Weeks strains hamstring, likely headed to DL

SAN DIEGO -- Padres second baseman Jemile Weeks suffered a strained right hamstring and had to exit Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Mets at Petco Park.

Weeks, who is filling in for the injured Cory Spangenberg (quad), bunted a ball toward first when sacrificing Derek Norris to second in the seventh inning.

It appeared Weeks was going to reach first with no one covering the bag, but his right leg revolted about three-quarters of the way down the line. Weeks was unable to rise and was tagged out by Bartolo Colon.

"It looks like [Weeks] is going on the DL," Padres manager Andy Green said. "It looks like he got it pretty good."
