The Los Angeles Angels, 3.5 games out of a Wild Card position in the American League, may be without Jered Weaver longer than expected.

Weaver was hit by a come-backer during Sunday’s start against the Mariners, but stayed in the game after being examined by trainers. The Angels later revealed that Weaver suffered bruised right shoulder on the play with manager Mike Scioscia adding that the team would be in a wait-and-see mode concerning his next start. That next start has now been pushed back to next week, and with a trip to Dr. Lewis Yocum now in the cards, could Weaver be in jeopardy of missing more than just the one start?
On the season, Weaver has a 2.86 ERA, 3.75 FIP and 2.8 fWAR in 25 starts. He recorded baseball’s second no-hitter of the season back on May 2nd, when he blanked the Twins.
