Jered Weaver threw 60 pitches in what Alden Gonzalez of called a “high intensity bullpen session” yesterday and felt so good that he declared himself ready to begin a minor-league rehab assignment.

Or more accurately pitch one rehab game and then rejoin the Angels’ rotation, because Weaver made it clear he doesn’t think he’ll need a long stint in the minors before returning from a broken left elbow.

Of course, Weaver isn’t making the call on his recovery timetable and manager Mike Scioscia reiterated to Gonzalez that the plan is for the right-hander to make at least two rehab starts. That means he won’t be back until late this month or early next month. He was injured on April 7.

    It won’t completely change the Angels’ fortunes but it won’t hurt. Hope he can be back healthy soon.

    Can he pitch 5 days in a row and pitch relief?
    Hell, trade him!
