Manager Mike Scioscia confirmed the worst-kept secret in the Angels' clubhouse Saturday when he said right-hander Jered Weaver would start the series finale in Baltimore on just three days' rest.

Scioscia wants Weaver (17-7, 2.40 ERA) to pitch three of the Angels' final 11 games and to do that he would have to make at least one start on short rest.

"We put a lot of time into making evaluations and looking at options," Scioscia said. "It's a calculated risk with anything you do. Weav doesn't see it as any issue. Nor [pitching coach] Mike Butcher.
