Wow. When Jered Weaver left with a bum non-pitching elbow on Sunday night it didn’t seem serious. A tweak. A strain. Nothing too crazy. Ken Rosenthal is hearing, however, that it is:

The Angels just confirmed:

Today, the club placed RHP Jered Weaver on the 15-day D.L. with a a left non displaced radial head fracture (elbow)

What a huge loss for Anaheim. Yesterday their fans (and most of us) didn’t even know that there was such a thing as a “left non displaced radial head fracture.” Now it may derail the early part of their season.
