Weeks has signed a minor league deal with the Cubs, Jeff Sanders of the Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The versatile Weeks hit free agency at the end of the season after refusing an outright assignment to the Padres' Triple-A affiliate. After roughly two months, Weeks has found a new club as he inked a minor league deal with the Cubs this week. Weeks is a career .254/.316/.352 hitter with 41 stolen bases over parts of six major league seasons. He provides some organizational depth at a few different spots, but Chicago's roster is currently too deep to where Weeks has a clear path to making the major league roster.

Weeks became a free agent after refusing an outright assignment to Triple-A El Paso, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

He played in 17 games for the Padres in 2016, spending a significant portion of the season on the DL with a hamstring injury. Weeks posted a .306/.405/.500 line in 10 games at Triple-A, and he'll likely end up in a competition for a roster spot elsewhere with a minor league deal this winter.

Weeks (hamstring) began a rehab assignment with the Padres' Arizona League affiliate Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Weeks has been out since May with a right hamstring strain, but finally seems to be on the road to recovery. There is no clear timetable at this point, but a return to the majors this season isn't out of the question.

Weeks was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Weeks was transferred in a corresponding move to the team claiming relief pitcher Jake Smith off waivers from the Giants on Wednesday. The second baseman has been out since early May with a hamstring injury, and has suffered a couple setbacks delaying his return to the club. Weeks could be rejoining the team after the All-Star Break, but will need to get through some rehab games first.

Weeks (hamstring) could potentially need surgery done, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Weeks has not been progressing as expected, and is considering getting a cortisone shot. Surgery could become an option if he continues to not see any improvement. In the meantime, Jose Pirela should continue seeing the majority of playing time at second base.

Weeks' (hamstring) second MRI revealed a hamstring strain, A.J. Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Weeks was forced to get another MRI after the results of the first were inconclusive, but this one did not bring the news he was hoping to hear. The second baseman will be re-evaluated in two-to-three weeks to see how his hamstring has healed, but he'll stay on the shelf until that time comes. In the meantime, Jose Pirela will probably see most of the playing time at second base.

Weeks (hamstring) will undergo another MRI on Tuesday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

His initial MRI was inconclusive, so the Padres will send Weeks for another exam. A hamstring injury forced Weeks to the DL on Sunday, with Jose Pirela recalled in a corresponding move. Pirela is starting at second base Tuesday against lefty Jon Lester, but Adam Rosales seems like the favorite for playing time at the keystone until either Weeks or Cory Spangenberg (quad) returns.

Weeks (hamstring) will be placed on the 15-day DL, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Weeks suffered a strained hamstring in Saturday's matchup against the Mets, and although the move has yet to be made official by the team, it is as close to a certainty as it can get at this point. In his place, Jose Pirela is expected to be recalled from Triple-A El Paso to provide infield depth. With Weeks on the shelf, look for Adam Rosales to get an extended look at second base.

Padres' manager Andy Green indicated that Weeks is likely headed for the DL after sustaining a right hamstring strain in Saturday's game against the Mets, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

With a 15-day DL stint likely on tap, Adam Rosales will see unexpected time at second base while Weeks joins fellow infielders Alexi Amarista (hamstring), Yangervis Solarte (hamstring), and Cory Spangenberg (quad) in rehab.

Weeks exited Saturday's game against the Mets with a right hamstring strain.

EDGE Analysis

The severity of Week's strain remains unclear, and even so, it wouldn't be surprising if he was left out of Sunday's lineup for precautionary reasons if nothing else. If that happens, Adam Rosales will likely take over at second with the Padres dealing with numerous injuries to their infielders.
