Found August 09, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks, who left Wednesday night's game in the 8th innning, returned to Milwaukee to have an MRI on his left hamstring. As reported by Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, Weeks was examined by Brewers head physician William Raasch and it appeared the Weeks had suffered a serious hamstring strain.  As a result, Weeks will be placed on the 15-day disabled list prior to the team's series against the Seattle Mariners. "I know which way I would like to go," Roenicke said Thursday morning. "I think it will help when Raasch sees Rickie and gives us a timetable of what he thinks." The Brewers have been hampered with hamstring injuries all season.  Closer Jim Henderson when down in  May, Marco Estrada missed two months, Yovani Gallardo is currently on the DL, and now Rickie Weeks went down.  The injures come as a surprise to the training staff who focuses heavily on injury prevention. The injury to Weeks leaves the Brewers thin at second base.  Jeff Bianchi started at second base for Thursday's afternoon series finale.  Bianchi is in his second Major League season and is batting .247 with 17 rbi's in 63 games.  It Weeks missed significant time, the Brewers will have to consider roster moves to add a second baseman. Weeks is batting only .209 with 10 home runs and 24 rbi's in 350 at bats. He is a career .247 hitter with 140 home runs and 401 rbi's in 3,804 at bats.
