Rickie Weeks

From mlb.com:
Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks left Tuesday's game against the Phillies complaining of dizziness after he was clipped by shortstop J.J. Hardy on a funky play near second base.

It appeared that Weeks was hit in the jaw by Hardy's shoulder as both players converged on Chase Utley's first-inning infield single. Hardy ranged past first base and scooped up the baseball as Weeks moved in the opposite direction, and both players tumbled to the dirt.

Weeks finished the inning -- Philadelphia batted around against Brewers starter Manny Parra and scored four runs -- but was replaced in the bottom of the second inning by Casey McGehee. It's been a tough week for Weeks, who was struck on the left side of his jaw last week by a fastball from Reds right-hander Edinson Volquez.


Anyone see the play or hear anything more? Hopefully this isn't a concussion. Weeks actually had a respectable BA going so far.

yea the SS came across into 2b territory cuz he was covering for a steal on a slow grounder and they ran into eachother... looked like hardy got the worst of it but i guess not, it wasnt too bad looking... they didnt bump heads i didnt think... i wouldnt be overly worried... maybe have tomorrow off, but i doubt anything worse than that

Man, someone really has it in for him.

He starts off pretty well at the plate this year, and gets hurt again. Every year. Yet I can't help putting him on my teams.

Hopefully it's no big deal. Good guy, works hard, just tough luck.
