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."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rickie Weeks feels scar tissue break free in hamstring


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks said he felt a pop in his hamstring Wednesday that was the result of scar tissue breaking free and classified the development as "great," MLB.com reports.

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.

Yankees expected to monitor Rickie Weeks situation

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."


Marlins an unlikely destination for Rickie Weeks


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/12/2013) Though the Marlins have reportedly shown interest in Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks, a Brewers source told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Thursday that reports of Weeks going to the Marlins are untrue.

Weeks is presumed to be expendable with the emergence of Scooter Gennett last year, but the Marlins have already signed Rafael Furcal to serve as their second baseman in 2014.
