Los Angeles Angels right-hander Jered Weaver is scheduled to return from the disabled list to start Wednesday's series finale against the Dodgers.
Weaver has been out since early April after suffering a fractured elbow in his non-pitching left arm but is expected to be activated from the disabled list and rejoin the Angels' rotation.
The 30-year-old pitcher worked 5 2/3 innings in an extended spring training game on Wednesday, throwing 75 pitches, and apparently showed the Angels that he's ready.
The Angels designated Billy Buckner, who started Saturday's game, for assignment and hope to have right-hander Tommy Hanson back from the restricted list to start Friday against the Houston Astros. Hanson has been out since May 4 after the death of his step-brother.
