Finally some good news for the Anaheim Angels.

According to beat writer Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times, staff ace Jered Weaver could be activated from the disabled list for a start next week if everything goes well during his appearance in an extended spring training game on Wednesday.

Weaver has been out since suffering a fracture in his left (non-throwing) elbow while trying to move out of the way of a comebacker on April 7 at Rangers Ballpark In Arlington. He was originally expected to miss four-to-six weeks. It’ll take him closer to seven.

Weaver, who earned Cy Young votes in 2012, had thrown just 11 total innings before hitting the shelf.

The Angels’ hideous 4.77 team ERA ranks 28th in the major leagues, in front of only the Blue Jays and Astros. Which probably played a big role in Anaheim’s decision to rush Weaver back without a rehab start.

      They are talking about Jared. Not Jeff.
