Athletics | Jemile Weeks working at SS in minors

Oakland Athletics 2B Jemile Weeks is learning to play shortstop to improve his chances of another recall from Triple-A Sacramento. Manager Bob Melvin said it was Weeks' idea. "I talked to Sacramento manager Steve Scarsone, and he said he's very playable there," Melvin said. "He wanted to do it, based on the needs at the time. Like anybody, if you can play different positions, that gives you more chances to get here, whether it's at second or shortstop or in a utility role."
