Angels Ace Jered Weaver Suspended Six Games
Right-hander Jered Weaver has been suspended six games for throwing a pitch near the head of Detroit’s Alex Avila on Sunday, and Angels manager Mike Scioscia has been suspended for one game.
Weaver was ejected in the bottom of the seventh inning of a testy 3-2 loss to the Tigers on Sunday. He threw a pitch just over Avila’s head after Detroit’s Carlos Guillen showboated on a home run.
Weaver has also been fined an undisclosed amount as the Angels (59-50) are two games back from the 1st place Texas Rangers (61-48) in the American League West Division.
