Jemile Weeks accepts outright minor-league assignment from Boston Red Sox

Second baseman Jemile Weeks has accepted his outright minor-league assignment from the Boston Red Sox and will report to Triple-A Pawtucket, according to a Tweet by MLB Daily Dish's Chris Cotillo.

Jemile, the younger brother of Mariners infielder Rickie Weeks, is in his second season in the Red Sox organization, having been acquired from Baltimore last August in the deal that sent Kelly Johnson to the Orioles.

Weeks had been designated for assignment on July 29 when the Red Sox activated infielder Josh Rutledge, who was acquired from the Angels in the deal that sent Shane Victorino out west. He has spent most of this season with the PawSox, hitting .203 in 53 games there, and went 3-for-9 with one RBI in three games in the majors after being called up on July 26.
