Mariners experimenting with Rickie Weeks in leadoff spot
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Mariners outfielder Rickie Weeks is leading off for the team Wednesday, with regular leadoff man Austin Jackson sliding to the No. 2 spot, and manager Lloyd McClendon could use Weeks atop the lineup at times this season, MLB.com reports.
"I like Rickie as a leadoff hitter, too," McClendon said Wednesday. "Austin led off yesterday, Rickie is leading off today. I’m just playing with things. That’s all."
McClendon indicated that both players have different strengths that could be a fit atop the lineup.
"Every player is different. They all have their strengths and weaknesses," McClendon said. "Rickie has close to 3,000 at-bats in the leadoff spot and 100 home runs. There’s a lot to like about him there. Austin is a speed guy that hits a lot of triples and doubles. They both bring a lot to the table."
Weeks is expected to split time in left field with Dustin Ackley this season.
Illness postpones Rickie Weeks' first-base work for Mariners
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/20/15) Mariners outfielder Rickie Weeks was about to begin work at first base, but his spring debut at the position was delayed due to illness.
"We'd planned to take him out yesterday (to work at first), but he was a little dehydrated and throwing up," McClendon said, per MLB.com's Greg Johns. "He's going to get some at-bats at the Triple-A side today. He'll take it easy and we'll get him back out there tomorrow. As he progresses, we'll try to get him out there to start doing some things."
Mariners' Rickie Weeks bats leadoff due to dentist appointment
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/18/15) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon told reporters that he wasn't experimenting with a new-look lineup when he had Rickie Weeks bat leadoff Wednesday against the A's. Instead, Weeks got his at-bats in early because of a dentist appointment, according to the Tacoma News Tribune.
"He's got a 4:30 dentist appointment," McClendon said. "He needs to get three at-bats pretty quickly. Really, that's the only reason he's up there."
Mariners ready to have Rickie Weeks work at first base
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/17/15) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Tuesday outfielder Rickie Weeks will begin to work at first base in the near future, per the Tacoma News Tribune. Weeks has played in left field to begin the spring.
“I’m not sure when you’ll see him in a game," McClendon said of Weeks playing at first base.
Mariners' Rickie Weeks returns from injury with two doubles
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/14/15) Mariners second baseman Rickie Weeks ripped two doubles in his first appearance since suffering a hamstring injury. Weeks missed two games with the injury and manager Lloyd McClendon noticed he was being cautious running the bases, reports MLB.com.
"He's still running a little bit carefully, but he swung the bat great," said McClendon. "He's OK."
|2014 summary: One year after a dreadful start to the season cost him his job, Rickie Weeks bounced back with his best OPS since 2011, his lone All-Star season, and his second-best batting average ever. Problem is he did it while confined to a Brewers platoon role, mostly just spelling Scooter Gennett against left-handed pitchers. He actually hit for a higher average (.294) against righties than lefties, which bodes well for him as he enters free agency.|
Playing time status: Most likely, Weeks will be angling for a starting role this offseason, and he deserves that opportunity. His .809 OPS would have ranked fourth among full-time second baseman in 2014 (that's including Anthony Rendon), and at 32, he probably has at least a couple good years left. Whether or not a team bites, though, remains to be seen.
2015 outlook: If a team does bite, Weeks has genuine sleeper appeal at a position with no shortage of regression candidates at the top. He's already shown he can be an impact player in Fantasy, hitting 20-plus homers in three straight seasons beginning in 2010, and he got sidetracked mostly because of bad luck and bad timing. With full-time at-bats, he'll be worth a late-round pick even in mixed leagues.
