Jered Weaver pitches well in his return from the disabled list

Jered Weaver landed on the disabled list for seven weeks after fracturing his left elbow. But he’s all better now and last night showed he was healthy with a win over the Dodgers. Well, to the extent that a win over the Dodgers shows us a lot.

In reality it was a mixed bag. The line was nice: six innings, five hit, one earned-run and seven strikeouts.  Still, he was mostly sitting in the 80s with his fastball. Which is better than it was before he was DL’d, but is still off from where he is supposed to be when things are going right.

This could be merely a function of him not having is strength up to 100% yet. In the meantime, I think the Angels will take whatever Weaver can give them, thank you very much.

    It was good to see him back, partly because he’s better than everyone else on the staff, but mostly because it enhances the odds of Blanton heading to the bullpen in a week.
