Bats: R   Throws: R

Weaver went 5 1/3 giving up 10 hits and five runs while walking two and failing to record a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Pretty much a typical Weaver start, he falls to 8-10 on the season to go along with a 5.32 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP. He is not good for your fantasy squad

Weaver saw his record fall to 8-9 after giving up five runs (four earned) on eight hits in five innings. He also walked two and struck out three.

Fantasy Impact: Pretty much a typical Weaver start. He gave up two long balls to bring his total to 25 on the year, one off the league lead. His ERA now stands at 5.19 to go along with a 1.47 WHIP.

Jered Weaver fools Tampa Bay

Thu, Jul 7th 9:40am EDT
By Darren Smart

Weaver spun six innings of one run baseball, giving up just four hits while striking out five.

Fantasy Impact: The soft tossing veteran is able to come up with a good start every now and then. He hurled a complete-game shutout on June 19th, but sandwiched in between that showing and this latest one were two starts where he gave up 10 earned runs in in 10 innings. If you have the formula to figure out when he will toss a gem, then feel free to use him, otherwise his 5.27 ERA and 1.44 WHIP are best left alone.

Weaver was hit hard by Houston, as he went 5 1/3 innings, giving up six runs on seven hits while walking four and striking out three.

Fantasy Impact: The soft throwing veteran wasn't tricking Houston with his 80 mph heater on this day. He has fallen back in line after throwing a complete-game shutout back on June 19th and has now allowed 10 earned runs in his last two starts. Overall, he has a 5.51 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP.

Weaver went 4.2 innings, giving up four runs on eight hits while striking out four and walking one.

Fantasy Impact: It's a far cry from his last start when we threw a complete game shutout against this same Oakland team. The outing increased his ERA to an unsightly 5.24 to go along with a 1.44 WHIP. He shouldn't be anywhere near your roster if you want to contend.

Weaver threw a complete game shutout with three hits, one walk and a single strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: He is only 6-6 with an ERA of 5.10 so he has not been much of a fantasy option until Sunday. We shall see if this is an isolated performance or the start of a turn-around.

Jered Weaver went four innings and gave up eight earned runs in a 12-10 loss to the Cardinals on Thursday night. Weaver struck out five and allowed nine hits with three of them being home runs. He is now 3-2 on the season with an awful 6.10 ERA.

Fantasy Impact: Weaver almost was off the hook for the loss with a Angels rally in the ninth but fell short. Weaver has given up at least four earned runs in four of his last six starts. He is not worth the risk and shouldn't be touched in any fantasy formats.

Jered Weaver allowed four runs on nine hits over six innings in a 9-4 victory over the Royals on Tuesday. Weaver struck out four and walked two and was bailed out from his offense scoring five runs in the fifth inning to take a 8-4 lead. Weaver is now 3-0 on the season with a 3.86 ERA.

Fantasy Impact: Weaver has a respectable ERA, but what's alarming is that his fast ball is topping out at 87 MPH, which teams are bound to catch up to. Weaver doesn't have much fantasy relevance because he can not be trusted due to his inability to rack up strikeouts and is prone to letting up a lot of runs. He is best left on the waiver wire unless you are desperate for a two start pitcher. His next start is scheduled for Monday against the Brewers.

Jered Weaver failed to make it out of the fifth inning on Saturday, allowing four earned runs and gaining a no decision in the Angels' 6-4 loss to the Twins. Weaver allowed eight hits and two walks while striking out one batter in 4 1/3 innings of work.

Fantasy Impact: The 33-year-old had been much sharper in his first start of the season last Sunday versus the Rangers, but saw his ERA raise to 4.50 after Saturday. He will try to rebound from this brutal start next Thursday versus the White Sox in Chicago. Weaver isn't much of a fantasy option until he can show he can provide starts where he can get out of the fifth inning.

Weaver went six innings, allowing one run on six hits and a walk. He struck out four while picking up the win in Anaheim's 3-1 win.

Fantasy Impact: Weaver wasn't viewed as a viable fantasy option in most leagues entering the season due to questions about his velocity. Watch to see whether he can continue the momentum from this start before acquiring him.

Fantasy Impact: It's not clear what this condition means for Weaver, who's had issues with his velocity in recent seasons. That's especially been the case so far this spring. Weaver wasn't viewed as a viable fantasy option in most leagues entering the season prior to this news, so he's certainly off fantasy radars now.

Jered Weaver roughed up by Astros

Tue, Sep 22nd 8:12am EDT
By Roy Widrig

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.
