Brewers | Rickie Weeks close to returning

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Rickie Weeks (ankle) ran in the outfield Monday, Sept. 5, and is very close to being activated from the DL. Manager Ron Roenicke said Weeks could be activated to pinch hit as early as this weekend. "If we activate him, it's not activating him so he can play second base," Roenicke said. "It's activating him so he can bat, and if we get in a game where we're up a lot or down a lot, maybe we can put him at second base for a couple innings. Something to ease him in." It will be at least a week to 10 days before he is ready to play the field.
