MILWAUKEE (AP) -Rickie Weeks was out of the starting lineup for the Milwaukee Brewers for the second straight day as he continues to struggle with a sore right wrist.
Brewers manager Ned Yost said Weeks, who is batting .243 with five homers and 16 RBIs, could pinch hit, run or play the field as the Brewers opened a four-game set with the Florida Marlins on Thursday night. But the leadoff hitter has not been allowed to take batting practice.
Weeks needed season-ending surgery last year to fix a tendon that was snapping out of place. He hurt the wrist wagging a bat in the dugout on July 25.
He took it easy in the early part of spring training, and had been fine until a seven-game road trip earlier this month. He sat out the final game at Philadelphia on May 17, and the next series with the Minnesota Twins.
