Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks tried to talk his way back into the lineup Monday, but manager Ron Roenicke and trainer Dan Wright overruled him.

It sounds as if Weeks has a good chance of returning Tuesday after missing three games with a badly bruised left hand, the result of being hit by a pitch Friday night.

"He probably wanted to play today but he's not 100%," said Roenicke. "He may not be 100% tomorrow, but he's going to be pretty close. I thought one more day, just talking with Dan Wright, is a better way to do it."
