Jered Weaver to start Saturday?

Postby bigken117 » Wed May 03, 2006 12:26 pm

LA Times wrote:The Angels, confident that Jered Weaver is ready for the major leagues after one month at triple A, are leaning toward starting him Saturday in Toronto and giving him the chance to replace Bartolo Colon in the rotation.

As Colon's recovery from a shoulder injury lingers, the Angels believe they might be better served with Weaver in the rotation and Hector Carrasco back in the bullpen.

The Angels initially expected Colon to miss two starts. Carrasco has made three starts in his place, most impressively Monday, when he held the Oakland Athletics to one run in six innings.

Tuesday, however, Manager Mike Scioscia said Carrasco would not necessarily get another start. Scioscia said the team would consider Carrasco and "look at some other avenues."

Weaver is 2-1 with a 3.41 earned-run average at Salt Lake, with five walks and 38 strikeouts in 29 innings. In his last appearance, he struck out 12 in six innings.

The Angels selected him from Long Beach State in the first round of the June 2004 draft and signed him 11 months later, for a club-record $4-million bonus. Weaver, a 23-year-old right-hander, has made seven appearances in Class A, eight at double A and five at triple A.

Colon played catch Monday and Tuesday but is expected to be out several more weeks.


Certainly worth mointoring ;-D

if that's the case, that would be a tough place/lineup for his first start of the year in the majors.

I have him in a deep keeper so I'm definitely liking the news that they're considering it. Carrasco/bad Weaver...not helping too much.
