With Jered Weaver Out, Angels Shuffle Rotation Against Tigers

With Jered Weaver out with shoulder tendonitis, the Los Angeles Angels have changed their weekend rotation for their three-game series against the Detroit Tigers. Ervin Santana will start in place of Weaver on Friday, per Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register.

Weaver's next start has yet to be determined, and is expected to be announced this weekend.

Here's a look at the weekend pitching matchup in Anaheim between two postseason hopefuls:

The Halos have won three straight games and eight of their last nine games, and find themselves 2½ games behind the Oakland Athletics and Baltimore Orioles for the second wild card in the American League.

The Angels host the A's for four games next week after the Tigers series, and have 13 of their next 16 games at home, where the Halos are 36-29 this season.
