Rickie Weeks 2B MIL 6 Days

Weeks went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored against the Reds on Thursday.

Weeks filled in for the injured Scooter Gennett (thigh) and came through offensively. However, he also committed a costly error on a dropped fly ball. The Brewers were eliminated from the playoffs Thursday, so the team has no incentive to bring Gennett back in a hurry, leaving a possibility for more starts at second base for Weeks.

Weeks was 1-for-1 with a walk and a three-run home run in Milwaukee's win over the Dodgers on Friday night.

He entered the game as a pinch hitter in the seventh as his mates put up four unearned runs to take the lead in the game, then launched his fourth home run in the eighth to ice the victory. A nice outburst, but he remains on the soft side of a platoon with Scooter Gennett which severely limits his fantasy value.

Rickie Weeks went 0-for-3 against the Rays on Monday to halt his hitting streak at seven games.

Weeks has gotten to play regularly of late with Scooter Gennett hurt, and he's been taking advantage, with eight hits, three doubles and three walks in 25 at-bats since the break. Gennett did return tonight, but since the game was in an AL park, Weeks was able to DH. He might sit tomorrow against Alex Cobb, but he'll be in Wednesday's lineup versus David Price.

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.
