Los Angeles Angels pitcher Jered Weaver left after just three innings against the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday afternoon due to tightness in his lower back.
He allowed three runs on five hits, including a two-run shot to Albert Pujols in the third. He was checked out by a trainer before getting Juan Encarnacion to ground out and end the inning.
After missing all of spring training and starting the season in the 15-day DL with biceps tendonitis, Weaver is hoping for positive news regarding his back. He is day-to-day.
