Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Los Angeles Angels ace Jered Weaver has
tendinitis in his right shoulder and will miss this weekend's three-game
series against the Detroit Tigers.
Weaver flew to Los Angeles on Wednesday to receive an MRI and to get evaluated
by Dr. Lewis Yocum. He took a comebacker off his pitching shoulder on Sunday,
but it's unclear whether the tendinitis is a direct result from that incident.
Weaver was scheduled to start Friday's game. Instead, Ervin Santana will start
Friday against Max Scherzer, C.J. Wilson will start Saturday against Justin
Verlander and Zack Greinke will start Sunday against Anibal Sanchez.
Weaver is 16-4 with a 2.86 ERA this season. The Angels will announce Weaver's
next start over the weekend.
