PHOENIX -- Coming off hamstring surgery, Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is expected to be "full go" when he reports for Spring Training this week, manager Ron Roenicke said.

That is good news for Weeks, who is due $11 million in the final season of his contract but will have to wrestle playing time away from 23-year-old Scooter Gennett. Gennett batted .324 in 230 plate appearances last season, mostly after Weeks underwent surgery on Aug. 15 for a torn left hamstring.

"He's doing really well," Roenicke said of Weeks, who did not attend the Brewers' fanfest in January because he was on his honeymoon.

Brewers position players are required to report to Phoenix by Friday, and the team's first full-squad workout is Saturday. So far, left-hander Tom Gorzelanny is the only player limited by a physical issue. Gorzelanny underwent minor shoulder surgery in December and, barring a setback, could still be ready by Opening Day.

"This has really been good news, that we come in and Tom is the only one that's restricted right now," Roenicke said.
