A's recall Jemile Weeks

The A's recalled second baseman Jemile Weeks, first baseman Daric Barton and right-handed reliever Jesse Chavez from Triple-A Sacramento.

Weeks, sent down Aug. 21, worked on getting his bat angle higher to help him be quicker through the hitting zone.

He said the demotion, though unwanted, helped him get right mentally.

"I'm definitely a confident player, but there were times at the plate where I wasn't committed to what I was doing," he said.

Melvin said Weeks could draw some starts at second base but is a pinch-running or pinch-hitting option.
