Report: Angels' Jered Weaver expected to return from DL as soon as eligible

Three hundred feet is the greatest distance that pitchers usually long-toss, so if Weaver is already there with nearly a week more to rehab, his prognosis certainly looks good.

Weaver was placed on the DL on May 29 after straining his lower back 12 pitches into his start against the New York Yankees. He is 6-1 with a 2.61 ERA this season, including a no-hitter on May 2.
