The Brewers have avoided arbitration by reaching an extension with second baseman Rickie Weeks, according to FOXSports.com. The deal is reported at a five year deal worth 50 million dollars. The Brewers do have the option to void the fifth year of the contract if he is not an everyday player by then.
After five injury-plagued seasons, Weeks stayed healthy in 2010 and played 160 games. He batted .269 with 83 RBIs and 29 home runs.
The Brewers made a great decision in signing Weeks, 28, to this extension. He is entering his prime and will be locked up through his best years.
