Rickie Weeks has torn hamstring
SEATTLE -- Milwaukee second baseman Rickie Weeks will miss the rest of the season with a torn left hamstring.
The Brewers announced the results of an MRI exam on Friday. Weeks was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday and flew from San Francisco to Milwaukee to have the test.
Weeks' injury is another hit in a miserable season for the Brewers. Weeks injured his hamstring when he stumbled over his bat and fell trying to beat out an infield grounder in the eighth inning of Milwaukee's 6-1 win Wednesday night.
Weeks was batting .209 with 10 home runs and 24 RBIs this season. He is the fourth Milwaukee player -- but first non-pitcher -- to go on the disabled list with a hamstring injury this year.
