monday, allowing five runs on nine hits and two walks. He struck out five.

Fantasy Impact: The loss brings Weaver's record to 7-12 and his ERA up to 4.86, the highest it has been since Weaver stumbled through April and May. He is not a good fantasy option right now, and though he doesn't walk many batters, he's striking very few out and giving up far too many hits.

A forgettable season continued for the Angels on Wednesday, as starter Jered Weaver failed to make it through five innings, taking his 11th loss of the season and getting ejected without warning after hitting Kyle Seager.

Fantasy Impact: Weaver allowed three runs on six hits and a walk, striking out three Mariners. With an ERA- of 124 for the season, Weaver has regressed well beyond his careers average of 84, and done so for only the second time in his career. He has also struggled in his recent careers versus the Mariners, posting a 4.75 ERA since the end of last season against them.

Fantasy Impact: The one-time ace dropped off the fantasy radar this season. Weaver posted a 4.75 ERA in 15 starts while watching his SO/9 drop 4.6. Considering Andrew Heaney's brilliance, Weaver's return to the rotation could force Matt Shoemaker to the bullpen.

Jered Weaver allowed four earned runs on eight hits in 7 2/3 innings against the Rays on Wednesday. He also walked three and struckout one in the outing.

Fantasy Impact: Weaver's strikeout numbers continue to plummet (4.39 K/9), his ERA keeps rising (now 4.61), and he just can't seem to get anything going. This start was an improvement over his seven-run disaster against the Yankees, but that's about the only positive note. Only use Weaver in AL-Only leagues at this point.

Jered Weaver allowed seven earned runs on nine hits in 5 2/3 innings against the Yankees on Friday. He also struckout two in the outing.

Fantasy Impact: Five of the seven runs came off of three homers, including two to the light-hitting Stephen Drew. Weaver was never able to get comfortable in the game, allowing runs in the 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 6th innings before taking his exit. Weaver is more name than ability at this point, as his skills have deteriorated in each of the last five seasons, and his K/9 this year is at a pitiful 4.72.

Jered Weaver allowed three earned runs on nine hits in 6 1/3 innings against the Tigers on Saturday. He also struckout three in the outing.

Fantasy Impact: Weaver had yet another solid (if unspectacular) outing, with his fifth QS in a row, earning his fourth win of the season on Saturday. His pen almost cost him the W, giving up three runs after he took his exit, but they managed to hold on. Weaver hasn't been his old dominate self this season, but he's a decent pitcher worth using in all but the most shallow of mixed leagues.

Jered Weaver allowed one earned run on three hits in 7 1/3 innings against the Orioles on Friday. He also walked one and struckout three in the outing.

Fantasy Impact: Weaver has looked like the ace of old in his last two starts, allowing only one run in 16 1/3 IP. The one run allowed on Friday was a solo-homer in the eighth, and it didn't prove costly for the Angels. Weaver's ERA is still high at 4.44, but he's viable in deeper formats, and he should be on the radar of fantasy owners in shallow mixed leagues.

Jered Weaver allowed five earned runs on ten hits in five innings against the Giants on Sunday. He had two strikeouts and one walk in the outing.

Fantasy Impact: Weaver began his start on Sunday in the worst way possible, giving up back-to-back homers to the first two batters he faced, including on the opening pitch to Aoki. It didn't get better from there as he proceeded to give up three more runs before being taken out in the fifth inning. At this point Weaver has only had two quality starts in five games, and he's not striking out enough bats (3.93 K/9) to be worth using in mixed leagues. AL-Only owners should be prepared to make the cut if things don't improve soon.

Jered Weaver went seven innings but gave up six runs on six hits and only struke out one.

Fantasy Impact: It was another disappointing outing for the 32 year old veteran. He's had a rough start to the beginning of the season with a 5.83 ERA and a 13/4 K/B ratio in 29 1/3 innings. His ERA has gone up the last three years so it may be time to consider other options.


Jered Weaver gave up six runs over four and one third innings on Saturday night. Mike Moustakas and Salvador Perez each hit a home run off Weaver, who walked four batters and struck out five. Weaver also struggled in his first start, when he gave up four runs in six innings.

Fantasy Impact: Weaver has seen his FIP rise from 3.06 in 2010 to 4.19 in 2014, while his K rate has dropped from 26% to 19%. He threw only 56% strikes in this start, and his pitches this year are all down in velocity from 2015. His next start is in Oakland, where he had a 5.68 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP in 2014. The A's have averaged six runs per game in the first week, which is second in the majors. Consider benching him if you have other weekly league options.

Angels starter Jered Weaver pitched six innings on Opening Day against the Seattle Mariners but gave up four runs and eight hits. He struck out one batter and gave up a fifth inning solo home run to Dustin Ackley.

Fantasy Impact: Weaver threw 90 pitches, of which 54 were strikes, which is around the 60/40 split he had in 2014. Seth Smith had Weaver's number today, as he cracked two doubles and one single off the veteran. His next start is Saturday, April 11th against the Royals at home.

Jered Weaver pitched 5 innings today, while only allowing one run. The run was a home run off the bat of Robinson Chirinos, and it was also the only hit Weaver allowed. Weaver retired 15 of the 16 batters he faced today, with 5 coming via the strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Jered Weaver is lined up to be the Angels opening day starter again this year, and should be a big part of their rotation. Weaver has started at least 30 games every year except once since his rookie year, and is very dependable. He will not be an elite pitcher this year, but he will be the guy that goes out every time and gets the job done.
