Description: Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks will need surgery on his injured left hamstring. SOURCE: Todd Rosiak, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
Insight: He's done for the year. Weeks will finish the season with 10 HR, 24 RBI and a .209 batting average in 104 games. Scooter Gennett is starting at second base tonight against Seattle.

Description: Milwaukee second baseman Rickie Weeks has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.
Insight: Weeks suffered the injury Wednesday while running out a grounder in the eighth inning and told reporters he felt a " little pop" in the hamstring. Weeks traveled back to Milwaukee Thursday for an MRI. The results of the test aren't yet known, but the team must already know that the injury will keep him out for two weeks or more.

Description: Milwaukee second baseman Rickie Weeks felt a "pop" in his hamstring Wednesday against the Giants. SOURCE: Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
Insight: Weeks suffered the injury while running out a grounder in the eighth inning. The Brewers are calling his injury a strained hamstring but we think it could be more serious than that. Either way, we'd be shocked if Weeks is able to avoid the disabled list.
 
8/4/2013 1:56:00 PM
Description: Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is not in Sunday's lineup versus Washington.
Insight: The low-average hitting Weeks (.215, 10 HR, 24 RBI, 7 SB) needs to get going if he is to put up 20 homers for a fifth consecutive season. He is 3-for-8 in the first two games of the series with the Nats.
 
7/25/2013 10:05:00 AM
Description: Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is a career .412 hitter against Padres starter Edinson Volquez with a pair of homers and a 1.347 OPS.
Insight: The low-average hitting Weeks (.217, 10 HR, 22 RBI, 7 SB) needs to get going if he is to put up 20 homers for a fifth consecutive season. He's also just 2-for-21 since the All-Star break so he needs this favorable matchup to hopefully get him started.
 
7/14/2013 12:15:00 PM
Description: Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is hitting just .193 (11-for-57) with 17 strikeouts over his last 17 games, and he's just 3-for-18 (.167) with four strikeouts against Diamondbacks starter Ian Kennedy.
Insight: Weeks looked to be breaking out of his season-long slump when he hit .444 with five homers and a 1.399 OPS in 15 games from June 2-26, but he has slipped back into it over the past few weeks. Combine that with his matchup Sunday against Kennedy, and fantasy owners should not have Weeks in the lineup.
 
7/10/2013 10:02:00 AM
Description: Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is a career .556 hitter (5-for-9) with a pair of home runs and four extra base hits against Reds starter Mike Leake.
Insight: Weeks, a lifetime .250 hitter, is 3-for-7 in the first two games of the series. When you find a favorable matchup like this, you have to jump on it because it happens so rarely.
 
7/8/2013 10:22:00 AM
Description: Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is a career .458 hitter (11-for-24) with a pair of home runs against "Mr. Two No Hitters" Homer Bailey.
Insight: Weeks is a lifetime .249 hitter, so when you find a favorable matchup like this, you have to jump on it because it happens so rarely.
 
7/2/2013 4:12:00 PM
Description: Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is hitting .333 over the past four weeks to bring his average to a much more respectable .228.
Insight: That's still not very good, but it's a sign of how well he's been swinging the bat that the team has him in the No. 3 hole on Tuesday.
 
Hot6/27/2013 10:23:00 AM
Description: Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is hitting .435 with a 1.370 OPS in June, but he has been stymied by Matt Garza in his career.
Insight: Weeks has gone 2-for-17 with eight strikeouts against the Cubs hurler. The second baseman has put his season back on track after hitting under .200 in each of the first two months, but there's no reason to play him Thursday.
 
Hot6/25/2013 11:03:00 PM
Description: Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks slugged two homers and went 3-for-4 with four RBI Tuesday against the Cubs.
Insight: Weeks is batting .439 with two doubles, a triple, five homers, nine RBI, 10 runs and an 8/5 K/BB over his last 14 games (11 starts). That platoon with Scooter Gennett should be coming to an end. Fantasy owners need to get Weeks back in the lineup.
 
6/20/2013 1:52:00 PM
Description: Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is not in Thursday's starting lineup against Houston.
Insight: Despite a home run last night and hits in 16 of his last 19 games, Weeks is platooning with Scooter Gennett at second base.
 
6/15/2013 1:00:00 PM
Description: Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is 11-for-25 (.458) with a pair of home runs and a 1.302 OPS against Reds starter Homer Bailey.
Insight: Weeks is now platooning with Scooter Gennett at second base. but you have to like him on Saturday if he's in the lineup. Latest update - Weeks is not in the lineup.

Cold6/6/2013 5:09:00 PM
Description: Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is out of the lineup Thursday.
Insight: Weeks is now platooning with Scooter Gennett at second base due to his .165 batting average against right-handers. He can be safely dropped in most leagues.
 
Cold6/4/2013 5:09:00 PM
Description: Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Athletics with right-hander A.J. Griffin on the hill. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Monday that he would be going with a "loose" platoon between Weeks and Scooter Gennett at second base.
Insight: Weeks is creeping towards the Mendoza line by hitting .313 over his last 10 games. He's batting .192 with four homers, 12 RBI, 24 runs and four steals this season. However, he must improve against right-handers -- he's 19-for-115 (.165) with 41 K against righties -- if he wants to avoid losing at-bats to Gennett.
 
Cold5/24/2013 6:05:00 PM
Description: Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is out of the lineup Friday against the Pirates.
Insight: Weeks is hitting .169 with three homers and 52 K in 45 games this season and is 6-for-53 (.113) over his last 18 games.
 
Cold5/21/2013 4:29:00 PM
Description: Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is getting the day off Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Insight: Weeks is off to another terrible start, hitting .168 with three homers. He hit .183 with six homers and 94 strikeouts through June 30 last year, but rebounded to bat .269 with 15 homers and 75 K over his final 84. However, it will take extreme patience to wait for another resurgence.
 
Cold5/16/2013 9:38:00 AM
Description: Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks hit his third homer of the season Wednesday against the Pirates.
Insight: Weeks is off to another terrible start, hitting .187. He hit .183 with six homers and 94 strikeouts through June 30 last year, but rebounded to bat .269 with 15 homers and 75 K over his final 84. There's reason to believe he'll have another resurgence. He has a 14 percent BB rate and a 19.8 percent line-drive rate (16.9 percent LD in 2012), but his BABIP is an unlucky .250.
 
Cold4/9/2013 11:00:00 AM
Description: Brewers' second baseman Rickie Weeks is an .063 hitter (1-for-16) against Chicago Cubs starter Travis Woods.
Insight: Weeks started the season on a five-game hitting streak, but is 0-for-10 over his last two starts and this unfavorable matchup should have fantasy owners sitting him down on Tuesday for a rest day.
