BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2017 Due to publishing agreements, the 2017 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2017 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2015 Things generally aren't looking up in your career when you're traded for Kelly Johnson, but Jemile Weeks hit in Triple-A and looked surprisingly adequate at shortstop in September. He's useful depth.
2014 Weeks never recovered from 2012's late-season banishment to Triple-A, returning to the level for 2013 and not resurfacing until rosters expanded in September. He demonstrated speed and efficiency on the basepaths in Sacramento, but the rest of his offensive game failed to mature. Weeks spent time at shortstop and in center field in an effort to increase his appeal for a big-league job, elements which may be necessary for the former first-rounder to stick given the complete devolution of his already modest pop. The luster is off his star potential, but Weeks still has the physical ability to carve out a career as a useful player at the highest level. He should have more opportunity to do so in Baltimore after the Orioles acquired him for Jim Johnson.
2013 Je-Green-mile entered the season with a 15 percent collapse rate, the highest mark PECOTA had projected for the regulars in Oakland's lineup, and those one-in-six odds came to fruition as Weeks's bat went into hibernation for the summer. The sophomore slump may have been magnified given his magnificent rookie campaign, which featured a BABIP-fueled offensive spike that was out of line with his minor-league numbers. Weeks showed professionalism when he received an August demotion, acknowledging that he had work to do in order to earn his starting job, and the mature approach and positive attitude could help Weeks regain his status as Oakland's long-term solution at the keystone.
2012 One of the only bright spots on the offensive side of the ball for the Aís, Weeks has the potential to develop into an all-star-caliber player. Taken with the 12th overall pick in the 2008 draft, Weeks saw his ascent to the major leagues slowed by injuries, but he finally made his debut in 2011 at age 24 and was impressive. With bat speed affectionately referred to as Weeksian, thanks to similar near elite bat speed shared by his brother Rickie Weeks, the younger Weeks uses his quick trigger and impressive strength to hit for average with pop to all fields. As he finds more comfort at the level and makes the necessary adjustments against quality pitching, Weeks will show a well-balanced offensive attack, with contact, power, and speed playing a big role in this overall game.
2011 Weeks would be an excellent prospect if he could just stay on the field. If there's some kind of malady that can affect one's lower half, Weeks has had it, with his biggest issue being seemingly chronic hip problems. He's yet to play more that 80 games in a season since becoming the 12th overall pick in the 2008 draft, but when he plays, it's easy to see the bat speed, refined approach, and outstanding athleticism that led to his selection. He will be the leading candidate to start at the keystone in the big leagues in 2012, but only if he can avoid further trips to the infirmary.
2010 Beyond Patterson, the other younger brother of a more famous active veteran (in this case, of Milwaukee's Richie), Jemile Weeks is a unique prospect in that he's a toolsy 23-year-old with the kind of rawness normally associated with a teenager. He needs a lot of repetition to develop his skills, but a steady stream of injuries has limited him to just 99 games in the year and a half since he was drafted. He has a solid approach, some power potential, and loads of speed, but he remains a bit of a mess at second base. The whole package might end up working out better in center field. Fortunately, his bat will be good enough to play anywhere.
2009 The A's first-round pick last June, Weeks often gets compared to his brother Rickie, but strangely enough, only in term of how different the two are. Rickie is thicker and stronger, while Jemile is lanky and much quicker. Like his brother, he can be a bit sloppy at second base, but his athleticism gives him plenty of room for improvement, and he'll always have more range because of his speed. The one thing he does have like his brother is a good approach and tremendous bat speed, and some in the organization think he could move up quickly as a result.

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much PT do you think 2B Jemile Weeks will get in Baltimore and will he produce?
(fishersehorn31 from VA - The 540)
I think that trade was more about dumping $$ than it was getting Weeks. I'm torn on Weeks. It's a crowded scene with Flaherty there and Schoop coming. I like Schoop long-term so I guess I'm down on Weeks as an asset. I think he produced more than he's done so far, but not enough. (Craig Goldstein)
2013-12-10 18:00:00 (link to chat)The Orioles announced Jonathan Schoop will start 2013 in AAA. Does that mean their opening day 2B will be Jemile Weeks, or will they go get someone else?
(Jim from Baltimore)
It is probably going to come down to Ryan Flaherty or Jemile Weeks at second base, although it is possible that the Orioles do make a move to bring in a second baseman. Even if it isn't a big name, there could be an NRI or minor league free agent who comes into camp to compete for the job. (Mike Gianella)
2013-07-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you are trading major league talent for prospects do you want bulk or elite. As example (from A's): Addison Russell or Sonny Gray, Michael Choice, Grant Green and Jemile Weeks.
(hknova from Hong Kong)
I wouldn't trade for Grant Green. Give me the high ceiling guys; players with impact potential. You don't fly flags because of fringy talent. Impact players make impact teams. (Jason Parks)
2013-03-06 20:00:00 (link to chat)Any sleeper 2B for an auction draft this year?
(Cal Guy from Cal)
I still like Emilio Bonifacio, Gordan Beckham, and depending on how deep, Jemile Weeks. (Paul Singman)
2013-01-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)What should be expected of Jemile Weeks and does he get the job to begin with ?
(Spirou from Montreal)
Toughie. I think Scott Sizemore could win the job there. I still believe Weeks could turn into a solid player for the long haul. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-10-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Speaking of Weeks...what's up with Jemile Weeks? Just a bad sophmore slump? I wasn't expecting much, but a nice average and steals.
(captnamerca from Dunedin, FL)
I wasn't a big Jemile Weeks fan coming into the year, but I definitely didn't predict this type of face plant. It could be a bad sophomore slump, or it could be more. One glance at his player card and you'll see his average has some fluctuation year-to-year. His line drive rate is solid this year, so his near 100 point drop in BABIP from last year to this year is a bit unlucky, but his true BABIP line probably lies in the middle. One bright spot in his otherwise dismal year is that he was more efficient stealing bases this year. (Josh Shepardson)
2012-07-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)What to make of Jemile Weeks season ? He was going to be my sleeper super stud this year.
(19braves77 from Pensacola)
Weeks is going through a bit of a sophomore slump, and he looks like he's beating the ball into the ground (48.8 GB%), which is leading to a weak .248 BABIP, especially since it's eroding his line-drive rate from last season's excellent 23.3% to 19.6% (about league average). Pitchers are working him better than they did last season, and it will be on Weeks to make the adjustment in return. He's slugging .277 at home, which isn't doing him any favors, either. (Michael Street)
2012-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jemile Weeks as a top 5 second baseman in 2012, agree or disagree?
(JP from Oakland)
Disagree. Cano, Pedroia, Kinsler, Weeks, Phillips, Zobrist (if we're talking fantasy), Kendrick etc. He's more like in the Neil Walker tier. (Sam Miller)
2012-02-02 15:00:00 (link to chat)I need to choose between Dustin Ackley, Jason Kipnis and Jemile Weeks as a long-term option at 2B in my Strat-o-matic league. Which of these guys has the most long-term value? I'm worried about Kipnis and/or Ackley moving to the outfield down the road.
(Danny from NC)
I'd go with Ackley, he appears to be the most complete player of the three, and as best I can tell the Mariners seem committed to him at 2B. He's a much greater asset there than he would be in an outfield corner. (Cory Schwartz)
2012-01-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Jemile Weeks "healthy" season and his future/upside?
(stevenpsu78 from York, Pa)
I really like Weeks. He has the type of bat speed you can't teach. If he is healthy (and can stay that way), he could develop into one of the best 2B in the league. (Jason Parks)
2012-01-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is the better bet long-term at 2B: Dustin Ackley, Jemile Weeks or Jason Kipnis?
(Desmond from Jersey)
I'd gladly take any of the above and smile the grandest of smiles. Forced to rank, I'd go: Ackley, Kipnis, Weeks. (Jason Parks)
2012-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)I am in a pseudo-dynasty format where we keep players for as long as we would like but there are salaries attached (and thus theoretically forcing some turnover in the player pool). I have an offer right now on the table of Adrian Gonzalez for Nelson Cruz, Jemile Weeks and Jordan Walden. My team is stacked at every position but 1B (thanks to Ryan Howard's decline/health issues). This trade would leave a hole at my MI position, but I feel confident I can pick up a low-end guy to fill in for Cruz and Weeks. Is this a fair deal? Salaries of Gonzo and the trio I would be sending over are essentially a wash.
(Travis from St Louis)
It sounds like you're looking to win it all this season, in which case it is perfectly reasonable to deal away a young, presumably cost effective guy like Weeks or Walden. It does sound like a steep price to pay, though (I'm assuming this is the usual 5x5 -- is it mixed or AL-only?), and it will definitely matter what kind of guys you think you can replace Cruz and Weeks with. I'd see if I could negotiate it down. (Derek Carty)
2012-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)SP keepers! The stats are the usual stats (ERA, K, WHIP, wins, etc.) The guys are: James Shields, Josh Beckett, CJ Wilson, Ervin Santana. Do I have them in the right order? (Might keep 2, but probably only 1 while hoarding young 2Bs like Jemile Weeks & Dustin Ackley.) Thanks!
(David R. from Somewhere, USA)
Yes, you do have them in the right order, though I think there's a drop-off from Beckett to Wilson and that Beckett is a bit underrated this year. (Derek Carty)
2011-12-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)What would you estimate for the number of times out of 100 the threesome of Dee Gordon, Jemile Weeks, and Jose Altuve has more productive careers than the threesome of Ruben Tejada, Johnny Giavotella, and Kyle Seager?
(goiter6 from MN)
98. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-11-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)How do you evaluate the following young 2B in terms of long-term fantasy value?: Jemile Weeks, Jason Kipnis, Dustin Ackley.
(Steve from Pitt)
Kipnis, Weeks, Ackley (Derek Carty)
2011-10-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Jemile Weeks "healthy" season and going forward?
(stevenpsu78 from York PA)
All he needed was to stay on the field to start showing his potential. I'm quite optimistic. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-10-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)What were your thoughts on Jemile Weeks as a prospect and now. Finally had a pretty healthy year.
(steve from rain)
I think he has a chance to be very good. Love the Weeksian bat speed. You can't teach what he has. (Jason Parks)
2011-08-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)What would you do with the A's? Trevor Cahill has been terrible for the past few months. Brett Anderson is likely out for most of next season. Kurt Suzuki has regressed badly at the plate. Their free agent acquisitions didn't help them contend this season and they didn't deal them at the deadline, so there's no space to let prospects audition. Then again, their prospects (Chris Carter, Michael Taylor, Adrian Cardenas, Michael Choice, and Grant Green) all have some major flaws.
(Tom from Madison)
Besides moving to a new stadium somewhere? Hereís what Beane said in Tyler Kepnerís piece yesterday: ďSometimes, youíre relegated to buying that lottery ticket. Anybody will tell you that the lottery is not a great way to invest your money. But sometimes, you donít have a lot of options.Ē Post-Moneyball Beane sounds more and more like post-Super-System Doyle Brunson every day. My advice, though, would be to find a bopper somewhere, since thereís no one in the system ready to hit in the middle of the order. Cahill, McCarthy and Gonzalez should be good enough to make you competitive even with Anderson hurt. Sign Willingham to a reasonable 2-year deal if you can, but donít go longer than that. Cross your fingers that Jemile Weeks and Brandon Allen can be building blocks. But mostly, find a bopper. Crazy thought: find out how much of Adam Dunnís contract Kenny Williams would be willing to eat.

this offseason. (Ken Funck)
2011-07-13 12:30:00 (link to chat)With the A's season is over, what offensive players should be brought back? The only ones I definitely bring back are Jemile Weeks and Scott Sizemore.
(Tom from Madison)
Well, Kurt Suzuki isn't going anywhere, Chris Carter will be worth playing, and maybe Daric Barton will have hit his way back to the majors by then. Other than that--I was going to say Cliff Pennington (who was actually Oakland's most valuable player last season, according to WARP), though it would be better if the A's could arrange to bring back his glove and substitute someone else's bat. However, I've just noticed that FRAA seems to hate him this season as much as it loved him in 2010. Anyone noticed any big change in Pennington's play in the field? (Ben Lindbergh)
2011-06-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on young Jemile Weeks? And any word on Brett Anderson - is this a surgery thing or will he be making his annual visit to land of the lost?
(Jquinton82 from NY)
As good a player as Mark Ellis has been at times, it was really past time to look elsewhere. Weeks isn't going to make anyone forget Ellis on the fielding job (how is it he never won a Gold Glove?)and offensively I don't know that he's going to be anything special, but he should be closer to being a contributor with the bat than Ellis has been in most years. (Steven Goldman)
2011-06-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Lawrie, Jennings, Ackley... Are you high on any prospects likely to be called up soon?
(Andrew from Las Vegas)
Yup, I like all three. You can also keep an eye on guys like Mike Moustakas, Jemile Weeks, Yonder Alonso, Anthony Rizzo, Lonnie Chisenhall, and a number of others. (Derek Carty)
2011-05-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Assuming he can stay healthy, when would you call up Jemile Weeks to replace Mark Ellis at second base?
(Tom from Madison)
After I traded Ellis on July 31. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-08-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Last time I asked about Adrian Cardenas and you weren't too high on him. Now you're skeptical about Chris Carter. Are there any position players in the A's minors you are excited about?
(Dave from Chicago)
From High-A and above, I'm hopeful about Brett Wallace, I like Jemile Weeks and Corey Brown, and I haven't given up on Cunningham or Buck. Josh Horton will be in the shortstop picture at some point, which is worth remembering. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-07-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey KG! Jemile Weeks seems to be progressing nicely this season. What is his ceiling and timetable? Do you think he sticks at 2B?
(ashitaka from long beach, ca)
I think he sticks at second, he's actually been better than expected there, and the athleticism is outstanding. There's star possibility there as an absolutely ideal No. 2 hitter. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think Adrian Cardenas's ultimate position will be with the A's? The A's seem to love Ellis's glove and then they have Jemile Weeks waiting in the wings. Can Cardenas be a passable shortstop or hit enough to play third?
(Dave from Chicago)
I really worry that Cardenas is sort of the infield variant on an outfield tweener; his bat won't play at third, he can't play shortstop well enough to stick there, and while he's an interesting enough second-base prospect as such things go, Weeks has much more upside, and Ellis is locked in through 2010 with an affordable option for 2011. Even if Cardenas starts hitting at Sacramento, there's reason to wonder if he even has a window of opportunity. (Christina Kahrl)
