From Yahoo:

I think it's safe to drop him becuase he wont be 100% even if he does come back for the last 2 weeks of the season. I have Blake and Liriano on the DL so Weeks was just a waste. I'd say everyone should just drop him IMOP.

HE'S DONE FOR GOOD. CBS SPORTSLINE:

News:
Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is scheduled to have season-ending surgery on his right wrist next week. Weeks has missed nine games since getting hurt while wagging a bat in the dugout July 25. He said he considered playing through the injury, which causes a tendon to snap out of place. "It wasn't getting any better," Weeks said Wednesday before Milwaukee's game against the Chicago Cubs. "The best situation for me right now is to go ahead and get it done." Dr. Don Sheridan will examine Weeks on Monday in Phoenix and perform the surgery Tuesday or Wednesday, the team said.

Analysis: Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said Weeks should be fully recovered in a couple of months, in plenty of time to be ready for the 2007 season. Still, Melvin said the missed time will affect the development of the second-year player, the Brewers' top draft pick in 2003. "The only consideration I had is if you stay in the pennant race, you always need a pinch-runner in September, and he could have been that guy," Melvin said. "But when it got down to it, to waste that time, with him doing nothing now, it just didn't make sense." Weeks, the team's leadoff hitter, was batting .279 with eight home runs and 34 RBIs in 95 games. Last season, he fought through a nagging left thumb injury and hit .239 with 13 homers and 42 RBI. It's safe to drop Weeks in non-keeper leagues
