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.


Illness postpones Rickie Weeks' first-base work for Mariners


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2015) 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
(3/18/2015) 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
(3/17/2015) 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
(3/14/2015) 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."


Mariners OF Rickie Weeks (hamstring) expects to DH on Sat.


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2015) Mariners outfielder Rickie Weeks said his sore hamstring is better Friday and he is likely to return to spring action as the DH on Saturday, per the Tacoma News Tribune. Weeks was held out of action Thursday after dealing with hamstring tightness Wednesday.

Mariners' Rickie Weeks sidelined by hamstring tightness


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2015) Mariners outfielder Rickie Weeks developed some hamstring tightness during Wednesday's spring game against the Rockies, per MLB.com. He will not play Thursday against the Athletics, but he is expected to be back in the lineup shortly.

Weeks is batting .222 (2 for 9) with one home run, one RBI, one walk and two strikeouts in four spring games.


Mariners' Rickie Weeks will also play at first base this spring


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) Rickie Weeks has primarily been working in the outfield since arriving for spring training, but Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Monday that Weeks will also work at first base later this spring, per MLB.com.

“He will be that backup first baseman in case something happens,” said McClendon, noting he’s leaning more toward Weeks than fellow utility man Willie Bloomquist as a backup first baseman.


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. 


Mariners: Rickie Weeks 'will be used at multiple positions'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2015) The Mariners announced the signing of infielder/outfielder Rickie Weeks to a major-league contract Friday, with general manager Jack Zduriencik indicating in a statement that the long-time second baseman will be used in multiple ways.

"Rickie is a talented player who will be used at multiple positions," said Zduriencik. "His toughness, right-handed bat and Major League experience are desirable factors for our 2015 ball club. 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. He's played exclusively at second base in the majors since being selected second overall in the 2003 draft, but CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reported Thursday that Weeks would see time in the outfield with the Mariners.


Mariners sign second baseman Rickie Weeks to a one-year deal


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2015) The Mariners have signed infielder Rickie Weeks, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, who added the plan is for Weeks to be used in the outfield. Heyman also reports Weeks will get a $2 million salary and could make $2 million in incentives.

Weeks will make $2 million next season, and could earn up to $2 million more based on incentives. The 32-year-old Weeks hit .274/.357/.452 over 252 at-bats last year. He was mainly used in a platoon role, facing left-handers. The Brewers did not pick up Weeks' $14.5 million option, making him a free-agent. 


Everth Cabrera, Rickie Weeks could be on Blue Jays' radar


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) The Blue Jays might consider free agent infielder Everth Cabrera an option to play second base, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Rickie Weeks might also draw some consideration, but he appears to be further down the list.

Report: Cardinals showing interest in Rickie Weeks as bench option


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) The Cardinals are showing some interest in free agent infielder Rickie Weeks as a right-handed bat off the bench, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He could also be a backup at first base, which would be a new position for the 32-year-old Weeks.

Weeks has spent his entire 11-year MLB career with the Brewers. He has played solely at second base in the majors.


Brewers decline option on 2B Rickie Weeks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) Second baseman Rickie Weeks, who has been playing with the Brewers since 2003, will be wearing a different uniform in 2015, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, which is reporting that the team will not pick up his $14.5 option.

The 32-year-old Weeks has certainly played himself out of that salary range. His production has dropped markedly in recent years, though his .274 average this season was his highest since 2006. Weeks, however, earned just 252 at-bats and struck out an alarming 73 times.


Hot Rickie Weeks goes deep Thursday against Reds


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2014) 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.


Rickie Weeks knocks fifth home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) 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


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) 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
(6/22/2014) 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
(5/31/2014) 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.


Rickie Weeks belts second home run


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2014) Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks belted his second home run Sunday against the Cubs.

Weeks took advantage of Cubs pitcher Travis Wood in the fifth inning. With a man on, Weeks obliterated an 88 mph fastball from Wood, and drove it out of Wrigley Field. The ball ended up on Waveland Avenue, just outside the stadium. It was Weeks' only hit of the game. He finished 1 for 4, with one run scored and two RBI. He's hitting .351.


Rickie Weeks up to .333 after three-hit game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks has played infrequently this season as the backup to Scooter Gennett, but he has certainly produced when given the chance. He was given the chance Thursday and produced three hits.

One of those hits was his first home run of the season in the third. Weeks fell one hit short of the cycle in raising his batting average to .333.


Rickie Weeks' batting average rising quickly


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2014) Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks scored the winning run on Mark Reynolds' RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning during Sunday's 6-5 win against the Yankees. Weeks had a season-high three hits, including his second double, and two RBI in the win.

Weeks' batting average is quickly on the rise in May after he hit .188 in April. He is batting .667 (8 for 12) through six May games (two starts), raising his season average to .318.


Rickie Weeks declines chance to try left field


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2014) Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks was asked by management whether he would try left field, but the backup infielder declined the opportunity, MLB.com reports.

Weeks has received just 35 at-bats this season while backing up Scooter Gennett at the keystone position, and the team has received less than promising production from left fielder Khris Davis this season. Weeks has hit .257/.333/.286 with no home runs and no RBI.


Rickie Weeks off to slow start in second-base platoon


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) After a promising spring, Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks has gotten off to a slow start offensively, as he platoons with Scooter Gennett at second base. Though, Weeks is in the lineup when a left-handed starter is on the hill and has made just four starts through 14 games.

"I see him in [batting practice], he still looks good," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said, per MLB.com. "But somewhere along the line, you need to have that feeling and get some hits and feel confident, and then hopefully that carries you for a long spell. There’s a lot of platoon systems that work really well. The guy who’s the right-handed hitter, he’s the one who’s got the games where you might not play for two weeks."

The challenge for Roenicke remains figuring out how to get Weeks going offensively.

"It may be difficult," Roenicke said. "We’re trying to win as many games as we can win, and I have to figure out who are the best guys to put out there that day. It’s difficult on some of them. It’s no different than a guy who is playing every single day [in the minor leagues], he comes to the big leagues and now he’s a bench player. It’s the same thing."


Rickie Weeks gets into lineup to face lefty starter


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:22 pm ET) Scooter Gennett started at second base for the Brewers during Monday's season opener against the Braves, but Rickie Weeks drew the start Tuesday as Atlanta started left-handed pitcher Alex Wood. Weeks did make a pinch-hit appearance Monday, grounding into an inning-ending double play in the bottom of the seventh.
