Jered Weaver slipped after throwing the pitch and then saw the liner coming right back toward his head.

The 20-game winner for the Angels managed to avoid getting hit, but he still got hurt.

Weaver sustained a strained elbow in his left (non-throwing) arm in the Angels' 7-3 loss Sunday night against the Texas Rangers, a game in which he quickly gave up the two-run lead his team got against Yu Darvish.

"Pretty painful. It feels a little swollen in there," Weaver said after the game. "I can't move it around too good right now. It's strange. Kind of like jamming your thumb."

Weaver said he "didn't feel anything pop or crack," but said he wasn't sure if he'd make his next scheduled start.

The Angels dropped two of three games against their AL West rivals in the first series Josh Hamilton played his former team. The five-time All-Star was booed constantly throughout the weekend.

Hamilton, who signed a $125 million, five-year deal with the Angels last winter, had three hits in the series finale. He finished 3 for 13 in the series, and is batting only .160 (4 for 25) on the season.

While there were some social media reports that Hamilton made an obscene gesture to fans in right field, the 2010 AL MVP who played in the Rangers' only two World Series appearances said that never happened.
