NEW YORK (Reuters) - Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is to undergo surgery on a wrist injury and will not play again this season, the team said on Monday.
Weeks sustained the injury during a first-inning strikeout on Sunday in St. Louis and will have surgery this week to repair a torn sheath that surrounds a tendon in his left wrist, the Brewers said on their website (milwaukee.brewers.mlb.com).
The surgery will sideline Weeks for at least four to six months, said general manager Doug Melvin. He was batting .272 with nine homers and 24 RBIs.
