Jered Weaver reported to the Angels' clubhouse Saturday without any pain from his intense simulated game Friday.

If he gets through a scheduled bullpen session Sunday in similar comfort, the Angels ace could be back in the rotation this week.

Weaver (6-1, 2.61 earned-run average) has been on the disabled list since suffering a lower back strain May 28 while pitching against the New York Yankees at Angel Stadium.

Angels Manager Mike Scioscia said Weaver hasn't missed enough time to automatically require a rehabilitation start in the minor leagues.
