Los Angeles Angels pitcher Jered Weaver will start Game 1 of the American League Division Series on Oct. 2.
"The way he threw the ball last time, you could see his stuff has been coming, and I think he'll maintain it," Scioscia said of Weaver, according to MLB.com. "But I don't think it's ever a bad thing getting an extra day."
The Angels will have home-field advantage in the ALDS, where they are currently scheduled to face the winner of the AL Wild Card game.
Weaver is 17-8 with a 3.50 ERA in 200 1/3 innings this season for Los Angeles, who have a 2 1/2-game lead over the Baltimore Orioles for the best record in the AL.
