Los Angeles Angels Send Jered Weaver to Disabled List
The Angels recalled Garrett Richards from Triple-A Salt Lake to take Weavers rotation spot.
Weaver tossed just 12 pitches and faced four batters Monday night against the Yankees before pulling up awkwardly after a pitch to second baseman Robinson Cano.
”It’s always disappointing knowing that you’re not going to be out there pitching the next two or three times,” Weaver said. ”But I’m a competitor, and I’m going to do whatever work I have to do to get back on that mound. … It was just a fluke thing. I just landed wrong, or I came off (the mound) wrong.”
Weaver is 6-1 with a 2.61 ERA this season, tied for second in the American League in victories.
