Los Angeles Angels right-hander Jered Weaver will again use a peculiar warm-up procedure before facing the Texas Rangers on Monday night at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

Weaver told reporters on Sunday that he will take two bags of intravenous fluids and warm up in the indoor batting cage rather than the bullpen before facing the Rangers. Weaver wants to avoid the heat as long as possible. The first-pitch temperature is expected to be about 95 degrees.

Weaver tried the routine before facing the Rangers one day shy of a year ago and had success in a park that has been hard on him. Weaver gave up two runs in 6 1/3 innings during a 6-2 victory.

That put Weaver’s career record at the Rangers’ home park at 4-8 with a 5.07 ERA for 17 starts. In his first start at the park this season on April 7 Weaver allowed five runs in five innings during a loss. He came out in the sixth inning after fracturing the left elbow avoiding a line drive hit by Mitch Moreland. On that night the game-time temperature was 73 degrees.
