Los Angeles Angels ace Jered Weaver will head back to L.A. on Wednesday to have his sore throwing shoulder examined by Dr. Lewis Yocum, and will likely miss his upcoming start against the Detroit Tigers according to Angels beat writer Mike DiGiovanna on Twitter.
Head coach Mike Scoscia noted that he is not sure when Weaver will throw again, but as the Angels sit just 3.5 games back in the AL wild card race, any time missed by the Cy Young winner will be troublesome for the club.
Weaver took a line drive off the bat of Dustin Ackley in the shoulder during the fifth inning of Sunday's game up in Seattle. Ervin Santana, C.J. Wilson and Zack Greinke are now expected to start against Detroit this weekend.
