Brewers | Scooter Gennett still a platoon player

Thu, 26 Jun 2014 21:11:34 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett was not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 26, against Colorado Rockies SP Christian Friedrich, and manager Ron Roenicke gave no indication that he would change the platoon rotation that has Gennett starting against righties and 2B Rickie Weeks starting against lefties.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett did pinch hit later in the game and hit a home run, boosting his average to .311 in what has been an excellent season at the plate overall. That being said, his value is going to continue to be curbed in standard formats unless he can shake his platoon status.

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Rickie Weeks was asked by the team to try left field. Weeks declined.

Fantasy Tip: He's complacent being in a time share with Scooter Gennett. Maybe Weeks will relent eventually, but his current status doesn't do much for his value, which is strictly NL-only unless you have a loHe's complacent being in a time share with Scooter Gennett.

Brewers | Rickie Weeks pops scar tissue

Wed, 12 Mar 2014 15:10:34 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Rickie Weeks (hamstring) said he felt his scar tissue "popping" in his hamstring while running the bases, but he sees it as a good thing. Weeks says he's fine.

Fantasy Tip: The tearing and popping of scar tissue can be a regular occurrence post-surgery, and it sounds like Weeks could be fine. Keep an eye on him. It's not exactly what you want to hear if you're targeting him as a late-round sleeper in mixed leagues.

Brewers | Rickie Weeks makes mechanical adjustment

Tue, 04 Mar 2014 18:28:17 -0800

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Rickie Weeks has made some mechanical adjustment to his stance this swing, and manager Ron Roenicke is loving the early returns in camp. Weeks had consistently kept his hands low in his stance, but now, he's altered the position of his hands after input from former minor league hitting coach Nate Oliver. "Keeping things smooth, really," Weeks said when asked to describe the tweak. "If you keep it smooth, everything kind of falls into place. The biggest thing is slowing down. My hands are a tad bit higher. It's a minute (difference)."

He's gone 4-for-9 with a home run and four walks in his first four spring games and is feeling great at the dish. He's also in the final year of his contract and is in a battle for playing time at second base with 2B Scooter Gennett. The Brewers are saying the keystone is an open competition. Milwaukee may decide to trade one of their second baseman later in camp, or they could go with a platoon.
