Scooter Gennett (hand) is expected to be activated from the disabled list when first eligible.

Gennett is dealing with a laceration on his left hand, an injury that occurred when he cut himself in the shower on Sunday. Hector Gomez and Elian Herrera will fill in at second base during his absence.
Apr 21 - 7:07 PM

Brewers placed INF Scooter Gennett on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 20, with a left hand laceration.

Gennett needed stitches after cutting his hand in the shower on Sunday and will now get some extended rest. Hector Gomez and Elian Herrera will fill in at second base during his absence.
Apr 21 - 1:02 PM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Monday that it's possible Scooter Gennett (hand) could need a disabled list stint if his injury lingers.

Gennett cut his hand in the shower after Sunday's game and needed stitches. The Brewers figure to give him a few days to see how the hand responds before making a decision. Hector Gomez is filling in at second base Monday and will continue to do so for as long as Gennett is sidelined.
Apr 20 - 4:57 PM

Scooter Gennett cut his hand in the shower after Sunday's game and will miss some time.

Could things be going any worse for the Brew Crew? Gennett needed stitches for the gash and it's not clear when he might be ready to return to the starting lineup. Hector Gomez is likely to fill in at second base.
Apr 20 - 3:38 PM

Scooter Gennett remained out of the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

Gennett has now been benched in two straight after being ejected Friday when he slammed his bat down following a check-swing strike three call. He should be back in there on Monday. Hector Gomez is getting a second straight start at second base. Jonathan Lucroy is also sitting, with Martin Maldonado handling the catching duties. Jean Segura has been moved up to the No. 2 spot.

Scooter Gennett is not in the Brewers starting lineup on Saturday.

Hector Gomez is drawing the start in his absence. The 24-year-old is off to a very slow start at the plate, hitting .077 (1-for-13) with a 6/0 K/BB ratio through his first four games. Perhaps a day off to clear his head would do some good.
Apr 11 - 3:47 PM

Scooter Gennett was ejected from Friday's contest against the Pirates after slamming his bat down in disgust after he disagreed with a check-swing strike.

Frustration boiled over for the 24-year-old infielder and put the Brewers in a bit of a bind with all of their reserve infielders already used. Carlos Gomez was forced to play second base, which could give him some crazy eligibility in leagues where it only takes one game to qualify.
Apr 10 - 11:14 PM

Scooter Gennett went 2-for-3 and drove home three runs on Friday, leading the Brewers to a 6-3 victory over the Indians in Cactus League play.

Gennett got the Brewers on the board in the second inning with an RBI double off Carlos Carrasco, and he would add on a two-run single the following frame. The 24-year-old has had a nice spring, hitting .317 (20-for-63) with a homer and eight RBI, though a troublesome 12/0 K/BB ratio will likely lead to him hitting closer to the bottom of the lineup than the leadoff slot he was competing for.
Apr 3 - 7:28 PM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Friday that he will wait until after Monday's off day to announce his leadoff hitter.

The most likely scenario is that Scooter Gennett gets the job while Carlos Gomez is moved down into a run-producing spot. The issue holding things up is whether Roenicke and company can trust Gennett enough against left-handed pitching to produce in that role. If he is indeed named the leadoff hitter, it will be a nice boost to his overall fantasy value.
Mar 27 - 11:35 PM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Tuesday that he hasn’t decided whether Scooter Gennett or Carlos Gomez will bat leadoff.

"I still go back and forth on that," Roenicke said. "Scooter has been doing a pretty good job at it. I'd like to at least have a couple guys doing it a few times down here, so I don't go Scooter all spring and then Opening Day go 'Gomey.' Roenicke would surely prefer to have Gennett hit first and Gomez in a run-producing spot. However, the skipper prefers to keep the same player hitting leadoff versus righties and lefties, and Gennett needs to improve against southpaws. Gennett looks pegged for seventh in the order if he doesn’t bat leadoff, so quite a bit of his fantasy value rides on the decision.
Mar 17 - 10:55 PM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Monday that Scooter Gennett will be given a chance to play against left-handed pitching next season.

He platooned with Rickie Weeks in 2014, but Weeks is a free agent and the Brewers don't have another viable platoon mate on the roster. Gennett has just 10 hits in 78 career at-bats versus lefties with the big club but had a slightly more respectable .259/.294/.349 slash line against southpaws in the minors.

Scooter Gennett doubled and drove home three runs on Friday, powering the Brewers to a 6-2 victory over the Cardinals.

Gennett got the scoring started with a two-run single in the third inning and tacked on an RBI double in the fifth. The diminutive second baseman finished the afternoon 2-for-4 and is now hitting a terrific .298/.330/.455 with 50 RBI on the season.

Scooter Gennett hit an RBI double in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Padres.

The Brew Crew's bats were mostly held down by the Padres' pitching staff. Gennett hit a ground rule double off of Padres starter Tyson Ross in the fourth inning to score Jonathan Lucroy, but that would be all the damage the Brewers could manage. It was Gennett's 26th double and 46th RBI. Scooter's been red-hot in August, slashing .354/.360/.479 for the month.

Scooter Gennett went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Pirates.

Gennett continues his breakout season, as he's now hitting .310/.342/.477 after Sunday's two-hit game. The run batted in gave him 45 RBI on the season.
