Jered Weaver and Bartolo Colon both threw in minor-league games today and both were impressive. Weaver threw 46 pitches while Colon threw 29. Weaver had the better outing of the two giving up just two hits and no runs in three innings. Colon gave up two runs (one earned) in two innings.
I thought (Weaver) was terrific, manager Mike Scioscia said. He threw some good breaking balls, some good offspeed pitches. That’s a great first step. We’ll see how he comes out of it and hopefully five days later he’ll be able to increase it.
