Second baseman Rickie Weeks told me his sprained left knee is improving but he limited his work today to taking grounders. Manager Ned Yost said Weeks might not be ready to return to action when eligible to come off the DL Sunday but that it shouldn't be long afterward.
Weeks (knee) will be activated from the 15-day DL prior to Sunday's series finale against the Orioles, the Associated Press reports.
Per Yahoo sports:
2B Rickie Weeks (sprained left knee) is eligible to come off the disabled list Sunday and is working out with the club. Manager Ned Yost said Weeks is getting closer to being ready to play but didn't know if he'd be ready by Sunday
This would be great if he only misses the minimum 15 days!! It sounded like he could miss a month or so a couple weeks ago.
