Rickie Weeks is back up. Graffinino is out for the year.

Is he going to start?

They wouldn't call him back up unless they are going to play him. I wonder if he's over that wrist injury.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

He went 10-22 in his minor league stint so hopefully he is over it.

I scooped him up just in case.

He was stinking so bad before he was sent down I'd be kind of surprised if he turned things around that quickly. I can hope, but he'll be staying on my bench until he shows something good for a few games in a row. I can't help thinking it's gonna take a while. :-o

Per Rotoworld:

Brewers recalled 2B Rickie Weeks from Triple-A Nashville. Weeks' demotion lasted only a week because of Tony Graffanino's season-ending knee injury. After going 10-for-22 (.455) in six games at Nasvhille, Weeks figures to reclaim his starting job at second base. If Weeks is over ongoing wrist problems, he could have plenty of value down the stretch.

First two games back:

0-2 with 4 BBs, 1 SB, 2 runs
1-4 with 1 BB, 1 SB, 2 runs.

BA still abysmal, now at .211. If you need SBs, he's an option but your BA is going to take a hit.
