Angels, Weaver Set For Wednesday Hearing

The Angels and right-hander Jered Weaver are scheduled to have their arbitration hearing on Wednesday, blogs Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times.

The Halos' and Weaver's arbitration hearing would be the second of the 2010-11 offseason after the Pirates and Ross Ohlendorf got that ball rolling on Tuesday, although the sides could still avoid the hearing by settling beforehand. Weaver is seeking $8.80MM, while the Angels are offering $7.37MM, rendering a midpoint of $8.08MM, as shown on our Arbitration Tracker.

Weaver, coming off a fine 2010 in which he posted a 3.01 ERA with a 9.3 K/9 and 2.2 BB/9, is in his second year of arbitration eligibility. A first-round draft pick in 2004, Weaver, 28, is represented by Scott Boras.

  1. Hopefully with the money he’s gonna get he can go get himself a haircut.

  2. I predict he’s gonna bust a Lackey and become a FA. No extension is gonna happen

      Because of Boras or the tightwad owner Moreno?

        Tightwad? Excuse me but I think their new commitment to Vernon Wells says otherwise.

    Of course an extension is not going to happen… It’s freaking $cott Bora$..

    The Angels should just pay the kid, and hopefully he’d want to stay and force boras to get a reasonable deal done..

    But ya, not going to happen.

      Weaver has been steadily improving and moving closer to being an ace, I fail to see how Boras will feel the need to be “reasonable.” Of course I’m guessing you and he have different meanings of the word “reasonable,” his being getting the most possible money for his client.

        I would say Weaver proved he was a #1 last year.

        • start_wearing_purple 4 years ago

          I usually like to wait to see if a pitcher can reproduce results before calling them an ace.

          • Leonard Washington 4 years ago

            I think he has shown enough, he has been effective since he got into the league. He has pitched well in the playoffs and his K’s are getting better every season. Even if he comes down some from last season he is still a #1.

            Huh, a 3.01 ERA, which was under 3 most of the year, league-leading strikeouts and having his number constantly called upon to stop losing streaks, pitch in 1-2 run games, and handle monster-lineups like Red Sox and Rangers don’t make an ace anymore?

          • start_wearing_purple 4 years ago

            I see an ace as someone who can do that multiple years in a row. Not really sure where he got the “handling monster lineups” reputation but he seems to be an average pitcher against them.

        yea he’s an agent. that’s his job. he is good at his job and everyone hates him for it.

        • He’s not a good agent, he’s a GREAT agent. Anybody who can get Oliver Perez $36 million dollars and Kyle Lohse $41 million is unreal. I’m not even making a dent in his resume of people he’s gotten money for who didn’t deserve it.

    jered weaver is exciting to watch pitch. he has grown into a nice young ace for that team. cheap too. i hope he becomes an anchor in that rotation for a long time. with all the things going wrong in that organization, i’m glad he is going right.

    “Tony? B.Cashman here. About that Weaver kid…”

    Just because he goes to arbitration doesn’t mean that he won’t be extended. Maybe after the arbitration he will get extended because it buys out his free agency years and so he gets more money

    I bet they pay for Weaver. The Wells deal was a NIGHTMARE for PR

  8. Chris Masteller 4 years ago

    Pay the man his money.

    (Rounders reference)

    OMG JUST PAY HIM!! no sense in killing his desire to stay w/ the angels by slandering his name in an arb hearing!!

  10. extending Jered Weaver in a 4 year deal I feel makes sense for both sides. I want to say 4 yr $48 million should get it done. For the Angels you keep your homegrown potential ace in the rotation for 2 FA years while your prospects develop. For Jered he gets almost $50m gaurenteed with only 1 really strong Ace caliber season under his belt(I would take it).

    As for Weaver, He becomes a free agent in 2015 when he will be 32. The same age Cliff Lee just signed his gigantic contract and could’ve gotten a 7 yr deal. he chose the 5 yr with an obvious vesting option for a 6th. Same age Jayson Werth, another Scott Boras agent got his 7 yr deal. If Jered pitches like the Ace he is in those 4 years with his home team Angels, I feel he can get over $20 mil per in a 7 yr contract.

    This would make so much sense for both sides, and if it doesn’t get done then there is obviously something I am missing.

  11. I think if anything I should get a reward.

    Anyone who can compare Jered Weaver and Snooki deserves bonus points

  13. CaseyBlakeDeWitt 4 years ago

    I think you should be shunned for bringing snookie into any conversation involving baseball.

  14. Technically this isn’t about baseball, it’s about money. Which Snooki and Jerad Weaver are very similar in, the love of money. If it helps any I can go back and change Snooki to Hazel May?

  15. CaseyBlakeDeWitt 4 years ago

    Technically we are talking about both baseball and money…

  16. Well Snooki has seen her fair share of baseballs…..

  17. CaseyBlakeDeWitt 4 years ago

    ……

    Thanks for that.
