Description: Angels right-hander Jered Weaver allowed five hits and one run and struck out seven over six innings Wednesday against the Dodgers in his first start back from the DL.
Insight: Weaver missed almost two months with a fractured non-throwing elbow. He dealt with diminished fastball velocity before his injury and didn't throw much harder last night. That could be an issue this season.
