Angels right-hander Jered Weaver was forced to leave tonight’s start against the Blue Jays due to lower back tightness.

Weaver tossed two perfect innings before exiting. He tweaked something on his warm-up pitches before the third inning and was replaced by Matt Shoemaker. It sounds like something that might not cost him a start, though we should know more in the next couple of days.

Weaver, 31, owns a 3.50 ERA and 93/33 K/BB ratio in 118 1/3 innings over 19 starts this season.

    It will definitely cost him a start. He’s slated to throw Sunday right before the break. They will not pitch him and let him get the extra rest over the break
