|Rickie Weeks returns to the lineup|
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(6/16/13) Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks returns to the lineup Sunday after three straight games on the bench, the club announced.
Weeks has been on fire over his last 15 games, as he owns a .366/.435/.610 line with two home runs. His OPS has risen a full 100 points to .648. The next question is if he can break out of his current platoon with left-handed rookie Scooter Gennett. Sunday's opposing starter, Johnny Cueto, is right-handed, so the platoon doesn't appear to be a strict one at this point.

(6/15/13) Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks has not played since June 12 at Miami and he wasn't in the lineup Saturday at Cincinnati, either.
Weeks is sitting in favor of Scooter Gennett, who is playing well for the Brewers. Weeks is batting just .211 on the season with five homers and 13 RBI over 199 at-bats.
That said, Weeks has gone 10 for 24 (.417) in June with two of his homers and three of his RBI.

(6/11/13) Few players tested Fantasy owners’ patience like Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks over the first quarter of the season. But a strong showing so far in June has some thinking Weeks may have finally figured things out.
Nando Di Fino explained on Tuesday’s broadcast of Fantasy Baseball Today how he viewed Weeks’ recent platoon as a “motivational tactic” that seems to have led to more production. He also answered whether he would rather have Weeks or Nick Franklin.

(6/11/13) Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks got his batting average over the Mendoza line for the first time since April 19 with a three-hit game Monday against the Marlins.
Weeks went 3 for 5 with a solo home run, which accounted for his lone RBI and run scored, in a 6-1 win.
Weeks is hitting .209 but has a .429 batting average with two home runs and three RBI in eight June games.
|Rickie Weeks in starting lineup Monday|

(6/10/13) Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is in the team's starting lineup Monday against the Marlins.
Weeks has been platooning with prospect Scooter Gennett recently, but will draw a start against Ricky Nolasco. Weeks was not in Sunday's lineup. Weeks is hitting just .199/.298/.314 in 191 at-bats this year.
|Rickie Weeks began 2012 as a much more patient hitter than he had been in the past, but the results only served to test the patience of Fantasy owners. Longer plate appearances resulted in more walks but also far more strikeouts than usual, which robbed Weeks of points on his batting average and extra-base power. He was far less selective over the last three months of the season, and his relative impatience paid off in the form of a .269/.350/.478 slash line. Those numbers are very much in line with Weeks' production from 2009 to 2011, so it appears that Weeks' .183/.303/.306 line from the first three months was just an outlier. Even with those bad months weighing down his overall numbers, Weeks finished as a top 12 second baseman in standard Rotisserie and Head-to-Head formats. He can probably be had in the early portion of the middle rounds, and if he can stay healthy and maintain more consistency, he could wind up being a steal. (Updated 1/2/13)|
