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."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rickie Weeks feels scar tissue break free in hamstring


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Weeks is battling for the starting role at second base and went 1 for 2 with a run before exiting. He's 7 for 19 with one home run and five walks in eight spring games and figures to be leading the competition with Scooter Gennett, who entered play Wednesday just 2 for 21 with one home run and two walks.

Brewers unsure how second-base competition will play out


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2014) While early reports have held Scooter Gennett as the favorite to win the Brewers' second-base job over Rickie Weeks, manager Ron Roenicke told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel he's not sure yet how the situation will play out this spring.

"We're not exactly sure what's going to happen there. We have an idea. It's nice to have a couple of options there," he said. "Rick needs to get back where he was in 2011 and before. I'm hoping he can bounce back and be that guy again. If he does, then he makes it really tough on us.

"Last year, I thought the system worked really well. The first time we brought Scooter up, we platooned them and they both produced. I'm not saying it's going to be a platoon situation. If Scooter comes into camp and shows what he did last year; we liked his defense, also. He showed he can really hit. So, going into it, we're looking at two guys who we feel both can start in the big leagues. If it ends up being a platoon, fine."

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

However, there was no indication Tuesday the Royals were close to a deal for either player.


Rickie Weeks cools off following stellar June


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2013) Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks ended his home run drought at 15 games Saturday against the Marlins, belting a solo home run off Nate Eovaldi in the fourth inning.

After a strong performance in June, Weeks has cooled off in July. He is batting .213 (10 for 47) with two home runs, three doubles, three RBI, four runs and eight walks in 16 July games.


Rickie Weeks could use a healthy dose of Scooter Gennett


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/19/2013) When the Brewers called up Scooter Gennett to share the workload at second base on June 3, Rickie Weeks was hitting .184 with a .567 OPS. When the Brewers sent Gennett back down on June 27, Weeks was hitting .236 with a .731 OPS. That's because, in between, Weeks hit .435 (with five homers of his nine home runs this season) with a 1.370 OPS.

Now, here's the kicker: In 17 games since Gennett returned to the minors, Weeks is hitting .185 with a .609 OPS.

Come back, Scooter, and make the world right again.

No one can say for sure if that little incentive of having Gennett around is what caused Weeks to thrive for those three weeks in June, but it's pretty clear the longtime Fantasy mainstay isn't quite yet "fixed."

I just moved Weeks down to 20th in my second base rankings. The hope of an eventual home run surge really isn't worth passing on up-and-comers like Jedd Gyorko, Anthony Rendon, Nick Franklin and, if it continues much longer, perhaps even Brad Miller.
