JERED WEAVER NEWS

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. Then pitchers like Jered Weaver come along who taunt us with their misshapen pieces that don’t quite fit right. Weaver’s...

AngelsWin.com 2015 Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Primer Part IV

By Robert Cunningham, AngelsWin.com Columnist -  Starting Rotation Pitchers So defining and finding the ideal starting pitcher is probably a lot more difficult than a position player in some respects. Ideally that pitcher would be able to get both left-handed and right-handed hitters out equally well posting a good ERA- number in the process. Additionally they would field...

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 Players Power Rankings – ALDS edition

In a very short-sighted move, I promised to do a power ranking at the end of each postseason series for Angels. That means I am now faced with the dubious task of ranking all the awfulness that emerged from the ALDS. Well, I’m not one to break a promise. Here we go. And, yes, someone did deserve to be ranked first. RANK PLAYER COMMENTS 1Jered Weaver - Weaver gave the Angels...

ALDS Game 1 Boxscore Breakdown: Margins – Royals 3, Angels 2

Jered Weaver’s Declining Deception

I think we’ve known since, oh, he debuted that Jered Weaver is capable of over-performing his pure stuff. He doesn’t blow anyone away, and he’s never blown anyone away, but he’s been terrific nevertheless, in part because of his home stadium but in bigger part because of something about his delivery. At least, that’s the […]

Boxscore Breakdown #160: Tuned up – Mariners 4, Angels 3

This was supposed to be a nice tune up game for Jered Weaver as he readied himself for Game 1 of the ALDS. Instead, he was the one that got tuned up. In a fitting piece of symmetry, Weaver ended his regular season as he began it, with a middling and mildly concerning loss at the hands of the Mariners. Gone was the velocity spike that Weaver had seen in his last two starts. In those...

Angels ace Weaver finding old form at perfect time of year

It's been a few years since Jered Weaver has pitched without some sort of fatigue or soreness. He never wanted to talk about it; he never really even disclosed it to anyone other than the Angels' team trainers; but it had more of an effect on the Halos' ace than most ever knew.  Weaver's workload increased to career-high levels in 2010 and 2011. He handled it and the numbers proved...
