Weeks lands on DL

Milwaukee second baseman Rickie Weeks is expected to miss three to six weeks with a severe ankle sprain. But don't fret Brewers fans, The Predator is a tough kid.

Milwaukee catalyst Rickie Weeks, the All-Star second baseman who resembles more of a strong safety than a middle infielder, was placed on the 15-day disabled list with what Brewers officials are calling a “severe ankle sprain.” Weeks is not expected to need surgery and will miss anywhere from three to six weeks. The kid’s a tough player who has dealt with injuries in the past, so I have an inkling that we’ll see The Predator back sooner than later. Craig Counsell, currently in an abysmal 0-for-38 skid, replaces Weeks in the lineup for the afternoon game today at Miller Park. Milwaukee called up second baseman Eric Farris to replace Weeks’ spot on the 25-man roster.
