JERED WEAVER RUMORS & GOSSIP
Today is the first day of June, which means it’s time for our updated MLB power rankings. The end of each month marks a good time to evaluate where each team stands in the league as a whole.

Heading into the 2015 season, Jered Weaver owned the fifth-lowest ground-ball rate (33.2%) among starting pitchers with at least 600 innings pitched this century. If you bumped that minimum up to 1250 IP, Weaver stood alone at the top. In no season of his career did his GB rate eclipse 36%, and he almost never induced more grounders than fly balls in any one game. Last year, for...
After his last successful start, Jered Weaver was telling Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com what he did to solve his early season problems:
“I’m just not jerking off the ball anymore.”
Uh, well, yeah. That seems like a bad idea. I was never a pitcher, but I’m pretty sure that is not what you are supposed to do to the ball. So what are you supposed to do?
“My front side was kind...

The Los Angeles Angels (21-20) seem to be pulling themselves out of an early season gutter. They have won seven out of their last 10 games. Their Ace, Jered Weaver’s ERA is dipping down to a respectable level, 4.37. And Kole Calhoun is making everyone in Halo nation forget about Josh Hamilton.

Given his 6-plus ERA entering the game, going nine scoreless innings was a big deal, so he was asked interviewed by FOX Sports’ Alex Curry...Read More
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. Weaver had already been doused with a bucket of Gatorade when the water bottle (possibly Aquafina?) was tossed in his direction, nailing him right in the chest. Weaver abruptly ended...
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 […]

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.
Suffice to say, the start of the 2015 season has not been ideal for the Angels...
