Latest Update Weeks doubles twice in Red Sox win Sat Sep, 13, 12:44 AM
Knows how to work counts, get on base with good regularity and steal bases. Therefore, he sets the table well and also puts pressure on defenses. Switch-hits and is versatile afield.
Flaws: : Is a bit undersized, so he has trouble generating a lot of home-run power in his swing, especially in the bigs. Could also stand to improve his overall defensive play, since he's a bit raw.
If Weeks was ever going to hit at the big league level he probably would have by now, though he will likely play most days down the stretch and we know he can steal some bases if he can get on base.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Weeks registered his first extra-base hit as a member of the Red Sox on Thursday in what was his thirds consecutive start at second base. However, he is only slashing .214/.267/.286 through his first 14 at-bats in Boston and there have been rumblings that the team will move Mookie Betts to second base, so there is very little to be excited about in his case the rest of the way.Analyst: Matthew Beck
While the .284/.398/.400 slash line looks good for the type of player Weeks is, his nine stolen bases and four caught-stealings are terrible. His defense is good, but without something more than batting average, he's not getting a worthwhile call-up anytime soon. Now with a groin strain and a trip to the DL, his chances of falling deeper into obscurity grow exponentially.Analyst: Howard Bender
Doesn't seem that long ago Weeks burst onto the scene in Oakland hitting .303 with 22 stolen bases in 97 games during his rookie season back in 2011. Expectations were high going into the 2012 season but Weeks struggled hitting just .221 before being demoted. Weeks has since appeared in just 11 major league games between the Athletics and Orioles who acquired him in the offseason. If Weeks is able to get one base he is a threat to steal but I dont expect him to provide much if any fantasy value until he sees consistent at bats. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
