Rickie Weeks went 3-for-4 with two RBI and three runs scored against the Cubs on Friday.

Weeks had just two hits in 17 at-bats over his last nine games. While it looked like he could push Scooter Gennett for playing time earlier this month, he's still only starting against southpaws. That severely limits his upside in fantasy leagues.

Rickie Weeks went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

Weeks took Travis Wood deep in the fifth inning to bring the Brewers back in the game with a 4-2 deficit. In limited playing time, Weeks has two homers and a .351/.403/.509. He has started five games in the last eight games and should earn more time based on his performance.

Rickie Weeks went 3-for-4 with a homer and a double Thursday in the Brewers' 4-3 defeat of the Pirates.

Khris Davis had the game-winning hit in the bottom of the ninth. Weeks is now 13-for-20 this month, raising his average from .188 all of the way up to .365. He should be earning himself more playing time in the process, but we'll see if that materializes.

Rickie Weeks went 3-for-5 with two RBI in a win over the Yankees on Sunday.

Weeks had an RBI single in the third inning and added an RBI groundout in the sixth. He's shown a pulse at the plate in recent days, going 5-for-9 with all three of his RBI in the past two days. With Scooter Gennett also hitting well it may be a short-lived appearance for Weeks, who has said he won't move to left field in order to get more playing time.

Rickie Weeks was asked by Brewers management if he wanted to try left field and declined.

Weeks, who's making $11 million this year, is apparently content being the backup to Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett. He has made just six starts this year.

Rickie Weeks will start at second base Tuesday against the Braves.

Scooter Gennett got the start at second base in the season opener on Monday, but Weeks will get the call Tuesday with left-hander Alex Wood on the hill for Atlanta. It looks like Brewers manager Ron Roenicke will use a platoon early on, but Weeks has more upside and will likely get his job back eventually.

Rickie Weeks felt a pop in his left hamstring while running the bases Wednesday but clarified after the game that it was just scar tissue breaking free.

"It's a great thing, for sure," Weeks said. "Now I'm good. . Now that I've had that release, I can keep strengthening it more and more, and just keep working through it." Weeks had season-ending surgery on the same hamstring last August, and he left Wednesday's game shortly after feeling the pop. The incident scared him at first, but there won't be any residual effects from the scar tissue releasing. The 31-year-old is batting .368 this spring and is looking to regain the starting second base job from Scooter Gennett.

Rickie Weeks has altered his stance at the plate, holding his hands "a tad bit higher."

The move appears to be working so far, as Weeks is 4-for-9 with a home run and four walks in his first four Cactus League games. He's also drawn praise from Brewers manager Ron Roenicke. "Geez, he's killing the baseball," Roenicke said. "I hope he continues it. When he's swinging the bat like this, he is really fun to watch." Scooter Gennett entered spring training as the favorite to start at second base, but Weeks could get his job back with a strong spring. It's definitely one position battle to watch.
