Red Sox purchased the contract of INF Jemile Weeks from Triple-A Pawtucket.

He'll provide additional infield depth for the Red Sox while Dustin Pedroia is on the disabled list. The 28-year-old former top prospect is hitting just .207/.307/.310 with one homer and five RBI in 174 at-bats at Triple-A Pawtucket this season.
Jul 26 - 7:32 PM

Red Sox sent INF Jemile Weeks outright to Triple-A Pawtucket.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster. Weeks, who was acquired from the Orioles in August, hit .308 (8-for-26) with three doubles and three RBI in 14 games with the Red Sox down the stretch. He turns 28 in January and is mostly organizational depth at this point.

Jemile Weeks went 2-for-3 with two doubles and scored a pair of runs as the Red Sox defeated the Royals 4-2 on Friday in Kansas City.

Weeks, who was acquired from the Orioles in a waiver deadline deal, is hitting .286/.333/.464 in his limited time with the Red Sox. He should see regular action over the season's final couple of weeks and could be worth using as a middle infield option in deeper mixed leagues.

Red Sox acquired INFs Jemile Weeks and Ivan DeJesus Jr. from the Orioles for INFs Michael Almanzar and Kelly Johnson.

Weeks hasn't lived up to the hype that made him a first-round pick in 2008, but he's worth the flier for Boston. The 27-year-old had registered a promising .302/.411/.422 batting line with 10 stolen bases in 70 games this season at three different levels of the Orioles' minor league system. He can play all over the diamond defensively.

Orioles optioned INF Jemile Weeks to Triple-A Norfolk.

Weeks went 3-for-11 (.273) with two runs scored in his 10-day stay with the major league club. The 27-year-old infielder should get another shot later this summer.

Orioles recalled INF Jemile Weeks from Triple-A Norfolk.

The 27-year-old infielder takes the place of T.J. McFarland on the active roster. He'll provide extra depth on the infield while Chris Davis is sidelined. Weeks was off to a fine start with the Tides, slashing .296/.451/.481 with seven RBI, four steals and a 16/10 BB/K ratio in his first 17 games.

Jemile Weeks was sent back to Triple-A Norfolk.

Weeks was flown to New York as insurance in case David Lough needed to be placed on the 15-day disabled list with a concussion, but Lough passed all of his concussion tests and will remain on the O's active roster.

Jemile Weeks is meeting up with the Orioles in New York.

The Orioles are expected to officially add him to the 25-man roster before Wednesday's series-finale against the Yankees. No word on a corresponding roster move. Weeks probably won't get enough playing time to produce worthwhile value in standard fantasy leagues.

Orioles optioned INF Jemile Weeks to Triple-A Norfolk.

Weeks lost a position battle to Jonathan Schoop this summer by batting .171/.300/.195. The primary return in the Jim Johnson trade, Weeks is likely just organizational depth for the O's.
Sat, Mar 29, 2014 05:33:00 PM

Jemile Weeks went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Sunday, leaving him with a .148 average this spring.

Weeks is being outplayed by Ryan Flaherty and Jonathan Schoop in the second base competition, so it doesn't look like he'll make the Orioles even if Manny Machado lands on the DL.
Sun, Mar 16, 2014 04:32:00 PM

Jemile Weeks doubled, walked, stole a base and scored twice as the Orioles' leadoff hitter Friday.

Ryan Flaherty is the favorite to start at second base for the Orioles, but Weeks has a shot if he gets on base this spring. While the plan appears to be for Nick Markakis to lead off, Weeks would be a speedier alternative if he can secure a starting job.

Orioles acquired 2B Jemile Weeks and a player to be named later from the Athletics in exchange for RHP Jim Johnson.

Weeks had a promising rookie season but was way down the A's depth chart after batting just .219/.301/.300 the last two years. He lands in a good spot in Baltimore, as they're not set at the second base position. At best, though, he'll likely have to beat out a host of competitors for the job.

Athletics recalled INF Jemile Weeks from Triple-A Sacramento.

The 26-year-old former top prospect was hitting .271/.376/.369 with four homers, 40 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 130 games at Triple-A. He's split his time there between shortstop, second base and the outfield, and is likely to be used in a utility role with the A's.
Sun, Sep 1, 2013 11:43:00 AM

Jemile Weeks played center field for the first time in his career this past Saturday at Triple-A Sacramento.

The A's aren't fully committed to changing his position yet, but they're clearly open to experimenting. Weeks was drafted as a second baseman (12th overall) in 2008 and has only played second base at the major league level. He's batting .264/.382/.366 this year in Triple-A.
