Player Profile #188: Jered Weaver | SP | LAA

We spend so much time talking about baseball stats like they’re all puzzle pieces. Take a pitcher’s K%, BB%, SIERA, Strand Rate, LD%, BABIP, ERA, and whatever else, and you can generally put them all together to create the picture of a pitcher’s season.

Los Angeles Angels: Two crucial offseason moves

The Los Angeles Angels had a very successful year. They came in first place in the AL West after finishing third in 2013 with a record under .500. The improvements the team made were so substantial that you could call the Angels “The 2014 Comeback Team of the Year”. However, despite their success, a first round exit against the Kansas City Royals is unacceptable. It is crucial...

Questioning Jered Weaver’s 2014 season

Jered Weaver somehow had one of the worst season of his career and gave us hope for his future all at the same time. How did he do that? No, seriously, I’m asking you how he did that. Is everyone aware that Jered Weaver isn’t an ace anymore? That’s easy: no. I wrote about how he isn’t an ace anymore earlier in the year and didn’t exactly receive a lot of warm responses...

Angels win; keep fingers crossed for Jered Weaver

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Fingers are crossed. If the Angels are lucky, nothing is seriously wrong with Jered Weaver. If there is, it could be a worrisome loss. On a night of historic importance for the franchise, Weaver tweaked his lower back in the second inning of the Angels' 5-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. He was forced to exit before the start of the third inning, but there remains...

Jered Weaver looks like old self again in Angels' win over Astros

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- In the ninth inning of a one-run game Jered Weaver, admittedly, doesn't have much concern for any baserunners, focusing on getting outs instead. The situation presented itself Wednesday night with the Angels ace clinging to a one-run lead in the ninth inning after hitting Astros rookie George Springer to put the potential tying run on base. Perhaps Springer knew...

Same ol’ Los Angeles Angels?

With the MLB regular season here, this is the time of year where literally every team has a chance and hope of tremendous year. The Los Angeles Angels came into the past two seasons with the highest of hopes and expectations and those quickly evaporated.   Jered Weaver didn’t have his best outing to open the season but left things close, which the bullpen was unable to do after...
