Los Angeles Angels right-hander Jered Weaver has been diagnosed with shoulder tendinitis and will miss his next scheduled start which was to be this Friday versus the Detroit Tigers, reports Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com:

At this point, Weaver’s next start is to be determined. Knobler notes that the Angels are expected to announce the timeframe of the 29-year-old’s next appearance this weekend.

Weaver initially injured his shoulder Sunday during his start against the Seattle Mariners when he was hit by a comebacker off the bat of second baseman Dustin Ackley. Weaver remained in the game, but left in the middle of the sixth inning.

The Angels, who are currently looking up at the Texas Rangers and Oakland Athletics in the American League West as well as the Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles in the AL Wild Card, can ill-afford to lose Weaver for a significant stretch. The right-hander is turning in another Cy Young-caliber season, posting an ERA of 2.86 over twenty-five starts.
