2011 – Jered Weaver – 18-8, 2.41 ERA 1.015 WHIP 198 K’s AL All-Star & Runner-Up for Cy Young Award.
The Angels have not had too many pitchers that were more fiercely competitive that Long Beach State alum Jered Weaver. For a six-year period from 2009-2014 Weaver was one of the best pitchers in the American League making the AL All-Star team three times from 2010-2012.
In 2011 Weaver won 18 games which was the second-best total in his career. He also recorded his lowest ERA and WHIP of his career with the .241 ERA and 1.015 WHIP. Weaver was recognized as one of the best pitchers in MLB by finishing second in the CY Young Award race. If he had gotten a little more run support and some help from the Angels bullpen Weaver would have been a 20-game winner.
In 2012 Weaver would reach 20 wins and also throw a No-Hitter, but 2011 was his most dominant season of his career.
