Weaver throws off mound for first time

Jered Weaver, taking it more slowly this spring than last year when he came out of the chute blazing, threw off a mound for the first time and was feeling good afterward.

“I threw 25 fastballs,” he said, “and everything felt good.”

Weaver has made 200 innings his goal this season after falling short by 23 1/3 innings last year. He has had periodic shoulder issues, so the slower pace this spring was precautionary more than anything.

“I want to be ready when it counts,” he said. “I’m not interested in being the Cactus League pitcher of the year.”
