Brewers’ Weeks out with sprained finger
Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is out of Saturday’s lineup
against the Houston Astros after spraining his left pinkie finger
sliding into second base on a steal Friday.
Weeks was hurt in the sixth. He scored later in the inning, but
did not return to the field in the seventh and was replaced by
veteran infielder Craig Counsell.
Counsell is also replacing him in Saturday night’s game against
Weeks says he plans to return Sunday and manager Ron Roenicke
says Weeks is available as a pinch hitter. Weeks is hitting .269
with four homers and seven RBIs in 19 games this season.
