Milwaukee Brewers 2B Rickie Weeks (hamstring) underwent successful surgery on his left hamstring Thursday, Aug. 15, and he'll need four to six months of rehab.
Fantasy Tip: Scooter Gennett has taken over at second base for Weeks and should be considered in cavernous mixed formats for middle infield depth.

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Rickie Weeks (hamstring) is expected to undergo surgery on his hamstring and miss the rest of the year.
Fantasy Tip: This boosts Scooter Gennett's NL-only league value for the remainder of the year. Weeks can be dumped in all formats.

The Milwaukee Brewers placed 2B Rickie Weeks (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring Thursday, Aug. 8, and they'll recall 2B Scooter Gennett from the minors Friday, Aug. 9.
Fantasy Tip: Expect Gennett to see most of the PT at the keystone in Weeks' absence. Pick up Gennett if you're hurting for middle infielders in NL-only leagues.

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Rickie Weeks (hamstring) will head for an MRI exam on his left hamstring, and he's likely to land on the disabled list. Weeks is hitting only .209 with 10 home runs and 24 RBIs this year.
Fantasy Tip: Jeff Bianchi filled in at the keystone last night and will likely do so again today. Scooter Gennett, who was just sent to the minors recently, will likely be recalled if Weeks lands on the DL. Gennett would likely start regularly over Bianchi, so look to acquire him in NL leagues if he comes back up.

The Milwaukee Brewers have activated SP Marco Estrada (back, hamstring) from the 15-day disabled list. In a corresponding move, the team optioned 2B Scooter Gennett to Triple-A Nashville.

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett will be promoted from Triple-A Nashville Tuesday, July 30, as the 26th player for the scheduled doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs. Gennett will start one of the two games, giving 2B Rickie Weeks (rest) one game to rest.

The Milwaukee Brewers recalled 1B Sean Halton from the minors Thursday, June 27, and optioned 2B Scooter Gennett in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: This is good news for Rickie Weeks, who presumably will no longer be involved in a platoon at second base. More playing time advocates more trust in him in deep leagues.
Tue, 04 Jun 2013 05:09:12 -0700
Milwaukee Brewers 2B Rickie Weeks will platoon at second base with 2B Scooter Gennett. Weeks will start against left-handers and some right-handers, while Gennett will play against righties.
Fantasy Tip: Gennett was hitting .297-1-13 with eight steals at Triple-A, so it's not like Weeks can't earn that playing time back. However, his season-long slump has likely wrote his ticket out of Milwaukee via trade if he rekindles any kind of value. You can drop him in most formats if you need the roster spot. Gennett is an NL-only grab right now.

The Milwaukee Brewers called up 2B Scooter Gennett from the minors Monday, June 3, and optioned SP Mike Fiers in a corresponding move.
