Latest Update Brewers decline the $14.5 million option on 2B Rickie Weeks. Fri Oct, 31, 10:26 AM
Brings a rare combination of bat speed and patience at the plate, which can lead to plenty of home runs. Can also run pretty well and is solid at second base.
Flaws: : Strikes out a bit too much and doesn't post a good-enough batting average to be a table-setter. Has regressed over time and with greater exposure in MLB.
The declining option was not a particular surprise as his stat line was not indicative of a player who should be making $14.5 million a year. In 2014, he hit .274 with eight long balls, 29 RBIs, and three stolen bases.Analyst: Colby Conway
Weeks took left David Holmberg deep on Thursday, but that shouldn't come as a surprise, considering that seven of Weeks' eight home runs have come against southpaws. He may see another start over the weekend.Analyst: David Kerr
Weeks raised his average to .267 and tallied his 27th RBI on the year. Weeks has seven home runs this year and has yet to return to his 2012 form. Hopefully in 2015, he can return to his 2012 year.Analyst: Colby Conway
Weeks got a rare start and responded with an even rarer home run. Remember when he used to be an elite fantasy player? Now he is barely relevant in NL-only leagues.Analyst: Steve Pimental
