Wow either his arm is shot or he's done all together. Aside from the injury he just had in his non throwing arm, he was already throwing no harder than 87 MPH on the season according to fangraphs. He was throwing 83 MPH fastballs before his injury. Wow

He just left the game like 10 minutes ago he was gripping his left elbow pretty bad. But really was saying how his FB has diminished a TON. 3 MPH dip from last to this year?

It's a strain in his non-pitching elbow. Appeared to hurt it when trying to avoid a line drive.

But yeah, that aside, Weaver is a little worrisome; strikeouts went south in 2012, didn't get as many infield pop-ups as usual, velocity continues to dip. His stuff tonight was ugly; Ben Badler commented saying he looked like a AAA journeyman.

He broke his left elbow, out 4-6 weeks.
