ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Jered Weaver has been scratched from his Friday start for the Los Angeles Angels with tightness in his right forearm.

The Angels announced Thursday that Matt Shoemaker will make his major league debut in Weaver's spot when the Angels open their final homestand against the Seattle Mariners.

Weaver (10-8) felt tightness in his arm two starts ago. He is expected to miss only one turn in the rotation, returning next week for the Angels' home finale.

Weaver missed nearly two months after breaking a bone in his non-throwing arm in early April. He has never finished with fewer than 11 wins in his eight-season career.

The 26-year-old Shoemaker was 11-13 at Triple-A Salt Lake this season. He gets the start over struggling veterans Tommy Hanson and Joe Blanton.
