Reporting from Seattle — Angels ace Jered Weaver has been scratched from his scheduled start Friday in Anaheim to attend his grandfather's funeral in Oregon.

Angels Manager Mike Scioscia declined to name a replacement, but right-hander Tyler Chatwood, who started 23 games for the Angels earlier this year, did not take his expected turn at triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday and has left the club, according to a team source.

"We'll have an announcement [Friday]," said Scioscia, who has few other options other than Chatwood since Joel Pineiro pitched three days ago and right-hander Trevor Bell, another possible fill-in, pitched 5 1/3 innings at Salt Lake on Thursday.
