Found May 08, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Los Angeles Angels are a sickening 10 games under .500 this season - sickening if you are GM Jerry DiPoto or owner Arte Moreno.  Sickening if you are an Angels fan or an Angels player.  However, one help is on the way.  Ryan Madson is inching closer to a return, and Jered Weaver is set to throw off a mound for the first time since fracturing his elbow says Alden Gonzalez of Weaver (Thursday bullpen) and Madson (extended spring on Wednesday) making progress. Burnett (no throwing for another week) takes step back. — Alden Gonzalez (@Alden_Gonzalez) May 7, 2013 Weaver suffered a fractured elbow on April 8th when he tried to get out of the way of a line drive back up the middle.  Weaver managed to avoid the ball but fell awkwardly on his elbow.  The injury was thought to minor initially, but soon after, the fracture was revealed.  Fortunately, he did not require surgery, but Weaver's timetable for return was set at 8-10 weeks. As Weaver progresses through his rehab, he will get more bullpen action.  His first bullpen on Thursday will mark the first time Weaver has thrown off a mound since the injury.  In the mean time, he has worked on strengthening the elbow and arm while playing catch when he could. The Angels are struggling mightily right now, and Weaver's return could be just what they need.  He is still not quite ready to start a rehab assignment, but that should come soon.  Just not soon enough for Los Angeles who is 2-8 in their last 10 games. Weaver was having a rough start to the season.  In his two starts, his ERA was at 4.91.  However, once he returns, Weaver will be able to lower that ERA quickly.

Extension suggestion: Mark Trumbo

As the baseball world patiently waits for the Angels and Mike Trout to do the right thing and agree to a lengthy and borderline ridiculous contract extension, there are other concerns that need to be addressed.
