RICKIE WEEKS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Dustin Ackley and Rickie Weeks: The Unlikely Platoon Partners

So Far, So Good For Weeks and Ackley When Seattle Mariner’s GM Jack Zduriencik announced the signing of Rickie Weeks I was a little mystified.  When Big Jack later announced that Weeks would be playing in the outfield, specifically left field in a quasi-platoon role with Dustin Ackley, I really began to scratch my head. It just didn’t make sense to me. Rickie Weeks was adamant...

Rickie Weeks hit leadoff so he could make dentist appointment

For veteran players with a roster spot secured, spring training is less about proving themselves and more about getting the necessary reps needed to make sure they are sharp and ready for opening day. That’s the case for Rickie Weeks. Weeks signed a one-year contract with the Mariners last month, but has been slowed this...Read More

In New Digs, Rickie Weeks Looks To Make Most Of Chance With Seattle Mariners

Not many baseball players in this day and age stick around with one team for very long. Ever since free-agency leaped into the forefront, baseball has been largely built around high turnover with very few players donning one cap for the duration of their careers, let alone three or four years. The Philadelphia Phillies have multiple players who have spent their careers in red and...

Rickie Weeks homers over the batter’s eye in Peoria

For as bad of a year as Rickie Weeks had in 2014 with the Milwaukee Brewers, he still averaged 412 feet on his eight home runs. This winter, Weeks signed with the Seattle Mariners, and on Saturday, he gave his new club some encouragement by obliterating this homer over the batter’s eye in dead center field at Seattle’s Spring Training complex in Peoria. 410 to dead center...

Rickie Weeks – Another Platoon Piece For The Seattle Mariners

Last week, the Seattle Mariners added another right handed bat in former Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks. The Mariners and Weeks agreed to a club friendly $2 million / one year deal, with built in incentives in the unlikely event he’s used as more than a platoon against left handed pitching at the corner outfield positions or as an occasional reliever for Robinson...

Checked and the #MNTwins are NOT interested. — Darren Wolfson (@DarrenWolfson) January 29, 2015 Per this Darren Wolfson tweet from earlier today, the Twins apparently are among the majority of teams not interested in former Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks, or at least not keen on what...

Farewell My Love. Farewell Rickie Weeks.

When the Brewers played their last game of 2014 it was also the last game that Rickie Weeks will play for the Brewers. To some this will be good riddance. To others it's been a long time coming. To me? It's the end of an era. Rickie Weeks has been my favorite Brewers since before he was a Brewer. It was Rickie Weeks being drafted number two overall that brought the Brewers back in...

What is Rickie Weeks Worth?

Back in March, the only sports story Wisconsinites were talking about more than the Badgers’ Final Four run was the Brewers’ second-base battle. Young Scooter Gennett, coming off a fantastic rookie cup of coffee, challenged incumbent Rickie Weeks for the starting job. After a full slate of games down in Maryvale, manager Ron Roenicke essentially decided not to decide and chose...

The two competitors for the everyday starting job are veteran Rickie Weeks and youngster Scooter Gennett.
