Four of Gennett's last 10 games have seen him notch multiple hits. The 26-year-old second baseman is slashing .275/.338/.451 with seven homers and 20 RBI over 193 at-bats.

Scooter Gennett clubbed his sixth home run of the season in a losing effort against the Dodgers on Sunday.

His first-inning blast off Kenta Maeda got the Brewers started with a bang, but that would wind up being the entire extent of their offense in the contest. Gennett finished the afternoon 1-for-4, raising his season slash to .266/.333/.429 to go along with six homers and 18 RBI.
Jun 19 - 9:57 PM

Scooter Gennett went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Monday's loss to the Giants.

Gennett's fourth-inning RBI double drew the Brew Crew to within 4-3. They would tie proceedings at 4-4 in the sixth inning, but a late deluge of opposition runs led to an eventual 11-5 loss. For the season, the 26-year-old second baseman is slashing .265/.333/.426 with five homers and 15 RBI over 162 at-bats. There is little in his game that translates well for fantasy purposes.
Jun 14 - 2:48 AM

Scooter Gennett went 2-for-4 and drove in three of the Brewers' four runs Wednesday against the A's.

The Brewers could be playing hotter hands Aaron Hill at second and Hernan Perez at third, but Gennett has started five games in a row and he got the job done tonight, upping his season RBI total from nine to 12. He's hitting just .208/.273/.300 in his last 32 games, and he'll be in serious danger of losing his job once the Brewers call up Orlando Arcia to play shortstop.
Jun 8 - 11:07 PM

He'll get a day off against lefty John Lamb. The Brewers are going with Aaron Hill at second base and Hernan Perez at third base.

May 8 - 11:31 AM

The Brewers expect Scooter Gennett (oblique) to miss three weeks of action.

Gennett was placed on the disabled list Thursday with a strained right oblique. The injury didn't require an MRI, though, as the club believes the strain is a slight one. "It's not a bad (injury)," manager Craig Counsell said. "They didn't do an MRI. It wasn't deemed serious enough for that. It's still a DL (situation), though. These things are a little tricky so we'll go with it. He's not playing for at least two weeks, then we'll see." Yadiel Rivera has made two straight starts at second base with Gennett out, but Colin Walsh and Hernan Perez should see some time there, as well.

Gennett suffered the injury during batting practice Tuesday on a cold evening at Wrigley Field. He could be out for a month. It's an especially tough blow because the second baseman was off to a great start this season, sporting an .877 OPS and four home runs in 18 games. Yadiel Rivera, Colin Walsh, and Hernan Perez will fill in at second base.

Scooter Gennett was scratched from the Brewers' lineup Tuesday due to right oblique tightness.

The change happened just before first pitch at Wrigley Field, after Gennett's oblique tightened up during batting practice.

Yadiel Rivera is starting at second on Tuesday night against the Cubs.
