Greg Jones was designated for assignment to make room on the roster for Weaver.
Weaver, coming off an impressive rookie season last year, was placed on the 15-day DL on March 31, retroactive to March 23, because of biceps tendinitis.
He did not pitch in a game for the Angels this spring, then was 1-0 with a 0.82 ERA in two starts spanning 11 innings for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga.
The right-handed Weaver, selected by the Angels with the 12th pick in the 2004 draft, won his first nine major league decisions and finished last season with an 11-2 record and 2.56 ERA in 19 starts.
Jones, a right-handed reliever, was 0-0 with a 15.00 ERA in two appearances with Los Angeles this year. He was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake last Friday after the Angels' Kelvim Escobar went on the 15-day DL.
