Rickie Weeks

Rickie Weeks is best known for his days with the Milwaukee Brewers. From 2005 through 2014, Weeks appeared in 1135 games for the Brew Crew, batting .249/.347/.425. Weeks was consistently a power-speed threat in the line-up, as he had a .176 isolated slugging percentage and stole double-digit bases on six different occasions. Overall, he had a 108 wRC+ for Milwaukee.

Weeks’ tenure with the Brewers came to an end after the 2014 season. Over the next three seasons, the second baseman would bounce around from team to team. In 2015, he had a brief stint with the Seattle Mariners, where he transitioned from second base to left field. This brings us to 2016, Weeks’ lone season with the Diamondbacks.

Weeks provided a solid bench bat. In 205 plate appearances, Weeks slashed .239/.327/.450 with nine home runs. Weeks drew walks at a solid 9.8% rate with an isolated slugging percentage above .200 at .211. When Weeks played the field, he mostly played left field, but struggled defensively. He was worth -7 defensive runs saved and -8 outs above average in just 215.2 innings.

However, these were the only games Weeks would appear in for the D-Backs. After that, he signed a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Rays, where he struggled as a 1B/DH, and retired following the season.
