Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks will miss the remainder of the 2013 season as he will undergo surgery on his injured left hamstring, reports Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Weeks suffered the injury in the eighth inning of Wednesday’s game against the Giants.

It’s been a rough year for Weeks. His 2013 season ends with a career-low .663 OPS. His individual slash line stats (.209/.306/.357) fell to career-lows as well.

The Brewers called up Scooter Gennett to fill the vacant spot on the roster. In 57 trips to the plate this season, he has posted a .690 OPS. He wasn’t faring much better with Triple-A Nashville — in 349 PA, he had a .697 OPS.

      That’s the only thing I’ve ever seen you write that makes any kind of sense.

        Sandra Bullock is worth in excess of $200 million dollars…just to prove to you that not everything in life makes sense.

    Like Ricky’s hammy, I’m torn. Class act whose struggled the last couple of yrs, hope he can come back and be productive. On the other hand, hopefully he won’t get enough ABs to fully vest his absurb contract for 2015, GO BREW CREW!
