Weeks could be out for weeks

"Placed INF Rickie Weeks on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to 6/7, with a sprained left knee
He won't need surgery, but it sounds like he could be out a while. "We're still undetermined on his long-term status," Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash said. "There's no real certainty on how long it will take to get him [healthy]." He's eligible to return on June 22."

I had high hopes for Weeks and he was actually playing ok even though his avg. sucked razzballs. Who should I look to pickup in his absence? I'm off to scour the waiver wire.

Weeks was wounded weeks after returning from an earlier injury which kept him out for weeks. We don't know how many weeks Weeks will miss yet. Weeks will likely face weak pitchers in a week-long rehabilitation start. While weak, Weeks will spend weeks strengthening his weak knee in hopes that he will be able to play in the remaining 17 weeks of the 2008 MLB season. Hopefully Weeks isn't weak after recovering from this latest injury, as everyone knows if the Crew wants to shake their weak start they will need a non-weak Weeks in the everyday lineup.

Ugh...Weeks being out hurts, but lets hope he comes back like he did last September and dominate. Wishful thinking huh?

I was lucky enough to grab Luis Castillo.

I know Grey loves Ty Wiggington but I'll take Castillo at least for a short-term fill.

had a trade request for weeks earlier, but figgins just landed back on the DL so I passed...

now i'll probably never start him again for the rest of the season, unless figgin does it again
