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.

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.

The Cleveland Indians have found a pitcher who could fill the void in their starting staff to replace Fausto Carmona, who is on baseball’s restricted list as he faces false identity charges in the Dominican Republic.

The Tribe has signed free agent pitcher Jon Garland to a minor league contract.

The 32-year-old Garland went 1-5 with a 4.33 ERA in with 9 starts for the Dodgers last season.

He won 14 games for the Padres in 2010.

The right-hander has won at least 12 games seven times and had two 18-win seasons as the ace of the Chicago White Sox.

Garland has also pitched for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Arizona. He has pitched twice for the Dodgers.

His career totals includes a 132-119 won-loss record, 4.32 ERA with 1,124 strikeouts.

Garland, who had shoulder surgery last July, will be in Goodyear, Arizona next week to take a physical. If he passes all the tests, he’ll officially sign the Indians’ contract and will have a chance to make the team’s starting rotation.
