|Hot Rickie Weeks goes deep Thursday against Reds |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(9/25/14) Suddenly sizzling Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks blasted off for the second time in six games Thursday in a loss at Cincinnati.
Weeks cranked out his eighth homer, a solo shot to open the scoring in the second inning, and added a single. He has seven hits in his last 12 at-bats and has raised his average to .272, its peak point since June 22.

(8/13/14) Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 4-2 loss to the Cubs Wednesday.
Weeks' seventh-inning home run was immediately followed up with another home run by the next batter, but that was all the offense the Brewers could manage in the loss. He has hit .258/.338/.414 with five home runs and 21 RBI in 198 at-bats.
|Rickie Weeks launches three-run home run Friday |

(8/9/14) Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks didn't draw a start Friday but still made his presence felt, going 1 for 1 with a walk and a three-run home run in his team's 9-3 win over the Dodgers.
Weeks scored after drawing a walk in a pinch-hit at-bat in the seventh inning then delivered his big shot to center field in the eighth. While Friday's home run was his first since June 26, he has started to heat up in the last few days, going 4 for 9 with three walks, a double and a home run in his last four games. Weeks has hit .257/.340/.398 with four home runs and 20 RBI in 191 at-bats.
|Brewers might be moving away from second-base platoon |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(6/22/14) Although Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks was in the starting lineup Saturday and Sunday against the Rockies with a left-handed starter on the mound, manager Ron Roenicke indicated it might be time to start moving away from the second-base platoon and start giving Scooter Gennett starts against lefties.
"Scooter is a guy who eventually I'd like to see out there against some left-handers," Roenicke said, per MLB.com. "I think he's getting more confident against the left-handers. He can hit. There's no reason why he can't hit left-handers."
While Gennett is batting just .138 against lefties in 28 games this season, his success since moving to the leadoff spot in the lineup is a main reason why Roenicke is pondering starting Gennett against lefties. Gennett is batting .450 (18 for 40) in nine games batting leadoff.
"Maybe he ends up being a leadoff hitter for years, I don't really know," Roenicke said. "But I think what he's doing right now is going to help him in the future no matter where he's hitting in the lineup. It's forced him to really look at pitches and concentrate more instead being up there just as a free-swinger like he was."
|Rickie Weeks continues to hit lefties Friday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(5/31/14) Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks continued his assault on lefties Friday.
Weeks collected three hits during the game, finished 3 for 4. He singled and doubled off left-handed starter Travis Wood, and later added another single against a right-hander. Weeks scored three runs and drove in two RBI. He's hitting .321 in 78 at-bats.
|After a miserable start to 2012, Rickie Weeks recovered to hit his usual .269 with 16 homers and an .812 OPS over his final 97 games. So of course, when he got off to a similar start in 2013, his Fantasy owners were content to wait ... and wait and wait. The most patient kept waiting right up until he tore his hamstring in early August -- an injury that required season-ending surgery. You could argue, then, that he didn't get a fair chance to right the ship before getting hurt, but it's not like he was showing signs of life in the weeks leading up to the injury. The only time he offered any reason for optimism was when he homered five times during a 20-game stretch while on the verge of losing his job to Scooter Gennett in June. Gennett, of course, replaced Weeks for the final two months and showed no inclination of relinquishing the role, batting .354 with five homers and an .882 OPS in 161 at-bats. The possibility of Weeks needing right up until spring training to recover from surgery hurts his trade value, which is unfortunate since a trade is his best chance of getting regular at-bats in 2014. At age 31, he still offers enough power potential for mixed leagues, but without a clear role, he'll likely go undrafted in those formats.
