Fantasy Impact of the Padres Signing Jered Weaver

The San Diego Padres made it official this weekend, signing Jered Weaver to a one-year, $3 million contract to help fill out the back end of the team's rotation. 

Weaver, 34, has fallen on hard times recently after earning three All-Star appearances earlier in his career. Playing his entire career in Southern California with the Los Angeles Angels, the veteran is coming off a 2016 campaign that saw him post a 12-12 record with a 5.06 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 31 starts. Those are some horrendous numbers right there. 

Though, there's a train of thought here that suggests Weaver could have success at the pitcher-friendly PETCO Park in San Diego. It grades out as the most pitcher-friendly park in all of the game, which could be a boon for the veteran. 

Weaver figures to slide into the No. 5 spot in the rotation, behind Jhoulys Chacin, Clayton Richard, Trevor Cahill and Christian Friedrich. 

There's not much to look at here from a fantasy perspective. Weaver has been irrelevant in that regard for the past three seasons. What this might due is impact those of you in dyno leagues with larger rosters. His presence will likely cloud the progression of youngsters within the Padres' organization.
