Jered Weaver returns Wednesday for Angels
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Angels ace Jered Weaver will return from the disabled list Wednesday to pitch against the San Francisco Giants.
Angels manager Mike Scioscia announced the plan Monday before opening an interleague series with the Giants.
Weaver has been out since leaving his May 28 start against the Yankees after just 12 pitches. Last season's AL Cy Young runner-up had lower back pain, but responded well to rest and treatment.
Scioscia says Weaver will only throw 80-90 pitches against the Giants, and a day off on Thursday will give him extra rest between starts.
Weaver is 6-1 with a 2.61 ERA, third-best in the AL. He has two complete games, including a no-hitter against Minnesota last month, and opponents are batting just .195 against him.
