Jered Weaver minor league update

Postby johnsamo » Sat Jun 24, 2006 12:19 am

Threw a CG shut out, no hitter till the 7th, 14Ks.... Makes me wonder if somebody told him to get ready for the show.

lol, it's incredible that the guy can just turn it on and off like that :-)

yeah, sounds like someone told him to stop dicking around if he wants to come back sooner ;-D

Well his two starts will get him through his minimum 10-day stint in the minors. Is it possible his next start is back in the bigs?

If you're lucky that'll be the case. He's so talented most of us have to keep him on our teams so as not to risk someone picking him up and reaping the rewards.

I kept him... now way the Angels are gonna keep him down long... They're just finallizing a deal to open a slot but they had to make sure Colon was back. His first start was encouraging, if there are no setbacks this next start, whatever deal(s) that happens will probably go down.

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....

edited to add the article:

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.
-- Kenneth K., Los Angeles


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.
