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.
