Jered Weaver a Late Scratch - Nothing Serious

UPDATE: Chatwood went 4 innings allowing 9 hits, 5 earned runs, 2 walks and 3 strike outs.  All of the damage came in the 1st inning where Chatwood allowed 7 hits and 5 runs.

Jered Weaver will miss his start today (Sunday) against the Tampa Bay Rays due to a stomach virus.  The Angels are hopeful he can take the hill tomorrow against the Red Sox.  Weaver is 6-0 with a 0.99 ERA so far this year, winning all of his starts.

21 year old Tyler Chatwood will make the start instead.  In 4 career starts, Chatwood is 2-1 with a 3.86 ERA.  In 23 innings he has 15 walks and 10 strikeouts, something he has to improve on to be an effective pitcher in the bigs.

Was Super Bowl LIII the Last Game of Rob Gronkowski's Career?
