Jemile Weeks (shoulder) is expected to return to Cactus League games Monday.
Weeks has missed the last week with a shoulder bruise. While the Athletics don't consider the injury serious, he'll need to stay healthy if he hopes to win the second base job in spring training.

X-rays on Jemile Weeks' right shoulder came back negative.
Weeks suffered a bone bruise in his shoulder last Friday when he got tangled up at second base on a double-play attempt. While it's a tough blow considering that he's trying to win the second base job, he could return to game action by Sunday.

Jemile Weeks went 2-for-2 with a solo homer in Wednesday's win over the Padres.
Weeks also walked and scored a pair of runs. The former first-round pick has picked up five hits in his first eight at-bats this spring while driving in four runs. However, he could still be out of a roster spot with Jed Lowrie expected to spend most of his time at second base.

Jemile Weeks finished 2-for-3 with two RBI in the A's loss to the Indians on Monday in Arizona.
Weeks was caught stealing on his one attempt, but it was a good day overall. The talented former first-round pick is hoping to prove to A's management this spring that he can be relied on as an everyday second baseman. If he wins that job, he'll carry decent fantasy value.

The Athletics' second base job "will be an open competition" between Jemile Weeks and Scott Sizemore.
Weeks dealt with health issues and struggled with effectiveness in 2012, but he'll enter spring training as the slight favorite for a starting role. After missing all of last season due to injury, Sizemore is also a candidate for playing time at third base with Josh Donaldson, and could be a potential fantasy sleeper if he can find his way into an everyday job.
