The initial X-rays came back negative, but as Jered Weaver continued to feel pain and weakness in his left elbow, additional tests were run. Now, the Los Angeles Angels say their ace righty has a broken non-throwing elbow and will be out for four to six weeks. According to Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com, Weaver is expected to miss five to seven starts because of the injury. The team has Garrett Richards available to take the spot in the rotation and has already purchased Dane De La Rosa's contract from Triple- A to fill out the 25-man roster. The injury is particularly troubling considering the Angels surprising lack of offense this year so far. With the lineup they throw out there, runs should come easier than they are. The team has been reliant on the pitching of Weaver and C.J. Wilson, but now they will have to turn toward their offense to help carry them through Weaver's DL stint. The Angels are 2-4 on the season and have been out scores by one run overall on the year. They've scored more than four runs just once on the season. The offense has to pick it up if Los Angeles is going to overcome Weaver's injury. Of course, Richards will have to step up as well. The Angels can't afford for their pitching to fall off the map while waiting for their offense to come around. Weaver struggled in his second start of the season. He went five innings, gave up seven hits and five runs, and had to leave with the elbow injury. Weaver was trying to avoid a ball hit back up the middle during that game. He avoided the ball but landed awkwardly on his left elbow.
