PHOENIX (AP) - Jemile Weeks refuses to point fingers or make excuses. The face responsible for his sub-par sophomore season is the one he sees in the mirror every morning.
The second baseman is now trying to regain his starting role with the Oakland Athletics. There are plenty of candidates in the infield.
Scott Sizemore returns after tearing his left knee last spring and missing the year. Jed Lowrie was obtained in a trade with the Houston Astros and the A's signed Japanese veteran Hiroyuki Nakajimi.
There also are veteran backups Adam Rosales and Eric Sogard.
Weeks, who led off for the A's in Saturday's spring opener at the Milwaukee Brewers, embraces the competition.
