Jered Weaver Out 4-6 Weeks With a Broken Non-Pitching Elbow


On Sunday, Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver fell awkwardly on his non-throwing arm and had to leave the game. Initially, the injury seemed like it was nothing serious, but that all changed when reports surfaced that Weaver would be out at least a month with a fracture in his elbow.

FOXSports.com senior baseball writer Ken Rosenthal initially passed along the bad news on Tuesday.

The Angels confirmed the news shortly after.

It is a major loss for the Angels who were hoping to get off to a hot start in 2013, but that will be a lot harder for the team without one of their aces.

There is a chance that Los Angeles can get through Weaver’s absence without doing any major harm to their season, but it won’t be easy.
