Angels activate Hunter from restricted list; Weaver to DL

The Angels reinstated right fielder Torii Hunter from the restricted list and placed starting pitcher Jered Weaver on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday.

Hunter has been away from the team since May 14th due to the arrest of his son in Texas. The 17-year-old Darius McClinton-Hunter is facing sexual-assault charges.

Hunter, who has missed 15 games, is batting .256 with five home runs and 15 RBI in 33 games this season.

Weaver, who is on the DL due to a lower back strain with spasms, has compiled a 6-1 record with a 2.61 ERA in 11 starts. He was forced to leave Monday's game against the New York Yankees in the first inning with a lower back injury.

The Angels also optioned infielder Andrew Romine to Salt Lake and called up pitcher Garrett Richards from the Triple-A club.
