Jered Weaver‘s 2012 ends on a slightly sour note.

The right-hander was pulled after the first inning of the Angels’ season finale Wednesday against the Mariners due to what’s being labeled “fatigue.” Not necessarily arm fatigue — just general exhaustion.

He allowed two earned runs on two hits and two walks before making his premature departure.

Weaver winds up having posted a 20-4 record, a 2.81 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP in 30 starts this season. The 29-year-old All-Star fanned 142 batters and issued only 45 walks in 188 2/3 innings while holding opponents to a .213/.262/.338 batting line.

Anaheim was eliminated from the American League Wild Card hunt on Monday night.

    A very good season for Weaver, despite missing a bit of time with an injury. He will get some Cy Young support, but will not win.

    We are fatigued from the overhyped Angels too.

    He’s got plenty of time to rest.

    Euphemism for “hung over”.
