MILWAUKEE (AP) -Rickie Weeks received a cortisone injection in his right wrist Friday, and the Milwaukee Brewers said a diagnosis was confirmed that the second baseman has tendinitis in the wrist.
Weeks took a flight to Phoenix on Friday and was examined by Dr. Don Sheridan, the physician who repaired the wrist in surgery last summer.
The team said Sheridan confirmed the second baseman has tendinitis and found the repair made on Aug. 25 was stable.
Weeks, placed on the disabled list this week, received the injection in the tendon sheath of his wrist and was told not to participate in any baseball activities for several days, the Brewers said.
He needed the surgery to fix a tendon that was snapping out of place. He initially injured it wagging a bat in the dugout on July 25.
Weeks has said he expected to have soreness in the wrist this season as scar tissue breaks up. Manager Ned Yost said Weeks likely will have soreness at times during the entire season, but the discomfort was enough that the team decided to place him on the disabled list this week.
