Rickie Darnell Weeks is a Major League Baseball second baseman for Milwaukee Brewers.

Weeks bats and throws right-handed. A potential five-tool player, Weeks was considered a top prospect throughout college, winning the Dick Howser Trophy as the national collegiate player of the year, and excelled through the minor leagues. He has shown promise in three of the five tools: speed, power, and throwing arm. Although Weeks has not yet shown he can consistently hit for average and field his position well, he played much of the 2005 season with a thumb injury. In his first full MLB season in 2005, Weeks had a batting average of .239 to go with 13 home runs and 15 stolen bases in 96 games. These HR/SB number are consistent with his minor league totals of 21 home runs and 24 stolen bases. In 2006, Weeks hit .279 with 8 home runs, 34 RBIs, and 19 stolen bases in 95 games.
