Weeks placed on DL, Farris up

The Brewers have just officially placed second baseman Rickie Weeks on the 15-day disabled list with a severe left ankle sprain. They called-up Triple-A Nashville second baseman Eric Farris, who will wear N0. 33.

For those wondering how the Weeks injury will impact the Brewers’ offense, one signal came Thursday morning, when Craig Counsell, with no hits in his last 38 at-bats and 48 days, was penciled into the starting lineup.

Counsell will man second base and bat eighth against the Cubs. Third baseman Casey McGehee is back in the five-hole with Weeks out.

Here’s the lineup as Milwaukee aims for a three-game sweep:

Corey Hart RF
Nyjer Morgan RF
Ryan Braun LF
Prince Fielder 1B
Casey McGehee 3B
Yuniesky Betancourt SS
Jonathan Lucroy C
Craig Counsell SS
Shaun Marcum RHP
