Jered Weaver was scratched from yesterday’s scheduled start against the Mariners due to lingering forearm tightness, but he still hopes to go into the offseason with some peace of mind.
Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports that Weaver’s forearm issue wasn’t serious enough to warrant an MRI exam and that he plans to play catch today. Barring any setbacks, he plans to make his final start of the season next Wednesday against the Athletics.
Weaver is 10-8 with a 3.36 ERA and 115/36 K/BB ratio over 147 1/3 innings this season. This marks the second straight year that he has failed to reach 200 innings. The 30-year-old right-hander still has three years and $54 million remaining on his contract.
