Jered Weaver could return to Angels rotation next week

Angels Opening Week
Battling a neck problem that plagued him in spring training, Jered Weaver will throw four innings in a simulated game on Tuesday, according to Angels manager Mike Scioscia.

Should the pitcher that started the last six Opening Day games for the Angels emerge healthy, he could join the Angels rotation on Sunday in the finale of a four-game series against Texas.

“We definitely want to see how he feels, just how he’s locating his pitches,” Scioscia said. “He felt great last workout so we don’t anticipate any setbacks. We’ll just see how he comes out of it and how he falls into our rotation.”
