Angels ace Weaver out a month-plus

ANAHEIM, Calif. — The Angels on Tuesday placed ace RHP Jered Weaver on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured left elbow.

Weaver, who was diagnosed with a non-displaced radial head fracture, is expected to miss at least four weeks.

Weaver left Sunday's loss to the Rangers early after jamming the arm while dodging a line drive.

The Angels called up former Rays RHP Dane De La Rosa from Triple-A Salt Lake.

JETER RUNS: Yankees SS Derek Jeter ran on a field for the first time in several weeks, his biggest steps yet in his comeback from injury. Manager Joe Girardi said Jeter did sprints, took grounders and hit indoors at the team's training complex in Tampa.

BREWERS: Back problems sent manager Ron Roenicke to a hospital emergency room in Chicago, but he returned in time for the game.

CARDINALS: Closer Jason Motte faces reconstructive right elbow surgery if his strain does not improve in the next three weeks or so.

INDIANS: C Lou Marson went on the 15-day disabled list with a neck strain sustained in a collision Saturday with the Rays' Desmond Jennings.

TIGERS: DH Victor Martinez needed eight stitches after cutting his right thumb on the bat rack. He's day to day.

WHITE SOX: Pitching coach Don Cooper was hospitalized with a stomach illness and missed the game.
