RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Weaver's ERA rose for the third consecutive year in 2014, in what seems to have been triggered by a career-high home-run rate (1.1 HR/9) and his highest walk rate since 2009 (7.3% BB%). Weaver responded to rumblings about the lack of velocity on his fastball last offseason by saying he would be fine as long as he hit his spots, but the 32-year-old's velocity held steady in 2014, and he increased his strikeout rate. While home runs allowed in a given year can sometimes be attributed to simple fluctuation, this may not strictly be true in Weaver's case, as his home run rate has now risen three years in a row. The Angels will rely on Weaver to throw another 200-inning season in 2015, but it seems as though he is losing value with each passing year. To stabilize his value, Weaver needs to cut his walk rate from the elevated 2.7 BB/9 mark he posted last season.

2014

The 2013 season started off on a sour note for Weaver, as a broken left (non-pitching) elbow in early April left him sidelined for seven weeks. Upon his return, however, he picked up where he left off in 2012, as he once again led the Angels' staff with a 3.27 ERA. Weaver may not strikeout batters the way he once did, but he was able to once again limit free passes (2.2 BB/9) and long balls (1.0 HR/9) last season, while stranding baserunners at a 78.5 percent clip. While Weaver's fastball velocity dipped once again in 2013, averaging just 86.5 mph, the veteran righty is an extreme flyball pitcher in one of the biggest ballparks in the game. That, combined with being a control artist, should help him keep his ERA down, even as his other skills continue to erode.

2013

Weaver finished third in the 2012 AL Cy Young voting after going 20-5 with a 2.81 ERA, league-leading 1.02 WHIP, and 142:45 K:BB ratio over 30 starts and 188.2 innings. The 142 strikeouts were a disappointment, as was his 6.8 K/9, but Weaver's other numbers left fantasy owners with nothing to complain about and he finished in the top-five of the AL Cy Young voting for the third year in a row. Such a low ERA and WHIP would normally be unsustainable for a pitcher with a pedestrian strikeout rate, but Weaver is a flyball specialist who benefits from the spacious Angel Stadium and an outfield that will include defensive studs Mike Trout and Peter Bourjos. While the Angels would surely like to see Weaver improve his velocity and strikeout numbers after consecutive years of decline, he should be fine so long as he can put a halt to the downward trend.

2012

Weaver established himself as an ace several seasons ago, but he was one of the best pitchers in the game in 2011. His ERA, WHIP, and BAA all fell for the third straight season, and he finished the campaign with a 18-8 record, a 2.41 ERA, and a 198:56 K:BB ratio in 235.2 innings. It will be tough for Weaver to lower his numbers any further, but he will have as good a chance as anyone of winning 20 games this season with the improved run support he'll receive with Albert Pujols joining the lineup.

2011

Weaver had been a pretty good pitcher ever since entering the league in 2006, but he finally put it all together last season. Weaver posted a sparkling 3.01 ERA over a career-high 224.1 innings and led all of MLB with 233 strikeouts. Weaver does not walk many batters, and he figures to improve upon his 13 wins if the Angels can be a bit more consistent on offense. Weaver has only been getting better the last couple seasons and is entering his prime, so expect him to have another fine season in 2011. Just don't expect to get him with the same middle-round pick it took to get him last year.

2010

Five years removed from the hype that surrounded his selection, Weaver finally threw 200 innings in an MLB season. He's been more or less the same pitcher from the moment he joined the Angels, an above-average starter.

2009

Weaver finished the 2008 season 11-10 in 30 starts for the Angels. He posted a 4.33 ERA and also struck out 152 batters. Weaverís numbers seem very average, but his ability to take the mound every fifth day is one of his greatest assets. Weaver doesnít have the dominant stuff to make a dramatic improvement, but he is not likely to decline and should continue to be an important member of the Angelsí rotation next season.

2008

For the second straight season, Weaver proved that he has the ability to be a successful pitcher in the major leagues. Weaver doesnít blow batters away, but he has figured out how to get major league hitters out and will have a spot in the Angelsí starting rotation next season. Weaverís ceiling isnít as high as some of the other young pitchers, so his numbers arenít likely to be significantly better next season.

2007

The main thing to remember is that Weaver is likely as good, right now, as he's ever going to be. There's not much room for him to grow, being as polished as he is. That makes him a top-20 starter in an AL league, of course. His ERA is likely to rise with his home-run rate, which was very low for a pitcher with a 0.61 GB/FB ratio.

2006

Weaver has a shot at earning a rotation spot going into camp. The 12th overall pick in the 2004 draft is advancing very quickly after he didn't sign until early in 2005 and was solid in his Arizona Fall League stint. The Angels would prefer to start him off in the minors to fine tune his mechanics, but he's likely to arrive for good before July is over.

2005

Weaver is probably the most talented pitcher to come out of college since Mark Prior. He's close to major league-ready but is still slightly shaky mechanicallyómore similar in this respect to his brother Jeff than to Prior. He has yet to sign with the Angels.

2004

The brother of Dodgersí Jeff Weaver is highly competitive, and the most polished pitcher to come out of College since Mark Prior. Heís close to major-league ready but doesn't have the best stuff and is shaky mechanically, similar to his brother more than Prior. Probably the best choice in the 2004 draft but agent Scott Boras has insisted on a signing bonus approaching $10 million which will push his draft position down.
