Los Angeles Angels pitcher Jered Weaver, out since June 20 with a hip injury, will start Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles, according to the Orange County Register. Weaver completed a rehab stint with High-A Inland Empire and will be activated off the disabled list Sunday. Manager Mike Scioscia expressed optimism that Weaver will be fresh for the season's final stretch. "If it means he's good from now until the end of the year, then it was well worth the price you had to pay to miss him," Scioscia said. "I don't necessarily think that the fact that a guy misses three or four weeks is going to translate to him staying fresher, but he's at a level now that he needs to be, and we need to maintain that." Weaver posted a 2.83 ERA in May but slumped to a 6.58 ERA in June.

Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver could be activated from the disabled list as early as Sunday after recovering from a hip injury, according to the Orange County Register. Weaver, who has not pitched since June 20, will be evaluated again Friday before a date for his return is determined. The veteran recently completed a rehab stint with High-A Inland Empire, allowing just two earned runs in 9.1 innings. "He made a lot of progress," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "We're excited about the reports we got on how he pitched last night, and I think that’s a lot closer to where Weav needs to be and to anything we've seen this year for a while, so that’s encouraging. He'll throw his bullpen Friday, see how he comes out of it, and we’ll make a determination of where he is."

Weaver (hip) threw a simulated game Saturday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

Weaver has progressed from bullpen sessions to sim games, suggesting he could be ready to rejoin the rotation immediately after the All-Star break. With Andrew Heaney thriving thus far, the Angels have a tough to decision to make when looking at who Weaver will replace. The team may end up demoting Matt Shoemaker from the rotation, even though he was fantastic as a rookie last year. The Angels might also consider trading one of their starters for a batter, though Weaver and his 10/5 veto rights probably wouldn't be part of that discussion.

Weaver (left hip inflammation) threw on flat ground Tuesday and is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, the Associated Press reports.

He will be evaluated before the All-Star break to determine if he will need a rehab start before rejoining the Angels. Once Weaver is deemed ready to return, he will likely take Matt Shoemaker's rotation spot, as Andrew Heaney has been the team's best pitcher over the past two weeks.

Two days after his first bullpen session since landing on the DL, Weaver got right back at it, this time incorporating all of his pitches.
