MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers have placed second baseman Rickie Weeks on the 15-day disabled list with a severe left ankle sprain.

Manager Ron Roenicke says Weeks may be out two to six weeks after injuring his left ankle during Wednesday night's game against the Cubs.

Weeks beat out a throw in the second inning from Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro, but took a long stride, twisting the ankle awkwardly while touching the base. He stumbled to the ground.

Weeks is hitting .272 with 19 homers and 43 RBIs in 104 games.

INF Eric Farris was recalled from Triple-A Nashville to take Weeks' place on the roster.
