RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

The Diamondbacks signed Weeks to a minor league deal and invited him to spring training, but he appeared to be a long shot to earn a 25-man roster spot at the outset of camp. With a move to the outfield in 2015 in Seattle, Weeks played sparingly for the Mariners, doing very little at the plate (.167/.263/.250) to force his way into the lineup. At this stage of his career, Weeks is best suited to play on the small side of a platoon, but considering that he was productive in that role for the Brewers in 2014 (.809 OPS), there may still be something left in the tank if he's used as a bench player.

2015

Last season marked the first time since 2004 that Weeks was not the Brewers’ primary second baseman. The job was instead handled by Scooter Gennett, who formed the left-handed side of the Brewers’ second base platoon and received 440 at-bats to Weeks’ 252. While his playing time decreased, Weeks finished 2014 with the his best offensive numbers since 2011. He will be a free agent this offseason, and it remains to be seen if he will return to Milwaukee, or head to a new club in search of more at-bats.

2014

Injuries and ineffectiveness plagued Weeks throughout 2013, and he finished with the lowest OPS of his career. Weeks has provided rare power from the second base position in years past, but his slugging percentage was also the worst of his career, and 2013 marked the fourth consecutive season in which his OPS dipped. Weeks’ struggles, combined with Scooter Gennett’s impressive late-season showing, likely has the two ticketed for some sort of timeshare at second base in 2014.

2013

The 2012 season was a tale of two halves for the Brewers' second baseman. Weeks hit an ugly .199 prior to the All-Star break, but he recovered to hit .261 and post an even .800 OPS the rest of the way. Weeks' .230 batting average is likely to scare away some fantasy owners, but his track record suggests his second half is more the norm. Weeks will be good for at least 80 runs if he can stay healthy, and if he can continue stealing bases after swiping 16 last season, he could jump back into the upper echelon of fantasy second basemen.

2012

Weeks missed a little more than a month during the 2011 season with a sprained ankle, but still hit .269/.350/.468 with 20 homers, nine stolen bases and 77 runs scored. The Brewers experimented with Weeks hitting fifth in the lineup and he could get moved out of the leadoff spot in 2012. Expect more RBI for him next season, but fewer runs scored if the move to the middle of the order comes to fruition.

2011

Weeks stayed healthy for a full season and had the best year of his career in 2010. He hit .269/.366/.464 with 29 home runs and 11 stolen bases while scoring 112 runs. Fantasy owners would have loved to see him steal a few more bases, but those numbers still put him near the top for his position. The Brewers are trying to work out a contract extension with him since this is the final year of his current deal.

2010

Weeks was off to a phenomenal start in 2009, hitting .272/.340/.517 in 37 games before tearing a tendon sheath in his left wrist. He missed the rest of the season and now needs to prove himself once again. He'll start next season as the everyday second baseman and hit at the top of the order. It's possible that he'll sneak by some people during drafts and auctions because of his injury, but he's in a position to be one of the league leaders in runs scored in 2010.

2009

Weeks continued to fail to live up to expectations again in 2008, hitting .234/.342/.398 with 19 stolen bases in 124 games. Particularly concerning should be a drop in walk rate and power from 2007. He'll probably get one more season to tap his potential before the Brewers look elsewhere for a second baseman.

2008

Weeks was on his way to a miserable season when the Brewers sent him to Triple-A Nashville at July's end. After they brought him back up on Aug. 10, he hit .273/.442/.553 with 15 stolen bases without being caught stealing. Weeks may never be able to hit for a high average, but he has displayed an ability to get on base. Don't break the bank for Weeks, but be aware of how strongly he finished last season and be aggressive when bidding on him.

2007

Weeks had his season cut short for the second year in a row due to injury and is starting to have his durability questioned. While he did improve on his previous season, he still didn't quite live up to the expectations of most people. He hit .279 and had a good .363 OBP, but did not show much power at all and sometimes looked overmatched at the plate. His fielding was also a sore spot, committing 22 errors in 92 games at second base. He had surgery during the season to repair a ligament in his wrist, but should be healthy for spring training. The Brewers are hoping the 24 year old will continue to improve in all areas and become one of the top second basemen in the league.

2006

Weeks played well in his rookie campaign, but was hindered by a torn ligament in his left thumb. He'll be starting at second base full-time in 2006 and should improve on his 2005 numbers. He's expected to be at full strength after surgery on his thumb, but watch his status this spring.

2005

Weeks turned in an OK but unspectacular year in his first full season of professional baseball. He then followed it up with a monster season in the Arizona Fall League. Weeks hit just .260 for Double-A Huntsville but had 36 doubles and a .358 OBP. In the Arizona Fall League he hit .380 with a .520 OBP and .737 SLG. That performance may have been enough to get him to Triple-A to start the 2004 season with an eye on the majors possibly later in the year. It's more likely that he'll be a late season call-up and then assume the starting 2B job in 2006.

2004

Weeks was the Brewers' 2003 first-round pick and #2 overall pick in the draft, and has yet to disappoint. He hit .349 in 20 games at low Single-A Beloit and then hit .319 in 20 Arizona Fall League games. If his defense at second base was better then he'd be starting there for the Brewers next season, but he will need a little while to either get better defensively or be moved to the outfield. In any case, it would be hard for the Brewers not to call him up sometime in 2004.

2003
