Jemile Weeks 2B BAL 4 Days
Orioles acquired 2B Jemile Weeks and a player to be named later from the Athletics in exchange for RHP Jim Johnson.
Weeks had a promising rookie season but was way down the A's depth chart after batting just .219/.301/.300 the last two years. He lands in a good spot in Baltimore, as they're not set at the second base position. At best, though, he'll likely have to beat out a host of competitors for the job.

Athletics recalled INF Jemile Weeks from Triple-A Sacramento.
The 26-year-old former top prospect was hitting .271/.376/.369 with four homers, 40 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 130 games at Triple-A. He's split his time there between shortstop, second base and the outfield, and is likely to be used in a utility role with the A's.

Jemile Weeks played center field for the first time in his career this past Saturday at Triple-A Sacramento.
The A's aren't fully committed to changing his position yet, but they're clearly open to experimenting. Weeks was drafted as a second baseman (12th overall) in 2008 and has only played second base at the major league level. He's batting .264/.382/.366 this year in Triple-A.

Two scouts told Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle that the Athletics are willing to trade Jemile Weeks but are "asking for quite a bit" in return.
Weeks doesn't seem to really be in the A's plans anymore, as he's been used as a utility player and DH at Triple-A Sacramento lately. Though his recent track record in the majors is poor, he's a guy that could have some success with a change of scenery.

Jemile Weeks has been playing some shortstop at Triple-A Sacramento.
Weeks offered to learn the position in hopes that it would give him a better chance to be called up. He's actually appeared in more games as a shortstop (14) than he has as a second baseman (12) for Sacramento, and River Cats manager Steve Scarsone has told Bob Melvin that Weeks is "very playable" at the position. Weeks is batting .285/.413/.376 with two homers and eight steals at Triple-A.

Athletics optioned 2B Jemile Weeks and OF Shane Peterson to Triple-A Sacramento.
Weeks dealt with a shoulder injury this spring and fell behind Scott Sizemore for the starting second base job. He'll need to reestablish himself in the minors before being considered for a promotion. Peterson should make his big league debut at some point in 2013.
