Daily SP Rankings: Wednesday, May 20

On Wednesday just 11 of the 30 starters rate average or better, and there’s a very high concentration of sub-90 starters. One starter who does rate average is Jered Weaver, which is still tough for me to believe given what we’ve seen from him this season. Then again, his last two starts have been much more impressive.

Boxscore Breakdown #30: Dream or Weaver? – Angels 2, Astros 0

Am I dreaming or did Jered Weaver throw a complete game shutout? I’m not kidding, that happened, right? Less than a week ago we were all beginning rough outlines for our eulogy to Jered’s career, but then he comes out and does this. And, I almost hesitate to say this, but I think it kind of might be for real… maybe… possibly??? First off, his velocity was up one entire...

Los Angeles Angels pitcher Jered Weaver gave his teammates the death stare after being hit with a water bottle during his postgame interview after Friday night's complete game shutout over Houston.

How do the Angels fix Jered Weaver?

How do the Angels fix Jered Weaver? That’s the question every Angels fan wants to know. Heck, that’s what the Angels and Weaver themselves want to know. The one-time ace is broken, perhaps irretrievably so. His velocity is gone and so is his effectiveness. Given his contract and stature on the roster and among the fans, the Angels simply have to find a way to get Weaver back...

Visualizing Jered Weaver’s Hittability

It’s not just a spring-training blip anymore. For one or two games, you can dismiss a pitcher working with reduced velocity. Sometimes mechanics can be slightly off. Sometimes a pitcher can just be under the weather. Jered Weaver‘s gone beyond that. His velocity was way down in spring training, and it’s carried over into each […]

Weaver struggling to find answers for diminished velocity, effectiveness

Los Angeles Angels ace Jered Weaver has had a tough go of things so far in 2015. Through six starts, he has yet to pick up a victory, currently sitting at 0-4 with a 6.29 ERA. After a 2014 campaign that found him post an 18-9 record atop the Halos' rotation, this is a rather unexpected situation for the usually effective right-hander.His new string of iffy outings comes at a time...

Los Angeles Angels: Falling Angels

Shortstop Erik Aybar has hit a dismal .204 on the year. It is the third of May in 2015 and the Los Angeles Angels (11-14) find themselves seven games behind the A.L. West leading Houston Astros (18-7). But the Astros are the least of the Angels problems. At the moment, the Angels are their worst enemy.
