|Pair of Orioles looking to prove themselves this spring |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(2/5/14) Orioles newcomers such as second baseman Jemile Weeks and catcher Johnny Monell must show their versatility by playing multiple positions to maximize their chances of making the team out of spring training, according to the Baltimore Sun.
Weeks will compete with Ryan Flaherty for the starting job, but could earn a spot if he proves himself at shortstop and third base, where Alexi Casilla is also competing. Monell will battle Steve Clevenger for the backup role to Matt Wieters, but could also score points with Buck Showalter if he proves himself worthy at other positions.
|Report: Athletics acquire Jim Johnson for Jemile Weeks |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(12/2/13) The Orioles finally found a buyer for closer Jim Johnson prior to Monday's non-tender deadline, as FOXSports.com reports Johnson has been traded to the Athletics for infielder Jemile Weeks. Johnson is projected to earn at least $10 million in arbitration, after making $6.5 million last season while posting a 2.94 ERA and his second 50-save season in a row in 2013.
Weeks is a former first-round pick who has failed to live up to expectations in parts of three seasons in the majors. He appeared in just eight games for the Athletics last season, and has a career .258/.319/.357 line in 859 at-bats.
|Athletics recall Jemile Weeks |
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(9/1/13) The Athletics have recalled second baseman Jemile Weeks from Triple-A Sacramento, MLB.com reports. Weeks hit .271/.376/.369 with 17 stolen bases in 19 chances for Sacramento.
|Jemile Weeks to play infield and outfield |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/1/13) Athletics infielder Jemile Weeks saw some time in the outfield last weekend, and will continue to spend time out there, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
"He'll be in center field as much as he's comfortable being out there, but will continue to get time at second base and shortstop," assistant general manager David Forst said.
There's some indication the team is willing to trade Weeks, and using him in center field is a good way to boost his value. Weeks has no issues with the position change, saying it "came somewhat natural to me."
Weeks is hitting .264 in 73 games at Triple-A Sacremento. He has a .382 on-base percentage.
|Jemile Weeks plays in outfield at Triple-A |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(6/30/13) Athletics infielder Jemile Weeks played in center field Saturday for Triple-A Sacramento, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Weeks said it was the first time in his career he played in the outfield.
Weeks is batting .261 with three triples, three doubles and three RBI in 22 June games for Sacramento. He has a .265/.383/.364/.748 slash line in 72 games.
|Boy, did Jemile Weeks fall out of favor with the Athletics in hurry. After his 2011 rookie season, he was considered their only untouchable player, but he was left to bide his time in the minors for most of 2013, not even sniffing the majors until rosters expanded in September. This after a strong spring training when he was supposedly competing for a starting job. Of course, the reason he had to compete in the first place was because he bombed so badly as a sophomore, hitting .221 with a .609 OPS and 16 steals in 2012. He also didn't exactly force the Athletics' hand with his performance in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League last year, hitting .271 with a .745 OPS and 17 steals. Still, he walks at a high rate and plays a premium position. You'd think he'd get a longer look. Maybe now that he's with the Orioles, having come over in the Jim Johnson trade this offseason, he'll get one. Baltimore has an opening at second base with Brian Roberts out of the picture and doesn't seem to think prospect Jonathan Schoop is quite ready. Weeks' potential in stolen bases and runs scored would make him a sleeper if he's able to secure a job, but right now, he's better left for AL-only leagues.
