Jered Weaver diagnosed with biceps tendinitis

An MRI exam on Jered Weaver’s sore shoulder revealed biceps tendinitis, which actually qualifies as pretty good news for the Angels ace.

Weaver was hit in the shoulder by a line drive Sunday and had already been scratched from his scheduled start tomorrow, so returning from a visit to Dr. Lewis Yocum without the diagnosis of a major injury is definitely a positive thing.

However, according to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times the Angels haven’t decided when Weaver will make his next start and presumably they’ll want him to throw a bullpen session or two before making that call.

So for now his status is in limbo, but at least Angels fans can stop holding their breath.
