Brewers 2B Weeks has surgery on torn hamstring
Weeks was hitting .209 when he went on disabled list
MILWAUKEE — Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks had surgery Thursday to repair his torn left hamstring.
Weeks hurt his leg on Aug. 7 when he stumbled over his bat and fell while trying to beat out a grounder in the eighth inning of Milwaukee’s 6-1 win over the Giants in San Francisco.
General manager Doug Melvin says Jose Reyes and Angel Pagan had the same surgery, and Weeks should be able to recover.
Weeks hit .209 with 10 home runs and 24 RBIs in 104 games this season.
