Good news for the suddenly-surging Angels.

According to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times, right-handed starter Jered Weaver threw extended long toss from a distance of 300 feet on Wednesday afternoon and is on pace to be activated from the 15-day disabled list as soon as he’s eligible.

Weaver was disabled on May 29 after straining his lower back. He’s allowed to return on June 13.

The 29-year-old right-hander has registered a stellar 2.61 ERA and 0.93 WHIP in 69 innings this season.

The Halos have won 11 of their last 14 games and are slowly gaining on the Rangers in the AL West.
