I think he's one of these guys who gets by on his name - he was such a highly touted prospect, people tend to go for him. He wasn't good last year, and he's had an atrocious spring.
Hasn't shown anything? Weaver basically had the same year as he did in 2006, only without the good luck in having that ERA stay relatively low. In '07, he had a bit of arm trouble (that's more nagging than the red flag variety) and still managed to pitch well even if his K rate fell off a bit, which recouped in 2008. He's still worth drafting in the later rounds, let alone to be picked up off FA.
