Rays' Rickie Weeks: Works out at first base Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeks, who reported to Rays camp Friday, was at first base in his initial workout, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 34-year-old has extensive experience at second base and also was deployed in the outfield with the Diamondbacks last season, but will be acclimating to a new position in his 14th major league campaign. With the news that manager Kevin Cash has decided on Brad Miller as his second baseman, Weeks will be left to platoon with Logan Morrison at first base. With a solid .284/.368/.642 line and .419 wOBA against southpaws in 2016, the veteran could offer some serviceable production in his role.

Rays' Rickie Weeks: To be counted against southpaws in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeks will be counted on to serve as a "pretty big bat" against left-handed pitching according to manager Kevin Cash, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The veteran slashed .284/.368/.642 with a .358 ISO and .419 wOBA in 76 plate appearances against southpaws last season, and boasts a .370 wOBA for his career against lefties. Therefore, Cash's optimism in that regard is well-founded, but it remains to be seen if Weeks can perform well enough as a non-roster invitee to secure a roster spot, and if so, any semblance of regular playing time. The 34-year-old saw action in 97 games as a left fielder in Arizona last season, and was deployed in right field for five other contests. Weeks also handled the DH role for 22 games, but he faces a relatively crowded field at all of those positions in Tampa to begin spring training. However, there is some talk about the possibility of Weeks platooning with Logan Morrison at first base, but that remains speculative. With his 2017 outlook far from certain, the exhibition slate should go a long way in sorting out Weeks' situation.

Rays' Rickie Weeks: Signs minor league deal with Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeks signed a minor league deal with the Rays on Friday that includes an invitation to spring training, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports.

He was predominantly used as a left fielder and pinch hitter with the Diamondbacks last season, and from a real life standpoint, he was a replacement level player (0.1 fWAR). His .239 average, nine home runs and five steals were of little use in fantasy leagues. The Rays already have very crowded outfield and designated hitter situations, so Weeks is likely to spend most of 2017 serving as organizational depth.

Diamondbacks' Rickie Weeks: Returns to lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeks (ankle) is back in the lineup Friday against the Reds.

After being limited to bench duty for nearly a week due to an ankle sprain, Weeks will return to left field and the five-hole against lefty Brandon Finnegan. Weeks has a 300-plus point lefty/righty OPS split this season, with a .992 mark against left-handed pitching compared to a .673 mark against righties. He will likely continue to serve on the short end of a platoon moving forward.

Diamondbacks' Rickie Weeks: Remains out of lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Weeks (ankle) remains out of the lineup Thursday against the Braves.

This marks Weeks' fifth straight absence from the starting lineup, but he has appeared off the bench in each of the last three games, which would suggest he's not in immediate danger of landing on the DL. That said, it's uncertain when Weeks will be well enough to field a position for a full nine innings. He suffered a "mild" ankle sprain last weekend.
