ANAHEIM, Calif. Angels pitcher Jered Weaver took another significant step forward in his rehab from a broken left elbow, throwing 75 pitches in an extended spring training game Wednesday at Scottsdale, Ariz.
Facing Colorados extended spring team, Weaver gave up one run and six hits in 5 23 innings. He threw 62 strikes, did not walk a batter and struck out nine.
The Angels want to see how Weaver feels coming out of the start before deciding their next step. Weaver is scheduled to join the team Thursday in Kansas City for the start of a four-game trip.
We have to look at Weave, see where he is, let him throw his bullpen (session) and see if he needs more work in a rehab setting or if hes ready to get after it with us, Scioscia said.
Weaver hasnt pitched in a game since suffering the injury to his non-throwing arm on April 7 at Texas. Last Friday, he threw a 60-pitch, four-inning simulated game at Angel Stadium.
The best case is that were going to fold him back into our rotation ...
