Rickie Weeks 2B MIL 19 Days

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.

Rickie Weeks led off Sunday's game with a solo home run, powering the Brewers to a 6-5 victory over the Rockies in Cactus League action.

Entering camp as the underdog in a position battle with Scooter Gennett, Weeks is doing everything in his power to earn back his spot in the lineup.

George A. King III of the New York Post reports that the Yankees will monitor what the Brewers do with Rickie Weeks this spring.

Weeks is coming off a torn left hamstring and Scooter Gennett is the favorite for the starting second base job, so the Brewers will surely be willing to listen to offers. The 31-year-old is owed $11 million this year and has a $11.5 million vesting option for 2015.

Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel was told by a source that there is "nothing to" rumors of Rickie Weeks being traded to the Marlins.

There were multiple reports late Wednesday night that the Marlins were looking into Weeks, but it's an odd fit since the club just signed Rafael Furcal to sign second base. The Brewers appear ready to give the starting second base job to Scooter Gennett, but it will be tough to move Weeks, who is owed $11 million next season and has a vesting option for 2015.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish is hearing the Marlins have some interest in Rickie Weeks.

Earlier this offseason Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Scooter Gennett is penciled in as the team's starting second baseman next season, so the 31-year-old Weeks looks to be on the outs. Weeks is due $11 million in 2014 and has a vesting option for 2015. There hasn't been much buzz that the team is shopping Weeks, but he could likely be had for the right offer.
