ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Angels ace Jered Weaver will miss his scheduled start Friday while recovering from tendinitis.

The Angels confirmed Thursday that Weaver will miss his turn in the opener of a key home series against Detroit. Both teams are in the thick of the AL wild card race.

Los Angeles said the club will announce Weaver’s next start this weekend, likely indicating he won’t be out long. Ervin Santana will start Friday for the Angels, who were off Thursday.

Weaver (16-4) was struck by a liner from Seattle’s Dustin Ackley during a 2-1 loss to the Mariners last Sunday. An MRI on Weaver’s right shoulder revealed tendinitis apparently unrelated to the line drive.

The All-Star has lost three of his last five starts after a 15-1 start to the season.
