Weeks back after injury, but 2B open for Brewers


Rickie Weeks is back with his Milwaukee Brewers teammates after a left hamstring injury knocked him out in August last season.
But the veteran is no longer the guaranteed starter at second base.
Scooter Gennett hit .324 and impressed his bosses down the stretch last season in place of Weeks. Manager Ron Roenicke says he's not sure which way to go yet at second.
Weeks arrived Wednesday, two days before the mandatory reporting date for position players. Gennett says Weeks helped him get comfortable last year as a rookie, and that he's the type of veteran who plays the game the right way.
Weeks is a career .247 hitter who's usually a lock for 20 home runs.
