Weaver pitched 5.2 innings, allowing two runs (one earned), five hits and three walks while striking out four Blue Jays in Thursday's win.

EDGE Analysis

Entering the game, Weaver was 0-3 with a 7.29 ERA through four starts this month, but he somehow mustered a strong performance to down the potent Blue Jays lineup. The veteran's five hits allowed were the fewest he's given up since June 19, and the third fewest Weaver's allowed in any of his 25 starts this season. Despite the impressive performance, the 33-year-old continues to be hit-or-miss when it comes to his fantasy production, making him a poor option in most formats.

Weaver (8-10) gave up five runs on 10 hits and two walks over 5,1 innings in Sunday's loss to the Indians. He did not strike out a batter.

EDGE Analysis

It's been almost painful to watch Weaver pitch this season. He's allowed at least four runs in four of his last five starts and his ERA hasn't been below 5.00 since early May, and that despite throwing a shutout against the A's in June. His 4.51 K/9 is a career low, while his 1.75 HR/9 is a career high. If the Angels' rotation were even a little bit healthier it's likely that the 33-year-old would have followed or even preceded Tim Lincecum out the door, but they really don't have any better options right now. Weaver will next trudge doggedly out to the mound at home Friday against the Yankees.

Weaver (8-9) allowed five runs (four earned) on eight hits and two walks over five innings in a loss Tuesday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

The Cubs crushed Weaver's mistakes, tagging him for two doubles and two home runs. Weaver has now allowed a ridiculous 25 home runs in just 22 starts this year. Given the resulting 1.8 HR/9 he is currently sporting, Weaver is lucky to have an ERA as low as 5.19.

Weaver (8-8) pitched six innings, allowing four runs (three earned) on nine hits and struck out one in Wednesday's no-decision against Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

After a few good outings last month, Weaver once again appears to be a shell of the pitcher most prefer to remember him as. The veteran has faced 531 hitters in 2016 and 81 percent of them have been able to put the ball in play against Weaver (that's a problem). The right-hander's 4.8 K/9 is massively below his career number of 7.1 strikeouts per nine. Weaver's fastball is clocked slower than some pitcher's changeups, and he simply can't get hitters out on his own anymore. He's admitted to playing through pain this season, too. There are just way too many red flags to count on Weaver under most circumstances.

Weaver allowed a single run on six hits and two walks over 5.2 innings Thursday, striking out two Red Sox in a no-decision.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran actually left in line for a loss, but the Angels' ninth-inning rally bailed him out. Weaver's now allowed just one run in three of his last four starts -- but he's also allowed four or more runs in five of his last nine outings. Whether he's hot or cold kind of depends on where you're coming from, but either way, Weaver's a weak fantasy roll as one of the league's most hittable pitchers.

Weaver (8-8) allowed six runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out one over four innings to take the loss Saturday at the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

Weaver allowed a three-run homer in the second inning before allowing three more runs to score between the third and fourth innings, leading to his eighth loss of the season. After starting out July with a pair of excellent outings, he's now allowed 12 runs in his last eight innings over two starts to raise his ERA to 5.32. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Red Sox.

Weaver (8-7) allowed one run on six hits and one walk while striking out one over seven innings to earn the win Sunday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The only run Weaver allowed came in the third inning, and the Angels gave him eight runs of support to easily get him his eighth victory of 2016. He's now allowed just one run in each of his two July outings to lower his ERA to 5.02 on the year. He'll make his next start Saturday at the Astros.

Weaver (7-7) allowed one run on four hits and one walk while striking out five over six innings to earn the win Wednesday at the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Weaver was given a 7-0 lead before giving up a solo homer to Logan Forsythe, and he easily collected his seventh win of the year. This was only the second time he's fired a quality start over his last six outings, and his ERA is now at 5.27. His next start will be after the All-Star break.

Weaver was roughed up by the Astros on Wednesday, allowing six runs on seven hits in just 5.1 innings.

EDGE Analysis

He walked four while striking out three in the contest. Weaver simply hasn't been able to fool hitters in 2016, as his HR/9 rate stands at a bloated 1.9, and he has allowed at least four runs in four of six starts this month. Weaver pitched a three-hit shutout as recently as 10 days ago, but it should be abundantly clear by his overall body of work that the outing was the exception rather than the rule. He will take a 5.51 ERA into his start against the Rays next week.

Weaver (6-7) pitched 5.1 innings, allowing six runs, seven hits and four walks while striking out three in Wednesday's loss to the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

The Astros have owned him this season, and avoiding Houston in the future might be the best idea for Weaver's fantasy owners. In two starts against Houston, the 33-year-old is 0-2 with a 7.94 ERA and an atrocious 6:7 K:BB over 11.1 innings. Overall, he has a 5.51 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 54 strikeouts through 16 starts (94.2 innings). Battling through his 11th MLB season, Weaver is obviously in the final stages of his career and requires careful planning to successfully deploy him in fantasy lineups.
