Athletics calling up Jemile Weeks

Mychael Urban of reports that the Athletics are calling up prospect second baseman Jemile Weeks from Triple-A Sacramento.

It's time. Mark Ellis left Monday's game with a hamstring injury, so it's assumed that he will land on the disabled list. The A's still need to clear a spot on the 40-man roster, but they can move Dallas Braden to the 60-day disabled list. Weeks, 24, entered Monday's action batting .321/.414/.446 with three homers, 22 RBI and nine stolen bases over his first 44 games with Triple-A Sacramento this season. He should be owned in AL-only leagues from the outset.
