The Los Angeles Angels' 20-game winner possesses a sidearm delivery that would make him a dominant wicket taker. His motion is similar to the round-arm bowling school to which Sri Lankan great Lasith Malinga adheres. They both look like they are slinging the ball. Instead of a two-seamer, Weaver would bowl a yorker or full toss with a style and motion unorthodox in both sports. -- Amar Shah
