Rickie WeeksBy C. Trent Rosecrans

More good news for the Brewers -- who pretty much sealed up the National League Central will last night's win in St. Louis -- as second baseman Rickie Weeks could be activated this weekend, manager Ron Roenicke told reporters before Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.

Weeks, who has been out with a severely sprained ankle since July 27, will return as a pinch-hitter at first with just short stints in the infield, hoping to get him ready for the postseason.

"We wouldn't be activating him to play second base a lot, we would easy him in," Roenicke said (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel). "We haven't gotten there yet."

The timing is good, as Jerry Hairston Jr., Weeks' main replacement, left Monday's game with neck stiffness and was out of the lineup on Tuesday.

Weeks is hitting .272/.346/.478 with 19 homers and 43 RBI in 104 games this season.

Weeks has yet to run the bases, but had what Roenicke deemed "a really good day" in Monday's workout.
