ANAHEIM -- While Angels ace Jered Weaver is still weeks away from taking back his spot in the starting rotation, the right-hander was expected to take another step in his recovery from a broken left elbow on Wednesday.

"He's going to play catch today," manager Mike Scioscia said. "I don't think it's going to be anything real exciting."

While playing catch certainly isn't "exciting," it is the most baseball-related activity Weaver has done since he was placed on the disabled list.

Weaver broke his elbow avoiding a comebacker hit by Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland in Texas on April 7. He has made two starts this season and is 0-1 with a 4.91 ERA.
