Weber allowed two hits while striking out one over two scoreless innings in Tuesday's spring game against the Orioles.
Weber, who is a candidate for Boston's fifth-starter job, is a throwback in the current game in that high-end velocity is not a part of his repertoire. His fastball tops out in the high 80s, and he must get by on guile more than overpowering batters. "Weber, you know what you're going to get right away," manager Ron Roenicke told Ian Browne of MLB.com. "If he is commanding the ball, he throws a lot of strikes. They make quick outs, he's fun to watch. I know he gets in trouble when his command isn't on. But he knows how to pitch. He's got a great mix." Weber is among a list of largely uninspiring options that Roenicke is considering for the rotation. Feb 26 8:18 am (EST)
- Red Sox interim manager Ron Roenicke was asked twice last week about his plans for the fifth starter spot, and he mentioned Weber in both of his answers, Stevie Hewitt of the Boston Herald reports. "He's a guy I like because he's right at you," Roenicke said. "He throws strikes. When his command's good, he gets some easy outs and it's fun to watch him. So we'll figure it out. But I think there's a few guys. It's not just one or two guys."
- Weber was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket ahead of Sunday's 4-3 win over the Angels. He was the pitcher of record in the contest, tossing two scoreless innings in relief to improve his record to 2-2.
- Weber (1-2) was hit with the loss after surrendering a run on a hit and a walk over one inning Sunday against the Angels. He was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket following the game, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports. All Ryan Weber (R) News
