Angels' Weaver activated, set to start vs. A's

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Jered Weaver came off the disabled list
and was scheduled to start for the Los Angeles Angels at Oakland on
Tuesday night.

Greg Jones was designated for assignment to make room on the
roster for Weaver.

Weaver, coming off an impressive rookie season last year, was
placed on the 15-day DL on March 31, retroactive to March 23,
because of biceps tendinitis.

He did not pitch in a game for the Angels this spring, then was
1-0 with a 0.82 ERA in two starts spanning 11 innings for Class-A
Rancho Cucamonga.

The right-handed Weaver, selected by the Angels with the 12th
pick in the 2004 draft, won his first nine major league decisions
and finished last season with an 11-2 record and 2.56 ERA in 19
starts.

Jones, a right-handed reliever, was 0-0 with a 15.00 ERA in two
appearances with Los Angeles this year. He was recalled from
Triple-A Salt Lake last Friday after the Angels' Kelvim Escobar
went on the 15-day DL.
