Considering how many other players have been bitten by injuries in Brewers camp, you can’t blame the club for playing it very safe with second baseman Rickie Weeks.
Weeks has been getting treatment for a tight groin and played only two innings Thursday after taking the previous two days off. Manager Ron Roenicke said there was no setback, but he was just being cautious.
“He’s fine, and Rickie says, ‘No problem,’ but the trainer said if you can get him out early, let’s get him out early,” Roenicke said. “He’s fine. I don’t want any more injuries. … Rickie is not going to play easy. So if I tell Rickie to go out there and, hey, just don’t run hard, it’s not going to happen.”
Weeks will probably be off Friday before playing again Saturday against the D-backs, Roenicke said.
