The Angels will activate Jered Weaver from the 15-day disabled list to start on Sunday against the Orioles, Pedro Moura of the Orange County Register reports. Weaver has been out since his June 20 start against the Athletics due to a left hip injury.

Weaver has had an uncharacteristically poor 2015 campaign, holding a 4.75 ERA with a 49/16 K/BB ratio in 96 2/3 innings. His strikeout rate — 12.2 percent — is by far a career low, nearly eight percent below his career average. His fastball velocity has gone from 86 MPH in the last two seasons to 84 MPH this year.
