The Miami Marlins reportedly have some interest in Milwaukee Brewers 2B Rickie Weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Weeks' contract calls for $11 million in 2014, so it is unclear if the Marlins could take on all or some of that money. They have been adding players this offseason, but that type of money seems to be out of their ballpark.

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.

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.

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Rickie Weeks (hamstring) said he felt a pop in his left hamstring and was helped off the field Wednesday, Aug. 7.
Fantasy Tip: The injury will possibly put him on the shelf for a couple of weeks. He's hitting .209 with 10 homers in a largely lost season. It wouldn't be surprising to see him go on the DL.

The Kansas City Royals have had discussions about trading for Chicago White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Howie Kendrick and Milwaukee Brewers 2B Rickie Weeks as they seek to upgrade second base. However, there's no indication that the Royals are close to any trade at this time. They have yet to rule out trading SP Ervin Santana. Weeks is owed $11 million next year and has an $11.5 million option in 2015, and the Royals will not want to take that money on. Kansas City has also looked at Philadelphia Phillies INF Kevin Frandsen.
