I know. The worst part is that you have to suspect the wrist injury could seriously affect his ability to hit for power next year.
Rickie's 22-year old brother, Jemile (a 2B in the Oakland minor league system and the 12th overall pick last year), is also developing a history of injuries.
He had "an injury-marred 2007 season" as a sophomore in college. Then last year, he suffered a season-ending hip injury 19 games into his first minor league season.
I'm beginning doubt that Rickie Weeks will ever stay healthy long enough to get 500 AB in a season.
