Jered Weaver out after 12 pitches

It's been a terrible holiday weekend for elite pitchers in MLB. Philadelphia Phillies ace Roy Halladay went down early in an outing against St. Louis and now you can add the Los Angeles Angels' Jered Weaver to the list.

Weaver left tonight's outing against the New York Yankees after 12 pitches. The Angels say Weaver suffered a lower back injury.

Weaver didn't record an out and appeared to hurt himself on his second pitch to the Yankees' Robinson Cano. On a 1-1 pitch, Weaver landed gingerly. He tried to throw one warm-up pitch after the injury and immediately headed to the dugout.

This happened right as it looked like the Angels were starting to put it together.
