Weaver Rounding into Form

The Angels top pick from 2004, Jared 'Dream' Weaver, was a wee-bit rusty after taking nearly a year-off in a contract dispute with the ball club. But since signing a little over a month ago Weaver has been toiling for Class A Rancho Cucamonga with limited success (16 hits in his first 9 1/3 innings and a 9.64 ERA). But last Tuesday Weaver picked-up his first minor league victory after throwing five innings of two-hit ball for the Quakes. Despite his inflated ERA early on, Weaver has demonstrated his legendary control by walking just 3 batters in 14 1/3 innings while striking out 20.

Look for Weaver to make the jump to the bigs sometime in 2006 when the Angels and Dodgers will both sport Izturis' and Weaver's on their rosters.
