Los Angeles Angels right-hander Jered Weaver will return to the mound Thursday in the club’s series finale against the Oakland Athletics, reports Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register:

Weaver last appeared for the Angels on September 2. The 29-year-old was hit in the right shoulder with a comebacker during that game, and he left the contest an inning later. He was later diagnosed with shoulder tendinitis.

Weaver is once again turning in a campaign that figures to garner Cy Young Award consideration. Over twenty-five starts for the Angels, he’s gone 16-4 while maintaining an ERA of 2.86 with 6.8 SO/9 and 2.1 BB/9.

Weaver’s return to the mound will offer a boost for Los Angeles as they attempt to keep pace in the race for the final American League Wild Card spot.
