Mariners LF Rickie Weeks designated for assignment


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/13/2015) The Mariners have designated struggling left fielder Rickie Weeks for assignment, per MLB.com.

“Rickie is a professional,” manager Lloyd McClendon said, per The News Tribune. “He was a positive influence on a lot of guys in that locker room. It just didn’t work out on the field for whatever reason.

“With the stress that we had on the bullpen, it was just a move we had to make.”

Weeks is hitting just .167 with two home runs and nine RBI in 84 at-bats this season.

Mariners make wholesale changes to spark lineup


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/20/2015) The slumping Mariners juggled their lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles, hoping to find a spark for a team that hasn't lived up to expectations. 

Willie Bloomquist returns to the starting lineup for the first time in 11 games, hitting second and playing left field, while Justin Ruggiano and Rickie Weeks also draw rare starts in center and DH, respectively. 

Those moves bump Dustin Ackley and Brad Miller out of the lineup. Ackley has seen his average plummet to .186 this season. Miller has been one of the hottest Seattle hitters, but went 0-for-4 Tuesday to snap a six-game hitting streak.

The Mariners are slotting Justin Ruggiano in the leadoff slot and starting him in center field. It's the 19th time he's acted as his team's leadoff hitter, and he's posted a .177/.261/.380 line with four home runs and four stolen bases in 79 at-bats while in the No. 1 slot.

Rickie Weeks is getting the start in left field and batting sixth Monday, while Willie Bloomquist is playing first base and batting eighth.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Weeks came up in the seventh inning to bat for Seth Smith and ripped the second pitch he saw from Eric O'Flaherty to center field, driving home Dustin Ackley and Mike Zunino.

"I knew I got it good, but here, you never know," he said to MLB.com. "It takes a pretty good poke to get it out in center, depending on what the wind is doing. So I didn't know. But it was obviously a situation where I wanted to come through."

It was Weeks' first home run of the year and first three RBI. He is now hitting .143 in 14 at-bats this season.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Weeks slid into the leadoff spot as the designated hitter, with Nelson Cruz moving to right field on Tuesday against the Angels.

"I'm sure he'll be fine," McClendon said. "He's had plenty of fly balls. He knows the speed of the game. He just didn't get a lot of action there in spring, but we can't run from that now. He'll play some left field, he's just not playing there today."

Mariners experimenting with Rickie Weeks in leadoff spot


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) 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.

"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."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Mariners to platoon Rickie Weeks and Dustin Ackley


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) The Mariners plan on using a platoon in left field this season, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Manager Lloyd McClendon confirmed the news, saying Rickie Weeks would mostly play left field this season. While that means Dustin Ackley's playing time will be reduced, McClendon said the club wasn't trying to send a message when it signed Weeks. "We’re trying to get better, and Rickie Weeks is a good player that can help us win ballgames," he said. "So I think the combination of both of those guys out there should produce a very productive left field."

Weeks was used as a platoon player last season, and put up strong numbers. The 32-year-old hit .274/.357/.452 over 252 at-bats. 

Ackley, 26, hit .245/.293/.398 over 502 at-bats.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

We look forward to Rickie’s contributions this season and see him as a very nice fit, complementing the pieces we already have in place."

Weeks hit .274/.357/.452 with eight home runs and 29 RBI in 252 at-bats with the Brewers last season.
