LA Angels’ Weaver named American League Player of the Week

In recognition of his American League Player of the Week Award, Jered Weaver will be awarded a watch courtesy of Game Time, the leader in licensed sports watches, available at MLB.com.

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.

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.
