nope would seem to be right. i read that he is on the same pitch schedule that bartolo colon is on. so if something happens to colon, then they can bring him back up with minimal scheduling/pitching routine issues...
i get clemens back and lose weaver in the same week....oh well....

If the Angels had any sense, they would send back Hector Carrasco and Jeff Weaver back to Triple-A and keep Jered Weaver, who has been doing well.

Sending Jered Weaver back to Salt Lake was a tough decision for the Angels, but he'll be back, and probably sooner than later. He'll be able to start regularly in the Minors and he's on the same schedule as Bartolo Colon in the event Colon suffers a setback to his shoulder.
A reason to hang on to Jeff Weaver in the rotation is it allows him to keep starting. Not only has he pitched better so that could help the team but it also allows the team to showcase him in any potential trades. His value is higher as a starter than a reliever. As for Carrasco, he fills a role as setup man, long man, mop-up and spot-starter.
Jered Weaver pitched well enough to stick around and if he maintains that edge, he'll be back at some point this season.
