Scheduled Start: July 13th at Seattle Mariners
It's been a slow start to 2013 for Weaver, who battled injuries through the first part of the season.
Finally healthy, it seemed like things would click in June. But instead the right-hander struggled, posting an 0-3 record and a 4.40 ERA across his five starts in the month.
Lately things have seemed much better for Weaver. He's been masterful his last two starts, going 2-0 across 13.2 innings pitched.
Not only has Weaver been able to limit his free passes—something he had issues with in June—but his pitches appear crisper and truer to form.
Weaver will draw just one start this week against the Seattle Mariners, a team he's dominated in his career (12-7, 3.21 ERA).
While he still needs a couple more consistent starts to prove he's returned to form, Weaver is well worth the risk this week.
Verdict: Start 'em.
