LA Angels’ Weaver named American League Player of the Week


Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim pitcher Jered Weaver, who tossed the first no-hitter of his career last Wednesday and the second in the Majors this season, has been named American League Player of the Week in recognition of his accomplishment for the period ending May 6th.

This is Weaver’s first career Player of the Week honor.

Weaver, Northridge, California native and a two-time A.L. All-Star, needed 121 pitches to shut down the Minnesota Twins, 9-0, in the ninth individual no-hitter in Angels history and the 10th overall. It was the first no-no for the Angels since Ervin Santana blanked the Cleveland Indians on July 27, 2011 at Progressive Field, and it was the first gem by an Angels starter at home since Mark Langston and Mike Witt combined to no-hit the Seattle Mariners on April 11, 1990.

Against Minnesota, the 6’7” right-hander threw 16 first-pitch strikes en route to a season-high nine strikeouts while issuing his lone walk to Josh Willingham in the seventh inning. The Twins’ only other baserunner came in the second when Chris Parmelee reached first base safely on a passed ball following a strikeout. The victory helped the Long Beach State product improve to 4-0 with a 1.61 ERA on the season.

The 29-year-old Weaver is a 2-time All-Star with a career record of 86-47, an ERA of 3.24, 1,022 strikeouts, 10 complete games, 5 shutouts and was the MLB strikeout leader in 2010.

Less than two weeks ago on April 21, Phil Humber of the Chicago White Sox threw the first no-hitter of the 2012 baseball season against Seattle.

On Wednesday night, LA Angels ace pitcher Jared Weaver pitched the second no-hitter, overmatching the slumping Minnesota Twins, 9-0.

The Twins, who were swept by the Angels in a three-game series, was also shutout on Tuesday night by Jerome Williams in a 3-hitter as he retired 18 of the last 19 batters faced.

The flame-throwing Weaver struck out nine and walked one. He threw 121 pitches and kept the crowd of 27,288 in Anaheim on the edges of their seats once they saw the Twins could not muster anything close to a hit.

A product of nearby Long Beach State University, Weaver improves to 4-0.

The last out of the game was Alexi Casilla who flied out to right fielder Torii Hunter.

The 29-year-old pitched the second Angels no-hitter in less than a year, as teammate Ervin Santana hurled one last July 27 at Cleveland, and the 10th in the Angels history and the 250th in MLB history. Nolan Ryan threw four no-hitters for the Angels.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim starting pitcher Jared Weaver has been awarded the American League Pitcher of the Month for April.

The 6’7, 215 pounder in six starts, which also includes his start on March 31st, compiled a perfect 6-0 record with a 0.99 ERA, two complete games, one shutout, 49 strikeouts and 10 walks in 45.2 innings of pitching.

The 28-year-old led the Majors in wins, finished tops in the A.L. in strikeouts and ERA, and ranked second in the league in innings pitched and opponent batting average (.163). Weaver threw at least 6.1 innings in each of his six starts and allowed one run or less in five of those six starts.

On March 31st, the Northridge, California native made his third career Opening Day start, permitting just two hits over 6.1 innings to help the Angels defeat the Kansas City Royals, 4-2, at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. The start was Weaver’s second straight Opening Day victory.

In his home season debut on April 10th, the 2010 Major League baseball strikeout leader struck out a career-high 15 batters in 7.2 innings to lead the Angels over the Toronto Blue Jays, 3-1, at Angel Stadium in Anaheim. That marked just the 14th time in Major League history that a pitcher accumulated 15-or-more strikeouts in fewer than 8.0 innings pitched. Furthermore, Weaver became the first Angels right-hander to compile 15 strikeouts since Mike Witt recorded 16 strikeouts on July 23, 1984.

Weaver was the 12th overall selection in the first round of the 2004 First-Year Player Draft.

This is Jared’s first career Pitcher of the Month Award.

The American League Player of the Month will receive a specially designed trophy, suitably engraved, for Jared Weaver’s accomplishment.
